Two days after I ended my last period I began having symptoms almost identical to period pains: mild abdominal cramps, pressure, and bloating, achey lower back, a bit more fatigued. The pain is usually mild discomfort/cramping with intermittant sharper pains. During the first two days, accompanied with this was a constant pressure headache. Bowel movement also changed slightly (a bit more difficult).

After a week of constant abdominal discomfort I went to my gyno. She prescribed medication for a mild yeast infection, but said that the infection should not cause pain and could find no other reason for the pain. She sent me to get an ultrasound, but they also found no signs of anything out of the ordinary.

I'm just concerned. Why do I feel like this? Is it possibly related to a food allergy? I've never been allergic to anything before. I'm 29. No children. Had an abortion 9 years ago. Any ideas? What should I ask to be screened for?

Thanks for your help.

  • Funny that you should post about this. I was just talking to my 16 year old daughter about her periods and she told me that she has pain after her period ends, and has had the exact same pain since she got her period 4 years ago. I just figured I would ask my doc about it next time I see her, but if you find out anything, please let me know. I will do the same. Kiera
