So basically, my periods up till now have been generally similar in terms of side effects and mood swings - it was always minimal and short lasting, having the type of cramps that dont even qualify for paracetamol.

Yesterday I started a new period but the side effects have been wilding. My mood swings were off the charts and ive been having breakdowns/crying over the smallest things every few hours for the last week. This morning my cramps were so bad that i barely got out of bed to change + shower and paracetamol only managed to dull the pain minimally. Everything else (heartburn/back pain/tiredness) is also absolutely wilding.

Is a change like this something to worry about or is it just a normal thing? I haven't been skipping periods or taking birth control either so its nothing to do with that.

(Sorry if this is like general knowledge Im just stupid)
