Painful Periods (Dysmenorrhea)
Most women will normally experience discomfort during the first 2 or 3 days of their period. The discomfort will vary from person to person; it can be a dull ache in the lower back or abdomen, or cramping pains which can become severe enough to cause nausea and vomiting. When there is stress and anxiety, the pain can become worse.
There are two types of menstrual cramps – primary dysmenorrhea and secondary dysmenorrhea.
Primary dysmenorrhea is usually experienced 6 months to a year following the start of menstruation, and there is no underlying cause contributing to the pain. In general, women who have painful periods can expect some relief, often disappearing completely after childbirth.
Secondary dsymenorrhea usually has an underlying cause. This condition typically develops much later on, after menstruation has begun. If periods suddenly become painful after several years of relative freedom from pain, it is likely due to an underlying abnormal condition such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids and polyps, pelvic inflammatory disease or adenomyosis. Use of an intrauterine (IUD) device and coming off the birth control pill can also cause menstrual cramping.
Symptoms of dysmenorrhea include: dull, throbbing pain in the lower abdomen, pain that extends to the lower back and thighs, nausea, vomiting, sweating, dizziness or lightheadedness.

Absence of Menstruation (Amenorrhea)
Amenorrhea is the absence of menstruation; it is a sign of another condition and not a disease itself. The temporary or permanent absence of menstruation may be experienced with various symptoms of hormone imbalance such as acne, altered sex drive (low libido), deep voice, breast milk secretions, weight gain, vision changes, headaches and excessive hair growth on the face and body. There are two types of Amenorrhea, primary and secondary.
Primary Amenorrhea occurs when there has not yet been a first menstrual period by the age of 16. This delay is usually a result of late puberty, most typically seen in very thin or very athletic teenage girls. This is because their bodies lack the normal puberty-related rise in body fat which typically initiates the start of menstruation. Some other causes include: anorexia, chromosomal abnormalities, problems with the hypothalamus, pituitary disease, lack of reproductive organs, and structural abnormality of the vagina. Menstruation may also be delayed due to abnormal female reproductive organs or a genetic disorder involving the sex chromosomes such as Turner’s syndrome.
Secondary Amenorrhea is the absence of menstruation in women who have already begun menstruating and has been experiencing normal, regular cycles. It must be absent for at least three consecutive menstrual cycles without being pregnant. Some of the causes for secondary amenorrhea include: pregnancy or breastfeeding, hormone imbalance, stress, low body weight, too much exercise, thyroid problems, pituitary tumor, premature menopause, certain medications and kinds of birth control.
Some additional symptomsof Primary Amenorrhea include: headaches, acne, vision problems, abnormal blood pressure and excessive hair growth. Additional symptoms of Secondary Amenorrhea include: swollen breasts, headaches, darkening skin, vision problems, nausea, enlarged thyroid gland and increased thirst.
