I started my period when i was around 14 and they always lasted around 7 days with the first couple of days having painful cramping. I went on the combined pill at around 15 and it shortened my periods and made them less painful. I'm 21 now and and still on the pill, over the recent years when i have the 7 day break my periods are just as painful as before and i've started to get a pain in my right hip one week before my 'period' or withdrawal bleed is due. It's also painful when i pass stool on the first couple of days, but my mum and sister both experience this and say its normal. But sometimes it's excruciating. I've told my doctor but he just seems to think its normal period pains...its the pain in my right hip that's worrying me the most, it's always around a week before and lasts around a day. Can anyone please advise?
