SERIOUS PERIOD PAIN SOMEONE HELP!
Hi all, I really would like someone to help me, maybe even Gynae herself. I know it sounds really lame, but I cant afford a gynae onsultation this month, so can ANYONE maybe help?

I am 21 and started my period very young, around 12 / 13. I recently met the love of my life, and we have been happily together for just under 2 years without a single hiccup. We are madly in love and he really treats me well and with the utmost respect (well, tries to anyway ;-)

But almost from the time we started dating, every month my period seems to worsen, most recently, the other day I came on and the period pain was the worse I've ever had it! Like excrutiating.

I know some girls do have period pain bad but I've never really had it bad, really, every month it seems to get worse and worse.
My boyfriend and I do not sleep with each other but are semi-sexually active. (If that means anything)

Can you help me please, I dread my next period!!!

Thank you so much.
