Pain is believed to be ischemic due to spasm of the arteries. Irregular timing of periods along with pain (primary dysmenorrhea is a common problem for most girls. Primary dysmenorrhea indicates that ovulation has occurred. Soon after menarche the cycle will be without ovulation so there may not be primary dysmenorrhea. Prevalence of dysmenorrhea has been shown to be less in lower social classes. Treatment will improve the quality of life.
