Patient: I have just started doing foreplay with my boyfriend. My menstrual cramps have gotten worst since then. This has not happened before. Is there a reason for this? Should I get it checked? I have never been sexually active. I havn’t been in relationship for 5 years. My boyfriend and I have been going out for 6 months now. The cramps started to get worst about 3-4 months ago. There has been an increase in stress and anxiety in my life during the past few weeks because of work.
Symptoms: Severe pain, sometimes headaches
