Buy Dysmenorrhoea Ayurvedic Medicines - Dysmenorrhoea is the term used to describe painful periods. It is of two types: Primary Dysmenorrhoea and Secondary Dysmenorrhoea

Primary Dysmenorrhoea: Normal menstruation that happens to be painful is known as primary dysmenorrhoea.

Causes: In primary dysmenorrhoea, the uterus works harder than normal to dislodge its lining and the resulting contractions and associated ischaemia (reduced blood flow) cause pain. The hormone-like compounds that prompt these contractions are prostaglandins.

In primary dysmenorrhoea, it is thought that the muscles of the uterus (womb) squeeze and contract harder than normal to dislodge the thickened lining (endometrium). These contractions may also reduce blood flow to the uterus, making the pain worse. Women with primary dysmenorrhoea tend to have raised levels of prostaglandins, which cause more intense contractions of the uterus than normal.

Women of any age can experience painful periods and some women find that periods are no longer painful after pregnancy and childbirth.
Secondary dysmenorrhoea: Period pain caused by certain reproductive disorders, such as endometriosis or fibroids, is known as secondary dysmenorrhoea. 
Causes: Some of the causes of secondary dysmenorrhoea include:

  • Endometriosis – the cells lining the uterus can move to other areas of the pelvis, causing severe pain during periods.

  • Fibroids – benign tumours made of muscle and tissue can grow inside the uterus and are thought to be affected by the sex hormone oestrogen.

Symptoms of dysmenorrhoea:

  • Pain in the lower abdomen that can spread to the lower back and legs.

  • Pain that is gripping or experienced as a constant ache, or a combination of both.

Typically pain starts when the period starts, or earlier. First 24 hours is the most painful. Clots are passed in the menstrual blood.

Dysmenorrhoea can be associated with:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Digestive problems, such as diarrhoea or constipation
  • Fainting
  • Premenstrual symptoms, such as tender breasts and a swollen abdomen, which may continue throughout the period
  • Pain continuing after the first 24 hours (this tends to subside after two or three days)

Treatment for primary dysmenorrhoea

Women with dysmenorrhoea need a thorough medical examination to make sure their period pain is not caused by certain reproductive disorders such as endometriosis or fibroids. Treatment options include:

  • Bed rest during the first day or so of the period
  • Applying heat, such as a hot water bottle, to the abdomen
  • Regular exercise and attention to overall physical fitness
  • Relaxation techniques
