For the treatment, taking pain medication such as ibuprofen or paracetamol may help to relieve menstrual cramps and pain.
You can also use heating pads. They actually provide a lot of ease from the pain..

What is the major cause of dysmenorrhea??
It is caused by natural chemicals called prostaglandins that are made in the lining of the uterus. Prostaglandins cause the muscles and blood vessels of the uterus to contract.

Yes, heating pads is actually a good treatment for easing the pain if you're not really a good fan of pain relief drugs..

Hello Idella, Is it normal to have dysmenorrhea for every period?
No, this shouldn't happen every period. You could feel occassional sharp pains or discomfort but it shouldn't always be excessive. Do you experience this every period?

How is dysmenorrhea related to endometriosis?
There are two types: primary dysmenorrhea, which isn't tied to any underlying disease; and secondary dysmenorrhea, which is caused by any number of disorders in the reproductive organs, including endometriosis.
