 Reliable pain and spasm relief

Painful sensations during periods are a significant issue for women of all ages. These painful sensations worsen overall well-being, impact the quality of life, and often lead women to limit their physical activities. Dysmenorrhea is a menstrual cycle disorder characterized by severe cramping or throbbing pain in the lower abdomen and pelvic region, caused by uterine spasms. It is the most common gynecological pathology affecting 30-60% of women of reproductive age.

Dysmenorrhea is classified into primary and secondary based on its causes. The distinction between secondary and primary dysmenorrhea lies in the fact that secondary dysmenorrhea occurs in women with gynecological disorders and chronic inflammatory processes of the uterus and appendages. Additionally, factors contributing to dysmenorrhea include hereditary predisposition and adhesions in the pelvic organs.

The development of dysmenorrhea is believed to involve dysfunction of the neuroendocrine system, leading to disruptions in the synthesis of estrogens, progesterone, neurotransmitters, and other biologically active compounds. Neurohormonal activation, in turn, triggers vascular spasms in the myometrium, disruption of uterine blood flow, stimulation of pain and inflammation mediators, and smooth muscle spasm.

Pain can accompany every menstrual period or occur only during specific menstrual cycles. Painful sensations can begin even before menstruation starts and may last from several hours to 1-2 days, and sometimes persist throughout the entire menstrual period. Vegetative-vascular manifestations, which include headache, nausea, dizziness, tachycardia, swelling, increased sweating, frequent urination, and others, often accompany the pain syndrome. Additionally, there may be psycho-emotional disorders (irritability, drowsiness or insomnia, appetite disturbances, sensitivity to odors, depression), as well as metabolic and endocrine disorders. In some cases, dysmenorrhea symptoms have a mild course and do not require additional assistance. However, at times, they can become unbearable, disrupting the usual rhythm of life and rendering women incapable of work.

In cases of pronounced symptoms, various methods are employed to alleviate a woman's discomfort, including reflexotherapy, physiotherapy, and the use of sedatives, vitamins, hormonal agents, analgesics, and antispasmodics.

A potent combination for managing dysmenorrhea can be the fixed combination of Paracetamol and Dicyclomine hydrochloride. Paracetamol provides rapid pain relief, while Dicyclomine hydrochloride has a powerful antispasmodic effect.
