Doctors Confirms Period Cramps Are As Painful As Heart Attacks.
March 1, 2018
There are many people out there — both men and women — who don’t believe that period pain is really that big of a deal. When people discuss why they couldn’t go out or why they had to miss work because they got their period, they are met with eye rolls and dismissive comments saying that it can’t be that bad. Most of these people who think this way are men.
Most often women are hesitant to share just how painful their period cramps are, especially to a doctor. Why? Well, it’shard to get men to acknowledge things they don’t experience and women are often labeled “delicate,” “dramatic,” or “oversharing,” when they discuss the pain the experience each month.
This means many women just suffer silence.
John Guillebaud, a professor of reproductive health at University College London, told Quartz that patients have described severe cramps, called Dysmenorrhea (the fancy medical word for menstrual pain), as "almost as bad as having a heart attack." Yeah, ibuprofen just isn't gonna cut it.
Women from around the globe are speaking out on what science has finally confirmed as true.
What do you think about this? And what are some healthy, wholistic ways to ease the body of painful cramping ?
