Premenstrual Syndrome and Menstrual Pain

Assalamualaikum..

Dah lama maCy tak share info especially science info kan? Untuk tidak menjadikan blog ini terus dahagakan ilmu serta menjadi lokasi maCy terus-menerus merepek, so this time maCy nak share about
menstrual pain and premenstrual syndrome or PMS.
~Most of the info will be shared in English because there are few terms which might make my face turn red if it is said in Malay..

maCy, anda cikgu Sains jangan terus begini..>.<"
.......................

First of all, all we have to know is PMS is different from menstrual pain.

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

Many women have to deal with PMS, cramps or headache especially when they are in their teens. PMS is the term for the physical and emotional symptoms that many of them right before their periods begin each month.

They might experiences :
  • acne
  • bloating
  • fatigue
  • backaches
  • sore breasts
  • headaches
  • constipation
  • diarrhea
  • food cravings
  • depression or feeling blue
  • irritability
  • difficulty concentrating
  • difficulty handling stress

Usually the symptoms begin and worst a week or two before the menstrual starts and will usually disappear when the menstrual starts.
From what I have read, there is no exact factor for PMS. However, from what I have learn for this 20 years, it is linked to the changing of hormone level.

Sakit ni.. jangan kaco..

Menstrual Pain

I hate menstrual pain. Menstrual periods can be light and easy for some teens and young women but for others, they can be a burden when accompanied by painful cramps. Cramps can be a BIG reason why girls are absent from classes, why they may say no for a movie with their friends and why they even avoid a date with my their boyfriend.

The medical term for menstrual pain is dysmenorrhea.

Primary dysmenorrhea : Cramps (pain in the lower belly area and/or lower back) can start 1-2 days before your period comes and can last 2-4 days.

Secondary dysmenorrhea : When cramps and, for some, lower back pain are a result of a medical problem such as pelvic inflammatory disease.

Menstrual cramps?
It is common among Malaysian woman to suffer menstrual cramps (or dalam bahasa ibundanya "senggugut")
Menstrual cramps are caused by uterine contractions.

Other Symptom a Women May Have :
  • Nausea (feeling like you want to throw up)
  • Vomiting (throwing up)
  • Loose bowel movements/diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Bloating in your belly area
  • Headaches
  • Lightheadedness (feeling faint)

Ways to Release PMS and Menstrual Pains
  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Prevent of taking processed foods like chips
  • Reduce salt intake (helps to retain water in the body)
  • Drink more water
  • Say no to caffeine and cold drinks
  • Avoid tea, watermelon, pineapple, etc (it can increase the pain)
  • heating pad placed on your abdomen (lower belly) ~ohh i like this one
  • take chocolate + hot stuff = HOt chocolate ~the one i love most :D

I really do not suggest any to take painkiller..

Actually, i got the idea to share about girl's stuff after reading this post : ini blog sugar2 kapas strawberry :: pmpn merokok???
