Primary Reason Why Monthly Period Hurts So Much - MUST READ!



Menstrual cramps, also known as dysmenorrhea or period pains, are painful sensations felt in the lower abdomen that can occur both before and during a woman's menstrual period.

The pain ranges from dull and annoying to severe and extreme.

But ever wondered why there's always pain during period?

When it comes to that time of the month, mild cramping, bloating, and irritability – although nuisances – are all to be expected.

Usually this takes the form of cramping that begins within three years of the first period and decreases in intensity with age. Some believe that cramping is caused by excessive amounts of prostaglandin, a hormone-like substance typically involved in pain and inflammation processes.

Prostaglandins make their big appearance at the onset of labor, when they cause the powerful contractions that push the baby out. But even outside of the delivery room, prostaglandins still initiate contractions of the uterus.

It's these muscle twistings that can, when severe and prolonged, contribute to menstrual discomfort by temporarily cutting off the blood supply to the uterus, depriving the muscle of oxygen and causing pain.

Two types of period pain:

1. Primary Dysmenorrhoea

- is the most common type of painful periods. This occurs where there is no underlying problem of the womb (uterus) or pelvis. It often occurs in teenagers and women in their 20s.

2. Secondary Dysmenorrhoea

- is pain caused by a problem of the womb or pelvis. This is less common, and is more likely to occur in women in their 30s and 40s.

Indeed, some people's cramps are so bad that they're debilitating. If this is the case, see a gynecologist or health care provider for an examination, to rule out other possible causes for the cramping.
