Side pain before period

Every month a week before my period I notice that I get a pain in my right side of my lower stomach. I am on birth control pills. Can anyone offer some advice? It goes away after I get my period. Thanks!

I had the same thing for about 6 months before I finally went to my OBGYN, he did an ultrasound 2 months ago and found numerous follicular cysts on both of my ovaries.  More on the right side though.  You can get cysts while on birth control by the way, b/c I have been on them for 6 years now.  But he is doing another ultrasound in late August to see if they are all still there.  I don't want to scare you but you should see your Gyno and see what the problem is.  I was told it could be from they cysts, endometriosis, or a bowel problem.  All I can do now is be patient.
