Have abdominal pain before and after periods. Had 2 C-sections. What could this be?

Hello, I have had pain in my lower mid abdominal area that migrates to my right side, I have had two c-setions children are 3 and 5 years old....the pain feels similar to what my c-setion post surgery felt like. This pain has been on going but not consistent for about three months now. I have had some constipation but have regular bowel movements and the pain happens before and after my period, but last for a long period of time. I do have regular periods and they are consistent. If I lay on my stomach I can feel swelling on my right side. I am not sure what this could be any suggestions?

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
As you describe there is pain in the lower abdomen, some times radiating to the right side. since 3 months. It is present before and after the period.
The causes could be dysmenorrhoea, due to infection. there may be some gynacological problem, surgical hernia, T.B.of iliocecal junction etc.
I advise you to consult a gynaecologist for diagnosis and treatment. You may need to have M.R.I. besides other routine tests for confirmation.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery, and thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
Best regards.
