Why are teenagers diagnosed with dysmenorrhea?

MagazineMay 1995 (Vol. 6 Issue 2)Why are teenagers diagnosed with dysmenorrhea?

I have never been diagnosed with endometriosis (WDDTY vol 5 no 10) but I've had severe dysmenorrhea for the past 10 years

Dear WDDTY:

I have never been diagnosed with endometriosis (WDDTY vol 5 no 10) but I've had severe dysmenorrhea for the past 10 years.

It began as severe and has diminished over time. I now experience very little, all due to a lot of self care diet, acupuncture, chiropractic, etc, and lots of rest when I bleed.

I work as a psychotherapist, but also teach menstrual health care to women, supporting women with endometriosis who are taking a very brave step of trying to avoid drugs.

What puzzles me is why women as young as 18 and 19 are now being diagnosed with it. Alexandra Pope, Randwick, New Australia......
