Doctors Have Ruled That Menstural Cramps Are As Painful As Heart Attacks!

About time, I remember when I would miss school because my cramps were so severe… I would even gag or throw up because the cramps were terrible… A professor at UCL has reported patients describing period pain as ‘bad as having a heart attack’.

According to Elle Magazine:

Menstrual cramps, or Dysmenorrhea as it’s technically called, has finally been ruled as painful as having a heart attack. Professor of reproductive health at University College London, John Guillebaud, told Quartz that patients have described the cramping pain as ‘almost as bad as having a heart attack.’

Although we’re loathe to sound overjoyed that a dude finally acknowledged period pain can be a condition so debilitating its only comparison is a near death experience, we’ll take the improvement on the previous medical advice that recommended Ibuprofen as ‘good enough’ to prescribe.

In fact, ignoring women’s pain has been a concerning medical practise for, well, forever, with research showing that doctors generally take it less seriously then men’s. Hell, the word ‘hysterical’ stems from ‘hystericus’ meaning ‘of the womb’.
