Dysmenorrhea, also known as menstrual cramps, is a common condition in which women experience throbbing or cramping pains in the lower abdomen before, during, and after their periods.

Menstrual cramps can be so painful that they prevent some women from going about their daily lives for a few days each month. For others, the discomfort can be so bad that it makes life difficult.

Menstrual cramps that aren’t caused by an underlying condition tend to lessen with age and frequently get better once a woman has given birth. Menstrual cramps that aren’t caused by an underlying condition tend to lessen with age and frequently get better once a woman has given birth. Treating any underlying cause is key to reducing the pain.

Prostaglandins, which are hormone-like compounds involved in pain and inflammation, cause the uterine muscle to contract during your period to aid in the expulsion of its lining. Severe menstrual cramps are linked to higher levels of prostaglandins.

The pain from this is similar to the chest pain that results from blocked blood vessels depriving parts of the heart of food and oxygen. Severe contractions may constrict the blood vessels feeding the uterus.

The following factors may also contribute to menstrual cramps:

Endometriosis.In this uncomfortable condition, the tissue lining your uterus implants outside of it, most frequently on your ovaries, fallopian tubes, or the tissue lining your pelvis.

Uterine fibroids.There may be pain coming from these benign growths in the uterine wall.

Adenomyosis.In this situation, the uterine lining tissue starts to encroach on the uterus’s muscular walls.

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).Sexually transmitted bacteria are typically to blame for this infection of the female reproductive system.

Cervical stenosis.The cervix opening may be so small in some women that it prevents menstruation from occurring, leading to an uncomfortable rise in uterine pressure.

Symptoms–Menstrual cramps can cause a dull, constant ache in your lower abdomen, a throbbing or cramping pain that may be severe, and pain that radiates to your thighs and lower back.

Additionally, some women report experiencing a headache, dizziness, nausea, and loose stools.
