Thanks for the question. Every woman will usually experience pain during menstruation. Normal pain is known as primary dysmenorrhea. This pain occurs due to the effects of prostaglandins produced by the body that cause uterine contractions to prevent heavy bleeding. Normal dysmenorrhea usually occurs in the first 48-72 hours and feels like continuous cramping in the lower abdomen that can radiate to the waist or thighs. This abdominal pain will improve in a few days along with reduced levels of prostaglandins in the body.
Severe abdominal pain that does not even improve with pain medication during menstruation should be suspected as secondary dysmenorrhea. Secondary dysmenorrhea is pain during menstruation which is usually caused by a certain health condition. This dysmenorrhea is accompanied by heavy or irregular menstruation, associated with infertility, not relieved by pain medication, associated with pain during sexual intercourse, or associated with abnormal vaginal discharge. Causes of secondary dysmenorrhea are fibroids, pelvic inflammation, endometriosis, or adenomyosis.
Please consult with a specialist in obstetrics and gynecology first for further examination. The doctor needs to know more about your complaints, your menstrual history, and your medical history. The doctor will perform a cervical examination, pelvic examination, and ultrasound to find the cause of your complaint. Further treatment depends on the results of the doctor's examination. For a while, if the pain is unbearable you can take paracetamol, ibuprofen, or mefenamic acid.
I hope this helps.
