“It felt like someone was stabbing me…”

23 Dec

From a NYTimes article on dysmenorrhea, or painful cramping, during menstruation. Yes, some cramping is normal – but when it gets to the point where a woman is missing school or work because of unbearable cramping, vomiting, or even diarrhea, it’s not normal and women shouldn’t be made to feel like they just have to deal with it. Many women are in pain 2-3 days a month, which can add up to 2-3 week per year. In fact, there are physiological reasons for excessive, painful cramping; women can seek treatment to counteract these physiological imbalances. See article for more detail:
