Tens Unit for Menstrual Cramps and Pain (Dysmenorrhea)

Menstrual pain is also known as dysmenorrhea or period pain. The term dysmenorrhea is Greek for painful menstruation. Many women experience discomfort at the time of their periods. For most, this does not interfere with their daily lives or require any special attention.



Dysmenorrhea is a widespread female problem which causes reduced quality of life, a need for medical treatment, and absence from school or work. A recent Canadian study found that 60% of menstruating women had primary dysmenorrhea with 51% reporting limitations of daily activities and 17% reporting absenteeism; 60% had moderate or severe pain.


However, for some women their monthly period is painful, problematic and in some cases disabling. It can interfere with their lives because of the pain and inconvenience caused. If you get menstrual cramps, you know how absolutely debilitating they can be. And most of women want to minimize our intake of pain medication.

Period pain is usually felt as painful muscle cramps in your lower tummy, which can sometimes spread to your back and thighs. Sometimes the pain comes in intense spasms, while at other times the pain may be dull but more constant.
