Pain During Menstruation Accompanied By Weakness In The Legs?
Hello. every month I almost always have pain and the pain is very painful. And also my legs Keikut limp like that. Is there a herbal medicine to cure it ??? And is it true if someone who often experiences pain during menstruation will find it difficult to have children ????
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Menstrual pain or what in medical terms is also called dysmenorrhoea is pain characterized by muscle cramps in the lower abdominal area that appears just before or when a woman is menstruating. The pain intensity is quite high and can last up to 2-3 days.
When entering the menstrual period, the uterine wall will contract very strongly in order to erode the innermost lining. When this happens, the uterus presses on the blood vessels thereby stopping the supply of blood and oxygen to certain tissues. When oxygen supply is blocked, the tissue will carry out chemical compounds that cause pain, causing painful menstrual symptoms. At the same time, the body will also produce other chemical compounds, namely prostaglandins which function to encourage the uterus to contract even stronger and ultimately cause increased pain.
Apart from these normal mechanisms, menstrual pain can also increase if there are special medical conditions in women, such as:
Fibroids, abnormal cell growth in the uterine wall Endometriosis, growth of uterine tissue outside the uterus Pelvic inflammatory disease, or a bacterial condition infecting the female organs
Regarding your question, it is true that someone who often experiences menstrual pain can have difficulty having children, but not all. That is, as we have written above, there are several causes of painful menstruation and actually there are other possibilities besides that. What can make it difficult for you to have children is if the menstrual pain you feel is due to other medical conditions, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, for example. If there are no special conditions that prevent you from reproducing properly, your ability to get pregnant will not be impaired.
But of course, because this cannot be determined without a direct examination, you should have your condition checked by an obstetrician for further testing. Your doctor will do a history dig and physical examination as well as support to narrow down the possibilities.
Meanwhile, what you can do to reduce pain is warm compresses on the sore stomach, take warm baths, avoid cigarette smoke and stress, exercise regularly, take dietary supplements containing vitamins B, E and magnesium, and do relaxation such as massaging. You can also take over-the-counter painkillers by reading the instructions for use listed. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
