Hi Anon,

Discomfort and cramps felt during your period are normal to a degree. Excessive pain that is felt not only during but before and after can be related to dysmenorrhea, which is excessive pain during your cycle. Dysmenorrhea can be primary or secondary-- please read more on it here: https://www.empowher.com/condition/dysmenorrhea/definition

If you feel pain before, during, and after your period please consult your doctor as this may be dysmenorrhea and the cause should be diagnosed by your doctor.

Best Wishes,
