Pain during periods is medically known as dysmenorrhea... Most of the time it's spasmodic or primary dysmenorrhea due to increased prostaglandins..it may be due to fibroids as well... If the pain is starting 4 to 5 days prior to the periods suggestive of secondary dysmenorrhea it may be due to pelvic inflammatory disease,endometriosis etc...over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or naproxen sodium , at regular doses starting the day before you expect your period to begin will help you. Prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as mefenamic acid, also are available...I would suggest you to consult nearest gynecologists for clinical examination and for evaluation they will do the needful
Hi there.. I can understand your concern.. pain during periods is called dysmenorrhoea.. it's normal and everyone gets dysmenorrhoea, pain is bearable and stays just for 1-2days and it's sign of ovulatory cycle.. but if the pain is severe and for more days then there could be cause for it.. causes of dysmenorrhoea are Fibroids, adenomyosis, Endometriosis.. please get ultrasound of abdomen pelvis done once to rule out any pathology.. treatment includes treating underlying cause, hot fomentation, pain killers like tablet mefenemic acid, intrauterine device containing progesterone, oral pills... please consult gynecologist once..
