Menstrual Cramps

Menstrual cramps are often experienced by women along with other problems with their monthly cycle that range from cramping to excessive bleeding. Some women don't cycle regularly, which can be a problem, especially if they are trying to conceive.

Symptoms

Symptoms of menstrual cramps may include amenorrhea (absence of periods), excessive bleeding, irregular periods, premenstrual syndrome or lots of clots.

Causes

Hormonal imbalances may play a part. Stress can make problems worse. More complicated issues like endometriosis and PCOS can also cause more problems with menstruation. Intense sporting activity and low body weight, tumor on ovary or some drugs may cause amenorrhea.

Cautions

See a professional when you experience severe cramps for the first time as an adult, or begin passing clots; if you are on birth control pills and experience severe menstrual cramps; if you have nausea, headache, vomiting and diarrhea along with cramps; if you have severe cramping and heavy bleeding for more than a single day; if your cramps interfere with normal activities and cannot be relieved by aspirin or ibuprofen; if you experience heavy bleeding and feel weak and light-headed or if you bleed between periods; or if you have a heavy menstrual flow and your periods are more than 45 days apart.
