Is pelvic heaviness and cramps 5 days before a period a sign of period starting. I am 35 and never experienced this before. I normally get sore breasts, but this month nothing. I am not pregnant but I''m not sure if I can tell the difference anymore between bowel heaviness and period pains? I was at the gynae in Jan and all is normal, but he said he could feel my colon and it was very sore when he pressed on it, but as far as gynae parts go, that all is fine. What is wrong with me ?!!

It sounds like normal premenstrual symptoms.
