Pain During Menstruation

MD - Alternate Medicine, DNHE, BHMS
Homeopath, Ahmedabad
Pain During Menstruation

Painful menstruation or menstrual cramp is termed as Dysmenorrhoea and refers to the discomfort or pain associated with menstruation. In 80% cases, cramps are an integral part of the preliminary dysmenorrhoea syndrome. Though this symptom is not deemed as a very serious clinical problem, the pain and its associated symptoms are acute enough to keep an affected woman from normal functioning for the first one or two days. These symptoms may take over one or two days prior to menses, reach their pinnacle on the first day and subside slowly with the passage of time. The pain can be typically depicted as being ached, cramping of the stomach and often reaching to the lower back portion.

There is probably no woman across the world, who has not undergone the painful menstrual cramps. But don't fret! Homeopathy treatment has a range of remedies to relieve you off this unease.

  1. Cimicifuga: Normally menstruation cramps indicate a pain that flows across the pelvic region from one side to the other. This remedy will particularly be helpful in neuralgic and rheumatic cases as well as congestive cases where it works effectively with Veratrum Viride and Belladonna. It is also very efficient in combating headaches preceding menses, acute pains across abdomen, labor like pains and scanty flow.
  2. Caulophyllum: This remedy is great for treating spasms and pain that flow downwards. The spasmodic periodic pains that need to be treated with Caulophyllum are mostly concentrated around the groin and radiate to other surrounding parts. Gelsemium can also be taken for treating neuralgic as well as congestive dysmenorrhoea when the pain bears down. The pains are often labor-like and spasmodic with flow of pale urine. In order to get faster relief, it can be taken along with hot bag press.
  3. Belladonna: If you are afflicted with the congestive forms of menstrual cramps, then you may take Belladonna. In most cases, a pain and discomfort is felt prior to the flow and a feeling of something heavy around the vulva can be relieved if you sit up straight. This pain occurs and subsides all of a sudden making the flow clotted and restricted. This kind of dysmenorrhoea is extremely painful and makes the genital dry. In case the pain gets severe and cuts through the pelvis, then Veratrum viride can also be administered.
  4. Zanthoxylum: This remedy is very effective in fighting dysmenorrhoea and uterine spasms. It is very effective when the pain is burning, agonising and extending down through the thighs making the limbs paralysed and numb. You can take this measure when the pain is affecting your ovaries as this medicine works closely for neuralgic form of menstrual cramps. Women with delicate nervous temperament can also take this remedy as it relieves from headache and eye pain caused from Menstruation.

Homeopathy has a huge range of medicines and it becomes difficult for a commoner to select an ideal one. Therefore, when you are deeply affected with menstrual cramps, you can always consult an expert before administering any medicine.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
If you are pregnant and do not want the pregnancy, you may seek an abortion which can be done by gynecologist in a registered center. The medicines to cause abortion are not sold at medical stores. You have to approach the gynecologist to get them. There are two methods of abortion: medical method. In this method, a sonograohy is done to detect pregnancy, and medicines given to the lady, over 2 days. After this the lady experiences pain and bleeding from vagina which is heavier than the menses. This is due to the abortion process. Generally the bleeding lasts few days but it may last upto 15 days in some. 15 days after the pill intake, a repeat sonography is done to observe completion of abortion. If the abortion is done, the uterus will be empty. If the sonography shows retained products of pregnancy is not aborted, then patient will be counseled to go for surgical abortion. Surgical: here the gynecologist will cal you for a abortion after prior consultation and counseling. Patient is given anesthesia and the contents of the uterus are evacuated using special instruments. Usually the patient spends half a day in the hospital to do this abortion. Though only 10 minutes are usually required to do the abortion, the patient takes 4 hours to come out of anesthesia. The gynec is the best person who will guide you about which procedure is best for you.

Hello, the first ultrasound done during a normal pregnancy is usually between 16 - 20 weeks. This is done to check for the baby's growth and development. An ultrasound earlier tha this will be needed only if there is a complication in the pregnancy.

Safety of Emergency Contraception

Certification in Robotic surgery in Gynecology, MRCOG (LONDON), Fellowship in Gyn Endoscopy, MD - Gynaecologist & Obstetrician, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Safety of Emergency Contraception

Emergency is helpful in preventing pregnancies post unprotected sexual activity. It can be used in case of contraceptive failure, in case of sexual assault, incorrect use of contraceptives and unprotected sex.

Emergency contraception can be done by three methods. These are emergency contraceptive pills, combined oral contraceptive pills and copper intrauterine devices.

The copper IUD is considered to be one of the most effective forms of emergency contraception, when it is inserted within 5 days of unprotected sexual activity.

However, the emergency contraceptive pill regimen as per WHO is:

  • 1 dose of levonorgestrel 1.5 mg, or 1 dose of ulipristal 30 mg, taken within 5 days (120 hours) of unprotected intercourse

  • The Yuzpe regimen which consists of 2 doses of combined oral contraceptive pills

What is Emergency Contraception?

Emergency contraception is usually referred to as the contraception which is used to prevent a pregnancy within the first 5 days after an unprotected sexual activity. It is used post failures of contraception, coerced unprotected sex, rape or misuse of contraception.

Emergency contraception is only effective in the first few days after an intercourse and before the egg has released from the ovary, and before there is fertilization between the egg and the sperm. The emergency contraception can do no harm to an interrupted pregnancy and a developing embryo.

Who needs emergency contraception?

Any girl or woman who is at her reproductive age might need an emergency contraception in case of an unprotected sexual intercourse.

Uses:

  1. Breakage, slippage or displacement of barrier methods
  2. Three or more missed OCPills for more than 12 hours
  3. Missed Mini pill for more than 3 hours
  4. Missed Desoestrel pills for more than 12 hours
  5. DMPA injections taken more than 2 weeks late
  6. Miscalculated dates of last period and present ovulation side effects

These are meant only for emergency contraception and NOT AS A REGULAR CONTRACEPTIVE. It involves pumping of a hormone inside your body at levels which are 5 times higher than normal. hence excessive and unnecessary use may cause irregularity in the period cycles and an adverse effect on the menstrual health over a period of time. Ideally it should be taken under guided medical supervision.

In what situations should emergency contraception be used?

Emergency contraception can be used after a sexual intercourse. These include:

  • In case of no use of contraceptives

  • If it is a case of rape or coerced sex, where the woman was not protected

  • When there is a contraceptive failure, like

    • breakage

    • incorrect use or slippage

    • OCPILLS,

    • mini pills

    • DMPA

  • 3 or more missed combined oral contraceptives, progestogen-only pill (minipill) taken more than 3 hours late, desogestrel-containing pill 12 hours or more, norethisterone enanthate (NET-EN) progestogen-only injection taken more than 2 weeks late

  • Delay in placing or dislodgement or early removal of the skin patch or the hormonal ring

  • Breaking, dislodgement, tearing or early removal of cervical cap or diaphragm

  • Failure of withdrawal that is ejaculation the external genitalia or vagina

  • The spermicide tablet failure

  • Miscalculating the periods, failure from using a barrier on the fertile days

  • Expulsion of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD)

Methods of Emergency Contraception:

There are three emergency contraception methods:

  1. Copper-bearing intrauterine devices (IUDs)

  2. Emergency contraception pills (ECPs)

  3. Combined oral contraceptive pills or the Yuzpe method

Commonest cause of heavy bleeding when on pills is to take it erratically and stop it suddenly. If thats the case she needs to reduce the flow by taking a non hormonal tablet like pause MF and then re start pills from first, second or fifth day of periods depending on the pill she is taking
