Doctors Have Confirmed: Menstrual Cramps Are As Painful As Heart Attacks
Claire Miles - January 2, 2018

All girls know that menstrual cramps/period pain/ the absolute worst time of the month/whatever you would like to call it can be really terrible. It’s similar to being punched in the stomach over, and over again from all angles, inside and out.  Trying to explain this to those that don’t experience such pains is virtually impossible, aka men.  And since we don’t want to be viewed as dramatic and delicate, we often suffer and suck up the pain to avoid the comments of others.
 
Well, now ladies, we are in great luck. Professor John Guillebaud who researches reproductive health at University College London has found that menstrual cramps, also known as Dysmenorrhea is in fact just as painful as experiencing a heart attack.  With experts having compared it to a near death experience, men can now hopefully acknowledge how painful period pain can truly be.  With all things being said, it’s safe to say that Ibuprofen can be prescribed.
 
Hopefully with this new finding, doctors will start to take women’s pain more seriously.  Professor John, you are such a keeper.
