Answer

In a cross-sectional study of 311 female Iranian undergraduate students (aged 18-27 y), the prevalence of primary dysmenorrhea was 89.1%. [49] Factors that were significantly associated with higher dysmenorrhea pain intensity included younger age as well as familial factors (eg, low maternal formal education, family history of dysmenorrhea), social factors (living at home), and menstruation factors (eg, higher menstrual bleeding severity and shorter menstrual intervals). [49]
