Vyathā (व्यथा) refers to “difficulties” (e.g., of the early days of pregnancy), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.6.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] Menā bore the characteristic signs of pregnancy which almost indicated the imminent rise in pleasure of her lord and served as the auspicious cause for the future bliss of the gods. [...] Whatever product of the mountain she wished to have in the course of her pregnancy she found brought to her. There was nothing which he, the lord of the mountain, could not accomplish in the heaven too. Surmounting the difficulties of the early days of pregnancy [i.e., dohada-vyathā], she grew more plump in her limbs. Menā then shone like a tender creeper putting forth more leaves and flowers. [...]”.
