3 doctors agree

In brief: Dysmenorrhea

Pain with menses that is incapacitating, missing school or work, may be secumdary to a condition called endometriosis.
In the abscence of any physical findings i usually recommend bcp for at least 3 mo plus Naproxen if no improvement occurs then i move to recommend laparoscopy for the diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis. The loose stools are usually associated with IBS and will need antispamo.

Loose stools with menses may be due to high prostaglandins and may respond to naproxen or ibuprofen
