Do you have a signal telling you when you are about to go on your MONTHLY CYCLE?

With me...exactly a week and a half-2 weeks before my perios ACTUALLY starts, I get a really bad pain in my BUTT and my I have to lay on my back for exactly 25 minutes, and then the pain goes away. That's how I know, I'm going on my period in a week- 2 weeks. It happened after I had my daughter.

Anyone else, have signals or pains that come BEFORE there period starts? Or is it just me?

  • skin starts to crawl. I can't stand for anyone to touch me or be to close. It will last for a while and them subside a couple of days after I start.

  • Not really, except that I'm really hungry. I usually can pinpoint the exact day (give or take 1 day). I'm pretty regular to start every 28 days.
