Hello

Hormonal fluctuations can do this.

Endometriosis.

Fibroids.

Bowel problems.

This is a good reason to update your examination status with your doctor.

Diagnosis must be based on exam, and testing if needed.

Lab tests should include all routine labs and hormonal studies.

Exam needs to include pelvic exam.
