pain during menstruation
There are two types of dysmennorhea, primary and secondary.Primary dysmennorhea is the pain and cramping associated with the monthly menstruation, with no other clinical cause. Secondary is caused by an underlying medical condition and usually responds to medical treatment. Primary is believed to be caused by excess production of prostaglandin. The main symptom is pain but may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and general soreness and malaise.
