Background & aim: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) in addition to reducing the quality of life, correspondingly affects the social and economic performance of individuals and their daily lives. The purpose of the present study was to determine the prevalence of PMS and some related factors among female students of Yasuj University of Medical Sciences in 2018.
 
Methods: In the present descriptive-analytic study, 193 female students of Yasuj University of Medical Sciences whom met the inclusion criteria, were selected through convenience sampling. In addition to demographic form, the PSST questionnaire (to screen the premenstrual syndrome) and short form of WHO Quality of Life Questionnaire (WHOQOL) were used. After receiving the ethics code, required permissions, and the informed consent form, the research questionnaires were filled out by the participants. The collected data were analyzed by SPSS software version 21 using descriptive statistics, mean, standard deviation, and Chi square, t-test as well as ANOVA tests.
 
Results: In this study 73 students (37.8%) had PMS and 24 students (12.4%) had PMDD. The results displayed that people with physical activity had significantly less PMS or PMDD than those without physical activity (p <0.05). There was no significant difference in mean body mass index in the three groups of people with PMS, PMDD and healthy (p> 0.05). The results correspondingly indicated that the mean of physical and psychological dimensions of quality of life in healthy people was significantly higher than the two groups with PMS and PMMD (p <0.05).
 
Conclusion: Given the relatively high prevalence of PMS among college students, the attention of university officials to this issue and the development of students’ mental health is important. Due to the association of this disease with physical activity and exercise, encouraging students to do regular exercise can reduce the severity of PMS symptoms and its complications.
