Hi Inge, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Menstrual pain or what is also called dysmenorrhea is a very normal thing to happen to women of reproductive age. Dysmenorrhea can occur because during menstruation, the uterus releases a substance called prostaglandin. This substance will cause severe contractions in the uterus that cause pain. This pain can spread to the groin, thigh, and back. Dysmenorrhea can also be accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, fatigue, feeling like having a cold. This painful condition can last from the first day of menstruation to the third day and will slowly decrease.


The following are some of the things that can cause your menstrual abdominal pain (dysmenorrhea) to persist:

endometriosis
adenomyosis, which is a condition in which uterine endometrial tissue grows into the uterine muscles
infection of the reproductive tract (inflammation of the pelvis)
cervical stenosis, which is reduction of the cervical opening / cervix
fibroids / myoma

Because you have experienced this pain for 1 week and you say that the pain is very heavy, it's a good idea to check with your obstetrician. The obstetrician can perform an ultrasound examination which can help to see more clearly the inside of your uterus to see if there are certain abnormalities in the uterus that could be causing these symptoms.


In the meantime, you can help relieve the pain you feel by taking painkillers such as paracetamol. Try to lie down and compress your lower abdomen with a warm compress. Drink large amounts and eat adequate amounts. Henceforth do regular exercise because regular exercise can help reduce pain in dysmenorrhea.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
