Abstract

Introduction: Dysmenorrhea is menstrual pain in such circumstances where great, forcing the patient to rest and leave the work or its way of life everyday, for several hours or several days (Simanjuntak, 2007). In Indonesia, menstrual cramps affect approximately 55% of menstruating women of childbearing age and 10% of them had severe symptoms that require bed rest. Noni (Morindacitrifolia L) is a fruit containing complete nutrition. Noni functioning as an analgesic has been known in the history of traditional medicine, so that’s what makes this plant is called "painkiller tree" or "headache tree". The purpose of this research was to find out the effect of Noni juice (Morindacitrifolia) on the reduction of menstrual cramps. Methods: The research employed Pre Experiment One - Group pre - post test design. The population of this study was teenage students in the Department of Nursing, Health Polytechnic of Malang, Ministry of Health of Indonesia, and in STIKES Kendedes who experienced menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea).To ensure that the samples represented the population, the techniques of consecutive sampling and random sampling were employed to select those who experienced menstrual cramps between the months of July and November 2014. The sample size was 25 teenage students. Noni juice was made from selected noni fruits that were unripe, fresh, green and hard and processed in the laboratory. The instrument used to assess the level of cramping pains (dysmenorrhea) was questionnaires using Descriptive Verbal Scale (VDS), which consisted of 6 levels of pain. Results: The results showed that before the treatment, the level of cramping pain of 17 respondents was moderate (68%, N = 25) and that of 7 respondents was severe (28%, N = 25). After the treatment, 18 respondents (72%, N = 25) did not experience cramping pain at all and 6 respondents (24%, N = 25) experienced mild pain. The statistical analysis using Wilcoxon test indicated that there was significant difference in the average rates of cramping pains before and after the treatment (p = 0.000). Conclusion: This suggested that noni juice could significantly reduce the cramping pains of menstruating teenage girls. Keywords: noni juice, menstrual pain response, teenage girls
