Pain during period

have noticed that I have pains... aching pains, or pains that get worse when i flex my ab muscles, during my period. It's on either side or both sides of my pelvis, where my ovaries would be (i'm guessing).The only other time I have this is when I ovulate. When I ovulate, I have a few minutes of sharp pain. I'm wondering if this is normal, and everyone gets achy.. or if this is something I need to have checked out by a gyno. I don't exactly have a gyno at the moment, and I'm not sure my normal doc could do it.. And it's not cramps. Any advice? Is everyone achy on their period?

  • Not achy like that or at least not me. Id talk to your doc. he can probably refer you to a great gyno. You can never be too careful esp=ecially if you have ever had female problems in the past.
