Abstract

Primary dysmenorrhea is the most common gynecologic complaint among adolescents. Conventional treatments include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and hormonal contraceptives, but complementary and alternative medicine is a growing area of interest. As patients seek such treatments, pediatric nurse practitioners should be aware of these options to offer the best advice to patients.
