Welcome to HCM

You have Dysmenorrhea which is usually seen in your age group,if it tolerable and you can use simple analgesics in consultation with Gynecologist.If NSAID is not tolerated a Cox 2 inhibitor may be given.

If it is primary type but you should get examined once and evaluate with a Pelvic ultrasonography there are few secondary causes like Endometriosis,any cyst,muscle tumor.

If every thing is fine supportive measures like normal work during periods and local hot fomentaton,accupressure therapy helps .

With advise of your Gynecologist may give hormone therapy some cases, even IUCD devices with hormones helps to relive pain and sufferings.

Please take care

Good luck to you.
