What is Dysmenorrhoea?
Dysmenorrhoea is the medical term for period pain that is severe enough to affect a woman’s normal daily activities. Other symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhoea, fainting and thigh pain commonly occur with it. Dysmenorrhoea can be extremely debilitating for some girls and women (even if painkillers are taken), and may lead to missed school, uni or work. So what tests should be done, and what treatment can help?
