Monthly Cylcle

Every month a few days before my cycle I get a tightness in the lower abdomen area. It doesn't hurt just tight and if I take a Midol it goes away. I would like an explanation of why it is maybe? This has been going on for a few months.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question.  Most women will experience Bloating and inflammation before their period.  This may be what can be causing the feeling of tightness before your cycle.  But, if it does continues.  You might need to see your doctor for imaging test.  Other conditions can cause these symptoms. 

Hope this information was helpful?
