Painful periods are one of the most prevalent period complaints, but they don't always get the attention they need. Dysmenorrhea is the medical term for painful periods. Primary dysmenorrhea and secondary dysmenorrhea are the two types of painful periods.
The term "primary dysmenorrhea" refers to a condition in which the organs are not damaged. This pain is most commonly associated with the days leading up to your period. Primary dysmenorrhea is caused by prostaglandins, and period back pain is a referred pain. Some variables, such as beginning menstruation before the age of 12, being preoccupied, or being a smoker, might make menstruation uncomfortable.
Dysmenorrhea caused by pelvic abnormalities is known as secondary dysmenorrhea. The ovaries, fallopian tube, or uterus could all be involved. Period discomfort can potentially be a symptom of pelvic inflammatory disease. Inflammation can be caused by a family history of endomyosis and fibrosis.
Treatment is determined on the cause. There is no medical abnormality in the pelvic with primary dysmenorrhea. Second dysmenorrhea, on the other hand, necessitates medical attention for the underlying medical condition.
Pain can be relieved by taking simple steps such as situating yourself in a specific way. Using a heating pad or hot water on the tummy might also be beneficial. Stretching or yoga can help ease cramp pain. Some nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are beneficial in some people.
