OBJECTIVE: To evaluate a simple acupressure protocol in LIV3 and LI4 acupoints in women with primary dysmenorrhea. METHODS: This paper reports a randomized, single blinded clinical trial. 90 young women with dysmenorrhea were recruited to three groups to receive 20min acupressure every day in either LIV3 or LI4, or placebo points. Acupressure was timed five days before menstruation for three successive menstrual cycles. On menstruation, each participant completed the Wong Baker faces pain scale, and the quality of life short form -12 (QOL SF-12)...

Dysmenorrhea is highly prevalent and may increase women's risk for developing other chronic pain conditions. Although it is highly variable, symptom-based dysmenorrhea phenotypes have not been identified. The aims of the study were to identify symptom-based dysmenorrhea phenotypes and examine their relationships with demographic and clinical characteristics. In a cross-sectional study, 762 women with dysmenorrhea rated severity of 14 dysmenorrhea-related symptoms. Using latent class analysis, we identified three distinctive phenotypes...

Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome is an unusual congenital anomaly of the female genitourinary system, which is described as uterine didelphys with Obstructed Hemi-vagina and Ipsilateral Renal Anomaly (OHIRA), also known as OHVIRA syndrome. Typical symptoms are pelvic pain, tenderness, pelvic mass due to blood collection in the obstructed hemi-vagina and uterus, and dysmenorrhea that usually begins shortly after menarche. Clinical suspicion is very important for diagnosis and correct management avoids both short- and long-term complications...

Guizhi Fuling capsule (GFC), developed from the traditional Chinese prescription of Guizhi Fuling Wan, has been commonly used for the treatment of primary dysmenorrheal (PD). However, the intervention effective mechanism in vivo has not been well elucidated. In this study, an integrated plasma metabonomic strategy based on RP-UPLC-MS coupled with HILIC-UPLC-MS technique has been developed to investigate the global therapeutic effects and intervention mechanisms of Guizhi Fuling capsule (GFC) on dysmenorrhea rats induced by oxytocin...

BACKGROUND: Isthmocele is a characteristic semi-diverticular anomaly of the anterior isthmic wall of the uterus, located at the site of a previous cesarean delivery scar. The etiopathogenesis of isthmocele is still poorly understood, and several hypotheses have been proposed. Possible factors that could play a role in niche development include a very low incision through cervical tissue, an inadequate suturing technique during the closure of the uterine scar surgical interventions that increase adhesion formation or patient-related factors that impair wound healing, or increase inflammation or adhesion formation...

AIM: Cesarean scar syndrome (CSS) is characterized by increased risk of postmenstrual abnormal uterine bleeding, dysmenorrhea, and infertility, due to a post-cesarean scar defect known as an isthmocele. This study aimed to assess the impact of hysteroscopic surgery on isthmocele associated with CSS. METHODS: Eighteen patients with CSS were enrolled. Surgical methods included resection of the inferior edge and superficial cauterization of the isthmocele via hysteroscopic surgery...

Although non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can alleviate menstrual pain, about 18% of women with dysmenorrhea are unresponsive, leaving them and their physicians to pursue less well-studied strategies. The goal of this review is to provide a background for treating menstrual pain when first-line options fail. Research on menstrual pain and failure of similar drugs in the antiplatelet category has suggested potential mechanisms underlying non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug resistance. Based on these mechanisms, alternative options may be helpful for refractory cases...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to investigate the effect and safety of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy for relieving pain in women with primary dysmenorrhea (PD). METHODS: In this study, 134 participants with PD were randomly divided into the intervention group and the sham group, with 67 participants in each group. Participants in the intervention group received TENS, whereas those in the sham group received sham TENS. The primary outcome was measured by the Numeric Rating Scale (NRS)...

Bowel endometriosis is the most common extragenital manifestation of endometriosis. Clinical suspicion is of utmost importance for achieving its diagnosis. Management of this condition is, however, always challenging to the gynaecologist. We report a case of bowel endometriosis in which the patient presented with dyschezia and haematochezia prior to her menses for the past 2 years. A 44-year-old para two woman presented with worsening dysmenorrhea and dyspareunia. She also experienced dyschezia and haematochezia prior to her menses for the past 2 years...

Uterine adenomyosis is a common gynecologic disorder in women of reproductive age, characterized by the presence of ectopic endometrial glands and stroma within the myometrium. Dysmenorrhea, abnormal uterine bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, and deep dyspareunia are common symptoms of this pathological condition. However, adenomyosis is often an incidental finding in specimens obtained from hysterectomy or uterine biopsies. The recent evolution of diagnostic imaging techniques, such as transvaginal sonography, hysterosalpingography, and magnetic resonance imaging, has contributed to improving accuracy in the identification of this pathology...

Guizhi Fuling capsule (GFC), a prestigious traditional Chinese medicinal (TCM) prescription, is efficiently used to treat primary dysmenorrhea in the clinical practice. It's significant to explore the metabolic fate of multiple components in vivo which are responsible for the pharmacological effects but not fully investigated. A rapid and high-throughput method using ultra performance liquid chromatography/quadrupole time-of-flight tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC/Q-TOF-MS/MS) was established for systematic investigation on GFC, including GFC chemical compositions, and their absorption and metabolism in rat plasma, urine, uterus and brain after oral administration of GFC...

BACKGROUND: Primary dysmenorrhea (PD) is one of the most common health complaints all over the world, specifically among young females. Acupuncture has been employed to relieve the pain-based symptoms and to avoid the side effects of conventional medication, and wrist-ankle acupuncture (WAA) has confirmed analgesic efficacy for various types of pain. The aim of this study is to evaluate the immediate analgesia effect of WAA on PD of young females. METHODS/DESIGN: This study will carry out a randomized parallel controlled single-blind trial to observe the immediate analgesia effect of WAA in PD of young females...

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of laparoscopic treatment of women with severe defect of a Cesarean section (CS) scar and Cesarean scar syndrome. MATERIAL AND METHODS A prospective longitudinal study was conducted in 11 women who were treated for Cesarean scar syndrome. Ultrasound examinations were performed transvaginally 1 day before surgery and 6 months after laparoscopy in all women. Clinical data were registered 1 day before laparoscopy and 6 months after laparoscopy. RESULTS Of these 11 women, total dehiscence of the CS scar was present in 72...

REVIEW
David R Friend
Endometriosis and uterine fibroids (also known as uterine leiomyomas) are serious medical conditions affecting large numbers of women worldwide. Many women are asymptomatic but those with symptoms require medical intervention to relieve chronic pain and dysmenorrhea and to address infertility. Drug delivery has played a role in reducing some of the symptoms associated with endometriosis and uterine fibroids. Use of drug delivery systems for both conditions can roughly be divided into two categories: (1) existing systems designed for other indications such as contraception for symptomatic relief and (2) development of novel systems aimed at addressing some of the underlying biochemical changes associated with endometriosis and uterine fibroids such as oxidative stress, angiogenesis, and matrix degradation...
