Menstrual Pain (Dysmenorrhea) – Period Pain

Menstrual Pain (Dysmenorrhea) - Period Pain | Medicline Dubai
Dysmenorrhea is the medical term for pain associated with menstruation. The pain usually occurs in the lower abdomen but can also spread to the lower back and thighs. It can start 1-2 days before your period and typically lasts less than 2-3 days.

There are two types of dysmenorrhea: primary and secondary. Primary dysmenorrhea is another name for common menstrual cramps that aren’t due to an underlying disease. These cramps usually begin 1-2 years after a woman starts getting her period.

Secondary dysmenorrhea is pain caused by a disorder in the woman’s reproductive organs, such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, uterine fibroids, or infection.

Symptoms can range from mild to severe and include:
  • A constant or throbbing pain in the lower abdomen
  • Pain that radiates to your lower back and thighs
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sweating or even fainting in severe cases

Over-the-counter medication, heat therapy (like a hot bath or heating pad), rest, and exercise can help alleviate menstrual pain. However, persistent or severe pain should be evaluated by Dr Sadeq from Medicline Dubai as it could indicate a more serious condition, such as endometriosis or uterine fibroids.
