Menstruation implies a premenstrual syndrome that has different symptoms. These depend on the woman, because not all of them manifest themselves in the same way. They are given before the arrival of the rule and it lasts at most during the first 2 or 3 days of the period. One of the most annoying symptoms is pain in the lower abdominal area and in the kidneys. This pain is called dysmenorrhea.
Dysmenorrhea: very strong menstrual pain
- The menstrual cycle has 4 phases: ovulation, premenstruation, menstruation and postmenstruation. In each of them the female body undergoes a series of hormonal changes that affect it in one way or another. The topic we are dealing with is strong menstrual pain, so we are going to see in which phases we can have a stronger pain. It is common for women to suffer a few days of pain in the middle of the cycle, that is, during ovulation, but normally they are not too strong. If so, we will have to take alternatives to stop the pain, these can be therapies such as yoga or Pilates, moderate exercise, etc.
- Even so, when the pain can really become very annoying is during premenstruation. The days before are days of extreme suffering for many women. Sometimes, with the arrival of the period, the pain decreases a little, but in other cases the pain increases. This is why we have to have a continuous discipline so that the symptom is as less uncomfortable as possible. In this way, we have to know which method is most beneficial for us to control pain.
- Dysmenorrhea, the name given to severe pain associated with menstruation, has two phases. The first corresponds to young women and adolescents and the second to older women. In the first case the pain is very acute and lasts a few days, however in the second it can last up to a week. Anti-inflammatories will take effect on the same day, after having ingested several, therefore, if we know that we are prone to this, we must carry out activities that reduce pain.
