Dysmenorrhoea is pure pain experienced by women as part of the menstrual cycle. Pain can present as muscle cramps, intense spasms, and back pain usually before the onset of the period. Dysmenorrhoea occurs when the muscular wall of the world contracts to encourage the lining to shed away as part of the monthly period. Conditions that cause dysmenorrhoea may include endometriosis, broids, pelvic inflammatory disease and adenomyosis.
