Groin pain during period, done MRI. Could it be arthritis?

Hello Ive had this pain in my groin area ( where my thigh meets my hip) a few days before my period and during and a couple days after. This has been going on for a couple years now. The pain is very sharp and painful. Sometimes the pain is so severe that when i walk i feel like my hip moves out of place. Years ago i seen an ortho and had an mri done and all i was told is that it was arthritis . I have arthritis in other areas of my body and it doesnt compare to the groin pain. I was researching symptoms and found that it could be related to gyn. Please give me some insight on this matter. Thanks Kristina

From the symptoms it is likely your pain is due to conditions related to uterus, tubes,ovaries .
Some pelvic inflammation most probably is the reason
Since you are having arthritic pain also may be the simultaneous menstrual pain is aggravating the arthritic pain .
Best will be to get a gynecological check up and investigations done as suggested after clinical examination .
Hope you get relief from your pain
