    Well, I think it may be wise to decide if it is due to a pelvic pathology or not. To do so, a very thorough history and pelvic exam must be done. So, before this question can be answered, medical pathology must be first ruled out.

    Hi Ewagner,
    many thanks for your prompt reply but I am interested on the argument for a school search, so if you can say me where I can find
    some abstract about that, I shall appreciate it very much.
    Again thancks

    Annalisa -

    You may not realize that Osteopathy is different in the US than in most of the rest of world, where it focuses more on manipulation. If you are questioning whether the US Osteopathic method of OMM would help in treating idiopathic dysmennorhea (DUB) I might suggest that you do a literature search using MedLine or some other medical search engine for that information.
