Definition - What does Dysmenorrhea mean?
Kinkly explains Dysmenorrhea
While there is no cure for dysmenorrhea, there are some treatments that can alleviate the pain. Birth control pills, for example, have been shown to drastically improve this condition. However, since these pills are often accompanied by potentially dangerous side effects, several women choose to adopt a holistic approach to alleviate the symptoms. Hot stone massages, acupuncture and acupressure are among the most popular alternative remedies to dysmenorrhea.
