i have been with this problem for about a year now, and when i get on my period it seems to get worst cramps in my rib/lungs. i feel that when I'm not on my period when i breathe, my left lung seems to be "Sticking together" for about a few seconds, which causes pain. I need help.

I have the exact same symptoms! Did you find any answers?I also had a lung collapse last January. I had my daughter this January and didn't experience any problems while pregnant or nursing becaue I was not getting my period. Now the period is back so are the symptoms. Please email me if you have any answers.

i had the same thing it was a Catamenial pneomothorax, which is endometriosis of the lung/diaphragm. I had multiple surgeries but they really don't help.. only a hysterectomy or hormones shots will help or fix the issue
