Menstrual cramps or dysmenorrhea is a term used to describe painful menstruation. It is not uncommon, and many females experience painful periods.
Menstrual cramps caused by an underlying medical condition are termed secondary dysmenorrhea. It usually presents later in life and affects older women aged 30 to 45.
The cramping usually starts one or two days before periods peaks 24 hours after the onset of menstruation and subsides in two to three days.

The hormones and chemicals released through orgasm relax the brain and make you happy, which will give you more confidence.
