Dysmenorrhea: Sometimes a particularly painful menses can occur, sometimes a miscarriage occurs, some patients have endometriosis which is very painful. It would be a good idea to see your PCP or OB-Gyn specialist for an exam also to rule out any sexually transmitted disease infections. Try taking 2 aleve (naproxen) if not allergic. Heat helps, too. Take care.

Heavy menstruation: Some women experience more severe symptoms associated with monthly menstruation. Falling hormone levels trigger bleeding and shedding of the lining of the uterus, bloating, fatigue, cramping, breast tenderness, mood changes, headaches, etc, up to a week before actual menstruation( PMS), and then decline through the 4-7 days of actual menstruation. There are meds to reduce severity, see your OB
