Period Pains Can be “as Bad as Having a Heart Attack”

A professor of reproductive health at University College London has compared period pains to having a heart attack, claiming they need to be taken more seriously.

Expert John Guillebaud says more research should be done into finding treatments.

Director of gynecological pain at NorthShore University Frank Tu added that medical professionals seem to downplay symptoms and often tell the patients with period pains that the counter painkillers “should be good enough”.
