Why do I get such bad period pains?

Period pain occurs when the muscular walls of our womb, also known as the uterus, start to contract and tighten. Now, the medical background behind period pain is when the blood vessels found within the lining of the womb and start to compress and push themselves against each other.

And this will cause a temporary loss of blood supply and also oxygen supply within the region of the room. Now, without oxygen being within the region of the room, this will then cause a chemical reaction of a hormone named prostaglandins to be released into the bloodstream, causing more pain as the womb sheds.

Now, there are medical conditions that can cause extreme period pain, such as adenomyosis, endometriosis, fibroids and much more.
