About Dysmenorrhoea

WHAT IS DYSMENORRHOEA?

  • Dysmenorrhoea is defined as painful cramps that occur with menstruation.¹
  • Dysmenorrhoea is considered primary when any other underlying pathological conditions have been ruled out and is most common in the late teens and early twenties.¹
  • Although estimates of its prevalence vary widely, it is the most common gynaecological problem in women of all ages and races.¹
  • Secondary dysmenorrhoea results from specific pelvic pathology, eg. endometriosis.¹

DIAGNOSIS OF PRIMARY DYSMENORRHOEA

  • The diagnosis of primary dysmenorrhoea is based on clinical history and physical examination.¹
  • A family history may be helpful in differentiating primary from secondary dysmenorrhoea.¹
  • Some of the risk factors include irregular menstrual cycles, clinically suspected pelvic inflammatory disease.¹
  • This clinical diagnosis should exclude conditions which may have a similar clinical presentation, such as: pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain.¹

TREATMENT OF PRIMARY DYSMENORRHOEA

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are recommended as the first-line treatment for primary dysmenorrhoea.¹
  • The choice of NSAID should be based on effectiveness and tolerability for the individual patient.¹
  • Oral, intravaginal, and intra-uterine hormonal contraceptives have also been recommended in the treatment of primary dysmenorrhoea.¹
