During menstruation, some people experience severe pain and discomfort in the lower abdomen, which can spread to the waist, thighs and legs. This is called dysmenorrhea. This pain can usually be mild to severe and can start from one day before the onset of menstruation or from the day of onset of menstruation. Can last up to 12-62 hours. This problem usually subsides gradually after the age of 30. Physiotherapy can greatly reduce the symptoms of primary dysmenorrhea.
