During menstruation a bit of pain and discomfort is normal in all women. But when the pain gets to an extreme level where activities get restricted, that is when one knows that she is suffering from Dysmenorrhea. It can cause the patient with severe pain and throbbing along with nausea and burning sensation. It can cause heavy loss of blood, a condition known as hemorrhage.
Other external factors that can cause Dysmenorrhea are normal periodic cycles, diet low in calcium, stopping intake of oral contraceptives, primary Dysmenorrhea, secondary Dysmenorrhea, alcoholism, functional disorders like ovarian malfunction etc.
