Painful periods, referred to as dysmenorrhea, are experienced by a large population of women during various points of their menstrual cycle. For so long, young girls and women believed they simply needed to suffer in silence, but in many cases, the pain, along with abnormal bleeding, can be an indication of something more going on. Many women experience chronic issues due to conditions like endometriosis, PCOS, fibroids and more. If you have questions, start with Dr. Sangeeta Senapati, Endoscopic Surgeon, Advanced Gynecologic Care at NorthShore. She will provide her expertise and useful information about the causes of painful periods, abnormal pain and bleeding, how conditions can be diagnosed and the available treatment options.
