Hip joint pain during period

Does anyone else get bad hip joint pain during their period? It's like right in the joint and is causing me to limp a bit. It's the first day of my period so always the worst day but seems to ease off as the days go on but this has happened for at least the last 2/3 months, maybe more. Also had to stop having sex last week due to me starting to bleed when I wasn't due on. It wasn't much but I was bloated afterwards for a good few days at least. I saw a gynae last year due to bleeding after sex but she said there was nothing to be worried about (she did an internal etc). Just a bit fed up now. I've got a number of auto immune issues and just wondering if it's linked to inflammation? I've had erosion of the cervix before and needed it quarterized so that's what I thought the issue was last year.

I get pain in my left hip the week before my period. No idea why!

Same here, always bad enough that I tell myself to make a Doctors appointment and finally get it checked out, but then once my period finishes the pain subsides.

I get a lot of joint pain and I know it's due to hormones as am still breastfeeding dc3, so it may be something to do with the changes in hormone levels through the cycle?

Have had a quick Google of joint pain during periods and there seems to be enough of a link. (And there was mention of auto immune issues too so might be worth you having a more specific search) .
