Does that happen to anyone else, and if so, do you have any ideas about what hormones (or other causes?) might trigger it? I used to think it was tampon related back when I used them, but I still get it. It sort of feels like almost a pelvic floor bruise or, well I don't know quite how to describe it. Anyone?

I have had this same problem ever since my cycles returned after my second child. For me I would describe it as a very uncomfortable pressure. It is usally all during day 2 of my cycle. It helps if I sit down, so I find myself avoiding getting out of the house on that day.

I used to have this severely, a deep, pulsing ache around the vaginal opening, usually at the same time I had my worst cramps and peak blood flow. Now it happens sometimes but is less intense. I associated with the prostoglandins that also cause cramps, but I don't really know the cause.<br><br>
This is the first time I've heard anyone else mention it!

Yes, I get these pains too. I always considered it part of my menstrual cramping. I guess it's nice to know that I am, "normal."

Yes, I have this too and this is *exactly* how I would describe it. I first noticed it when I was a teen but not while I was on bcp throughout college. For the 4 years after I stopped the bcp's and before I conceived I didn't have it. It returned immediately post partum when I had this feeling for WEEKS. It was the most uncomfortable part of recovering from a vaginal birth. I didn't notice it again though until my cycles returned, and now it's pretty bad every month. I've recently had an evaluation with a RE (secondary infertility) and he suspects endometriosis. After reading all the literature he gave me I am wondering if the two are related. I'll ask when we have another visit.<br><br>
Interesting that so many of you have the same pain.

It's just because right before, during, and after your period your cervix is sensitive and so is the uterus (understandably).
