Examples of medical conditions in this group:
- Menstrual cramping
- Premenstrual syndrome
- Chronic pelvic pain due to endometriosis
This category refers to the obstetrical and gynecological health of women. We include menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea), chronic pelvic pain (endometriosis), premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and premenstrual depression disorders (PMDS). Symptoms in this category vary from cramps to mood swings in in menopause. There is low grade evidence that support the use of cannabis for cramps, and endometriosis-associated symptoms such as pelvic pain, painful intercourse, and menstrual cramps (Tartaglia et al., 2015, Caruso et al., 2015, Cobellis et al., 2011, Lo Monte et al., 2013).
We recommend to start cannabis with your family physician’s support.
The evidence doesn’t support the use of cannabinoids in pregnancy due to possible detrimental effects to the fetus (Friedrich et al., 2016).
