Dysmenorrhea: 4 natural home remedies to relieve menstrual cramps or period pain – Times Now

New Delhi: Dysmenorrhea is basically pain associated with menstrual periods such as cramps. During periods, the muscles of your uterus contract and relax to shed the built-up lining. This is a natural process, but for some, it leads to discomfort. The pain might occur in the abdominal area, legs or back. Some women might also experience symptoms such as nausea, headache or vomiting.
Menstrual cramps can be more severe when a woman has uterine fibroids, polyps or endometriosis. During the period, the body releases prostaglandins, a hormone that influences your womb and increases the perception of pain as well as trigger muscles in your uterus to contract. These contractions help expel the lining. But there are some home remedies that can help provide relief from menstrual cramps.
