How Do Period Pain And Cramps Affect Women In The Middle East?

Period/menstrual pain and cramps (also known as dysmenorrhoea) is the most common period related health concern women face and it is particularly common in the Middle East.1

 

Many girls and women with period pain experience it in the belly or pelvis, legs, back, or head. Some have gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting. It may also cause dizziness, fatigue, or flu-like symptoms.2

 

About 3 in every 4 women turn to family and friends for advice, while only about 1 in every 4 women consult a doctor for their pain.3,4 Period pain is a significant health problem that deserves attention.

 

Whatever you are experiencing, you are not alone.
Millions of women around the world suffer from period pain and cramps.5

Dysmenorrhoea can be more than just pain and discomfort.
