Probably normal: Pelvic pain or discomfort is common and sometimes confusing. While this might be related to your uterus and cycle (e.g. Some women develop anatomical changes such as polyps and fibroids), it could also be as simple as a bladder or vaginal infection. Here is what i would recommend: 1. Check a pregnancy test if appropriate 2. Call your ob/gyn for appt. If persists good luck!
