Simply Odette - February 1

Most of the time during my monthly visit, I experience severe pain and discomfort. I just want to know if this is an experience normal for us women or I need to be alarmed because this is already a serious matter?

Well, painful periods every month can be a sign of many things. that's why I don't want you to be very calm about it. Do some immediate action, see your doctor for some check-up for you to have proper treatment, to avoid worsen the situation.

Although some pain during menstruation is normal which we commonly called as dysmenorrhea, excessive pain is not cause that pain might be associated with problems of the uterus or other pelvic organs.

If that is just a primary dysmenorrhea, that can be treated with Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs(NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen and naproxen.

To be sure that you do not have any other complications, best to have a regular check up with your doctor and a papsmear once a year.

Simply Odette, some pain during menstruation is normal, excessive pain is not. The medical term for excessively painful period is DYSMENORRHEA. Primary dysmenorrhea refers to menstrual pain that occurs around the time that menstrual periods first begin. This type of pain is usually not related to any specific problems with the uterus or other pelvic organs.So, you don't have to worry that much.

Just wanna add, if it is already SECONDARY DYSMENORRHEA meaning the menstrual pain that develops later, after periods have been more normal, and is often related to problems in the uterus or other pelvic organs, such as: OVARIAN CYSTS, PELVIC INFLAMMATORY DISEASE, PREMENSTRUAL SYNDROME, AND SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES.This time be alarmed and ask your doctor for some medicines because this is already a serious matter.

I had a friend who was also sufferred every time she had her period. I was so worried about her action. She was advice to consult a gynecologist but because of financial matter, she preferred to seek an advice of a faith healer. The time came when she had been examined by the doctor but it was already too late. That was already a cancer.

The type of pain you have been experience looks like the same as endometriosis. this kind of pain weakens our feet and the uterus would feel as if it was being stabbed by a couple of big needles.

What causes endometriosis??? Is this an alarming disease?


kelly thomas - February 15

There are periods that's sometimes painful, but actually, it's normal.But for you to be sure, I think it's good if you just consult a doctor..have some test to know if what you experience about painful menstruation is still normal or not. Don't just take it for granted.

Just be wise in terms of health, you have to do some research or seek an advise from the an ob-gyne. Don't make any self medication.It might trigger a worst result.
