For many women, periods can be a painful and uncomfortable time. One of the most common symptoms of menstruation is stomach pain or cramps. These cramps are caused by the contractions of the uterus as it sheds its lining, and they can range from mild discomfort to severe pain. Many people get cramps both before and during their menstruation. Some people simply have minor cramps, but others aren’t nearly that fortunate.
Period cramps can occasionally cause excruciating agony that seriously interferes with your daily life. There are ways you can regain control if period pain cramps your style every month. This article will examine the reasons why stomach pain occurs during periods as well as some possible cures.
Causes of Stomach Pain during periods
During menstruation, the lining of the uterus produces a hormone called prostaglandins. This hormone causes the uterus to contract, which can lead to stomach pain and cramps.
Endometriosis is a condition where the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of it. This can cause painful periods and stomach pain.
Adenomyosis is a condition where the tissue that lines the uterus grows into the wall of the uterus. This can cause heavy periods, painful periods, and stomach pain.
Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths in the uterus. They can cause heavy periods, painful periods, and stomach pain.
Pelvic inflammatory disease
Pelvic inflammatory disease is an infection of the reproductive organs. It can cause pain during periods, as well as pain during sex, fever, and abnormal vaginal discharge.
Get an alert if it’s a medical condition
It’s important to note that while bad period pain can indicate a medical condition, it is not always the case. Some people may experience more severe period pain than others, and it does not necessarily mean that there is an underlying medical condition. However, if you experience severe period pain that disrupts your daily activities, or if your period pain suddenly becomes worse than usual, it is always a good idea to speak with your healthcare provider.
In addition to the medical conditions mentioned above, other conditions that can cause severe period pain include pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ovarian cysts, and uterine prolapse. PID is an infection of the reproductive organs that can cause pelvic pain and discomfort. Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can develop on the ovaries and cause pain during menstruation. Uterine prolapse occurs when the uterus slips down into the vagina, causing discomfort and pain.
Home remedies for Stomach Pain during periods
If you are looking for natural ways to relieve menstrual cramps and period pain, there are several safe and effective solutions available.
Yoga and exercising
Engaging in regular yoga practice can be beneficial in reducing menstrual cramps and discomfort, possibly due to the relaxation or stretching of muscles. A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine in September 2016 found that undergraduate students who participated in a three-month, hour-long yoga program once a week experienced less menstrual cramping and distress compared to those who did not. In addition, a review of heating pads published in the Journal of Physiotherapy found that yoga has benefits for menstrual pain management.
Applying a heating pad or hot water bottle to the lower abdomen can help to ease menstrual cramps and relax muscles. Heat is believed to be effective in reducing cramps and discomfort by relaxing the muscles surrounding the uterus. In addition, placing a heating pad on the lower back can help alleviate back pain.
A warm bath is another option for relieving tension and discomfort in the abdomen, legs, and back. Although electric heating pads and hot water bottles may not be as convenient as patches, they are still a good option if you are able to stay home and do not need to move around much. By utilizing these natural remedies, you may be able to effectively manage menstrual pain without the need for medication.
Healthy diet and herbs
A healthy diet and the use of herbs have been shown to be effective in reducing the severity of PMS symptoms. Studies suggest that a diet rich in calcium, vitamin D, and omega-3 fatty acids and low in animal fats, sodium, and caffeine can help reduce troublesome symptoms associated with PMS. For example, salt can cause fluid retention, bloating, and breast pain, while caffeine can lead to irritability, sleep disturbances, and menstrual cramps.
To achieve a healthy diet, it is recommended to consume five servings of vegetables, two servings of fruit, and three servings of fish per week. Various sources of omega-3 fatty acids like flax or chia seeds are also included. Additionally, a range of whole grains such as brown rice, oats, and pasta, as well as low-fat dairy products, proteins including beans and eggs, and legumes are recommended.
