Solutions for Dysmenorrhea

Posted by Tracii H.

Dysmenorrhea is painful menstruation and is the most common of all gynecologic complaints, and the leading cause of absenteeism from work, school, and other activities among women. In addition to identifiable pathological causes, number of additional factors can lower the pain threshold, causing worsening dysmenorrhea. Common factors include anemia, an increase in obesity, chronic illness, overwork, stress in general, diabetes, and poor nutrition. Therefore, it would make sense to try all month to build nutrition, avoid stress through relaxation, exercise, and to avoid fatty, sugar-laden, or overly salty foods as well as foods to which you are allergic/sensitive.

If these measures aren’t helpful after 2 months, you may find that it helps to begin taking an NSAID like Ibuprofen or Aleve up to two days BEFORE your period, which can decrease prostaglandin formation. It’s important to save these medications for occasional use, however, due to their negative effects on the stomach and possibly the heart. A few days of usage per month shouldn’t cause too much damage, as long as you don’t make it an everyday habit. There are other painkillers, both OTC and natural, that can be used for less debilitating aches and pains.
