Hello, I have been dealing with some pelvic pain between periods. Yesterday I got my period and noticed the color is unusual, dark red/orange.
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: My period cycle is usually 27-28 days, but I got this one on day 24. The pain is little now, but I do feel a bit of pelvic pressure
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: no, that is all

Hello, thank you. It seems like I urinate frequently but it’s only correlated with drinking lots of water. No abnormal discharge, period is usually 27-28 day cycle, and I’m not on any pill or contraceptive. I’m 38 and have had 3 kids.

Your symptoms can be caused by bladder infection commonly --sometimes urinary symptoms may not be present.

Kidney stone is another possibility--given the fact her pain is radiating to back and feels like bruise. Obstructing stone can cause such symptoms.

Uterus inflammation due to hormone changes, endometriosis, Fibroid, or bacterial infection are another possibility.

Ovarian cysts next cause-- especially a large one which may be rupturing.

Intestinal infection or colitis or diverticulitis - usually constipation or diarrhea also present.

You can try over the counter Naproxen 2 tabs twice daily to see any improvement.

If not, you will need urine analysis, pelvic ultrasound sooner than later.
