Does anyone (who still gets their period every once in a while) ever get the most awful pain with it? I was sore and crampy yesterday (day 1) and then last night and most of this morning I feel like someone is trying to rip out my ovaries. It is one of the most painful things I've felt regarding my period...ever.

Wondering if this is normal, and if anyone knows WHY? I took pain medicine which is helping take the edge off.
