Primary dysmenorrhea (PD) is widespread in women of childbearing age and brings troubles to patients' lives. Modern medicine believes that primary dysmenorrhea is closely related to blood circulation disorders caused by factors such as an imbalance of prostaglandin levels and tilted uterus. Adjusting prostaglandin level by oral non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and contraceptives can achieve the purpose of alleviating pain symptoms, which is effective but effective In many adverse reactions, the long-term effect is not ideal. The theory of traditional Chinese medicine(TCM)in the treatment of primary dysmenorrhea is one and the methods are diverse. A large number of literature have proved that the external treatment of TCM such as acupuncture, massage and acupoint application has achieved satisfactory curative effect in the treatment of PD, with less side effects and a low recurrence rate. External treatment of TCM can help alleviate primary dysmenorrhea and enrich the treatment methods of primary dysmenorrhea. It has unique advantages and is worth further discussion and research.
