Iam 25 yrs old. Last september i got married. I always get stomach pain, fast heart beats, and some other body pain also at the time of mensus(period time). It happens before marriage and also continuing after marriage. I feel very irritating & worried much when some of friends are not facing this problem & they even use to play at times. But i will be in bed for atleast 2 days. I never give movements to my body...if it happens the pain & bleed will be high.
May i know how some people getting heavy pain(even feel to die at times) & how some are not getting pain?
Is due to any problem in the body condition?
Pls give me some suggestions to overcome this pain.

Thanks & Regards,

Pain that bad is NOT normal and you should see your doctor!

Are you on any type of birth control? That could be causing changes in your cycle.

Stomach-aches and the general feeling of malaise are two things I used to get with my period all the time. The fast heartbeat, what may be heart palpitations, is not normal, as far as I know, though. It may be that you are anxious, because of the anticipated pain, or it may be related to something much more serious.

Every woman's period is different; some are even lucky enough to escape PMS! It's natural for it's "side affects" to vary between women. I used to get cramps so bad that I could barely move - and I would spend at least one day in bed every month, due to my period. I went to see my OB GYN and she told me that it was not unheard of that my cramps were that severe, and that birth control might help me control the pain. She told me it did not necessarily mean there was anything wrong with me, and as the tests showed, I was fine. Birth control also helped me - I don't get cramps anymore (thankfully).

It seems to me tha you need to see a doctor as soon as you can. In the meantime, an over-the-counter painkiller, like Ibuprofen, might help with your stomach and body pains until you can be sure of what's going on.

Abdom pain
I suffered from right side abdom pain for quite some time, starts around period and the pain can last well over the period. It was recurring and I was in pain for about 2 weeks out of every month, sharp stabbing pain...and constant dull nagging pain. I was just in pain!!! I had the main tests done, to check for stones etc,blood & urine analysis, ovaries. They didn't find anything. I had thought prior to the tests it might be candida infection and took an oral table from pharmascist. Pain still occurred.Then i read an article that explained that some abdom pain can be as a result of diet. I did manage to find out that sugar was also correlating to the pain, although i had a diabetes test which was negative. In short cut out carbohydrates which i have read are really sugar! (which was news to me)..i don't drink alchohol anyway, but now have cut out potatoes, rice and pasta and cut down on bread, i rarely eat it. i have a popular wheet cereal for breakfast instead of toast. Basically get the Docs to do the main tests (ultrasound and blood and urine etc) to check nothing serious is occurring but if that doesn't turn up anything cut out carbohydrates, and eat protein... A book that you can get free online 'life without bread' has a bit in it which might help explain; I have lost the original doctors studies that pointed me in the direction of enzymes and diet, whereby he said diet was a common main factor.... hope this helps..
