Although your menstrual experiences may be
unlike those of other women you know, your
symptoms may be perfectly normal.
But you should see a doctor if and when:
- Sudden, severe pelvic pain occurs with or without menstruation.
- Menstrual bleeding is much heavier than usual.
- Your periods occur more frequently than every 21 days.
- You have never experienced cramping, but now you do.
- You suspect an Intra Uterine Device (IUD) is causing the pain.
- Cramps fail to respond to home remedies and over-the-counter medications.
- Your period is accompanied by sudden high fever, diarrhea, or skin rash.
- You think you might be pregnant.
