Ginger And Primary Dysmenorrhea

According to the American Association of Family Physicians, Primary dysmenorrhea is defined as cramping pain in the lower abdomen occurring just before or during menstruation, in the absence of other diseases.

It affects a lot of adolescents and young adults and is hardly reported to the physicians. It is usually treated with anti-inflammatory medicines like Ibuprofen or anti-spasmodics like Buscopan.

Not all women respond to treatment using these medications. If you are one of these women, please visit your family doctor to ensure that there are no secondary issues that may worsen your pain and discomfort.

According to Research, taking 750mg to 2000mg daily in divided doses of ginger helps to relieve the pain of primary dysmenorrhea. Its effectiveness is equal to that of Ibuprofen. It is best to start taking the ginger powder as a tea two days before your menstruation starts to get the maximal anti-inflammatory and pain reduction effect.
