Dysmenorrhea – Dr Penny Wilson and Casey Parker

Dysmenorrhea is a very common problem in primary care, and can even turn up in the ED from time to time.

As a bloke GP mainly doing ED stuff, I rarely have to treat it beyond suggesting some OTC NSAIDs and a hot pack.

So I have teamed up with Dr Penny Wilson (@nomadicgp) who writes the Nomadic GP blog about her experiences as a roving rural GP trainee and now locum in all parts of the country.  I could particularly relate to this recent story where she failed to locate a cervix on speculum exam (though in her defence it wasn’t actually there! 😉 ).

Penny is a bit of a gun when it comes to ladies health – so I asked her about some really dumb stuff and I hope you can learn as much as I did.
