I am 21 years old, and have been suffering from this for a couple years now. I've never been pregnant or had surgery. This happens to me a couple periods a year. The pain is so intense I have to stop whatever I am doing and dig my nails into something in order not to SCREAM in pain. It happens whenever I have a bowel movement during the first couple days of my period and when passing gas. I did not know this was so common. Has anyone found ways to cure this naturally? Someone said exercising and a good diet helps. I eat pretty well, has anyone found that more exercising stops this from happening. -sincerely, A fellow Woman who hates being one on more than one occasionView Thread
My period has been more than 3 weeks late before. Ive actually missed my period one month and had it the next. This is because I have problems with a lot of stress and anxiety. If you are under a lot of STRESS it can prevent you from having your period. Stress is actually a main factor in a lot of health issues. Are you taking birth control? When I first started birth control it through my cycle out of wack. After the first year or two my cycle went back to normal after taking birth control at precise times during the day. Also are you eating a healthy diet? Maintaining a good weight? People can sometimes STOP having their period if they are to under weight or malnourished. Your body will not give up that waste if it needs to use it. Its important to eat enough. Also if you are really worried go to a doctor and have them do some tests. But check your emotional and physical balances first and try to fix those problems and see if your period comes around next month. Hope that helps, (Really try to calm down and not worry so much, worrying isnt going to fix anything and actually may be stressing you out so much preventing your period. Take a deep breath and whatever happens happens and it will all work out . Dont think the worst cause it most likely isnt . )View Thread
