Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine and analyse the effect of deep breathing relaxation technique and warm compress on decreasing the dysmenorrhea scale of students of SMPN 17 in Bengkulu city in 2014. This research is an experimental research that the quantitative approach used is the Queasy Experimental Design method and the design used post-test only with a control group design. The data were collected by using a questionnaire which includes the respondents’ bio data, the characteristics of the respondent’s menstruation, the measurement of dysmenorrhea scale by using the NRS (Numeric Rating Scale), the assessment of the implementation of deep breathing relaxation technique, the assessment of the implementation of warm compress, and the measurement of the scale of fatigue. The results showed that (1) the characteristics of menstruation of respondents included (a) menstruation first appeared in the early teenage (11 to 13 years) as many as 47 people (71.21%) and middle teenage (> 13 to 14 years old) 19 people (28.79%), (2) there was a difference in the dysmenorrhea scale between before and after being given the intervention in the relaxation technique and warm compress groups, (3) there was a difference in the dysmenorrhea scale between before and after being given the intervention in the warm compress group. The decrease in dysmenorrhea scale in the warm compress group was more significant than the deep breathing relaxation technique group, and (4) there was no relationship between the fatigue factor and the dysmenorrhea scale in the deep breathing relaxation technique group and warm compress.
