Make sure you're: Checked by your doctor, including thyroid level. If overweight, lose weight through diet and exercise. No way to tell from symptoms if you're infertile. That depends upon whether you get pregnant after sexual intercourse. Sounds like you make have obesity and insulin resistance,

Back pain in young: Young patients rarely need further evaluation for back pain as it is usually self-limiting. For mild symptoms, muscle pains are most common. Consider also disc herniation which may cause pain without sciatica. Stress fracture occurs in 5% of the population without any symptoms. If symptoms persist, then see your doc for a more specific evaluation. Try nsaids/tylenol, ice/heat, salonpas hot patches.

1 week ago got lower back pain with leg pain on one side, sometimes on both sides rarely. Don't know what this is from seemed to come with period pain?

Possibly sciatica: There are a number of possibilities, but among the most common cause is "sciatica". This is a condition in which a nerve becomes irritated in the back and can cause pain that runs down the leg. For reasons that we don't fully understand, sciatica can be worse during periods, this is possibly multi-factorial from the fluid retention, inflammation, and hormonal changes that can occur, may resolve.

Musculoskeletal: It is much more likely that your unilateral back pain has a musculoskeletal cause, such as degenerative disc, facet joint arthropathy, si joint pathology, herniated disc, pinched nerve, etc - rather than being related to menstruation. However, if your symptoms persist you should see a physician for evaluation.

Lower back pain 5 days before period. Is this a normal symptom?

Dysmenorrhea: Dysmenorrhea, or pain associated with menstrual cycles, tends to be multifactorial (i.e., many causes). Gynecological sources of pain may include endometriosis, fibroids, and premenstrual syndrome (pms). However, low back pain can arise from hormonal changes which, in turn, can affect the elastin in connective tissues of the spine itself. Consult with your gynecologist for a formal evaluation.

I've had 2 periods in one month, unprotected sex, and lower back pain but my boyfriend pulls out so could I be preg?

Pregnant?: Hello BrookeC56. With sperm present in the clear pre-ejaculatory fluid, pregnancy can occur even if your boyfriend withdrawals before actual ejaculation. The best protection from pregnancy or infection, is a condom and you on a contraceptive. Extra period/bleeding and back pain can be from a pregnancy--- normal, miscarrying, or etopic so an ASAP pregnancy test and doctor/ER visit is needed.

I'm still bleeding after my last period which was over two weeks ago. It was a dark brown in colour and is now a dark green with lower back pain?

GYN-now: This sounds like a GYN infection- green is worrisome in a vaginal discharge. You must be seen and examined. The discharge must be cultured and infection treated.
