Treatment for painful periods

What are painful periods?

Having painful periods is also called dysmenorrhea. Many women suffer from severely painful menstrual cramps frequently for years. The common symptoms are severe abdominal pain and bloating during menstruation, combined with severe menstrual cramps. The severity of pain with menstruation can be so great that one has to rest in bed and take prescribed pain medication.

Women who suffer from severe menstrual pain should be screened for endometriosis. Pelvic physical therapy is an important treatment for painful periods and is most often used alongside other treatments provided by medical disciplines.
