Dysmenorrhea

Every month I dont like having my period for the reason that, I hate to suffer having dysmenorrhea for how many days. Either before or during my period. It makes me curious of what and why I am having dysmenorrhea.

I hope this information about dysmenorrhea will help not just me but to my fellow women having the same problem like mine.

What is it?

The term menstrual disorders refers to any of a number of conditions that are related to the menstrual cycle. Menstruation is the shedding of the lining of the uterus (the endometrium) each month, also referred to as the menstrual period. Menstrual periods usually last for five to seven days. Dysmenorrhea is the term used to describe painful menstrual periods. There are two types of dysmenorrhea. Primary dysmenorrhea has no underlying cause. Secondary dysmenorrhea is caused by an underlying gynecological disorder.


Who gets it?

Primary dysmenorrhea affects more than 50 percent of all women who have a menstrual period. Approximately 5 to 15 percent of these women have severe pain that interferes with daily activities. Only about one-fourth of all women with dysmenorrhea have secondary dysmenorrhea, meaning there is an underlying cause of their symptoms. Dysmenorrhea usually begins during adolescence.


What causes it?

To understand dysmenorrhea, it's important to understand how the menstrual cycle works. Each month, the lining of the uterus, the endometrium, thickens to prepare for the egg that is released by the fallopian tubes. If the woman does not become pregnant during that cycle, then most of the endometrium is shed and bleeding occurs. The blood flows from the uterus, through the cervical canal, and out through the vagina. Primary dysmenorrhea occurs when the uterus contracts because the blood supply to the endometrium is reduced. This pain occurs only during a menstrual cycle where an egg is released. If the cervical canal is narrow, the pain may be worse as the endometrial tissue passes through the cervix. Pain can also be caused by a uterus that tilts backward instead of forward, low levels of physical activity, and emotional stress. Secondary dysmenorrhea can be caused by the growth of uterine tissue outside the uterus, called endometriosis; non-cancerous growths of muscle and fibrous tissue in the uterus, called fibroid tumors; the non-cancerous growth of the uterine lining in the muscular wall of the uterus, called adenomyosis; inflammation of the fallopian tubes; and the growth of scar tissue, or adhesions, between organs.

I have a former classmate in college who is now residing in Washington DC. She began having dysmenorrhea since she started her period. I recommeded her to use ANION and for the first time in her life she did not use any pain medication during her period. It is AMAZING. So if you have the same problem. The product can help you.
