What Are Menstrual Cramps?
During a woman's menstrual cycle, hormones are released that increase the contractions of the uterine muscle. If the uterus contracts too strongly, it can temporarily decrease the flow of blood and oxygen to the muscle, causing cramps.
Cramps can also be accompanied by headaches, weakness, chills, and dizziness. Gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea can also occur.
Most cramps are just the result of what's going on in your body—not a sign of an underlying gynecological problem. Severe cramps may be a symptom of another medical condition. Always discuss these symptoms with your doctor.
