Lower abdomen pain
Posted by: Gina

During my PMS cycle, I experience a very servere pain in my lower abdomen. The area is very hard and it lasts for a few hours, Tylonol helps suppress the pain, but doesn't completely relieve it. This pain occurs during the PMS cycle. This pain has been recurring for about the last 5 years, but the PAP smears nor the uterian cancer checks has shown no abnormalities. The pain is getting worse as time goes by. Could this just be attributed to the tightening of the uterus lining tightening up or is this just excessive cramping?

Thank you for your help

I have seen such syndromes clear up with use of progesterone. I am referring here to real human progesterone, the orthomolecular item, the same molecule your body makes, not that synthetic junk doctors tend to prescribe. You should find a doc familiar with natural human hormones. You can use the Find A Doctor button above and the Doctor Research service we offer. Do not try to self-diagnose or self-treat.

Thanks for your assistance. I am scheduling an appointment with my gynecologist for the earliest appointment. I will ask the doc's opinion of the progresterone.

He or she will probably have been traditionally trained and recommend a synthetic analog of progesterone. This is less effective and carries a cancer risk. Good luck.
