Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,
Thanks for posting your query in HealthcareMagic,

I have gone through your query and can certainly understand your concern,

Pain during periods (dysmenorrhea) can be primary or secondary. Primary is otherwise, normal menstrual cramps. The pain associated varies from person to person according to their own tolerance potential.

When menstrual cramps are associated with the following features like:

- excessive bleeding or passage of blood clots

- bleeding lasting for more than 7 days, or having irregular periods

- passage of white discharge or severe itching over the vagina along with abdominal pain even in the absence of periods

- if you are sexually active

- if you are on any particular medications

If the above factors are present, I would suggest it best to consult with a OBGYN for proper investigations like abdominal USG or local examination to rule out other possible secondary causes of menstrual cramps.

Some of the methods to treat primary dysmenorrhea are as follows:

- plenty of fluids during menstrual cramps
- apply hot water bath over the areas affected.
- drink ginger tea as it helps in reducing cramps.
- cinnamon is a good anti-spasmodic and anti- inflammatory. Consume a cup of cinnamon tea daily during the periods.

I hope this helps,

Please feel free to discuss further,

Kind regards
