Menstrual cramps – relaxed periods
Mild pain at the start of menstrual bleeding is normal. It is caused by messengers released by the body to cause the womb (uterus) to contract, thus shedding the mucous membrane lining the uterus. Excessive release of these messengers causes cramp-like pelvic pain. This is what your doctor calls dysmenorrhoea. If you have such problems, be sure to see your gynaecologist because these symptoms may also be signs of disease.
