hello,
As per the details , u have given,
u are having problem called SPASMODIC DYSMENORRHEA ..
its a common problem in teenage due to anovulatory cycles.. and hormonal imbalance...
the patient will experience a severe cramping pain , pain statrts just 2-3 days before the onset of menstration and continues upto 3 rd day or 5 th day..

i advise you the following test.
1. complete hemogram to rule any ANEMIA
2.bleeding time, clotting time, platelet count

TREATMENT :
1. USE OF COMBINED ORAL CONTRACEPTIVE PILLS FOR ATLEAST 3-6 MONTHS TO REDUCE PAIN AND BLOOD LOSE..THIS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE METHOD
2. USING MEFENAMIC ACID + DROTAVERINE COMBINATION PILLS during pain

i think the 1st method will be suitable for you becoz of severe pain and blood lose..

hope this will help u...
