More than half of menstruating women have pain for one to two days each month and look for dysmenorrhea treatment. Pain is typically relatively minor. However, the discomfort is so bad for other women that it prevents them from carrying out their regular activities for a few days each month.
In women of reproductive age, the prevalence of dysmenorrhea ranges from 16% to 91%, and 2%–29% of the women investigated experienced severe discomfort. According to research conducted in various nations, dysmenorrhea prevalence was estimated to range between 43% and 91% in schoolgirls.
