Thanks for the query.

Pain during menstruation is called dysmenorrhea.
Secondary dysmenorrhea causes severe pain .
You need to get an ultrasound to rule out secondary causes of pain during menstruation like fibroid uterus, endometriosis, adenomyosis.
You can take NSAID's for symptomatic pain relief .
Contact your Gynecologist for definitive diagnosis and treatment protocol.
