Dysmenorrhea: Therapy and Mechanism

Dove Medical Press is pleased to invite you to submit your research to an upcoming Article Collection on "Dysmenorrhea: Therapy and Mechanism", organized by Guest Advisor Dr. Jie Yang (Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine) in the Journal of Pain Research.

Dysmenorrhea, commonly known as menstrual cramps, is a widespread gynecological disorder that affects a significant number of women worldwide. Despite its high prevalence, effective treatments and a clear understanding of the underlying mechanisms are still lacking. To address this gap in knowledge, we are inviting submissions related to dysmenorrhea for our upcoming Article Collection.

Specifically, we are interested in papers that cover the following topics:
1. Pathophysiology of Dysmenorrhea, including the role of prostaglandins, uterine contractions, and central nervous system sensitization. This topic is crucial in providing a comprehensive understanding of the pathogenesis of dysmenorrhea.
2. Pharmacological Interventions for Dysmenorrhea, such as NSAIDs, hormonal contraceptives, analgesics, and other medications. We are seeking articles that address the evidence, limitations, and side effects supporting the use of these interventions in the management of dysmenorrhea.
3. Non-Pharmacological Interventions for Dysmenorrhea, including exercise, acupuncture, heat therapy, and other alternative therapies. We welcome papers that discuss the evidence supporting the use of these interventions and their potential role in managing dysmenorrhea.
4. Potential Mechanisms for Dysmenorrhea, such as central and peripheral factors, uterine and ovarian blood supply, and other related mechanisms. We also encourage submissions that explore the potential mechanisms underlying therapies aimed at improving ovarian or uterine functions.
