Hello, Jessica.Pickett2012

Relax. Some women during their periods have higher sensitivity to pain, bloating, and diarrhea. It doesn't really mean Crohn's Disease condition. Simple checking blood in the stool can help with diagnosis.
My advice to rule out ovarian cysts with GYN- doctor
Check your diet to decrease possibility of the food sensitivity (no gluten, milk, sugar)
Drink a lot of fluid to avoid dehydration
Be careful with painkillers. Some of them may cause symptoms like those that you have

The history of your colitis shows that you have problems with digestion before.
Holistic Medicine what I practiced a long time, can help you even in case of Crohn's Disease or Policystic Ovarian Disease
I wish, you will be better
