Understanding and Relieving Menstrual Pain Naturally

Abdominal cramp, lower back pain? These pains occur as your menstrual cycle approaches or during it. Pregnancy can also be a cause of abdominal pain, we will see in this article how to differentiate between period pain and pregnancy pain and how to help you relieve this unbearable pain naturally, in particular thanks to electrostimulation.

Symptoms of menstrual and premenstrual pain

Menstruation, or period, is vaginal bleeding that occurs during a woman's monthly cycle. More than 7 in 10 women suffer from painful periods, the most common pain is in the form of abdominal cramps, pain can also be felt in the lower back.

Headaches, diarrhea or nausea may also be observed in some women.

Period pain is not the same as premenstrual syndrome (PMS) . PMS causes many different symptoms:

  • Weight gain,
  • Bloating
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue.

PMS often begins one to two weeks before your period starts, which answers the question many women have, which is, "Why do I have period pain but no period ?"

What causes painful periods?

Before talking about solutions to soothe your menstrual pain, it is interesting to know the causes, 2 types of dysmenorrhea exist: primary and secondary

pain rule what to do

Each type has different causes:

Primary dysmenorrhea is the most common type of menstrual pain. It is a periodic pain that is not caused by another condition. The Cause is usually having too many prostaglandins that your uterus makes in too large quantities.

This results in cramps and colic during the first days of periods. The pain may start a day or two before your period and normally lasts a few days, but in some women it may last longer.

Some women, in addition to these pains, are affected by digestive disorders:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

You usually start having painful periods when you are younger, right after you start having periods. Often, as you get older, you experience less pain.

Secondary dysmenorrhea often begins later in life. It is caused by conditions that affect your uterus or other reproductive organs, such as endometriosis and uterine fibroids. This type of pain often gets worse over time. It may start before your period starts and continue after your period ends.

How to differentiate menstrual pain from early pregnancy?

Should I consider lower abdominal pain after sex as a sign of early pregnancy? This is the question that many women ask themselves.

To help you answer this question, we are going to differentiate 6 premenstrual symptoms from those of early pregnancy. These differences are subtle and can vary from woman to woman.

pregnant woman

  1. Breast pain

Premenstrual: during the second half of your menstrual period, tenderness may be felt in the breasts as well as swelling. Sensitivity is usually most intense just before your period.

You may feel a feeling of fullness with tenderness and intense, dull pain. Pain often improves during your period or just afterward because your progesterone levels decrease.

Pregnancy: Your breasts in early pregnancy may be sore, tender, or tender to the touch. You may also feel them heavier or full.

Swelling as well as tenderness usually occurs 7 to 15 days after conception.

  1. Bleeding

Premenstrual: You usually won't have any bleeding if it's your premenstrual period. When you have your period, the flow can last up to a week.

Pregnancy: For some, one of the first signs of pregnancy is light vaginal bleeding or spots that are usually pink or dark brown. This occurs about 2 weeks after conception and the losses are insufficient to fill a tampon. This period lasts only 2 days maximum, which is therefore much shorter than a normal period.

  1. Mood changes

Premenstrual: You may be irritable and feel a little grumpy. You may also cry more easily and feel anxious. A few days after your period starts, these symptoms disappear.

exercise and sleep can help alleviate mood swings. However, if you feel sad, overwhelmed, hopeless, or low on energy for several weeks, you may be depressed. Talk to your doctor.

Pregnancy: When you are pregnant, mood changes can last until you give birth. You are more likely to be emotional throughout this period. You may be excited, eager to warmly welcome the new member of your family. You may also feel low and cry much more quickly than usual.

These symptoms are similar to the premenstrual period and can be indicators of depression. Depression during pregnancy is common and needs to be treated, talk to your doctor.

  1. Fatigue

Premenstrual: fatigue is common during this period, as are sleep disturbances. These two symptoms are no longer felt at the start of your period . Practicing physical activity will help reduce your fatigue and provide you with restful sleep.

Pregnancy : While you are pregnant, an increase in the hormone progesterone can make you feel tired. During your first trimester, fatigue may be more pronounced, but it may also last throughout your pregnancy. Make sure you eat a healthy and varied diet and sleep properly.

  1. Nausea

Premenstrual: You shouldn't expect to vomit if your menstrual cycle is late, but some digestive discomforts such as nausea may accompany premenstrual symptoms.

Pregnancy : Morning sickness is one of the most classic and clear signs of pregnancy. Nausea often begins a month after pregnancy. Vomiting may or may not accompany nausea. Despite its name, morning sickness also occurs during the day .

  1. Cramps

Premenstrual: If you have premenstrual syndrome, you may suffer from dysmenorrhea which are cramps that occur 24 to 48 hours before your period. The pain will likely lessen during your period and will eventually go away when your bleeding ends.

Painful cramps often lessen after your first pregnancy or as you age. Some women will experience more cramps as they begin to enter menopause.

Pregnancy: You may experience mild cramps like those you get during your period, but they will be in your lower stomach or lower back .

Obviously, the quickest and most effective solution to get the answer to this question is to take a pregnancy test.👶
