Dysmenorrhea, also referred to as painful periods or menstrual cramps, is pain during menstruation. Its usual onset occurs round the time that menstruation begins. Symptoms typically last but three days. The pain is typically within the pelvis or lower abdomen. Other symptoms may include back pain, diarrhea or nausea

Dysmenorrhea can occur without an underlying problem. Underlying issues which will cause dysmenorrhea include uterine fibroids, adenomyosis, and most ordinarily, endometriosis. It's more common among those with heavy periods, irregular periods, those whose periods started before twelve years aged and people who have a coffee weight . A pelvic exam and ultrasound in individuals who are sexually active could also be useful for diagnosis Conditions that ought to be ruled out include extrauterine pregnancy, pelvic disease, interstitial cystitis and chronic pelvic pain. Dysmenorrhea occurs less often in those that exercise regularly and people who have children early in life. Treatment may include the utilization of a hot pad. Medications which will help include NSAIDs like ibuprofen, hormonal contraception and therefore the IUD with progestogen. Taking vitamin B1 or magnesium may help. Evidence for yoga, acupuncture and massage is insufficient. Surgery could also be useful if certain underlying problems are present. Estimates of the share of girls of reproductive age affected vary from 20%to 90%. It's the foremost common menstrual disorder. Typically, it starts within a year of the primary menstrual period. When there's no underlying cause, often the pain improves with age or following having a toddler.

The main symptom of dysmenorrhea is pain concentrated within the lower abdomen or pelvis. It's also commonly felt within the right or left side of the abdomen. It's going to radiate to the thighs and lower back.

Symptoms often co-occurring with menstrual pain include nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, headache, dizziness, disorientation, fainting and fatigue. Symptoms of dysmenorrhea often begin immediately after ovulation and may last until the top of menstruation. is usually this can be this is often because dysmenorrhea is often related to changes in hormonal levels within the body that occur with ovulation especially, prostaglandins induce abdominal contractions which will cause pain and gastrointestinal symptoms. The utilization of certain sorts of contraception pills can prevent the symptoms of dysmenorrhea because they stop ovulation from occurring.

Secondary dysmenorrhea is that the diagnosis given when menstruation pain may be a secondary cause to a different disorder. Conditions causing dysmenorrhea include endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and uterine adenomyosis. Rarely, congenital malformations, intrauterine devices, certain cancers, and pelvic infections cause dysmenorrhea. If the pain occurs between menstrual periods, lasts longer than the primary few days of the amount, or isn't adequately relieved by the utilization of non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or hormonal contraceptives, this might be a symbol for secondary causes of dysmenorrhea.

When laparoscopy is employed for diagnosis, the foremost common explanation for dysmenorrhea is endometriosis, in approximately 70%of adolescents. Other causes of dysmenorrhea include leiomyoma, adenomyosis, ovarian cysts, pelvic congestion, and cavitated and accessory uterine mass.
