Severe Cramping and Spotting - not pregnant
About every other month, about 3 - 4 days before my menstrual cycle begins I get an episode of severe lower abdominal cramping. Pain that makes you unknowingly shed tears, pain that you feel you cannot get away from but you cannot. I had an episode a few years ago where I bled heavily for a few hours but thought it was medicine related. On Friday I had the severe pain with bright red spotting. Not a lot of blood, just enough to show up on some tissue.
I am not pregnant (physically not possible), 32, married, no STDS, and have my tubes tied. Has anyone had this experience or have any input? I had a bad GYN experience (5 years ago and was medically fine) and have been trying to avoid it.
