I get this too. I feel it the most when I am sitting.

It's normal. Many women suffer from nothing, to some uncomfortable feelings, to a slight cramp, to full on painful cramps when they have their periods.

You can feel menstrual cramps in a lot of different places sometimes... in your lower belly, your hips, in your lower back and even in your buttocks or down your legs.

This is just your uterine contracting to allow the blood to leave your uterus.

The lining of your uterus releases special chemicals called "prostaglandins."

These substances can increase the intensity of the contractions, especially if the levels rise.

So basically, it's nothing to worry about. You can try taking some sort of pain reliever if it's unbearable.

If you are still worried, you can always ask your pharmacist or doctor for some information since I won't be able to provide much information on getting around the pain, since I got it too, until I went on birth control. It really helped to ease the cramp symptoms

I COULD NEVER UNDERSTAND Y MY THIGHS CRAMPRD INSTEAD OF THE TYPICAL STOMACH CRAMPS,,, I WENT AND CONSULTED WITH MY DOCTOR ABOUT THIS MATTER AND THEY RAN SUM  TEST AND CONCULED THAT THE REASON FOR MY THIGHS TO CRAMP WAS THAT  MY PROTEIN WAS LOW,, SUGGESTING THAT I ATE BANANAS DURING AND BEFOR MY PERIOD,, AND IT WORKED..

Wow! I am always cramping in my thighs. Today seemed unbearable so I decided to google it to see if anyone else experience this. I really hate the feeling and I don't understand why we hurt I'm this area. It began yesterday and my period came on today. I feel numbness in my feet and I have to lay down just to keep from feeling like I just ran a marathon. Is there any medicine that u can suggest to me that works for you?

hi,

I have the same problem for your pain relief please try nurofen express period pain liquid capsules. They really help my pain is really very severe i can barely walk but they do the magic, Also get on regular dose of complete nutrients walk down any pharmacy in the general health section they might have something like A-Z in boots. Plus stick to warm food during your periods like soups hot milk and nuts avoid oranges, lemons , yogurts and ice creams cold foods make the pain worse and foods having vitamin c say that tangy flavour sour ones  increase the flow.

Hope u feel better.

xx

I also get these pains ... so unbearable that I'm in tears. usually I take 2 ibuprofen and 2 paracetamols, but just been put on a beta blocker so the ibuprofen is out this month. I always get the pains the day my period starts, totally intense, but just that one day. I also thought I was the only one. I only googled today to see what other pain relief I could use this time .... might try the bananas. I'm 43 with one 20 year old ... the pains started about 5 years ago.

I seem to get the 'cramps' in just one leg on my outer thigh. It only started after I had my daughter 3 years ago and I have tried everything from pain killers to intake of extra fluid to multi-vitamins, but not bananas as of yet. Each month the pain seems to get worse and it starts the day before and worsens on the day I get my period and the by day 3 it seems to ease off so day 4 it's just a dull ache. I really thought I was just odd and put up with it, untill now when I googled it and I have found im not alone. I just hope that the bananas work !!!

I got this for the first time today. I normally have painful cramps in my stomach but for the first time in four years today the tops of the front of my thighs ached in the same way! Does anyone know what causes it?
