“My 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”.

      These 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 dysmenorrhoea.

Primary dysmenorrhoea

      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.

Secondary dysmenorrhoea

      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 are:

       Adenomyosis - uterine tissue growing into the uterine wall.

       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.
