pain in the buttocks during your period?

User Profile
Is it normal to have pain in the buttocks during your period? It hurts horribly when I stand for long periods of time but this pain always goes away on about the third day of my period and it only starts on the first day of my period.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the cause for the buttock pain during periods that you describe without examining you. The symptoms could be due to pelvic congestion, inflammation, endometriosis, nerve involvement due to congestion, dysmenorrhea, etc. Consider visiting your gynecologist for examination and further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Get started on appropriate treatment measures as indicated by examination findings and investigations results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
