Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

The type of pain you experience before your cycles , is normal , this is due to the hormonal changes which happen just before the cycles start , this is known as symptoms of "premenstrual syndrome".The pain may continue till first two days of cycle and then slowly subside , this is known as dysmennorhea.

An antispasmodic/analgesic will be of great help at this time , avoid coffee, tea and stress , also try yoga and meditation.

If the pain continues for more than 3 days, you may need to see a gynecologist for an examination and an ultrasound scan.

If your cycles are regular and no changes in flow , there is nothing much to worry
