Patient : I am unsure what my medical issue is. I will explain what is going on and maybe you can give me some information or at least help me understand what is going on. I am a 42 year old woman who has had 2 children and had a tubal ligation at the age of 21. I have been having issues with having a period for 10 days at a time and having them twice a month accompanied by extremely painful cramps and back pain. I know that I am not going through menopause but I am stumped as to what might be the cause.
