I experience very bad pain on left low side pelvis in the lead up to my period so basically from ovulation. This pain is severe on some of these days and I struggle to walk. But once my period actually starts I feel so much better, I have a day of moderate cramping but it's not dibilitating like the left sided pelvic pain I get. My pain is clearly made worse at certain points in my cycle but I'm just confused as to why its so bad before my period and actually having my period will bring on a relief of this terrible pain. It feels like everything is in spasm and I know my pelvic floor flares up but surely something is happening to make it flare like it does ??
Does anyone have a similar experience?? Pain being worse before period than actually on period? I've tried hormones but they just agrivate my bladder. I've had a sigmoidoscopy and that was clear..
