WHAT IS DYSMENORRHEA?
Dysmenorrhea is a medical term for pain experienced during menstruation . It can be primary, when it has no apparent cause, or secondary, when it is due to a pathology such as endometriosis or a gynecological disease.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS ?
Symptoms of dysmenorrhea include pelvic pain, lower back pain, uterine contractions, vomiting, bleeding, and menstrual pain. They can start a few hours or days before menstruation and last up to a week.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DYSMENORRHEA AND ENDOMETRIOSIS?
Dysmenorrhea and endometriosis are two different conditions although often confused. Dysmenorrhea, also known as menstrual cramps , is pelvic pain that occurs during menstruation. It can be mild to intense and may be associated with headaches, nausea or vomiting. However, endometriosis is a chronic condition where the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of it, often in the pelvic area.
Symptoms can include chronic pelvic pain, severe menstrual cramps, heavy bleeding, and difficulty getting pregnant.
MENSTRUAL PAIN: WHEN TO CONSULT A DOCTOR?
If you experience significant pain during your period, you can consult a gynecologist to confirm whether it is dysmenorrhea . She or he will be able to carry out an examination as well as additional tests to determine if the period pains are due to another pathology such as endometriosis.
