Low Back Pain, And Lower Abdominal Pain During Menstruation?
Good night, I want to ask, 2 days ago my girlfriend likes to feel low back pain, and under the stomach also feels painful just when I menstruate, but the pain is only periodically, does that include symptoms of pelvic inflammation? Thank you 🙏
Hello Tomo, Thank you for the question.
What other complaints did your partner experience? Does your partner also complain of abnormal vaginal discharge, fever, pain during urination, frequent urination, incomplete feeling after urinating, difficult urination, and others?
Pelvic inflammation is an infection that attacks the cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. This condition usually occurs in women of reproductive age who are sexually active. Sexually transmitted infections are a common cause of pelvic inflammation. Symptoms experienced by patients such as pain in the pelvis, pain in the lower abdomen, pain during sexual intercourse, abnormal vaginal discharge, fever, nausea, vomiting, pain during urination.
Abdominal pain that is felt during menstruation (dysmenorrhea) is a normal thing to happen, however, it is also necessary to know whether this complaint is primary dysmenorrhea (not caused by certain medical conditions) or secondary dysmenorrhea (caused by other medical conditions). Primary dysmenorrhea is caused by prostaglandins released by the body that cause uterine contractions to prevent heavy bleeding. Abdominal pain in primary dysmenorrhea usually appears before menstruation up to the first 48 hours. In secondary dysmenorrhea, sufferers usually experience abnormal vaginal discharge, heavy menstrual bleeding, abdominal pain does not subside despite taking pain medication. If complaints of peurt pain are only felt during menstruation, there is usually nothing to worry about unless your partner has other symptoms that lead to secondary dysmenorrhea.
Complaints of back pain itself can be caused by a variety of health conditions such as urinary tract infections, kidney stones, pelvic inflammation, muscle pain. To be sure, of course, you need an examination by a doctor directly. Please advise your partner to see a doctor. Besides needing to know more clearly about this complaint, the doctor also needs to do an examination on your partner. Further treatment will be determined by the doctor after knowing the medical condition that underlies this complaint.
In the meantime, please follow the following suggestions:
avoid intercourse avoid the habit of holding back urinating multiply water consumption use underwear that is easy to absorb sweat keep the genital area but clean and dry consumption of pain relievers if lumbago worsens may help.
