Well, lower back pain is very common during periods. There is nothing wrong with you, so just relax. It is caused by the contractions in the uterus, which radiate through the web nerves within your pelvic region.

As the body contracts to rid itself of the uterine lining, it can sometimes press on blood vessels in the area, limiting or cutting off the supply of oxygen to the nearby muscles.

This pain is described as 'referred pain'.

Referred pain is a kind of pain that occur in the parts of body other than its actual source.

If you are just about to start your period, you will feel pain in your uterus as it might be contracting in preparation for the upcoming activity.
