Severe Menstrual Cramps, can it increase the risk of having other diseases?

Severe menstrual cramps may lead to other diseases as below:

Endometriosis: The endometrial lining tissues grow outside of the uterus area. This can also grow randomly in the stomach and on the ovaries. Some may cause adhesion inside. It may cause chocolate cyst in some cases.

Myoma uteri: It is a tumor that develops in the muscle tissue of the uterus and it enlarges in the uterus. It can also twist the endometrium depending on its size and its position that may press other organs.

Adenomyosis: It is the same type of endometriosis. Instead of growing randomly in the stomach area, it grows in the muscle tissue of the uterus. It enlarges the uterus and causes menstrual pain and severe bleeding.

Does it affect fertility? We would say yes. We recommend having pelvic examination and ultrasound to see if there are any cysts or any tumors. In case of chronic menstrual pain, the concern will be about stomach adhesions.

Therefore, if you have abnormal menstrual cramps, we would recommend seeing the doctor is the best way.
