Has anyone noticed if your monthly cramps have gotten worse since you have gotten older? I am 36.. It used to be that I would get mild cramps lasting only a few seconds, just a day before I started..
Now They start a week before my period, last for minutes, are extremly sharp and painful, and even last a few days after my period ends..
Is it just me?

  • i never really had painful cramps, i have rarely had cramps at all. i wonder...are you less physically fit than you used to be? is your diet worse? as a teenager my mom was very underweight, and had cramps so bad she stayed home from school. i believe it may be a reflection of your overall health.
