This does not happen in all women, but the phenomenon is not as rare as it might seem at first glance. From time to time almost every woman is faced with painful menstruation. If you have a low pain threshold of feeling may seem unbearable. Doctors compare such menstruation the level of pain with a heart attack.
Professor John Guillebaud from University College London compares the pain during menstruation with a heart attack. Men can be hard to understand what a woman experiences during menstruation. Women and doctors often find it difficult to realize the degree of pain in their patients.
Researchers are advised medical professionals not to ignore the symptoms of dysmenorrhea in women. While there is a small amount of research devoted to this problem. In some cases painful periods may indicate inflammatory diseases of the reproductive system. One of these is endometriosis, an inflammation of the lining of the uterus. Untreated endometriosis can lead to infertility.
