  • Sharp Pain Right After Period Ends

    Hi,

    I’ve never had any problems with my period or menstrual cycle until about 3-4 months ago. I started getting sharp, sudden pain in the lower left pelvic area. This pain comes in waves and only occurs 3-4 days into my period and lasts 1-2 weeks. The pain on the first 1-2 days is so sharp I often cannot sleep. After that it’s mainly dull pain in the same area. My cycle is still regular, period bleeding is regular as well.

    Any help is appreciated.

  • Hey! I know this probably isn't what you want to hear, but I think you need to get checked out by an OB-GYN. This could be an ovarian cyst, a fibroid, or something else. It is important to know WHAT is causing the pain. If you were having this pain during ovulation, I would say that might be pretty normal as many people experience ovulation pain/cramping. But because this is right at the end of your period, it could be something like a uterine fibroid that you'd need to get checked out.
