My daughter has unusual strong menstruation this month and today she has very strong belly pain in the middle of the belly. Is it possible to be something wrong?

Also how and where can we get appointment to gynecologist for a child.

She is having menstural cramps. Menstrual cramps occur very commonly in women. This condition is called dysmenorrhea. It is also a part of PMS, or Pre Menstrual Syndrome

They are particularly common in adolescents and teenagers. It is quite common at 12 years. They are nothing abnormal, this is a normal body response.

They are caused by the secretion of prostaglandin, which causes uterine contractions leading to pain.

They are a normal phenomenon.

Some steps you can ask her to take are:

Warm compresses on the stomach

Painkillers: OTC painkillers like Motrin/Advil will help greatly in this.

Lie flat on bed and with your legs raised, do gentle bicycling movements with them.

Kegel's exercises: Look up this link:

Calcium - 1000-1200mg per day.
Vit. E capsules-400 mg per day.
Primrose oil capsules.

These steps will help but if the pain persists, you should show her doctor. Her doctor can also prescribe oral contraceptive pills which will help with this symptom. Taking OCP regularly will enable her to have pain free periods.

You can show her GP for this. Her GP can refer her to a Gynae if needed. You can also consult any gynecologists', there is special gynaecologist for children.
