5 best homeopathic medicines for painful mensesPainful menses is a common occurrence in females. Usually there is pain in the abdomen, back, thighs and legs. Dysmenorrhea is the medical term for this problem.  It is so common that a lot of females consider it as normal. Before we come to the issue of the best homeopathic medicines for painful menses, let us understand the problem better.

Is it normal to have painful menses?

Just because the problem is quite common, females tend to think that it is normal to have painful menses. The fact is that it is not normal. Menstruation is a physiological process. There is no need for it be painful. In case pain occurs during periods, it needs to be treated.

What are the symptoms of dysmenorrhea or painful menses?

As is evident from the term itself, the most important symptom is pain. This pain may be present in lower abdomen, back, thighs and legs. The nature and severity of pain varies from one female to another. Some patients have mild pain. In others, the pain is severe. It may be so severe in some cases that one is forced to be in bed.

While some have cramping pains, others feel discomfort only. In some cases the pain is in the abdomen or lower abdomen. In others, the pain occurs in the back or legs.

Some other symptoms too accompany the pain. Nausea or vomiting are commonly present with the pain. Irritability is also present in some cases. Some patients lose appetite.

In most of the cases, the onset of pain is a little before the menses. The pain usually gets better when the flow begins or at the most by the second day. Hot fomentation or bending double also relieves pain.

Treatment for painful menses or dysmenorrhea

The mainstay of the allopathic system of medicine for the treatment of painful menses is painkillers. They don’t have any lasting treatment for dysmenorrhea. Most females keep taking painkillers during every menstrual cycle. This happens as the allopathic system of medicine can do no better. Even patients start thinking that this is normal. There is no need to think so.

This means that after some time of treatment, the problem is completely cured. One is able to get rid of the problem permanently. The need to take painkillers no longer remains.
