Causes Of Cramps And Abdominal Pain During The Period
Pain Can Also Radiate To Other Parts Of The Body
Many women experience muscle cramps with their periods. In some cases, the pain is in the lower back and legs. According to specialists in 10% of the cases, it can be momentarily disabling. It is caused by hormones instructing a growth and thickening of the uterine linen, as an anticipation of a possible pregnancy. Afterward, if there is no fertilization, the uterus contracts and expels the excess lining. In this process, the tissue surrounding the uterus produces chemicals that lead to a muscle contraction and are what causes the pain. In other cases, pain can radiate to other parts of the body.
