  • I don't know what answer the medical society would give, but I say if it isn't normal, then I need to go personally find out.

  • Yes, it is. I usually have the same. The two previous day of my period is hell. And when it actually starts I am fine. Don't worry. It can be from stress or when you have flu or cold and your body is a bit upset. Try to rest a bit. Hugs.

  • Yes, that is how I know i am getting it.

    Each person gets diffrent feelings when they are about to get it. Lately I know when I am gettiing it two days before, it takes time but if you pay attention to your body. You will get it.

  • Yes quite normal, and I'd have bad cramps for days thru my period. You get to know when your getting your period after a while, your body does the same abt every month. I use to have to put a heating pad on my stomach and just lay down for a few days when I was younger my cramps were so bad, I don't envy you at all.
