Menstrual cramps are dull, throbbing or cramping pains in the lower abdomen before or during the menstrual period. For some women, the discomfort is merely annoying. For others, it can be severe enough to interfere with everyday activities for a few days every month. Menstrual cramps tend to be less intense with age or after the first child. See a doctor if menstrual cramps interfere with your daily life.
