    - I've always had consistent time periods of when I can't pray. About 8 days and its bright red until maybe the sixth day. But this time, already it's different and only on the third day. It hurts alot, not sharp but dull aching. Could it be because I'm anemic or something? Im just worried because it's the first time it's happened

    It could be anything.*

    Sleep/stress are also factors to these pains.*

    I don't think it's anything serious for you to worry about.*

    Take painkillers and maybe see a Doctor, if you feel like it's completely unusual.*

      Keep a track of how many times you get the pain.

      If you go to the GP now, it is very likely they will say that the pain is normal and to take paracetamol. Getting it once is not really enough to determine what is causing it and again, it's unlikely they will refer you to a specialist or a scan. They might prescribe tablets.

      If it gives you comfort then of course you can go and see what they say.

      I suffer from pain, it is agonising and when I describe it to others they say it sounds like contraction pain.

      I avoid paracetamol and I had the luxury of taking days off from work so I used to lie down in bed and suffer until the pain would go away.

      You can use hot water bottle for the pain just to ease it a little. I have never tried it myself but thinking of getting one. They say light exercise. Impossible for me.

      I was prescribed mefanamic. It worked for a bit but eventually your body gets used to some medications. I only took it when I was very desperate and had to go to work or if I felt like I was dying (the pain was unbearable, I would cry to Allah, made me so helpless).

      I think those of us who have been through such physical pain will understand one another, but those who have not, will find it difficult to empathise.

      It led to feeling light headed, fainting and back pain. The main focus of pain was below the abdomen.*

      There's a condition called endometriosis that has similar symptoms I have described.

      Don't panic too much, just keep an eye and talk to your GP to feel at ease.

      I tend to avoid pain killers as they don't get to the root of the problem but you can take some if it's unbearable.

      Ask for a blood check and see if you are low on iron.

        Wow subhanallah :,( that's terrible. I shouldn't be complaining. I'm just tired of everything atm in my life so maybe it's stress even though I don't feel I am stressed? But i don't know my body might be and I just don't know it.

          When you don't sleep or eat well, it affects your period. It always happen to me in Ramadan.
          Don't worry sis.

            Sisters, in sha Allah, try taking about a tea spoon of black seed (nigella sativa) daily and be sure to read daily Adhkar and prescribed Dua's.

            Eat the seeds as they are or with honey, in a smoothie, or something your prefer. just ensure you take it daily.

            It would be good if sisters updated in a month or few to say if it worked/helped. It may help other sisters out too.

            Also, I think listening to Qur'an when you're in pain helps, in sha Allah. A calm/slow voice as opposed to fast.

            May Allah give sisters relief and protect from pain. Ameen.
