Painful periods are a common reason patients come too see the gynecologist.
There are lots of causes from endometriosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids and infections to name a few. The usual first choice is Ibuprofen to block a chemical called prostaglandins which causes pain. Your doctor can help determine the cause and discuss treatment options.
