Abdominal pain during bowel movements

Hi.  I was wondering what would cause a person to have pain, cramping, and pressure in the lower abdomen during bowel movements?  Sometimes it can get so bad, that I cannot sit down, due to the intense pain and pressure.

  I have been having this problem for approximately 2 years now.  I am a 30 year old female, and have noticed it happens alot within the first few weeks after my menstrual cycle.  So therefore, I am not sure that it could be GI in nature or gynecological.  I did also have an ultrasound last year that was negative for any GYN problems.
  The only gastrointestinal disease that runs in my family, is Celiac disease.  My 2 year old was just diagnosed 3 months ago via biopsy.  My antigliadins were weakly positive, but I do not normally have GI symptoms like diarrhea, weight loss.  Only this occasional pain I feel during my BM.  Could these problems be due to undiagnosed gluten sensitivity, or likely something else?  Am I in the wrong forum?

Thank you for your time.
