daughter experience terrific pain every month! I tried
even D& C! No relief!”
“The three days are hectic
for me, even I roll on the floor, vomiting, cramps,
and kills me every month”.
experiences are common in many young girls. Pain during
menses is medically termed as Dysmenorrhoea. There are
probably few women who can truthfully claim they never
had dysmenorrhoea, the painful menstruation or menstrual
cramps. The majority of women are thought to experience
some degree of dysmenorrhoea. There are two types of
In primary dysmenorrhea,
no disease or no other medical cause can be found for
the pain and other symptoms, which may include backache,
diarrhoea, dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting and
a feeling of tenseness. Primary dysmenorrhoea frequently
affects women in their teens and early twenties, who
have never had a baby.
The symptoms are
caused by prostaglandin, a natural hormone produced
by cells in the uterine lining. The level of prostaglandin
increases in the second half of the menstrual cycle.
When a woman’s period begins, the cells in the
uterine lining release prostaglandin as they are shed.
Women with severe primary dysmenorrhoea have significantly
higher prostaglandin levels in their menstrual fluid
than other women. The only good thing can be said about
primary dysmenorrhoea is that usually the symptoms don’t
last very long. Some women have pain for about two days,
but rarely longer.
Narrowing of cervical
canal is suspected as another cause. Dilatation and
curettage is performed to counter this cause now a days.
This could be the reason that pain will vanish after
delivery of a child.
It is caused by
a physical condition. Women who suffer from it tend
to be older than those with primary dysmenorrhoea. Some
conditions that may be responsible for secondary dysmenorrhoea
Adenomyosis - uterine tissue growing into the uterine
Endometrial polyp’s - growths in the uterine lining.
Endometriosis - uterine tissue that grows outside the
uterus, in the ovaries and other locations. Endometriosis
is the most common reason.
Fibroids (growths in the uterus).
Narrowing of the cervix (the entrance to the uterus)
as it opens into the vagina.
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID).
Use of an intrauterine device (IUD).
Even though the acute management of pain
is difficult in initial stages, gradually many patients
had permanently relieved from pain. Since the homoeopathic
medicines focuses on the root, it could regulate the
possible hormones, which causes pain. The accompanying
symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, giddiness and cramps
would give a homoeopath for better follow up in treating
a case. Many cases responded well and totally free
from pain within couple of months.
