Gynaec Problems

Gynaecological Problems Such As Dysmenorrhea, Endometriosis, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease And Irregular Periods

What is dysmenorrhea?

Dysmenorrhea is the medical term for menstrual cramps. There are two types of dysmenorrhea: “primary” and “secondary.”

Primary dysmenorrhea is common menstrual cramps. Cramps usually begin one to two years after a woman starts getting her period. Pain is usually felt in the lower abdomen or back and can range from mild to severe. Common menstrual cramps usually become less painful as a woman ages, and may stop entirely if the woman has a baby.

Secondary dysmenorrhea is pain that is caused by a disorder in the woman’s reproductive organs. Pain from secondary dysmenorrhea usually begins earlier in the menstrual cycle and lasts longer than common menstrual cramps.

What is endometriosis?

Endometriosis is the abnormal growth of cells (endometrial cells) similar to those that form the inside of the uterus, but in a location outside of the uterus. Endometrial cells are cells that are shed each month during menstruation. The cells of endometriosis attach themselves to tissue outside the uterus and are called endometriosis implants. These implants are most commonly found on the ovaries, the Fallopian tubes, outer surfaces of the uterus or intestines, and on the surface lining of the pelvic cavity. They can also be found in the Vagina, cervix and bladder, although less commonly than other locations in the pelvis.

What is Pelvic Inflammatory Disease ?

Even if you have pelvic inflammatory disease, you might not have symptoms. If you do have symptoms, they could be severe. The most common symptom of pelvic inflammatory disease is pain in your lower abdomen. Other symptoms that you may or may not have include

  • Fever
  • Vaginal discharge that may have an odor
  • Painful intercourse
  • Painful urination
  • Irregular menstrual bleeding
  • Pain in the upper right abdomen (rare)

Sometimes pelvic inflammatory disease comes on suddenly with extreme pain and fever, especially if it is caused by gonorrhea.

Irregular menstruation

Irregular cycles/periods is an abnormal variation in length of menstrual cycle in a woman. Normally, it is actually unusual for a woman to experience cycle length variations of less than four days between the shortest and longest cycle lengths. However, length variation between eight and 20 days is considered as moderately irregular cycles. Variation of 21 days or more is considered very irregular.]Alternatively, an irregular menstruation period may be defined as one shorter than 21 days, or longer than 36 days

Some women may develop irregular periods — or stop having periods altogether — as a result of certain medications, excessive exercise, very low body weight, or not eating enough calories. Others may develop problems as a result of a hormone imbalance. For example, disorders of the thyroid gland can cause menstrual irregularities if the levels of thyroid hormone in the blood become too low or too high.

Some women have irregular periods because their bodies produce too much androgen, which is a hormone that causes increased muscle mass, facial hair, and deepening of the voice in males and the development of pubic hair and increased height in girls. High amounts of androgen can also cause hair growth on the face, chin, chest, and abdomen, and is sometimes associated with excessive weight gain.

Homoeopathic View

We try to find the cause of the dysmenorrhea, endometriosis or pelvic inflammatory disease and irregular menstrual cycle in a particular patient. Normally there is some emotional stress in these women which is causing these problems. The homeopath looks at the complete picture of the patient and the life situation which has caused the stress and ultimately the cramps or abnormal growth of endometrium or inflammation of the pelvic organs. Normally we do not believe in giving pain killers or hormonal treatment, we treat the patient as a whole and by this way whole body chemistry gets treated and patient is cured of her symptoms, while pain killers offer only temporary relief.
