Unterleibsschmerzen: Was Frauen wissen sollten

Abdominal pain: What women should know

You are not alone - many women know the unpleasant pulling or stabbing in the lower abdomen that causes us problems. Especially shortly before and in the first days of the period, it can be difficult for us to master our everyday life as usual.

But not only menstrual pain can make itself felt in the form of abdominal pain. There are many possible reasons why You may be uncomfortable. If You have pain that lasts longer or is unusually severe, You should definitely consult a doctor.

What does period pain feel like?

The pain we feel during menstruation can feel different. They can be stinging, aching or colicky and make us feel like someone is wringing out our uterus. Sometimes it's quiet for a few seconds between spasms before the next wave comes.

Symptoms usually start just before or with Your period and can last 1 to 2 days. In some cases, they radiate to the lower back.

What are primary and secondary period pains?

Primary menstrual pain is a common side effect of menstruation. If You suffer from this pain, it may be because Your body is producing more prostaglandins, hormone-like messenger substances that trigger contractions in the uterus and thus promote the escape of blood and mucous membrane.

This pain can vary in intensity and feel from woman to woman. Some women experience only mild spasms, while others experience more intense pain.

Secondary menstrual pain, on the other hand, can indicate an underlying disease. Endometriosis is one such disease that is often associated with abdominal pain. However, it can be difficult to diagnose because symptoms are not always clear and can vary from woman to woman.

Fibroids, nodular growths or tumors of muscle and connective tissue in the wall of the uterus, can also cause abdominal pain. These benign tumors are the most common of the female reproductive organs and in some cases can affect well-being.

In addition to diseases, other factors such as an inserted spiral can also trigger menstrual pain. If You suffer from abdominal pain that is prolonged or unusually severe, it is important that You seek medical advice. This is the only way that a possible illness can be recognized and treated at an early stage.

What is mean pain during the period?

Abdominal pain can be really uncomfortable! However, if You don't have a period, there could be a number of reasons for Your pain.

If You are in the middle of Your cycle, it can be what is known as middle pain. This typically occurs on one side of Your lower abdomen and may vary or remain the same from cycle to cycle. Up to 40 percent of women of childbearing age have experienced middle pain at some point. A prolapsed uterus can also cause abdominal pain.

What abdominal pain is there during conception and pregnancy?

If You feel unwell between the 4th and 7th day after You ovulated, it could be implantation pain. These can occur when the fertilized egg implants itself in the lining of the uterus. The implantation pain can be accompanied by spotting.

In rare cases, however, abdominal pain can also be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. This is potentially life-threatening and usually occurs between 6 and 9 weeks of pregnancy. So if You have abdominal cramps and vaginal bleeding in addition to Your missed periods, You should see a doctor as soon as possible.

More abdominal pain:

Abdominal pain can also be caused by causes other than pregnancy. A common cause is bladder infections caused by a bacterial infection. Young women in particular are affected and typical symptoms include pain when urinating and abdominal pain.

Another possible cause of abdominal pain is appendicitis, also known as appendicitis. This is common in adults and is characterized by pain in the lower right abdomen and abdominal stiffness.

Digestive problems can also lead to pain in the lower abdomen. Infectious diarrheal diseases are a common cause of colicky pain in the abdomen or lower abdomen.

If You experience persistent abdominal pain, You should see a doctor to determine the cause and receive appropriate treatment. It's important to listen to Your body and take Your health seriously.
