Common Questions and Answers about Menstrual cramps gas

menstrual-cycle

Avatar_n_tn i've been having problems with gas for quite some time now, i'll have it all day like normal but it always gets bad at night time, its always the same repetitive and painful. sometimes it comes with horrible cramps, same or worst then menstrual, sometimes i feel like i can't control it. at first i thought it was because of my birth control but i don't think so, then i thought it was because what i ate but i proved that wrong i don't eat several hours before going to sleep.
Avatar_n_tn Shortly after this cramping, etc. started. The cramps feel like menstrual cramps that won't go away and the gas is constant. What could be causing this. Please help. sincerely, Danielle W.
6387609_tn?1393278331 How far along are you? At 30wks I went to dr & hospital for having really bad cramps & back pain and I ended up getting monitored all day & they said I was having uterine irritability (mini contractions) & they had to give me a preterm labor shot. They said it could've been brought on by dehydration or bacterial vaginosis (an infection I had at the time).
2026433_tn?1337654433 Cramps now are feeling more like gas pains /upset stomach, instead of menstrual that I felt before.
Avatar_f_tn Most of the time cramps are just your uterus expanding they feel like menstrual cramps. If they are worse than that though it can be a reaction to depression or medication.
Avatar_n_tn The strange thing is that since yesterday I've been feeling cramps...menstrual cramps. It seems so soon since I would be getting af til the 14th of November. Has anyone ever experienced this, it kind of already makes me give up on this cycle b/c I feel as if af is right around the corner. Just wanted to know if any of you've experienced this or have any insight on it. Thx.
Avatar_n_tn Hey ladies, Ok I am 18wks prego, and I am experiencing some really really really really bad menstrual like cramps. I never been a one to have cramps while on my cycle but its is very unbearable! What could it be? I have contacted my doctor, who hasn't called me back yet! Ladies could you help me... any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Avatar_f_tn You could be bloated for a number of reason gas foods you ate that cause gas. Without more info and symptoms would be hard to say. Good you were on antibiotics for UTI watch your symptoms and nthe meds should of worked for UTI do you have a followup appt w/ doctor?
Avatar_f_tn However the nausea passed quickly and then the cramping stopped fairly abruptly and I felt perfectly fine. The pain is exactly like menstrual cramps, which I've had since starting my period at age 13, except when on birth control pills, which I haven't been on for years. This pain doesn't coincide with my period, it has at various times occurred at all phases of my cycle. I have a tendency towards constipation but only when I'm not eating well.
Avatar_n_tn So when I was about 4-5 weeks pregnant I had two episodes of what felt like bad menstrual cramps. It scared me because that's about the time I found out I was pregnant. I did go the ER the night of my second episode and they did a transvaginal ultrasound and everything looked normal. Since then I have been to the doctor twice and had two other ultrasounds - the last one revealed a heartbeat! However I still had cramps -no bleeding.
Avatar_f_tn I thought it was bracton hicks but now im 100% convinced that its not. My entire stomach cramps up...not like menstrual cramps...like u have gas. Then i have these weird sharp shooting pains on my sides. This all started wen i took a "tylenol" from the store. I went in the store and asked for a packet of tylenol cuz i was sick...so he gave me a packet...but the onli thing was that it didnt say tylenol on it....it said pain relief.
Avatar_f_tn Like you mention, feels like menstrual cramps but sometimes stronger or sharper. At times I get sharp stabbing pains as well.
4165941_tn?1353992228 I think it depends on the person. My bh are super uncomfortable. They dont feel like menstrual cramps they feel like someone is squeezing my belly really tight..
Avatar_m_tn Gas is terrible painful at times, but combining menstrual cramping with gas is super painful! I've had it. I'd eat some bland foods (if that helps) and get a hot water bottle to ease the cramps.
Avatar_n_tn Not necessarily diarrhea, but not formed. I also have cramping similar to menstrual cramps most days of the week, with some days being much worse to the point of needing to lay down. I have constant dull pain in my lower left pelvis. My regular doctor said "IBS" the gyno said "I don't know". I do not have a period because I have the Mirena IUD, which also according to the ultrasound, has caused my uterine lining to be so thin that I will not actually bleed.
Avatar_f_tn I have had abnormal bleeding for years, since high school. I bled for about four years straight every single day in high school. I would soak my gym shorts whenever I did strenuous excercises. Now, I have low back pain. If I do something that causes my back to really start aching, I will start having pre menstrual cramps then full on bleeding with severe gas pain & bloating. I would have to take over 24000 ibuprofen tablets (200mg) in one day to get through & to slow down the bleeding.
