Reasons for the pain in your period

Every month I'm annoyed. Namely from my period. Not only that, the monthly bleeding is simply uncomfortable (change tampons and bandages, spend money ect.) – It is also physically totally at the end. Which of you also has convulsions? During the 3-7 days of your period, you manage to get out of bed (because you have to), but what if in the office you suddenly incessantly struggle to stop bloating and massive cramping? We'll explain why you have pain during your period and what you can do about it. cramps
Most women, at least now and then, have abdominal spasms during their period. Convulsions often occur shortly before or at the beginning of the bleeding and then accompany us for the next 1 to 3 days. The tissue hormones (or labor hormones) prostaglandins cause the muscles in the uterus to contract to repel the uterine lining – causing cramping.
What can you do? It is best to take a warm bath or a hot water bottle to relieve cramps. Also sports (jogging or climbing stairs) AND orgasms (YEAH) help against the pain! endometriosis
Nearly every 10th woman knows that: Shortly before the period comes she gets a strong stomach ache and can hardly leave the bed. In endometriosis, the lining of the uterus grows into the abdomen and can form cysts there that even attack the bladder and bowel. The worst consequence of the disease is infertility.
What can you do? Never think that severe abdominal pain is normal. Be sure to go to your gynecologist and get examined! fibroids
In about 20 to 30 percent of all women over 30 years fibroids occur in the uterine muscles. Most often affected are women between 35 and 45 years. Fibroids are benign tumors, which may be the reason for severe menstrual pain or an unfulfilled desire for children.
What can you do? You should definitely find out from the doctor by pressing and ultrasound if it is fibroids or not. If you have no symptoms, the fibroids are not treated – but observed. However, suffering from the above symptoms is usually treated with hormones that contain estrogen. The hormone is injected and the ovaries are put out of action. The result: The fibroids shrink and can be surgically removed. Find out more here: Myoma in the uterus ovarian and tubal inflammation
Common pains and pressure in the abdomen are signs of ovarian inflammation or inflammation (pelvic inflammatory disease). Often, the inflammation is triggered by bacteria, which is caused by sex or poor hygiene. It is a serious disease because it can lead to infertility if you do not treat it.
What can you do? Caution is better than forbearance: You should always pay attention to the correct hygiene for your genital area and keep the vaginal flora in balance. During sex, you can protect yourself from infection by using condoms. If an ovarian or ovarian inflammation is already present, it will be treated with a special antibiotic. adenomyosis
About one in four women suffers from it: adenomyosis is a form of endometriosis (see point 2). Here, foci grow in the wall of the uterus, which is why the disease is also called "internal endometriosis". The signs are unusually painful menstrual bleeding, which already occur during puberty. Later, often come in addition to heavy bleeding and bleeding.
What can you do?
Most of the time the disease is treated with hormones – but if the foci are already spread so far that they are infertile, they are surgically removed. contraceptive
A common side effect of the spiral (intrauterine device, IUD) may be increased secondary period pain such as cramping and heavy bleeding.
What can you do? If you do not tolerate the spiral, you should talk to your gynecologist about alternative contraceptives. Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome (OHSS)
The term ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) refers to a disease that can occur in rare cases in the Ovulationsinduktion (breeding of ova) in the context of artificial insemination. The more follicles mature, the bigger the ovaries become. Hormonal stimulation can in rare cases lead to so-called ovarian hyper stimulation syndrome (OHSS). First symptoms include abdominal pain, increase in size, nausea and stool irregularities. Serious cases require inpatient care, but fortunately are very rare.
