Hello...My menstrual period only lasts about 3-4 days and is normal cramping the first day which i'm very fortunate for but this month the cramps were severely painful, period only lasted 2 days, the second day wasn't much at all (to be honest didn't even have to use a tampon) and it's been 2 days since is over and i'm still cramping and sometimes is painful, a bit nauseous and feeling very dizzy. My boyfriend and I have been having unprotected sex for the past few months. Any ideas what this might be?

Hello Anon

Since you just had your period, pregnancy should not be an issue. You may have had an extra bad period this month due to a hormonal imbalance.
See how next month goes and re-evaluate. If these symptoms continue into the weekend, talk to your doctor. Hopefully you will feel better soon.
