Yes, some women have very severe menstrual pain and describe it as unbearable. On these occasions, menstrual pain is so intense that it does not allow the woman to sleep or continue with her daily activities, as it does not subside with the usual anti-inflammatory drugs.

In case of unbearable period pain, a specialist should be consulted. The gynecologist will then be able to evaluate the causes and tell the woman what she can take.
