Women will experience their first menstruation which is called menarche. One of the problems that women of childbearing age often experience is complaints during the menstrual period, known as Premenstrual Syndrome. Female students are a group of women of childbearing age, and are also not free from this complaint. Many factors cause Premenstrual Syndrome, one of which is lifestyle. There are still some who live lifestyles that are not good for nursing students, but there is no possibility of living a good lifestyle. The objective of this study was to identify the relationship between lifestyle and the incidence of premenstrual syndrome in nursing students. This study used correlational quantitative descriptive research with a cross sectional approach. A sample of 160 people using the Slovin formula was taken using a consecutive sampling technique and data using the sPAF and lifestyle questionnaire were collected via Google Form which was then processed using the Spearman Rank test with the inclusion criteria of students from the Nursing Department of the Undergraduate Nursing Study Program, Faculty of Medicine, Tanjungpura University class of 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 as well as those who have reached menarche. Exclusion criteria were not being willing to be a respondent and female students having reproductive organ disease. Most nursing students experience a normal age of menarche and experience a normal menstrual cycle. The lifestyle of nursing students is not good, and most of the cases of Premenstrual Syndrome are asymptomatic to mild. The results of the Spearman rank analysis test obtained a significance value of p=0.498 (p<0.05). There is no relationship between lifestyle and the incidence of premenstrual syndrome in nursing students.
