Pain With Menstruation

Pain associated with menstruation is usually mild. But some people do experience more-intense pain. Make an appointment to see a Carbon Health if you are experiencing unusually severe pain with a period or have symptoms that seriously disrupt daily life.
Severe pain during menstruation can be caused by several factors, including medical conditions and hormonal imbalances. The most common cause of severe menstrual pain is a condition called primary dysmenorrhea, which is caused by an increase in prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that are released during menstruation, that cause the uterus to contract and may cause pain and discomfort.
