Why Do Periods Hurt?

Answer

Periods, also known as menstrual cramps, hurt due to contractions of the uterine wall when expelling menstrual blood. Contraction of the uterus is caused by substances occurring naturally in the body called prostaglandins. These pains can be relieved by having a hot bath, exercising, using a hot water bottle where it hurts or just taking painkillers.
