A woman’s monthly period is a wonderful thing–it’s a sign of fertility, youth, and health after all. But when it comes to dysmenorrhea, every woman post-puberty and premenopausal will agree that it’s something not taken lightly. In fact, the pain and discomfort could be as bad as having a severe “heart attack”, according to a professor of reproductive health at University College London. This means, no one has the right to call someone who seriously experiences this as being “dramatic”.
According to Faith Suluen, MD “The pain intensity tends to increase when estrogen levels are low and progesterone levels are high. When it gets too bad, it can be disabling. Every woman experiences it differently. Some suffer from extreme pain, while others go through it easily.”
During the period, the uterus squeezes so that blood in the uterine wall detaches and eventually flows out of the vagina. If it contracts too strongly, it can press against nearby blood vessels. This briefly cuts off the oxygen supply in the uterus which causes pain.
No need to pop single ibuprofen as Jeunesse Anion shares these all-natural and pain-relieving tips that anyone can begin this Women’s Month.
Use a hot pack.
This helps relax your uterine muscles and boost blood circulation. Some studies show that these packs are as effective as ibuprofen. Invest in a high-quality hot pack and make it a part of your first aid essential. However, a water bottle or hand towels and a ziplock can be an alternative.
Take a hot bath.
If you’re not a fan of hot packs, taking a hot bath can be best for you. Heat is pretty therapeutic as it supports blood circulation especially in the pelvic area and eases cramps. It’s best partnered with a good night’s sleep.
Apply essential oils.
Try using these easy to find essential oils for period pains: lavender to relax your muscles, rose to ease cramps, nausea, and fatigue, ylang-ylang to help you cope with stress and depression, and peppermint to relieve you from headaches and inflammation. Among these, lavender is best for heavy flows.
For some, life begins after coffee. But it’s not always the case, especially when you’re on your period. Caffeine can make dysmenorrhea significantly worse. Its diuretic nature increases urine production and triggers dehydration that is home to dysmenorrhea. Drink lots of water or go for herbal teas and decaffeinated drinks, instead. Load up on water-rich fruits and vegetables as well like watermelon, orange, cucumber, tomatoes, and lettuce.
Use anion sanitary pads
Naturally found in nature such as beach, forest, and mountain, anion possesses remarkable therapeutic benefits. Once they reach our bloodstream, they produce biochemical reactions that cause a multitude of healing benefits. Anions can lower our stress levels, strengthen our immune system, reinforce better sleep, and increase mental energy. When incorporated in sanitary pads, they can eliminate unwanted odors, balance hormones, and lessen pain.
The University of the Philippines Inorganic Nanomaterials Institute of Chemistry reports that each anion strip in Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins, once it touches moisture, releases 6,180 anions. More than enough to be able to reach our bloodstream and eliminate 99.9 percent of bacteria and fungi that causes unwanted odor. More importantly, once the anion was released in the strip, it will bind positively charged ions such as potassium, calcium, and sodium, which restricts their movement through the ion channel. The interaction between two oppositely charged ions is very strong that it will not allow the movement of these positively charged ions. And if ions can’t move, it stops sending pain signals to the body that causes dysmenorrhea!
Jeunesse is like no other. If you’re tired of getting paralyzed every time dysmenorrhea hits you, now is the best time to give Jeunesse Anion a try. It is available in five different variants – ultra‐day pad, day pad non-wing, ultra-night pad, all-night pad, and panty liner that all guarantee extra care and protection.

Dysmenorrhea, can be said to be one of the most common gynecological symptoms, is a nightmare for many women. Once a girl teased like this: [Why can Jiang Jie be so strong? She must have a very serious dysmenorrhea, which is painful for a few days every month. Even dysmenorrhea can be tolerated. Nailing bamboo sticks and tiger stools count as what! ]
Dysmenorrhea is how to return a responsibility?
Although dysmenorrhea is so common and painful, 90% The above dysmenorrhea cannot find out the organic pathological changes of what, that is to say, All organs of the reproductive system are normal in structure and function, which we call primary dysmenorrhea. In this case, the problem of dysmenorrhea is only pain.
It may be quite infuriating to see it. Dysmenorrhea is [just] painful. What else do you want to do?
1. Pain is a self-protection mechanism
When you feel pain, the body is actually reminding you that a certain part of the body may be being hurt and you need to do something.
For example, toothache reminds you that you may have tooth decay. Abdominal pain reminds you which organ may have inflammation. A fall that hurts your leg reminds you that you may have a fracture. In short, pain is not the focus of the problem. The disease that pain reminds you to pay attention to is the key to the problem.
