See gynecologist: It seems that your uterus is getting sensitive as it changes shape and thickens prior to your period. It also makes sense that the bleeding is heavy with this. You should see your gynecologist for evaluation of this as it is very likely treatable. ...Read more

24 yrs old. Before most periods, I experience painful urination & urinary frequency/urgency. History of irregular periods. Never been sexually active.

Get a workup for bladder infection, and if this is negative, get an evaluation for overactive bladder. If you are a smoker, this may include a cystoscopy to look for bladder tumors, although rare. ...Read more

See a doctor: Would need far more info and an exam to begin to speculate, but pelvic pain of this nature may be due to ovarian cysts, tubal or ovarian infections, even appendicitis (and must be suspicious of this because of the nausea). There are other possibilities and would suggest you go and be seen. UK has a great health care system with well trained medical personnel. Good luck. ...Read more

Sounds like: You have hemorrhoids (internal). this is probably due to your constipation which fortunately appears only with your periods!! During that time I would suggest increased fluids and some increased fiber iun your diet. Have your GYN check for hemorrhoids next visit!
