FAQs

Although menstrual cramps normally cause period pain in your stomach, it can also give you lower back pain.

 

This is because the muscle cramps around your womb can affect your back muscles as well as stomach muscles, especially during particularly heavy periods.

 

Lower back pain during your period can also be a symptom of a condition called endometriosis, so if you’re worried that this may be affecting you, speak to your doctor as soon as possible.

Yes, you can.

 

Ovulation tests are more accurate if your cycle is regular, but they can still work if your periods are irregular - it just means that you’ll have to test more frequently.

 

Most women will only need to test once a month, but if your periods are irregular, you should start testing a few days after your period and then move on to once per week.

When the wall of the womb tightens, you might experience pain.

 

During your period, this wall sheds with more force to help the womb shed the lining of blood.

 

When it tightens, it cuts off the blood and oxygen supply to your womb, which results in the tissues releasing chemicals to trigger pain.

 

During this, your body produces a chemical called prostaglandin, which encourages the womb to tighten further, increasing the amount of pain, also known as period pain.

If you dread the sharp, poking, cramp-like pain in your stomach each time your period comes knocking, you might be wondering the best ways to help ease it.

 

Taking over-the-counter pain medicine, like ibuprofen, can help to reduce bleeding and the severity of pain during your period.

 

Applying heat with something like a hot water bottle or a heating pad on your belly or lower back may relieve pain, in addition to reserving time to rest.
