Sometimes, yes: As long as this is a transient, as opposed to recurrent, occurrence. This can especially become an issue with ocp (oral contraceptive pill) transitioning. The pain is mainly due to release of certain hormones (e.g. Prostaglandins) as the lining of the uterus is shedding. Usually, medications like Motrin, Advil (NSAIDs: non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are helpful for such symptoms.
