Laparoscopy Topic Guide
Laparoscopy: Laparoscopy is a less invasive form of surgery where surgeons make tiny incisions and insert tiny instruments and a camera into the incision to view internal organs and repair or remove tissue. Patients who undergo laparoscopic surgery may have quicker recovery times and experience less trauma to the body.
Menstrual Cramps Menstrual cramps are either classified as primary dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation) in which there is no anatomical cause for the pain. Secondary dysmenorrhea refers to menstrual cramps that occur as the result of another medical condition (for example, endometriosis, fibroids, infections, stress, or ovarian cysts). Home remedies for relief of menstrual cramps include OTC pain medications such as ibuprofen or naproxen. Heating pads laid over the pelvic area, massage, or exercise may also be beneficial in relieving the menstrual cramps. In some cases prescription medications may be necessary for the treatment of menstrual cramps.
