Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), which includes physical, psychological and emotional symptoms that occur during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, has a negative impact on the quality of the relationship among married couples. The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of educating married men by two methods, pamphlet and short messages (SMS), on marital satisfaction of the couples. The study was experimental in nature. The sample consisted of 80 couples who had visited health centers in Yazd, Iran. The subjects were randomly assigned to the two training methods and pretested and post-tested on the outcome measures. The before to after the training increase in knowledge and practice in men and marital satisfaction of couples were statistically significant. The differences between the two training methods were not statistically significant. Pamphlets and SMS, if designed properly and based on the principles of psychology, can act as influential and almost equally effective educational tools in the context of PMS.
