Re: Menstrual Hip Pain
My periods are actually pretty light...3 days of real bleeding, with only one of them producing significant amounts. In my younger days, when my periods were heavier, I would get bad cramps the first day, but that was more like ovarian pain radiating into my back. This hip pain has seemed to replace that crampy pain. I'm scheduled for a pap test in early January, so I suppose I'll mention this to my GP then. As my name screen name implies, I tend to catastrophize every symptom I feel. My latest obsession is ovarian cancer; hence my worrying over period aches and pains.
