When comparing improvements of pain within the hypnosis group versus those receiving pain medication (NSAIDs), the decreases in pain with hypnosis were longer lasting.

Dysmenorrhea refers to experiencing cramps and pelvic pain associated with menstruation. The group that received hypnosis for pain and cognitive behavioral therapy proved effective in pain reduction for participants.
