Patient : I'm 24 and generally healthy. I have regular periods, but 1 week before getting my period if I have an orgasm I will have intense pain in my lower abdominal area. So bad I don't know if I want to vomit or go sit on the toilet. It starts mild then rapidly intensifies then peaks for maybe 3 minutes then slowly eases off. I have not had children but a told it sounds like a contraction. When this happens I can see swelling in that area and it goes hard, like my muscles are all tense.. Any ideas? Is this normal ?
