Menstruation abnormalities in females

In most girls and women, menstruation is a perfectly normal, physiological process. They suffer no discomfort of whatsoever from it. No pains, no headache, no irritability, they have no admonition of its onset until they feel the blood oozing or trickling out. But the majority of girls and women have some unpleasant symptoms. Such as a headache for a day or two, some complain of a dragging down sensation, some of them are irritable, feel depressed or quarrelsome, some have no appetite, no ambition, no desire for work while still, some others have such severe pains and cramps that they are obliged to go to bed for a day or two or call in for medical help.
When the menstruation is very profuse, resembling more of a hemorrhage than normal menstruation, it is called menorrhagia. If the hemorrhage from the uterus occurs out of the regular menstrual periods, it is called metrorrhagia, when the menses are skipped, or when they are so scanty that you can hardly notice any blood is known as amenorrhea.
In some few rare cases, the menstruation instead of coming normally from the uterus comes from some other part of the body, for instance, the nose. Some women have a hemorrhage from the nose every month. While in some, a bloody discharge may come from the breasts, but such cases are rare and are mere curiosities.
Dysmenorrhea is a kind of menstruation which are accompanied by pains and cramps. This affliction happens to many women. Dysmenorrhea means painful and difficult menstruation. A slight pain or at least a feeling of discomfort is present in most cases of menstruation. But in many cases, the pain is so severe, so excruciating, that the girl or woman is incapacitated for any work, and must go to bed for a day or two. In some cases, the pain is so severe as to necessitate the use of morphine, and it is a very bad thing to have to be given morphine every three or four weeks, every endeavor should be made to find out the cause of the trouble and to remove it.
Many cases of dysmenorrhea are of nervous origin, the cause resides in the central nervous system, and not in the genital organs themselves. So it is advisable not to undertake any local treatment unless a competent physician has made a thorough examination and has decided that local treatment is advisable.
