Re: Do periods get worse as you get older?? I need some help
It's probably best that you see a gynecologist, and get in the habit of going for a yearly visit if you don't already.
Do periods get worse as you get older? Well, some will say yes, some will say no; it all depends on the individual.
Best thing for you to do is to go in for an exam and get checked out. If you're in that much pain every month, perhaps the doctor can diagnose why, but certainly nobody here can.
I'm 48 and have had two kids. Periods are never something I look forward to, and are definitely not pain free. I've found that if I take some ibuprofin and stay physically active, I'm not in that much pain at all. But that's just me.
