Why am I hurting so badly?

I started my period on friday and have had SEVERE cramps since. I do not know why I have never had cramps like this before! I am not pregnant and am not having a miscarriage. Is there a problem I could be having or can periods just get worse as you get older? I am losing my mind it hurts so bad. Do not know what to do!

  • As you age, your hormones will change and can cause changes in periods...length, flow, cramping. You should call the doc if the next one is the same just to rule out any issues.

  • my periods have gotten better as i've gotten older and at times fluctuate. nothing's wrong, unless your keeling over in pain...then you should seek some help
