Physiological pain is an abnormal condition, mainly occurring before and after menstruation, which has a serious impact on women. After this situation occurs, it is necessary to clarify the cause and pay special attention to prevention.
What kind of physiological pain is normal
Physiological pain is divided into physiological pain and pathological pain. Generally, dysmenorrhea that occurs before the age of 18 is mostly physiological, which means it is often accompanied by normal menstrual flow. If the pain is tolerable, there is no need for intervention. Physiological dysmenorrhea often occurs shortly after menarche and is mainly related to the immature reproductive system in young girls. Sometimes it is also closely related to psychological factors. It is also possible that some cytokines such as prostaglandin E2 during menstruation stimulate uterine muscle contraction, leading to one-time uterine ischemia or intestinal spasms, which can cause dysmenorrhea. In addition, in young girls who have just started menstruation, this feeling of pain will be more pronounced. As long as there is no obvious abnormality in the pelvic organs after detailed gynecological clinical examination, this type of dysmenorrhea will not cause other adverse consequences. The pain sensation caused by physiological dysmenorrhea is mostly intermittent colic and spasmodic pain.
Causes of physiological pain
1. Physiological daily intense exercise: Many female friends do not pay attention to their bodies during physical activity, participate in intense exercise, etc., and physical pain is easy to occur.
2. Drinking strong tea during menstruation: During menstruation, one should drink plenty of plain water and avoid drinking strong tea. Because strong tea can stimulate the nerves and cardiovascular system, it can easily lead to dysmenorrhea, prolonged menstruation, or excessive bleeding. At the same time, the tannins in tea combine with the iron in food in the intestines, causing sedimentation, affecting iron absorption and anemia. In addition, it is best not to drink, smoke, or eat stimulating foods during physiological days.
3. Emotional excitement: On a physiological day, it is important to have a happy mood as usual, to prevent emotional changes, and to maintain a stable relationship. If emotions are excited, depression and anger can lead to delayed menstruation, dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, and other symptoms.
4. Cold: Pay attention to insulation during physiological days to avoid catching a cold. Do not get caught in the rain, wade in water, swim, or sit in damp or cool places, or at the air duct openings of air conditioning or electric fans. Do not bathe or wash your feet in cold water to avoid menstrual disorders.
5. Menstrual sexual activity: Sexual activity should be prohibited during menstruation. During menstruation, the endometrium peels off and there is a fresh creative surface in the uterine cavity. If there is sexual activity, bacteria may be brought in, causing inflammation of the reproductive organs and leading to dysmenorrhea.
