Is it normal to have rectal pain in every menstrual cycle?

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Can p.O. P, or enterocele cause rectal pain to be worse and more constant during menstrual cycle? If pertinent, in add. Uterus is also retroverted.

Can p.O. P, or enterocele cause rectal pain to be worse and more constant during menstrual cycle? If pertinent, in add. Uterus is also retroverted.

Maybe.: Usually, pop and enteroceles are painless, but if you have a rectocele and tend towards constipation or harder stools at that time of the month, then there may be more pressure in your pelvis/rectum causing pain. The retroverted uterus is also pushing on the rectum and is lower in your pelvis (pop) which may make stool transit more difficult. What do you doctor think? Have you tried a pessary? ...Read more

I am having intense rectal pain during menses. Please help me telling the causes. Endometriosis?

I am having intense rectal pain during menses. Please help me telling the causes. Endometriosis?

Agree with above and: Our research that will be published soon shows two very accurate predictions of endometriosis. First, if you had bad periods (worse than peers or missed school)as a teenager, you have nearly 100% chance of endo at surgery. Second, testing for ovarian reserve with Clomid (clomiphene) challenge test: if abnormal 90% chance of endometriosis at surgery. The above could add to the accuracy of endo as diagnosis. ...Read more

Pregnancy/Normal: The first thing that needs to be ruled out if AT ALL possible is pregnancy. If it is a possibility do a home pregnancy test. This could be a pregnancy or a "chemical pregnancy". The other thing is that at 23 this is a common occurrence. If the flow was normal and this was a one time thing no worries. If your next period is abnormal this needs to be checked. Good luck and don't worry. ...Read more

I had lose my virginity like 2weeks ago. My menstrual cycle comes on the 1st or 2nd of every mnths. Did my menstrual cycle change? Is it normal?

If the test is negative and you still don't get a period you should see your physician. You may also want to discuss birth control options if you are not wanting to be pregnant. ...Read more

Periods vary.: Not all women have the typical 28-day cycle. Some are 21 days or shorter; others, like you, have quite extended cycles. So long as you are otherwise healthy, and your periods are not excessively heavy or painful, the length of time between them should not worry you. If you're trying to conceive (or avoid conception), simple urine tests (LH strips) can help determine your fertile period. ...Read more

How many days late on your menstrual cycle is normal?

How many days late on your menstrual cycle is normal?

Depends: Some women have a 28-day cycle and some have a 35-day cycle, so being 5 days late for each of those women as an absolute number is going to mean something different.
