Painful Periods and Cramps
Most of the females have more or less pain and cramping during their monthly menstruation cycles. However, these symptoms usually are not severe enough to disrupt daily life.
The cramping and pain usually start a day or two before the period begins with the most severe discomfort occurring on the first day of menstruation.
There are many known symptoms during menstruation, and some of the more common ones include depression, bloating, fatigue, social withdrawal, angry outbursts, breast tenderness, vague aches and pains, menstrual migraines, and weight gain.
Some of the suspected causes are :
Excess oestrogen level in blood
Progesterone hormone deficiency
Hypoglycemia (reduction of blood glucose level)
Many women have food cravings during PMS, and the cravings usually focus on sweets and snacks such as ice cream, chocolate and potato chips. Eating complex carbohydrates is probably the best way to ward off those food cravings. These foods are a good source of fiber, which helps to clear excess estrogen from your body. High levels of estrogen have been shown to contribute to PMS. Also, research has found that high-carbohydrate foods actually relieve the psychological symptoms of tension, anxiety and mood swings that accompany PMS.
In most of the cases, mild to moderate pain and cramping during the menstrual period is considered normal and does not require a special trip to your doctor. There are things you can do at home to help yourself feel better if you experience painful periods and cramping .

If you are having severe pain during your menstrual periods, which is called dysmenorrhea, you should see a doctor for an evaluation. It is common and can be a hereditary condition that disappears or improves after the birth of a first child. However, dysmenorrhea can also begin later in life and be caused by a disorder such as a pelvic infection or endometriosis.
