Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
Normally a hernia would present with a protrusion.
It also should not necessarily worsen along the time of your periods.
If your periods were not previously this painful then you may need to consider visiting your doctor for an evaluation which would include a pelvic examination and imaging.
can be severe in some women.Treatment would normally entail the following: (1) the use of contraception
if there is no wish for pregnancy- most forms of contraception are associated with reduced period pain
and lighter periods.
(2) the use of anti inflammatory pain killers 3 to 4 days before the period is due. These would include medications such as ibuprofen
and celebrex among others. These reduce the secretion of prostagladins which are thought to contribute to the pain.
(3)exercise and the use of heat pad are also thought to be useful.
I hope this helps