2. Dysmenorrhea is mainly symptomatic treatment.
However, dysmenorrhea is different. It is caused by severe contraction of uterine smooth muscle, which compresses blood vessels in the uterus and causes pain due to short-term ischemia. Only a small part of dysmenorrhea is caused by pathological changes in pelvic organs.
Therefore, most dysmenorrhea is actually just pain, It reminds the body to pay attention to the effect is not big, you have no what other problems except dysmenorrhea. This also determines that, in most cases, when treating primary dysmenorrhea, we have no way to improve the symptoms of dysmenorrhea through the treatment of organs, but can only simply carry out symptomatic treatment for pain.
Can dysmenorrhea be treated? How?
Although dysmenorrhea is a torture to many women, it is not difficult to treat it-just take painkillers.
Step 1: Analgesics
Aspirin, Fenbid, Sanli pain and so on will do. When it hurts, or when it feels painful, take one tablet and the effect is really good.
Many people are afraid of taking painkillers, I feel that the side effects are big. This is to be frightened by the side effects of drugs, only staring at the bad side, but ignoring its actual help. In fact, the side effects of these painkillers are not big, common are some gastrointestinal symptoms, and usually a menstruation is at most three days before eating, sometimes one day is enough, the side effects haven’t yet come out!
Moreover, in many cases, there is dysmenorrhea and then nervousness, which in turn may be more painful.
With painkillers, you will find that the effect is very good, the tension is eliminated, and the rest is good, which is also helpful to relieve dysmenorrhea.
Of course, it should also be reminded that women with gastric ulcer or asthma should not use painkillers, which have an impact on these two diseases.
2. Short-acting contraceptives
In fact, in foreign countries, many women with dysmenorrhea take short-acting oral contraceptives to treat dysmenorrhea.
Short-acting contraceptives are those that are taken one tablet a day for 21 consecutive days. Note that they are not emergency contraceptives afterwards!
For women who have contraceptive requirements at the same time, it can be said that they kill two birds with one stone and the effect is very good.
However, because the ingredient of short-acting oral contraceptives is estrogen and progesterone, many people in China dare not touch the word [hormone] when they mention it, just like hearing poison. In addition, some girls who have not had sex feel that taking birth control pills seems to be tantamount to declaring the end of their virginity, which is very contradictory. Therefore, not many people in China choose this method.
In fact, short-acting oral contraceptives are still very safe to use in a short period of time, such as taking half a year, or very safe. Moreover, it is possible to relieve dysmenorrhea after stopping the drug. Those girls who suffer from dysmenorrhea and are not as good as dead may as well give it a try.
3. Folk [folk prescription]?
In addition, there are various folk legends about dysmenorrhea, such as covering hot water bags, drinking ginger soup, or not touching cold water, etc. These things are different from person to person, and medical statistics cannot be made to form a good theory to guide more people. If you find out some rules suitable for yourself, you may as well use them.
However, your life could have been simpler and easier, and you could have devoted more energy to enjoying other beautiful things. However, for many people, one painkiller can solve the problem. Instead, you have to give yourself many taboos and let yourself endure more pain.
Also mention a point, because after childbirth, the cervix will be relatively relaxed than before childbirth, so, the uterus smooth muscle after childbirth does not need very severe contraction, it can be relatively easy to discharge menstrual blood. Therefore, a considerable number of people, after giving birth to children, dysmenorrhea themselves will get better.
Finally, I would like to remind readers and friends, Above these are for the treatment of primary dysmenorrhea, that is to say, there is no organic disease. If itself is secondary dysmenorrhea with other diseases, then it should be treated for the disease. Therefore, before their own treatment, it is best to go to the hospital for examination, eliminate organic diseases, and see if they are really primary dysmenorrhea.
What is secondary dysmenorrhea?
Having said the primary dysmenorrhea, let’s talk about a few words of secondary dysmenorrhea.
Secondary dysmenorrhea is much less common than primary dysmenorrhea. It is a symptom of some gynecological diseases, such as hysteromyoma, endometriosis and adenomyosis. These diseases, such as gynecological B-ultrasound examination, can usually be clearly diagnosed.
Some women do not have dysmenorrhea when they are young, but only when they are old, or dysmenorrhea gradually worsens over and over again, and sometimes they will suffer from pain after menstruation. When these symptoms occur, it is likely to be secondary dysmenorrhea.
If you begin to suspect that your dysmenorrhea is [secondary], it is recommended to go to the hospital for examination. After all, simple analgesic treatment cannot cure the disease that causes secondary dysmenorrhea.
Therefore, painkillers cannot [cure] secondary dysmenorrhea, and the specific treatment method still depends on the attending doctor.
Having said so much, have you learned how to deal with dysmenorrhea, sister?
