The population was the students of Diploma Midwifery Program who had dysmenorrhea. The intervention of Capsicum oleoresin patch was evaluated in the lower back during 6-8 hours on the first 3 days of menstruation period. The results were significant, reflecting the effectiveness of pain dysmenorrhea reduction before and after using patches which was evaluated by the pain scale measurement.
