Dysmenorrhea, commonly known as painful menstruation, affects a large number of women around the world. These pains, which can vary from mild discomfort to intense suffering, often have a significant impact on quality of life. Fortunately, there are a number of proven methods for alleviating them.

What causes painful periods?

Painful periods are generally caused by uterine contractions. During menstruation, the uterus contracts to help expel its lining. These contractions can cause pain, especially if levels of prostaglandins (compounds involved in pain and inflammation) are high.

How can painful periods be relieved naturally?

  • Heat: Applying a heat source to the lower abdomen can relax uterine muscles and relieve pain. Use a hot water bottle or heating pad for effective results.
  • Physical exercise: Although it may seem counterintuitive, physical activity releases endorphins, the body's natural painkillers. Gentle exercises such as yoga or walking can be beneficial.
  • Hydration and a balanced diet: Drinking plenty of water and maintaining a diet rich in omega-3s, fruits, vegetables and low in saturated fats can help reduce inflammation and pain.
  • Phytotherapy: Certain plants such as chamomile, ginger and raspberry are renowned for their anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties.
  • Stress management: Relaxation techniques such as meditation, yoga or deep breathing can reduce stress levels and, consequently, the intensity of menstrual pain.

Can medication be used to relieve painful periods?

Yes, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen can be effective in reducing inflammation and pain. However, it's important to use them under medical advice, especially if you have special health conditions or are taking other medications.

When should you consult a doctor?

If your painful periods prevent you from carrying out your daily activities, or if the usual methods of relief are not effective, it's important to consult a doctor. He or she can assess the possible presence of underlying conditions such as endometriosis or uterine fibroids.

Which foods are best for easing menstrual pain?

To reduce the intensity of painful periods, certain foods can be particularly beneficial:

  • Omega-3-rich foods: Salmon, flaxseed and walnuts are excellent for fighting inflammation.
  • Fruits and vegetables: These provide essential vitamins and minerals that can help reduce cramps.
  • Foods rich in magnesium: Like spinach, almonds and bananas, they can help relax uterine muscles.
  • Calcium-rich foods: Yogurt, milk and cheese can reduce muscle spasms.

Are herbal teas effective against painful periods?

Yes, some herbal teas can offer relief thanks to their antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties. The most recommended are :

  • Chamomile: soothes and relaxes muscles.
  • Ginger: Reduces inflammation and pain.
  • Peppermint: Reduces muscle spasms.
  • Raspberry: tones the uterus and can ease cramps.

It is advisable to drink these herbal teas hot to benefit from the soothing effect of the heat.

Can acupuncture help relieve painful periods?

Yes,acupuncture is a recognized method for reducing menstrual pain. It aims to restore the body's energetic balance and can significantly reduce the intensity of pain by stimulating certain points on the body. Studies suggest that acupuncture may be effective in relieving pain and improving quality of life.

How does the menstrual cycle affect pain levels?

Pain levels can vary significantly during the menstrual cycle due to hormonal fluctuations. Just before and during menstruation, the body produces more prostaglandins, which can lead to more intense pain. Understanding your cycle can help you anticipate and manage these pains more effectively.

Is it normal for menstrual pain to change with age?

Yes, it's common for the intensity and nature of painful periods to change with age. In adolescence, pain may be more intense due to irregular cycles and the maturation of the reproductive system. After having children or approaching menopause, some women notice a reduction in their symptoms. However, any significant change or sudden onset of severe pain should be evaluated by a healthcare professional.
