Pains As Strong As A Heart Attack Yet Schools Expect Students To Attend. Parents Protest!
As Painful As A Heart Attack
And while some women have had such bad pains they had ended up being hospitalized, there were still some who did not take it seriously. But now medical researchers have proven that this is not something that should be ignored and downplayed. John Guillebaud, a reproductive health professor at University College London had stated that menstrual cramps, or Dysmenorrhea as they are technically called, have been ruled to be as painful as having a heart attack.
Dad Sees A Problem
While there are some people in workplaces that understand how painful this time of the month can be to some, there are many that don’t and won’t authorize time off for their employees. And it seems that it can be the same in schools as well as one father of three would find out. Marcus Alleyne, from Cornwall, who is a father to 13-year-old Izzy was one to experience this problem first-hand. When his daughter was doubled over in pain and was unable to sleep as a result of her period pain, he and his wife made a decision to keep her home from school the next day as they did not feel it was right or appropriate to send her in. Though when he contacted the school, their response shocked him.
