Summary of "Pain coping, pain acceptance and analgesic use as predictors of health-related quality of life among women with primary dysmenorrhea."

Primary dysmenorrhea causes menstrual pain that affects women's quality of life (QoL) and analgesics are only moderately effective. Pain coping and pain acceptance influence QoL among people affected by other chronic pain conditions, so we examined pain coping, pain acceptance and analgesic use as predictors of QoL among women with primary dysmenorrhea.
