What Should You Do In Case Of Painful Menses?

What Should You Do In Case Of Painful Menses?

In preparation for the possibility of conception, a woman's body undergoes the menstrual cycle every month which culminates into the periods. This is a normal process which all women of reproductive age go through every month. However, in certain cases, the periods can be really painful where you may suffer from menstrual cramps or could be generally in much pain. This condition is known as Dysmenorrhea.

What exactly is Dysmenorrhea
As mentioned above, Dysmenorrhea is a disorder that many women got through while having their periods where they may suffer from painful cramps. The pain usually occurs in the pelvis area along with the lower abdomen and it may also be accompanied by other symptoms.

Some symptoms of Dysmenorrhea
Some of the symptoms of Dysmenorrhea could be any combination of the following factors
I. Very painful menstrual cramps accompanied by lower back pain
II. Diarrhea and nausea along with the cramps
III. Pain in the inner thighs, lower back and hips
IV. Being hypersensitive to light, loud sounds, specific smells and touch
V. Being fatigued all the time, even causing you to faint

Causes of Dysmenorrhea
Dysmenorrhea is usually caused by the contraction of the Uterus. While the uterus does contract a little even in normal periods, during Dysmenorrhea the contractions tend to be a little too much. Due to this the uterus presses against the blood vessels and organs within the vicinity causing oxygen loss to them. This causes elevated levels of pain and discomfort.

Some of the underlying causes which may result in Dysmenorrhea are:
1. Narrowing of the cervix - Also known as stenosis, the lower part of the uterus which is the cervix may become narrow due to scarring and cause Dysmenorrhea.
2. Endometriosis - This is where the uterine lining is found outside the uterus, especially in the pelvic cavity and thus may cause painful cramps.
3. Inflammatory pelvic diseases - This is when a bacterial infection in the pelvic area can spread to multiple organs, including the uterus and thus may cause painful menstrual cramps.
4. Tumors - Tumors or fibroids which are unwanted growths on the inside of the uterus may also trigger Dysmenorrhea.

What to do if you are suffering from Dysmenorrhea
Below are some of the basic steps which you can take to ease pain from Dysmenorrhea
1. Avoid smoking and abstain from alcohol
2. Ample rest during periods
3. Keep the body dehydrated
4. Don't consume foods high in salt
5. Don't drink coffee or any caffeine rich foods
6. Lower back massages and hot water bag treatments to relieve pain
If severe pain still persists for long or if dysmenorrhea occurs repeatedly, then you should consult a doctor first rather than trying to resolve the problem yourself. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I'm a 22 year old female. For the last five years, I've not been able to be successful in anything. I think I'm just lazy. But i've had suicidal tendencies and have absolutely no interest in anything anymore. I also had an incident of sexual abuse in my childhood. What do I do? Am I depressed or just plain lazy?

Five years ago you would have been 16 years when the last stage of adolescence beckoned and you would have needed to resolve any childhood issues (like this sexual abuse you talk of among others), once and for all. It appears that you have lived with that and therefore there could be important things to be taken care of soon. This could all lead to depression (anger-related) and for some reason, you have turned the anger inwards and that is propositioning the suicidal tendencies. You must, therefore, meet with a counselor soon and if that person recommends a doctor you must comply with the medication too. It is also advisable to take your parents to meet with the counselor to help identify the childhood issues and also to know about the sex abuse. You have been a victim and need not blame yourself in all this. But it is important to face all the repercussions of sharing your experiences to a professional and in front of your parents. You will find it a great relief and will immediately feel better for it.

Hello Psychosis can occur in a wide range of conditions. First of all the concept of CURE is over rated. If you have ever had common cold, or a fever, and taken medicine for it, you are able to over come the episode and get better. But your are NOT CURED. Cure means to never have the same Problem again. You may even have the common cold again. Like wise psychosis can be treated. Cure is a wrong word. Certain causes of psychosis can be treated very easily (medical causes) while others take a little while. Ideally medication and therapy should be combined together for best result. Good luck.

Dear user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

I always feel a kind of fear inside me. Fear of talking to the people, fear of lose, etc. It makes me introvert also and hence depression is very common for me. My body is not relaxed at any time. I always feels a kind of tensile force inside me. May be because of it I still feel like a class 10 boy though my age is 24. Please consult me.