Avatar_n_tn If I am sitting up in bed and have gas it is clearly coming from both ends. You know if you have regular gas you would at least have time to walk out of the room, but with this you don't. I want to hide from the world. Please help me and guide me as what to do next. I am totally at a loss.
Avatar_f_tn Do gas pains feel like menstrual cramps? I've been having a lot of them lately and I'm quite gassy! I know also that you'll have cramps at 14 weeks because the uterus is moving up but I just want to be sure.
Avatar_n_tn I have it much worse - like you, I get EXCESSIVE [lower intestinal] gas every single day. Unlike you, my gas is extremely painful. It's gotten to the point where I can no longer work out or ride my horse or do many of the things I love. Interesting (but comforting to know), like you and other have stated is that I have horrible gyn issues. In fact, one fameous doctor I've seen was CONVINCED based on several of my symptoms that I have endometriosis.
Avatar_f_tn I just assumed it was due to pms, but then I had my period, and then the problems persisted after. Along with the bloating I have had an excess amount of gas and I find myself burping a lot. One morning I woke up and it felt like a balloon had been blown up inside my stomach! Sometimes the pain is in the middle of my abdomen, then other times it is closer to my pelvis and feels more like menstrual cramps... Anyone else experience this? A little background info: I am 21 years old.
Avatar_n_tn It started out as a mild case of gastroenteritis (diarhhea and bad cramping in my general abdominal region and down my legs to my toes - similar to the feelings of menstrual cramps). I wasn't getting better so my college health services nurse suggested a lot of stool samples to do tests. C-Diff came back negative, as did many other things, but I am still sick. About 5 days ago, I started passing only mucus during some of my bowel movements. Other times, I would pass normal, soft stool.
935872_tn?1247150347 IF the cramps are regular and you have more than 5 in an hour get in to be seen. A few days ago I had what felt like really strong Menstrual or gas cramps. I'm almost 16w. And they started out strong and painful.. They went from 10 min to every 2 min within the first 20 minutes of them starting. I realized they were contractions and that it was because I hadn't had enough water so I drank 2 bottles of gatorade and they went away completely about 15min later.
Avatar_n_tn No sign of AF, only menstrual-type cramps, sore bbs at times, gas for 1-2 weeks and fatigue that began yesterday (Oct. 7). I am a D-cup so it's more difficult for me to tell if they are swollen at all. I have also had CF that's clear or slightly milky at times and seems to be more abundant than normal. I want to wait to take HPT until next week when I'll get more accurate result, but that's so hard!! I don't want to take one and get false neg.
Avatar_n_tn I don't think this is heartburn, this is a cramping not a burning feeling, I've never had heartburn. This is also NOT menstrual cramps or ovulation, I have much experience with THAT and know the difference.
Avatar_n_tn burpy feeling, stomach pain, heart racing, chest pain, gas, cramps in my sides, headaches, and they are ussaully moer than just discomfort, they are unbearable, i ussually can not take my mind off of them so that makes it worse. SPOOOKYGIRL: please dont let this rule your life....
1454858_tn?1306787978 I don't actually have a doctor yet... They are like mild menstrual cramps. off and on. I have some back pain, but not bad.
Avatar_n_tn IT HAS BEEN EXACTLY 7 DAYS SINCE I WAS SUPPOSE TO GET MY PERIOD, BUT NO PERIOD. I HAVE BEEN HAVING MENSTRUAL LIKE CRAMPS FREQUENTLY URINATING.. I DON'T REALLY HAVE ANY OTHER SYMPTOMS. I WAS TOLD THE "14 DAYS BEFORE YOUR EXPECTED PERIOD" IS WHEN YOU OVULATE...WELL YEAH I LOOKED AT THE CALENDER && UGH SUPRISING I HAD UNPROTECTED SEX ON THAT DAY. LATER I RESEARCHED THAT THAT WAS A MYTH. [14 DAYS THING] THE SITE THAT TOLD ME IT WAS A MYTH SAID...
Avatar_n_tn I got my three days ago and am still having bad cramps as well. I agree w/ the poster who said it is more like labor pains then menstrual cramps. ugghh I am so frustrated I tried going for a walk today and the contractions (for lack of a better term) got so bad I had to stop. And umm, brooklynn86 I had sex last night and I do believe it made my cramping/back pain worse today.?? I wouldn't recommend it until the cramping at least lessens.
Avatar_f_tn I'm still having cramps, but they're definitely mild. Still, when you feel cramps that FEEL like menstrual cramps, you kind of freak out. I'm trying to stay positive and not think about it, but it's hard. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR TEST LWITTE! I'll be praying for you this week! Let us know how it goes!
