I get constipated when I get my period and OH MY GOSH it hurts so bad to have a bm, not only do I have my period cramps but then when Im trying to have a bm I also get this other crampy, sharp feeling. I sometimes get the crampy, sharp feeling when urinating also. I hope this helps and Good Luck!
When you are constipated, because the two are next to eachother its VERY possible that your bowl is pushing on your cervix, which is a lot more painful during menstration because it dialates........ Plus your stomac muscles are already all crampy in the first place~
I am quite capable of distinguishing between bowel cramps and mentrual cramps. This is not what I am getting at. I get sharp pains ONLY during mentruation throughout my entire pelvis when I am having a bowel movement. I am not constipated nor do I experience diarrhea...just sharp pains. I originally wondered if anyone had any answers or if it was totally normal. I don't remember always having these pains while menstruating
Hi again everyone! I just wanted to let all of you who replied to this post a while back that it turns out that I have a 3cm ovarian cyst! They came to this conclusion by ultrasound. If there is anything else found by the specialist who reads the ultrasound results, I will write again!
