Hi, Dysmenorrhea refers to the symptom of painful menstruation. It can be divided into 2 broad categories: primary (occurring in the absence of pelvic pathology) and secondary (resulting from identifiable organic diseases). The following risk factors are associated with more severe episodes of dysmenorrhea: Earlier age at menarche, Long menstrual periods, Heavy menstrual flow, Smoking, Positive family history. With the use of NSAIDs, the prognosis for primary dysmenorrhea is excellent. The prognosis for secondary dysmenorrhea varies, depending on the underlying disease process. If a diagnosis of secondary dysmenorrhea is missed, the underlying pathology may lead to increased morbidity, including difficulty conceiving. Kindly consult gynecologist for further evaluation...
