Primary or functional dysmenorrhea is the common menses cramps/pain that come recur and is not due to other diseases. Secondary dysmenorhea is due to problems with the reproductive system. Functional dysmenorrhea is usually diagnosed only after other investigations (e.g. ultrasound) do not find any abnormalities responsible for the pain.
