Homeopathy Medicine for Dysmenorrhea
Primary dysmenorrhea refers to recurrent pain, whereas secondary dysmenorrhea results from disorders of the reproductive system. Dysmenorrhea is the medical term for painful menstrual periods that are brought on by uterine contractions.
SYMPTOMS OF DYSMENORRHEA
Menstrual cramps have the following symptoms:
- Lower abdominal pain that can be extremely painful and throbbing or cramping
- beginning one to three days prior to period, peaking 24 hours after it begins, and ending two to three days later
- Dull, continuous ache
- pain that spreads to the thighs and lower back
Some women also have:
- Loose stools
CAUSES OF DYSMENORRHEA
Prostaglandins, which are hormone-like compounds that cause pain and inflammation, cause the uterus to contract during the menstrual cycle in order to help expel its lining. Severe menstrual cramps are linked to higher levels of prostaglandins.
These things may result in menstrual cramps:
- Endometriosis: Most frequently on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, or tissue lining the pelvis, the uterine lining tissue implants itself outside the uterus.
- Uterine fibroids-Pain may be experienced as a result of these benign uterine growths.
- Adenomyosis-The uterine lining material starts to integrate into the uterine muscles.
- Pelvic inflammatory disease: Sexually transmitted bacteria are typically to blame for this infection of the female reproductive system.
- Cervical stenosis: In some women, the cervix’s opening is so small that it prevents the flow of menstrual blood, painfully raising the pressure inside the uterus.
If any of the following apply to you:
- Age is younger than 30
- When you were 11 or younger, late started puberty
- Menorrhagia, or excessive menstrual bleeding
- Irregular menstrual bleeding (metrorrhagia)
- Dysmenorrhea, or painful periods, runs in the family
COMPLICATIONS OF DYSMENORRHEA
While there are no other health issues associated with menstrual cramps, they can still be disruptive to social, professional, and academic activities.
However, some conditions that cause menstrual cramps may also have side effects, such as endometriosis, which can affect a woman’s ability to conceive, and pelvic inflammatory disease, which can scar the fallopian tubes and raise the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy.
HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT FOR DYSMENORRHEA
Every patient with dysmenorrhea may present with a different set of individual symptoms, which are carefully noted when deciding the homeopathic line of treatment. Homeopathy has a promising role to play in cases of dysmenorrhea. The medicines help to reduce the severity of the pain as well as to treat the cause, whenever possible.
