Cramping and bloating are normal during menstrual cycles.

Extreme pain before or during your period can be a sign of a more serious underlying health issue though.

Dysmenorrhea is the most common gynecological problem occurring between 16% and 91% in women of reproductive age, with severe pain in 2%-29% of them.

Dysmenorrhea or Menstrual cramps is the term used to describe painful periods. Conditions such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) can cause menstrual cramps.

For some women, the discomfort is mild and merely annoying. For others, menstrual cramps can be severe enough to interfere with everyday activities and can be a sign of a more serious health condition that needs medical attention.

Dysmenorrhea is the most common gynecological disorder in women, occurring between 16% and 91% in women of reproductive age, with severe pain in 2%-29% of them.

Depending on the cause, dysmenorrhea is divided into two types: primary and secondary.

Primary dysmenorrhea is the crampy pain in the lower abdomen before or during the menstrual period. Primary dysmenorrhea is not a symptom of any underlying gynecologic disorder.

Secondary dysmenorrhea originates from disorders in the reproductive system. Pain levels gradually increase during menstruation and may not go away even after the period has passed. This is pain can be associated with the underlying gynecological disorders like:

  1. Endometriosis
  2. Adenomyosis
  3. Pelvic inflammatory disease
  4. Ovarian cysts
  5. Fibroids of the uterus

Ayurvedic treatment options include management with ayurvedic medications and in some cases the treatment may include detox therapies like panchakarma.

The treatment regimen for gynecological disorders consists of a combination of internal medications and in few cases medications for external application. In addition, doctors would advise on simple diet and lifestyle modifications.

Yes, you can. Ayurvedic medications do not interfere with Allopathic medications. However, the doctor will go through the list of medication you are taking before giving his final opinion.

Ayurveda medications are usually a very safe and effective option for treating dysmenorrhea.

This is very rare though.  In case you notice any such issue you can always talk to your consulting doctor or our medical team.

Consultations at UWAY can last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. We require most of the medical records related to the current problem, the medicines you are on currently and for pre-existing conditions for diabetes, hypertension, thyroid, cardiac issues etc.
