Dysmenorrhea is a common experience of a couple of days for every woman who menstruates. Sometimes the pain may cause headache and discomfort, but it's usually caused by menstrual cramps.

What causes menstrual pain?

It’s a natural question to wonder why you experience chronic painful periods. It may happen you are the only one in the family to experience severe pains and cramps. Your doctor can properly guide you through this journey of monthly painful cramps. Some common causes of pain are,

      Premenstrual Syndrome

      Premenstrual dysphoric disorder


      Ovarian cysts

      Pelvic inflammatory disease



Facing your cramps may seem frustrating at times. Some remedies might help you cross the journey easily.

Drink more water

Drinking more water can reduce the pain caused by bloating during the periods and increase blood flow making your muscles relaxed which will lessen the cramps caused by uterine contractions.


You can go with over-the-counter medicines once you start to feel the cramps. Medicines like ibuprofen can reduce the number of prostaglandins in your body which causes muscle contraction and pain. You can, at times, go with other pain killer medicines. There are few pain relief tablets in India like naproxen sodium, ketoprofen, etc.

Reach for decaf

Caffeinated drinks will constrict the uterus, making your cramps more painful. If you have a daily habit of coffee, switch it to decaffeinated drinks for a while and instead have some high protein snacks, or a 10-minute walk will surely help you boost your energy.

Reduce stress

Relax as much as possible because stressing will add to your cramps. Try meditation, yoga, or do things that make you happy. You can also try an imaginary guide by closing your eyes, taking a deep breath, and imagining a calm, safe place significant to you. Focus on this space for a few minutes.

Try massage therapy

A study proved that in women with endometriosis, massage therapy significantly reduces menstrual pain. Massage may help to relax the uterus by reducing spasms.

Apply heat

A little touch of heat will relieve tension, improve blood flow helping your muscle relax. You can use water bags. There are hot water bags online at Healthskool Pharmacy, giving you doorstep service.

Above mentioned remedies will ease your pain, but if you still face severe thorns, do consult a doctor for a better piece of advice before taking a wrong step.
