Your period reveals a lot of information about your health. If you notice some unusual symptoms, such as pain, irregular flow, or a change of the color of your period, there may be something wrong with your health.
Here are some period symptoms that will help you to identify whether you are dealing with some health problem.
The occurrence of a painful period that causes abdominal cramps is called dysmenorrhea. This problem is caused by excessive levels of prostaglandin, a hormone that is related to pain and inflammation. Sadly, this is a very common issue that affects half of the female population.
Another less common condition is endometriosis which causes severe painful cramps that last for over two days. This condition occurs when the uttering lining is appearing outside the uterus, usually in the pelvic area. About 10% of the female population suffers from this condition.
