Could the pain I am having be more then menstrual cramps. Always get them but never this bad. Feeling on lower right side more and in back. ?

Endometriosis: Pain during the period may be a sign of endometriosis especially if the period is very painful. Although endometriosis is not a life-threatening condition it can cause severe pelvic pain. But there are other reasons for increased pain during the period including infections and fibroids. I would go see a gynecologist in person to find out if there is anything that needs to be treated. ...Read more

I took Plan B one step about a week ago and had mild side effect. Now I started to have bad cramps like my menstrual cramps and a feeling like my flow was trying to come down. Is this normal?

I took Plan B one step about a week ago and had mild side effect. Now I started to have bad cramps like my menstrual cramps and a feeling like my flow was trying to come down. Is this normal?

Side effects vs STI: Some women notice that their periods are off in timing +/- 2 days after taking Plan B. It is often the next month's period that is heavier or longer, not the current one. In your case, I suspect you had unprotected sex (hence the need for Plan B) and may be experiencing pain from a pelvic infection/ STI. You need to see a physician for STI testing and treatment. ...Read more

Wow...you're special: To have not skipped a period in perhaps 35+ years of menstrual life is amazing! You're super normal! Now you are experiencing some not atypical perimenopausal symptoms. HOWEVER, the fact that the cramps have persisted all month is of some concern. Visit your doctor and consider an ultrasound examination of the pelvis for reassurance. ...Read more

Menstrual cramps no period it was due on the 9th. I haven't had a penis in me, i've been feeling sick guess it was stress i been dealing w/?

Menstrual cramps no period it was due on the 9th. I haven't had a penis in me, i've been feeling sick guess it was stress i been dealing w/?

Pregnant?: Just because you haven't had a penis inside you doesn't mean that you haven't been in contact with sperm sufficiently to be pregnant. A few things could cause nausea, cramping, and a missed period, but pregnancy is the most common. Stress would probably not give you menstrual cramping... Don't forget that that single drop of pre-ejaculate at the penis tip has the most sperm of all - stay away! ...Read more
