The research tool which we used was a questionnaire related to stress and coping strategies before and it was completed before and two months after the intervention in two groups. The students were trained the coping skills in the intervention group over five weeks, for 60 to 90 minutes.

Based on the results of Wilcoxon test average tension score’s comparison before Menstruation and also before and after intervention in each different statistical group is meaningful (p<0.01). Despite the reduction of tension score before Menstruation in the group of intervention difference, the comparison is not so meaningful (p=0.07).
