Severe menstrual pain is not normal


Cramps are normal during menstruation. However, if you are experiencing excruciating pain, it could be a sign of endometriosis, a major reproductive disorder affecting young women. According to the Endometriosis Society of India, 2.5 crore women, suffer from this condition and yet, it is rarely spoken about and seldom understood. It often goes undetected for years because the abdominal pain associated with the condition is mistaken for menstrual cramps. Painful periods must not be ignored. Don't hesitate to seek help, consult a gynaecologist for timely diagnosis and treatment. #EndometriosisAwarenessMonth
