The period of the study ranged from September 6 to October 10, 2010. As a study instrument, this study used a questionnaire developed based on questions from studies published by An Seung-duk(2003), Yun Byeong-han(2002) and Kim Ji-min(2008). This study used SPSS 17.0, for a frequency analysis, a cross-tabulation and a chi-squared test.
The results of the study are presented as follows:
43.4% of the subjects used the complementary alternative therapy. 40% of the subjects decided to use it themselves and 46.5% through recommendations from friends or families. 56.3% visited used oriental medical clinics or herbal medicine shops as places to use the therapy,
42.5% received medicine, acupuncture, moxibustion and cupping at oriental medical clinics and 23% received them from private clinics.
55% used the therapy below three month and 25.5% below six months.
As expenses of the therapy, 56.3% spent less than 500,000 won a year and 43.5% more than 500,000 won a year. After the therapy, 51% answered they were satisfied with the therapy and 9% answered they were unsatisfied.
In conclusion, it was discovered that use rate of the therapy is increasing, the subjects decided to use the therapy for themselves or through recommendation from acquaintances, and they mainly depended on reliable oriental medical clinics or folk remedies against menstrual pain.
