Stomach Cramps During Menstruation?
Hello I am married 23 years I just menstruated last month and then the 9th was finished around the 18th of the month and then in this month on the 6th already menstruated again this is the first time I feel stomach ache until 2 days in a row each abs sitting brought standing stomach cramps. Does this still include normal menstrual blood? thank you
Good morning Atikah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The main complaint that you experience with abdominal cramps during menstruation, is a condition called in medical language with dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea or menstrual pain is abdominal cramps that occur related to the menstrual cycle, whose intensity of severity can be very disruptive to daily life. Among the factors that increase the likelihood of someone experiencing dysmenorrhea are:
Under 30 years old
Menstruation is not smooth
Excessive bleeding during menstruation
Having a mother or sister who also experiences menstrual pain
Have a smoking habit
Has experienced puberty before the age of 11 years
If it is caused by a disease, the possibility of the disease can be endometriosis, myoma, pelvic inflammation and cervical constriction. Our advice, if this condition is already bothering you, immediately consult a gynecologist for further examination, through a history, physical examination and support. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile do not need to worry too much, avoid cigarette smoke, maintain ideal body weight, adequate rest, multiply the consumption of fruits and vegetables, reduce pain by compressing warm the painful part, take a shower or soak with warm water, and may consume pain relievers sold freely by reading the rules of use listed. So, hopefully answering your question.
