Data were collected through a researcher-made questionnaire based on the health belief model (HBM) and the validity was controlled by specialists and the reliability was assessed by Cronbach’s alpha test (α = 0.957). Data was analyzed using SPSS 19 through descriptive and statistical paired t-test and ANOVA repeated measure test with a significant level of less than 0.05.

Results: Educational intervention increases the average rating in health belief structures among participants (p < 0.001) but this increase did not take place in the guidelines for action structures (p = 0.39).

Conclusion: To maintain and promote women’s health is an educational priority. Nutritional education intervention promoted the nutritional behaviors and reduced dysmenorrhea among women examined.
