This hurts so bad! Is it normal?

When it is getting close to my "time of the month", I get these awful, shooting pains several times a day that last only for a second or two but are so severe that they literally make me jump. This pain seems to come from my rectum, like someone is stabbing me there with a hot knife. I always forget to ask my dr about it. They usually increase in severity through my period and then stop when I am done with it. Is this normal? They seem to get worse each month!

  • ITS MOST LIKELY CAUSED BECAUSE YOU ARE BLOATED AND CAUSING PRESSURE ON YOUR RECTUM.
