Lower Abdominal/Pelvic Pain While Running

Hello!

I am a 17 year-old, 130 lb. female who has been running cross country for a year. I was recruited by a college to run cross country and I accepted. I have been training all summer, but a recent new road block has developed within the last 2 months, and it is keeping me from improving and completing my work-outs.

I get this terrible lower pelvic pain (left ovarian and uterine areas) roughly 10-15 minutes into a run. Intensity of the run doesn't seem to affect the severity of the pain. I do know that it only appears during the second half of my menstrual cycle (days 14-28 if a woman starts bleeding on day 1). It gets so bad that I have to stop running and sit down on the side of the road or trail and hug my knees for about 5 minutes. After the pain subsides, I can continue running without any problems.

I thought maybe it was an ovulation pain; that would explain pain during days 14-17, but not for days 18-28. Ovulation just doesn't last that long! I have tried a lot of things from a sports medicine perspective half-heartedly (changes in diet, hydration, stretching, etc). I am convinced that they won't work though; if this were a diet or hydration issue, I would've had these problems in the fall also. But I didn't.

Let's consider my past medical history: Maybe it's linked? I was diagnosed with granulosa cell ovarian cancer in April 2009. I lost my right ovary to it. I haven't had any follow-up therapy like chemo for the cancer because it was caught early. Doctors aren't overly concerned about my cancer for the time being.

So, needless to say, I am very confused. I read a similar thread on this site, and it gave a lot of ideas, but I wanted to see if anyone could come up with suggestions specific to my unique situation. I am glad, however, that I am not alone.

This pain needs to go away, and fast. I need to be able to run in a collegiate race without stopping and embarrassing myself. Thanks!

Pelvic pain while running

Your condition sounds just like what my 21 year old daughter is experiencing. Did you find out what is causing it?

Since buying the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars last year for $770 million Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , auto-parts billionaire Shahid Khan has been trying to revive one of the NFL's worst teams. He's brought in new coaches and players. He's upgraded team facilities and added fan amenities
  • Philadelphia Eagles Jersey
  • . And this fall, he's sending the Jags onto the field with a dramatic new look: a menacing logo, a striking two-tone helmet, and a completely redesigned jersey. "It's got to look cool," Khan says of the attire. "We want to signify this is a new direction, a fresh start. We need more fans."

    Overhauling uniforms as a way to amp up enthusiasm and merchandise sales is an increasingly popular strategy in the pro-sports world. In recent years, teams such as the NBA's Brooklyn Nets
  • San Diego Chargers Jersey
  • , MLB's Toronto Blue Jays, and the NFL's Seattle Seahawks have generated buzz with eye-catching reboots, and the pace of such face-lifts only seems to be increasing. "Redesigns have always been a part of sports
  • San Francisco 49ers Jersey
  • , but things are different now," says Paul Lukas, creator of Uni Watch, a popular blog that covers "athletics aesthetics." For one thing, there's more at stake: Annual merchandise revenue for the NFL, MLB, and NBA is at record levels, with the NFL alone raking in an estimated $9.5 billion in total revenue
  • St. Louis Rams Jersey
  • . And teams must now work harder than ever to attract fans' endlessly divided attention.

    For the Jaguars' redesign, Khan worked with Nike, which last year began making NFL uniforms as part of a reported $1.1 billion deal that lasts through 2016
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey
  • . (The company is also behind the less-bold 2013 uniform tweaks for the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings.) The goal was to create something flashy and different, but not too radical for either the team's supporters or the NFL, which has to approve all uniform-design changes (the league designs logos itself). "We err on the side of evolution, as opposed to revolution, which is where we have a healthy debate going with
  • Tennessee Titans Jersey
  • ," says Leo Kane, the NFL's senior vice president of consumer products. "We've encouraged them to push us."

    The helmet's unique design fades from matte black in front to shiny gold in the rear.
    Nike's Jags jersey is made out of
  • Washington Redskins Jersey
  • high-tech stretch material that hugs the torso for a sleek look but still offers the necessary range of motion.

    When a player interlaces his hands just the right way, the gloves create a single image, the team logo.
    After the Jaguars requested a new look in March 2012
  • 2015New Style Noble Fashion
  • , the NFL's marketing group and team officials got to work on a creative brief that would guide the process. "We explored, What is the essence of the brand?" says Kane. "What is the personality? What do fans think?" One of the new uniform's key elements is a military-style badge that's attached to the front of the new jersey—a nod to the 12% of Jacksonville's population with ties to the armed forces
  • 2015 Pro Bowl
  • . The helmet, a groundbreaking design with a matte-black finish in front that fades into shiny gold in back, is meant to evoke the hunting style of a big cat, which stalks its prey in the shadows before pouncing. And the new team logo features a less-goofy jaguar head than the original, introduced in 1995. "We heard 'The cat has an overbite' or 'It looks like a cartoon,'" says the Jags' Khan. "You listen. That is vital. Where is the threshold where NFL you hit some nerves and offend fans? You want to respect the history, even though it may be short."
