Massage Therapy For Dysmenorrhea, Menoxenia

Dysmenorrhoea means painful periods. Normal menstruation that happens to be painful is known as primary dysmenorrhoea, while secondary dysmenorrhoea refers to period pain caused by certain reproductive disorders, such as endometriosis. In primary dysmenorrhoea, it is thought that the muscles of the uterus squeeze and contract harder than normal to dislodge the thickened lining. These contractions may also hamper blood flow to the uterus, exacerbating the pain. Women of any age can experience painful periods and some women find that periods are no longer painful after pregnancy and childbirth.
