Hello,

In general, cramps from menstruation do not continue that long. She should be evaluated for other causes of stomach pain. For instance does she have a urinary tract infection? Does she have an Sexually transmitted disease?

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Lisa Baker
