Still undecided whether I am perimenopausal but lately the first two days of my period are horrible. It's like the world is coming out of me, so heavy, pulling down feeling down below, aching fanjo. But also if I need a poo during that time it will be like labour pains in my bum. (Sorry!)
Pay hormones are very obvious now and although I'm only 38 my mum went through it early 40s so im a not ruling it out. Any advice welcome xx

Go to your GP and ask for a gynaecologist referral. Changes to menstrual cycle should always be investigated (there are several possible causes, and therefore different ways to treat it).

Some possibilities are endometriosis, adenomyosis and fibroids.
