is this the right upper or lower abdomen?

Dr. David :

usually pain before your period is from your ovaries.

and this is in the lower abdomen.

Dr. David :

that sounds like ovarian cramps prior to your period.

Dr. David :

you can always see a gyn doctor and get a gyn exam

Dr. David :

and ultrasound of your pelvis to check your ovaries.

Dr. David :

but it sounds like this is dysmenorrhea pain or period pain.

Dr. David :

does this make sense?

Dr. David :

Customer: But I'm in 3rd day of cycle do u think it still is from overies. Yes thank you
Dr. David :

yes, most likely from your ovaries.

Dr. David :

even if the 3rd day of your period.

Dr. David :

if this pain continues, you might benefit from going on birth control pills

to help regulate your periods.

Dr. David :

are you on birth control pills now?

Customer: Not at minute, am trying for baby
Dr. David :

I see.

Dr. David :

well, good luck with trying to conceive.

you can also try NSAIDs like ibuprofen to see if that helps decrease the cramp pains.
