Everytime i have my monthly period i really sacrifice from dysmenorrhea, it's painful that's cramping inside my abdomen, but i dont take medicine just a warm water, i put it inside the bottle wrap with cloth and put on the abdomen, it's lessen the pain.. Do you have dysmenorrhea every monthly period? What did you do to lessen the pain?

I had to look up the word before I replied LOL. I do get a few stomach cramps but not as bad as you have described. I only get the odd back pain and bloating when I get my period. I also get very cranky if you can call that a sympton LOL

It's so painful to have dysmenorrhea, so what I do is I will take up ibuprofen to lessen the pain. I become unproductive and I can't do my routine work here at home because of this pain.

I know how painful and agonizing it is. For me dysmenorrhea appears within two weeks before my period and I simply call it PMS. I'd have diarrhea and stomach cramp while sitting on the toilet and my feet get cold, my ears get warm, I feel cold and but perspiring. It only last for 5-30 minutes but it seems endless ages when it happens. I've known some cure for it like half-glass of warm water with one spoonful of sugar, eating regularly, or taking Centrum at least 2 weeks after my period.

First off my profile says male as I am a transsexual. So I am Physically a Female but indentify myself as a male.. However, I do get horrible Horrible cramps, like to describe there... From age 9 on up every time it hits the pain is so bad I can not function at all for 2-3 days I can not even eat. I need to constantly have water near by as I over heat.. Its not fun... The only thing that works it heating pad, and alieve.. and sleeping for at least 10-12 hrs.. then if I am lucky I can get up and function for 5-6.. but if I am moving around to much back to bed I go... Other times if I doing alot of hard physical work... I'll be fine, and can function fine. But its hard to tell if that will help or not. - DNatureofDTrain Dysmenorrhea http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dysmenorrhea
