Period pains one week before period.....Need some help/advice

Have been TTC no.2 for nearly a year and it's really getting me down. Anyway, I know I'm ovulating but I was wondering about something else. The cramps for my period start about a week before I actually get it, is this pretty normal or could it be indicative of a problem? (which maybe could be a reason why I'm not getting preg - she says desperately!)

katierocket have you posted on the conception thread there are some incredibly knowledgeable people there.
If I was you I would be at my gp's asking for a referral.

yes I have chuffed; TBH I try to avoid it a bit as it can make me a bit obessive IFYKWIM. GPs have confirmed I've oving but maybe I need to go back now to rule out anything else.
Just sure I never used to have 'period pains' this far in advance of period

put this post itself on the conception area rather than joining the ttc threads.
I only know the basics myself but there are people on there who have had lots of tests etc who might be able to help.
personally I'm having accupuncture in the hope it'll help.

Maybe not relevant as i do have gynae problems but my surgeon has told me to tak anti inflammatories the week before my period starts three times a day to stop the uterus becoming inflamed and causing massisve amounts of pain caused by Emdometriosis.

I am not saying you have this but thought myabye the anti inflammatories may help.

I'm ttc too but am having IVF!

Does anyone know the effect of prostaglandins post-ovulation and if the pain is anything to worry about or will effect trying to conceive?
