Brief Answer:
Ultrasound and internal examination are necessary

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcare magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns today.
What is your age? By saying periods are shorter I presume you mean number of days of bleeding during periods are short. If so it is normal. Do not worry about it.
When was your last period? Are you stressed? Has there been a change in your daily routine? Are the headaches result of not sleeping well or you are unable to sleep because of headaches?
The common reasons for pain in lower abdomen are ovarian cyst, renal stone and pelvic infection. Presence of vaginal discharge associated with itching or smell suggests infection. Do consult your doctor for internal examination and ultrasound of uterus and ovaries.
I hope this helps. If you have further queries, do write to me. I will be happy to answer.
