is it true that there is such a saying in Chinese folk that if girls suffer from dysmenorrhea before marriage, they will get better after marriage? Menstruation is a process that every girl will go through. Normally, girls come to their aunt every month. Most girls will have some pain during menstruation. Some people say that girls will get better after they get married with dysmenorrhea. Is there any scientific basis for this?
Some girls have dysmenorrhea
Dysmenorrhea is one of the common gynecological diseases
There are records about female dysmenorrhea in Huangdi Neijing, the classic of traditional Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine has paid attention to female dysmenorrhea for thousands of years. According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, there are two kinds of dysmenorrhea in women: one is the dysmenorrhea caused by the obstruction of Qi and blood, the other is the dysmenorrhea caused by the deficiency of liver and kidney, the weakness of body and the deficiency of Qi and blood.
The vast majority of girls with dysmenorrhea recover after marriage
Western medicine divides dysmenorrhea into primary dysmenorrhea and secondary dysmenorrhea. The former, also known as functional dysmenorrhea, refers to the absence of obvious organic lesions in the reproductive organs, which are more common in young women; the latter is more secondary to some organic lesions in the reproductive organs, such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, hysteromyoma, chronic pelvic inflammation, pelvic congestion, adhesion or stenosis of the cervix and mouth, etc.
"Most of the dysmenorrhea in young girls is primary dysmenorrhea", said Huang Jianling. From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, suffering from cold and raw, drinking ice water or ice drinks, raining during menstrual period, including cold, clotting and blood stasis caused by colds, can cause dysmenorrhea; the humid and hot weather in the south, eating hot and humid things, such as eating more hot food such as shrimp, crab, mango and litchi, can also cause qi stagnation and blood stasis, which can lead to qi stagnation and blood stasis Have dysmenorrhea; study and work too much pressure, depression, will also dysmenorrhea.
