What are the first signs of Dysmenorrhea?

The first signs of dysmenorrhea typically appear a few days before menstruation and can last for a few days during the period. The most common symptoms of dysmenorrhea include:
  • Cramping or aching pain in the lower abdomen or lower back
  • Throbbing or sharp pain
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Irritability
  • Depression or anxiety
  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping

Symptoms can vary from woman to woman and can range from mild to severe. Some women may only experience mild discomfort, while others may have debilitating pain that interferes with their daily activities.

It is also important to note that secondary dysmenorrhea symptoms may not be so obvious and may include heavy bleeding, irregular periods, and pain during intercourse.
