Dysmenorrhea
« on: March 20, 2009, 01:01:46 PM »
How often do you experience menstrual cramps before/during/after period?
Also, I just want ask what do you do when you have dysmenorrhea?
I feel I'm abnormal to experience this every 1st day of my menstruation, I have a regular cycle so meaning I encounter this pain every month (since high school). :(
I wonder if I have fellow GT sisses who feel the same...
Sabi nila mawawala daw pag nag-asawa na is that true?

Thanks for your comments.

hi sis! yup, since highschool hanggang mag-college ako meron ako nito..
pero nung pa-graduate na ako 'til now, hindi na..or at least paminsan na lang...

nun hs kasi ako, ayoko uminom ng gamot, kasi raw masama..
pero ngayon, since working ako..hindi naman pwede na magpapasama ako sa mga co-workers ko sa clinic dahil hindi na ako makalakad diba?  ;D kaya kapag medyo sumasakit na, nagttake na ako ng dolfenal, sometimes midoL naman...

normal lang yan sa girls sis, pero not sure kung kapag nag-asawa na mawawala..single pa kasi ako eh  ;D

I have dysmen0rrhea to0 every time I have my period.. Usually from 1st-3rd day.. Seldom lang na meron ako na I dont experience it.. But I noticed na whenever nag eExercise ako,nawawala siya or nalelessen.. Pag stagnant lang ako,dun talaga sumasakit.. Parang cramps na parang namamaga yung akin.. Tapos namumutla pa ako,na nasusuka at nagkaka cold sweats.. Pag di ko na kaya,umiin0m ako ng mefenamic.. But sabi ng OB ko at ng tita ko,masama raw pag umiinom ng painkiller pag may period.. My OB prescribed me to take mosegor,instead..

advice lang, just because most of us girls are having dysmenorrhea doesn't mean it's normal.

2 of my friends thought it was only dysmenorrhea. Nagpacheck up sila sa ob, may cyst sa loob. Yun isang friend ko, inoperahan. Yun isang naman, injection lang para mawala yun cyst, but pag nagpacheck up daw ulit and wala nangyari sa cyst, kailangan na operahan. Pareho sila na during period, nakahiga lang sa bed, tapos minsan naglalagay ng "hot pack" around tummy. Akin naman, feel ko lagi ang dami ng laman ng tiyan ko, tapos sumasakit tiyan ko, tapos nawawala.

Better magpacheck up tayo kaysa ignore lang natin. Instead of taking meds everytime we have, pa-check up muna. Prevention is way cheaper than cure.

Ako I sometimes experience dysmenorrhea, usually pag first day ng period. Nawawala siya if I exercise.

My dad's sisters really get bad bad dysmenorrhea and I seemed to have inherited this too. But good thing lang is I have unbelievably high tolerance sa pain, pero masakit pa rin talaga, and sometimes I don't go to school kasi di ko talaga kinakaya. Okay lang naman daw, no cysts or anything, i make sure I see my OB once every year for annual check-up (very important).

It also helps to do a couple of exercises. When I'm in the think of the pain, I do the crouching dog position, get on your knees (crouching) like a dog, and stick your butt out as far as you can. It helps the pain  ;)
What won't kill me will make me strong.

i used to have a really painful case of dysmenorrhea for years and would only rely on midol to alleviate and eventually remove the pain. but since i started taking ocp, no more dysmenorrhea for me. konting "tusok" of pain na lang on the first day. :)

^nakakawala talaga ng dysmenorrhea kapag naka pills. almost 2 years na akong nag stop sa pills, dati kapag di ko natitiis ang sakit iniinuman ko ng dolfenal pero ngayon tolerable naman na ang pain.

pansin ko lang kapag before dumating ang period ko, nagccrave ako ng manggang hilaw and when i give in sa cravings na yun, inaasahan ko na na may dysmenorrhea na ako niyan.

may nabasa ako before, days before your period, if ma-dysmenorrhea kang magmenstruate, try taking ibuprofen tablets kaagad daw to leesen the pain. it works for me :)

ako laging nagddysmenorrhea. it just stopped when i started taking pills. then i stopped the pills kasi hindi maganda side effect sa akin. now, i just took grapeseed extract. i was surprised, it regulates my menstruation and super light flow lang, no cramps.
I am happy. I am blessed. I feel loved. I am in love.

Noong hindi pa ako nanganak lagi akong may dysmenorrhea pero after i gave birth nawala na din. Kaya ngayon kapag magkakaroon ako hindi na ako nahirapan.

sis Tatiana will try that also, since every month 1st day of period may cramps talaga ako.

sis Cheesecak3 matagal pa ako magtitiis kung ganun...

sis dyan_sk8 advil works for me also, and any mefenamic meds.
