You should check the time interval between your periods. With a 28 day cycle, the period is usually 3 days earlier each month. You may find that your cycle is 26 days, which is still quite normal. If you have abdominal pain, you could have a gynae problem, a bladder problem or a bowel problem. You would need o see your doctor for a full examination to determine the cause.