Hello lybrate-user Here I am suggesting you some natural tips go for it and side by side consult any Psychiatrist and Psychologist 1. Anxiety, in my experience, wasn’t a disease. It was a feeling that I had never been equipped to manage. That’s exactly what I tell people these days when asked about my anxiety. I never “cured” it, I’ve learned how to “manage” it. There wasn’t anything actually wrong with me, at least not in the “I have cancer and I’m slowly fading with each day that passes” kind of sense. I was just experiencing elevated levels of anxiety for the first time and I had no idea how to manage. For most of my life, I had been living in a reactive state. If something felt off, I went to the doctor and blasted it away with the best that modern medicine had to offer. It was time to get proactive. Looking at my lifestyle, I could see why I felt like an anxious, nervous wreck. The daily activities of my life had been filling up my anxiety bucket, and I had been doing nothing to drain it. That’s how I view managing my anxiety these days - like a bucket. If I go for a few days eating like shit and neglecting to exercise, I literally feel my bucket overflowing with anxiety. When I spend a few days practicing healthy behaviors, I return to a balanced state. My bucket becomes half full, so-to-speak. Right where it belongs. 2. Stop fighting the feeling. When you get angry or sad, what do you do? Do you try to fight the feeling with all your might, or do you recognize them for what they are - feelings - and allow them to slowly fade? The problem with anxiety is that it’s a feeling no one enjoys experiencing. The nervousness. The on-edge-ness. The worry. The fear. The impending doom. I don’t blame you for not wanting to feel like that. But that doesn’t mean you should fight it. It took me a painfully long time to learn this. Anxiety, isolated from other issues, isn’t anything to worry about. It’s actually a good thing we have it. It spikes our adrenaline when we need it most - running from bears, hunting for food, and other things of the sorts. In today’s world, we don’t have much of a need for those feelings. Outside of fighting and war, the majority of people could do without them. So when we experience them, we struggle. We fight back. We resist. It’s the resistance of anxiety that makes it stronger. It allows your anxiety to grow. It adds to your bucket. But if you let go, you allow yourself to be free. Feel the feeling of anxiety. Recognize it’s just a feeling. And move on. “Oh, I’m feeling anxious. I don’t like it, but it’s not going to hurt me.” This is what I practiced doing for several months, even after making all the lifestyle changes I talked about earlier. Eventually, I got to a point where a month had gone by and I hadn’t felt overly anxious. No more panic attacks. No more night terrors. No more feeling like crap. I remember saying to myself, “Hm, that’s weird. I can’t believe I haven’t felt like that in a while.” Then I continued on with my life. I rose from the pit of doom and conquered my fears. Today, I happily and healthily “manage” my anxiety, but I sure as hell haven’t “cured” it. Conquering anxiety is simpler than it seems. Yes, I really just said that, how do I know? Becuase it is a waiting game that works in direct correlation with results. The more action you take, the better results you get. What do you feel on anxiety? Faster heart beat Quicker Breaths Weak muscle Oversweating Stomach churning You feel Dizzy You feel like you are frozen on the spot Here are simple tricks to calm down and refocus yourself during the next time you have anxiety. READ ME: 5 Ways to Reduce Anxiety Right Here, Right Now – Science Lavender Oil. ORGANIC Lavender oil has been proven HIGHLY EFFECTIVE by leading researchers as a natural remedy for treating anxiety. The benefits of lavender oil" Reduce anxiety and stress: rub 2 drops onto the neck and wrists. Reduces cortisol levels Using aromatherapy, the scent of organic lavender essential oil helps transmit messages to the limbic system. This means your emotions get regulated. It overall helps alleviate anxiety by calming effects on the central nervous system. Other benefits of lavender oil: Heal burns, scars and cuts: apply 2 drops directly on affected area. Relieve headaches: apply 2 drops on temples and gently massage. Natural perfume: apply a few drops onto your wrist, neck or shirt collar. KNOW YOURSELF The main method to remove anxiety from your life is about knowing yourself. You must begin to learn more about this fear, start noticing what causes your anxiety to hit you. I would recommend a diary or a thought book. When it happens analyze how you feel. What increases your heart rate? What triggers it? Who does it happen in front of? You can carry a list of questions to ask yourself to help dissect the true reason. This is effective beside you find the foundation reason behind your anxiety. The Methods To Start Today: Relax: Start practicing relaxation techniques. Simple breathing exercises put you in the moment. Anxiety comes from overthinking the future, the things that haven't even happened yet. Relaxation through yoga and mediation allows you to live in the moment. Breathe deeply, clear your thoughts and live in the moment. Exercise: Get your mind off your overthinking, exercising require concentration, this allows you to forget about the fear and anxiety. Faith/spirituality This can be your little gateway to feeling connected to something bigger than yourself. It provides a way of coping with your everyday stress.
