Periods are part of normal sexual health for women during their reproductive years. In addition to various social and religious stigmas during those “bad stains” days, period cramps (also called dysmenorrhea) accompany us to make the situation worse. Studies have showered numerous data regarding various pharmacological interventions (PIs) and non-pharmacological interventions (non-PIs). Non-PIs have been preferred mostly in cases where PIs are contraindicated. Fish oil supplements or omega-3 supplements are one of the safest non-PIs. The present study attempted to conduct a review of the existing literature to illustrate the aptness and potentiality of fish oil in easing period cramps.
