Painful Menstruation

Also known as dysmenorrhoea, menstrual cramps can affect as many as eight out of ten women at some point of their lives. Medical science proposes that primarily dysmenorrhoea is caused by excess production of prostaglandins (a hormone which regulates uterine contractions) following a decline in progesterone levels. Some fortunate women suffer no more than three days of minor inconvenience whilst others face a week of miserable cramps, headache, sickness and heavy bleeding.
Symptoms
  • Cramps in the lower abdomen along with or before the onset of the menstrual cycle.
  • A constant dull pain which is usually relieved with menstruation.
  • Nausea, fatigue, abdominal distention.
