Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The uterine muscle contractions that are strong enough to release menstrual blood during the early days of menstruation can cause quite disturbing pain and cramps (heartburn). Generally, pain and cramps during menstruation are dominant in the lower abdominal area, they can also spread to the pelvis, genitals, and anus. This condition can be similar to the sensation you feel when having a bowel movement. As long as the intensity of this complaint is mild, does not cause you difficulty in carrying out light activities, and does not also appear accompanied by other complaints, such as abnormal menstrual bleeding, fever, urinary disorders, vomiting, and so on, then the possibility of this condition is not dangerous. Increased levels of the hormone progesterone just before menstruation are also predicted to trigger constipation which can trigger discomfort as you experience.
However, if your complaint feels very disturbing, recurs very often, or appears accompanied by other complaints as mentioned above, then we recommend that you check with your doctor immediately. The doctor will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to check for the possibility of an underlying disease, for example:
Reproductive organ disorders, such as endometriosis, pelvic inflammation, ovarian cysts
Digestive organ disorders, such as colitis, hemorrhoids, anal fissures, obstructive ileus, digestive infections
Urinary organ disorders, such as infections, stones
Mental disorders, such as premenstrual dysphoric disorder, psychosomatic disorders, and so on
As a first attempt, try your complaint by:
Increase fluid intake (especially by drinking lots of warm water)
Limit excessive caffeine consumption
Do not consume alcohol and also smoke
Exercise regularly 3 to 4 times a week
Apply warm water to the uncomfortable area
Divert your discomfort by doing productive activities, such as working, exercising, doing hobbies
Not just consuming drugs
Hope it helps ..
