Suffering from Dysmenorrhea

I was suffering from dysmenorrhea last night. You know the "Menstrual Discomfort" thing. I took pain reliever and it takes 2 to 3 hours before the pain is gone.. Huhuhu.. I have learned today that there are lots of factors that trigger dysmenorrhea. Lack of regular physical exercise and stressed body increase menstrual pain. Those women who smoke are more likely prone to menstrual pain. Overweight women are more persistent to menstrual pain and lastly, alcohol intake prolongs the duration of pain in women.

But the primary cause of dysmenorrhea is because during menstruation our uterus contract. The uterus is an ogan located in the female pelvis between the bladder and rectum. During menses, the contractions are stronger and are stimulated by pain triggering hormones called prostaglandins. The duration level of prostaglandin is related to the duration of pain. ;)
