Types And Causes Of Dysmenorrhoea

Dysmenorrhea is of two types i.e. primary and secondary.

1. Primary dysmenorrhea: In this type, pain does not arise from any medical condition. It is caused from excessive prostaglandins (chemicals released from uterus that cause contraction and relaxation of muscles of uterus leading to cramps). This pain affects females who are younger, soon after they start having periods. This type of pain tends to decrease as the age of female increases.

2. Secondary dysmenorrhoea: It arises secondary to some medical condition affecting uterus. This type begins later in life. Some of the medical conditions that could lead to this type of dysmenorrhea are as follows:

a) Uterine fibroids (leiomyomas): Non-cancerous (benign) growths in the uterus that may grow in wall of uterus, inside uterine cavity or outside the wall of uterus

b) Endometriosis: A medical condition in which the cells that line the uterus start to grow at places other than uterus, like in fallopian tubes, ovaries, rectum, urinary bladder.

c) Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID): It refers to an infection in reproductive organs of females. It may occur in uterus, cervix, ovaries, and fallopian tubes. It is mainly caused by sexually transmitted bacterial infection.

d) Adenomyosis: A condition in which the tissue that lines uterus begins to grow in muscle layer of uterus

e) Cervical stenosis: Narrowing of the opening of cervix that hinders menstrual blood flow that increases pressure in the uterus leading to pain

1. Females less than 20yrs age
