Every months it is always the same cycle for me every time my period arrived. Often I called it dysmenorrhea attack because I can’t think clean, always in the bed, can’t eat properly and I have this feeling that I want to vomit. I know many woman experience this during their period but I think my is too distracting and tiring. The first time I experience my period, I was not suffering this much and it just started when I went to college and it’s getting worse every year. I seldom experience it without the pain and the crazy feeling but often the pain s killing me. It so happen I’m use to the pain, so I just sleep and not think about the pain or sometime if I can’t take it anymore, i will buy pain reliever just to ease the painful of my period. I’ve been to different OBGYN and they don’t find any problem after the examination. And now, I’m just wondering if it is just my lifestyle or I really have a problem. I’m still thinking if I buy pain reliever or not because I don’t wan to get use to taking medicine every time I’m ill or having menstrual pain. And the home remedy that I try, only lasted for a couple of hours then back to the uncomfortable feeling again. I’m planning go to a OB-GYN again for check-up but I’m to afraid to learn that their is something wrong with me. I just wish I don’t have myoma.
Dysmenorrhea (or dysmenorrhoea) is a gynecological medical condition of pain during menstruation that interferes with daily activities, as defined by ACOG and others. Still, dysmenorrhea is often defined simply as menstrual pain, or at least menstrual pain that is excessive. This article uses the dysmenorrhea definition of menstrual pain that interferes with daily activities, and uses the term menstrual pain as any pain during menstruation whether it is normal or abnormal.
Menstrual pain is often used synonymously with menstrual cramps, but the latter may also refer to menstrual uterine contractions, which are generally of higher strength, duration and frequency than in the rest of the menstrual cycle. Dysmenorrhea can feature different kinds of pain, including sharp, throbbing, dull, nauseating, burning, or shooting pain. Dysmenorrhea may precede menstruation by several days or may accompany it, and it usually subsides as menstruation tapers off. Dysmenorrhea may coexist with excessively heavy blood loss, known as menorrhagia.
Dysmenorrhea can be classified as either primary or secondary based on the absence or presence of an underlying cause. Secondary dysmenorrhea is dysmenorrhea which is associated with an existing condition. The most common cause of secondary dysmenorrhea is endometriosis. Other causes include leiomyoma, adenomyosis, ovarian cysts, and pelvic congestions. The presence of a copper IUD can also cause dysmenorrhea. In patients with adenomyosis, the levonorgestrel intrauterine system (Mirena) was observed to provide relief.
