Lumbago During Menstruation.?
BismillahSorry for the first time I want to ask, I have a friend who every time he menstruates he feels bone pain in the back. Please help what is the cause of it and how to deal with the pain? Thank you
During menstruation, a hormone called prostaglandin comes out. This prostaglandin stimulates uterine contractions which are useful for removing endometrial tissue (what we call menstrual blood). In women who have high levels of the hormone prostaglandin, it can cause strong uterine contractions which ultimately cause severe pain in both the lower abdomen and back. This is because there are innervation related to them. In addition, prostaglandins can also cause headaches, pain in other parts, nausea, vomiting and other uncomfortable symptoms during menstruation.
Pain that is unbearable during menstruation should not be underestimated. Unbearable pain can be caused by:
Endometriosis, ie endometrial tissue that grows improperly, for example in the ovaries, in the abdominal cavity, etc. Adenomyosis, endometrial tissue that grows into the uterine muscle Pelvic inflammation Medium IUD use Stenosis or narrowing of the cervix
Annisa suggested that Annisa's friend consult her obstetrician. The obstetrician will conduct question and answer, physical examination and ultrasound or other examinations on Annisa's friend. After knowing the cause, the doctor can provide appropriate treatment.
