Hi, so a few days prior to starting my period I experienced pelvic pain on the lower right side. It felt mainly like a tightness or pressure and sometimes like a knotting pain.
I also felt the same feeling (at random) on the left side and other parts of my body that don't carry ovaries.
Also my flow is much heavier than usual and very black. I'm on my third day and all of this abnormal for me. I usually don't ever experience pelvic pains before my period, I have a regular flow and the blood is almost always bright red except for clotting.
Also I usually experience pain on the first day of my period and this time I experienced for two days and painkillers didn't do much to soften the pain. Usually I take two and I'm good for the rest of the week. This time I had to take a total of 6 (within a 2-day period).
Should I be concerned at all? Usually my period symptoms are always the same but this time it's full of changes.
