dose anyone have very painful periods, mine are reducing me to tears. the pain gets stronger when opening my bowels during my monthly. i also go through spells of bleeding between my periods or bleeding for two weeks, then off for two then back on. does any of this sound familiar to you? is this anything to do with lupus. before i was dx i had fertility problems and reacurrent loss, and now having these monthly problems. could there be a lupus link?
