Why do cramps hurt worse on some days of my period but are absent or barely noticeable on others? Days 1 & 3 usually more painful than days 2 & 4.

Prostaglandins: The pain of menstrual cramps is experienced due to a hormone called prostaglandins. These hormones work to stimulate the muscular contractions necessary for shedding the uterine lining. These hormones can cause powerful contractions when they cut the blood supply to the uterus, leading to a lack of oxygen to the related muscles. The pain however comes and goes throughout the cycle. ...Read more

PELVIC PAIN: Assuming you have no gastrointestinal symptoms, chronic diarrhea, etc. At your age, most likely related to an ovarian cyst, endometriosis, etc. Some patients can have "chronic appendicitis" but the pain is not constant. But recurrent.
Have to rule out a groin hernia or a hip problem.
A pelvic ultrasound, a good clinical exam and perhaps even a laparoscopy could help solve the issue. ...Read more

See a Doctor: It is unusual to have pain after the end of your period unless it is gas pains. Check your diet. Make sure you avoid foods that cause bloating and gas. Also, drink lots of water. If you are constipated, then take some laxative and change your diet to contain some extra fiber. If your pain persists, it is best to get checked by your doctor for infection or cyst etc. Take care and be well. ...Read more

osteoarthritis would be low likelihood
