Is it normal to have menstrual pain on the third day?

Menstrual pain usually occurs when the menstrual period comes off, but it can begin to occur even before menstruation arrives. As it usually lasts about 2-3 days, it is possible for a woman to have menstrual pain on the third day of menstruation.

However, the pain usually becomes more intense with the onset of menstruation (the first day) and gradually fades away. Therefore, if the woman has prolonged and constant pain, it is advisable to consult a specialist.
