Dysmenorrhea and other Diseases
Dysmenorrhea associated with the onset of the monthly menstrual cycle is generally harmless so to speak, and the symptoms disappear within a few days after the conclusion of a menstrual period. However, due to a weakened immunity state of the body, there is a high chance that the person may contract diseases such as Sexually Transmitted Infection, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, etc. Therefore, in the time of occurrence of such events, it is essential to consult a gynecologist for treatment.
The diagnosis of such affliction by the dysmenorrhea specialist is undertaken using the medical history of the patient and the frequency of the occurrence of the pain along with its intensity. The doctor may suggest dietary reforms and encourage desisting from bad habits to deal with the problem.
Specialists generally undertake Dysmenorrhea treatment by using laboratory testing, laparoscopy and gynecological ultrasonography. Medications like NSAIDs, hormonal birth control, etc., may be prescribed as well.
