Secondary dysmenorrhea- probable treatment?
Hello, my friend is 32 years old. Recently she has been diagnosed with secondary dysmenorrhea. Her period pain was not improving after several months of treatment, pain occurring more to one or both sides rather than in the middle of the pelvis. She is suffering a lot. We are worried for her. She is staying alone and her parents are away. So I am taking care of her as much as possible. I would like to know the possible treatment for Secondary dysmenorrhea. Please comment.
@manju Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. NSAIDs are the most common treatment for both primary and secondary dysmenorrhea. They decrease menstrual pain by decreasing intrauterine pressure and lowering prostaglandin F2α (PGF2α) levels in menstrual fluid. Treatment for endometriosis can include: hormone therapy, surgery, a combination of both. Treatment for fibroids can include: medication to shrink the fibroids, before surgery, MRI and ultrasound – in which the MRI locates the fibroid, and the ultrasound is used to heat and destroy the fibroid tissue arterial embolization – in which sand-like particles are injected into the artery to block the blood supply to the fibroid, causing it to gradually die surgical removal of the fibroid, by various methods.
