Dysmenorrhea or Menstrual Cramps is the medical term for painful menstrual periods. It happens because your uterus contracts to shed its lining. The pain typically begins just before your period and subsides after a few days. Primary dysmenorrhea refers to recurrent pain with no identifiable cause. Secondary dysmenorrhea results from conditions like endometriosis.


Two types of dysmenorrhea:

Primary dysmenorrhea

Primary dysmenorrhea is the name for menstrual cramps that come back every time you have get period, but aren’t due to another medical condition. Pain usually begins one or two days before you get your period or when the bleeding actually starts. You may feel pain ranging from mild to severe in your lower abdomen, back or thighs. The pain usually subsides within two or three days. Primary dysmenorrhea is the more common type of dysmenorrhea.

Secondary dysmenorrhea

If you have painful periods because of a condition or an infection in your reproductive organs, it’s secondary dysmenorrhea. Pain from secondary dysmenorrhea usually begins earlier in your menstrual cycle and lasts longer than typical menstrual cramps. For example, you may experience cramping several days before your period and the pain may last until the bleeding completely stops.

Symptoms of painful menstrual cramps:
Aching, throbbing pain in your abdomen (pain may be severe at times).
Feeling of pressure in your abdomen.
Pain in your hips, lower back and inner thighs.
Other symptoms like nausea, dizziness and headaches.
In most cases, the pain begins in the 24 to 48 hours before your period and subsides within 48 hours of getting your period.

Conditions that can cause
Secondary dysmenorrhea include:
Fibroids (benign tumors)
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
Cervical stenosis
Congenital conditions
