I am 15yrs old and having period trouble, cramps, separate hymen, Please help!

I am 15yrs old and having period trouble. When I first got my period (when I was 12) I just used pads, and I had pain but it wasn’t so bad. So one day comes along when I have to go swimming and I have my period,my mom gave me a tampon and told me to just stick it up there. I tried but I couldn’t, I assumed I was doing something wrong and gave up. My periods just kept getting more painful as the months passed, they now are at a steady pain. I have come up with a way to numb the pain but the first day is the worst I am literally curled up in fetal position in terrible pain,I take pain relievers and 80% dark chocolate,spinach,bananas, and blueberries as they are supposed to help. And they do eventually, after the first day its just sharp sporadic cramping and heavy bleeding. AND the blood is the worst, if I take a shower and stand in a towel for like 5 minutes there is blood trickling down my legs, and its ridiculous.
I am very active and eat healthily, I decided to try tampons out again because wearing a pad and running and dancing is the worst, but after watching several videos and trying several times the tampon would not go in, and my v looked different from the pictures, so I finally came across what is called a separate hymen, and after researching and looking down there I think I have it, but how can I be sure without going to a doctor? This is very personal to me and I don’t feel comfortable discussing this with any family members…yet. Do you think a separate hymen and period pain would go hand in hand? Is there any way to break the hymen yourself? (I am a virgin btw) Or do you have to have surgery? Also is it normal to still have cramps even after your period? Because I have cramps like 2 weeks before and after my period, they are not crippling or anything but it still hurts. No one else in my family has painful periods.. Please help!

hi
i understand that you are very uncomfortable sharing this with anyone in family. but in such cases self diagnosis is risky. atleast,you should consult a gynecologist once and get it diagnosed first.
if at all, u have seperate hymen,then you may get these symptoms. these go away with age. take antispasmodics. tearing the hymen should occur naturally and do not try home methods.
thanks

HI DEAR
CRAMPS ARE USUALLY ASSOCIATED IN EARLY YEARS OF MENARCHE. SEPARATE HYMEN ACTUALLY ,BY ITSELF HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THESE SYMPTOMS. THESE ARE HORMONE RELATED SYMPTOMS. AVOID DOING ANYTHING TO THE HYMEN AT HOME. MEDICAL CONSULTATION IS NECESSARY

hello there
period cramps are expected at your age. it doesnt require a family history to be positive. all depends on your hormones. may be a separate hymen may have aggravated the problems . some hymens are known to thin out and resolve on their own once u get sexually active. so do not attempt home remedies

If you have a sepatate hymen and your period pain is getting worse by time… This is because the blood is increasing the pressure over the hymen and it is hardly flowing out in periods ..this may cause u cramps before and after the period…
If the remedies you are doing is not helping you … Then you have to seek medical attention by a gynaecologist as you may need surgery…
