Natural Remedies For Menstrual Cramps Or Pain by Lawrittanneka68(f): 5:54pm On Nov 21, 2017

Painful menstruation is known as Dysmenorrhoea which literally means “difficult menstruation”. A lady having this symptomatic pain is said to be having menstrual cramp. Each month when the uterine lining sheds as menstruation, the uterus must contract. In women with dysmenorrhoea the contractions are very painful.


 Lower abdomen, vulva, lower back and down the thighs.
 This wave like pain is often accompanied by headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhoea. The pain can begin up to 24 hours before menses begins and usually lasts for the first 48 hours once menses begins. In some women the pain may last up to 72 hours once menses begins.


Primary means that it is the first issue, whereas secondary means there is another health issue that is causing or contributing to the painful menstruation. For example; Secondary Dysmenorrhoea is often caused by endometriosis, ovarian cysts, or uterine fibroids. There may also be other factors that are causing pain that may also need to be ruled out, such as IBS, constipation, UTI.

If you know that you have other fertility issues that are the underlying cause of your menstrual pain, it is important to address those issues as well. While it is always easier to treat pain acutely (when it is happening) rather than address the root cause, it is very important to find out what is causing the pain in your body.


Scientists discovered that women with menstrual cramps had high levels of prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2). Prostaglandin F2 alpha is made by the uterus to stop progesterone production when there has been no implantation at the end of the menstrual cycle. Women with Dysmenorrhoea have been shown to produce 7 times more prostaglandin F2 alpha than women who do not. When the prostaglandin F2 alpha is released into the blood stream in high levels it causes the uterus to spasm. This also creates a state of inflammation because PGF2 is a known inflammatory chemical in the body. Uterine cramping and inflammation is the cause of the pain. So, how do you take care of this condition?


Avoid refined carbohydrates. Stick to whole grains like oats, millet, brown rice, quinoa, ect. Eat only 3 servings of grains at most a day.Eliminate sugary foods and processed sugar. Choose very limited amounts of honey or agave.

Dairy products are congesting to the body and many doctors have seen a reduction in menstrual cramp pain in women who eliminated dairy products. If you choose dairy, try to purchase organic or organic raw dairy only to avoid added hormones.

Reduce red meat and egg yolk consumption to at most 2-3 times a week. This is because both red meat and egg yolk are high in arachidonic acid (AA). This has been found to increase cellular inflammation in some people.
