NAUSEA IN MENSTRUAL DISORDERS
Menstrual disorders are defined, in medical terms, as dysmenorrhea. These disorders are usually associated with menstrual cramps, which are caused by uterine contractions, and cause pain and nausea. Typically, pain from menstrual disorders starts a few days before or at the same time as the beginning of menstrual bleeding, it affects the pelvic area and sometimes even the back. The pain can be slight but also intense and can last from just over half a day to a few days. Menstrual pain is usually accompanied by nausea and headaches; in the most serious cases it can also cause vomiting, diarrhea and fatigue. Menstrual disorders tend to decrease with the approach of menopause.
To alleviate menstrual pain we recommend resting, avoiding drinking coffee and alcoholic beverages and avoiding smoking. Exercise, especially if carried out regularly, helps to prevent or alleviate menstrual disorders.
