When period pain is not normal
Do you suffer bad period pain? You shouldn’t have to
Period pain is common, so we tend to think it just goes with the territory of having periods. But most normal period pain will disappear with the right diet and therapeutic herbal medicine.
Put it this way: If it doesn’t disappear, then it’s not normal period pain. It’s strong period pain and might be a sign of an underlying medical condition. There are several hidden factors that trigger inflammatory reproductive problems like period pain.
What is normal period pain?
Normal period pain (primary dysmenorrhea) is a bit of cramping in your lower pelvis or back. It occurs during the first day or two of your period and improves with ibuprofen. It doesn’t interfere with your daily activities.
Normal period pain is caused by the release of prostaglandins in your uterus and usually improves as you get older.
Severe period pain (secondary dysmenorrhea) is throbbing, burning, searing, or stabbing pain that lasts for many days and can even occur between periods. It doesn’t improve with ibuprofen, and it’s so bad you vomit and sometimes miss school or work. It can also be linked to depression and anxiety.
Severe period pain can be caused by increased inflammatory markers, nutritional deficiencies, immune responses and hormonal problems.
