Why does my bladder hurt for the first few days of every period?
It's been happening for a few months now and it's driving me mad. It's like a stinging feeling and hurts a bit to wee but not dramatically. After about the third day it disappears until next time. Any ideas?
I thought that AA, but why does it happen every time? Googled endometriosis but it says the main symptom is pelvic pain. I get period pains and this pain in my bladder, but how do youknow if it's endometriosis or not?
Thanks for the link gigglewitch. I do have painful periods but not massively so, just normal period pains. They used to be heavier and more painful before DD was born. Sex is painful at the start but pain goes away quickly. Always assumed that was due to bfing though. I'm usually always bloated and fatigued. Though the tiredness is pretty much par for the course with a sleepless toddler.
Do not do worrying. Or Googling for that matter, it is so bad for you health
just get an appointment with gp or prac nurse and they will see if it's something or nothing. Hopfully the latter!! Unless you had problems conceiving your dd, then you can probably bin the endo theory. hope some nice mners with Clever Stuff turn up in a minute
I get cystitis every time I have my period and it is exactly as you describe. Try taking a cranberry extract and drinking plenty of water. That usually improves mine but doesn't stop it from happening unfortunately.
