What is Period Pain Ayurvedic treatment


Painful periods are periods in which a woman has severe throbbing or cramping pain in the lower abdomen that comes and goes, along with back pain in some cases.12Painful periods is medically known as “dysmenorrhea”.3

Many women have painful periods which makes it hard to do normal household work, job, or school-related activities during each menstrual cycle. Painful menstruation is one of the major causes of absenteeism from school and work among women in their teens and 20s.1

Although periods are a normal part of a woman's life, severe period pain need not be. Women do not have to suffer because of it - period pain can be treated with medicines.3

Ayurveda proposes the factor of 'stressful lives' of women in the modern world which is responsible for the development of painful periods or 'Kashtartava'. It further states that the challenges women face in their daily life today results in Mithya Ahar, vihar (improper diet & lifestyle), over-exertion & malnutrition, which causes vikruti (state of disease) in the “Rutuchakra’’ (cycle of nature) leading to various vyadhi (pain and discomfort) in their monthly period.4
