Disease/Condition Glossary

Contraception: It is a procedure that aims to prevent pregnancy. A woman can only get pregnant if a man sperm fertilizes her egg. Contraception aims to prevent this from happening by keeping egg and sperm apart by stopping egg production or not letting the uterus wall become thick. As a result, no fertilization takes place, so contraception is a safe method for family planning.

Dysmenorrhea: It is irregular and painful periods leading to abdominal pain, digestion problems, fainting, vomiting, nausea. Generally, a menstrual cycle is about 25-30 days. But in dysmenorrhea, this cycle may be short or prolonged, leading to excessive pain.
