Abstract

Dysmenorrhea affects women during reproductive years and is a cause of frequent absenteeism. Conventionally dysmenorrhea has been treated by NSAIDS and oral contraceptives. They have a failure rate of >15% and are limited by side effects and may be contraindicated in others. People have used contemporary therapies for several years to relieve pain during menses and associated symptoms. These therapies include herbal therapy, heat, yoga, and physiotherapy. Each one of them is effective in relieving pain during menses and effects are almost comparable to NSAIDS and have fewer side effects. Further research is required to recommend them as first-line treatment in dysmenorrhea.
