More than half of all menstruating women experience cramps and in at least one in four of these women the cramps are severe. Menstrual cramps (Dysmenorrhea) are painful sensations that affect many women before and during a menstrual period.
Dysmenorrheatends to begin after ovulation when an egg is released from the ovaries and travels down the fallopian tube. Menstrual cramps are characterized by pelvic, lower abdomen and lower back pain. Commonly Menstrual cramps are caused by heavy flow, passing clots, uterine fibroids, or endometriosis.
Treatment for Dysmenorrhea include applying heat to painful areas, hormonal birth control, pain-relieving pain medications and in severe cases caused by endometriosis or fibroids, surgical removal of the uterus (hysterectomy). Medications used to treat period cramps include Ibuprofen, Ketoprofen and Naproxen.
Each medication contains negative side effects that include nausea, vomiting, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, dizziness, headache, loss of appetite, skin rash, ringing in the ears, heartburn and bruising. CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive chemical compound derived from the hemp plant and is know for its potential therapeutic effects.
