First of all, you need to find a doctor you feel comfortable going to. You are having a health problem and if you cannot go to your doctor about it because they have made you afraid to bring up issues with them, then that is a problem. You may have endometriosis that is around your bladder and urethra; I have had some personal experience in that area and it is usually no problem urinating after menstruating. Please find a doctor you can go to. See a gynecologist also to investigate your problem - it needs attention if you are not urinating daily (that is a problem that needs immediate attention!).

That happens to me regularly during my cycles. Sometimes the bowel movement is very painful when I first start my period but then while I do not have my period, it goes away. I took this as something that just came with my period and nothing else. Maybe I am wrong though? I would be interested to find out what is happening if you end up going to the doctor. I haven't any issues with my tummy getting bigger though.

Without a physical exam, I don't think anyone will really be able to help, except with words of comfort, since a lot of us have been through gyne and doctor problems. You really should find another doctor, someone you can talk to and feel comfortable with. I don't know why you would be in so much pain with your bowel movements offhand, but I do know that the hormonal changes that come with our periods can cause diarrhea and/or constipation. If you are on other medication, or had any procedures or complications with your child's birth, those could also be factors. Get on the phone tomorrow and call a new doctor's office and set up an appointment, or set up an appointment with a gynecologist. You really need to be seen by someone that you can feel comfortable with. Good luck.
