Excessive Pain In The Lower Abdomen That Radiates To The Back During Menstruation?
Hello, I want to ask. Each menstrual period is always painful in the lower abdomen, and it can be up to 4 or 5 days. Is that reasonable? I’m 20 years old. The pain was to stab the backbone, sometimes also I could not stand for long. Even though I diligently exercise and eat vegetables.
Thank you for the question.
Pain in the lower abdomen to spread to the back during menstruation is usually reasonable due to the uterine muscle contraction which is quite severe when bleeding from menstruation. This pain can feel more intense indeed, for example if you are tired of activities, are stressed, consume certain types of food or drinks, and so on. Frequently, mild menstrual pain will improve with the following steps:
Warm compresses on painful areas Don't carelessly massage painful areas Rest more regularly and continue your exercise habits, at least 30 minutes every day Eat regularly, especially foods that are rich in antioxidants, such as vegetables, fruits, and whole grains Don't over-think Drink plenty of warm water Don't drink excessive amounts of caffeinated, carbonated drinks Stay away from alcohol and cigarettes Don't drink any drugs or herbs without doctor's advice In some cases, menstrual pain can also appear extremely severe if there is an illness, such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, myoma, pelvic inflammation, ovarian cyst, and so on. In cases like this, often the natural treatment as above can not significantly relieve the pain that arises. If you experience this condition, do not hesitate to check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician, yes. Often, doctors will recommend supporting examinations such as ultrasound so that if there is disease can be detected early.
I hope this helps.
