Dear reethu:

Please don't get tensed & don't panic. It's good to be alert. I can understand your state of mind when your mom is also not well. Be strong & positive. Let's see what doctors on this forum have to say.

Take care




From what you have described, there does not seem to be anything to worry about. This is a standard symptom in Pre Menstrual Syndrome. For most women, this pain lasts for 4 to 5 days prior to periods and then goes away and most women will have PMS at some point of time in their lives. Pain as such is not an indicator on anything major. The main concern is a palpable lump. If there is no lump that you can feel, you need not worry. Please do not let any thoughts of cancer enter your mind.

I suggest that you can take a couple of pain killers for a while if pain is disturbing you. Watch it over the next cycle. If the pain still persists, or it increases, then it would be advisable to consult your doctor. They might prescribe some forms of vitamins or GLA and such things which do help in Pre menstrual syndromes


This seems to be due to PMS. Taking Vit B1 has been thought to lessen the pain.
