Menstrual cramps gas

Common Questions and Answers about Menstrual cramps gas

menstrual-cycle

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.
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.
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).
Cramps now are feeling more like gas pains /upset stomach, instead of menstrual that I felt before.
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.
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!
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?
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.
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.
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..
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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....
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.
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!
They may also prescribe a muscle relaxant, which can decrease cramping. The sharp pains are quite possibly very bad cramps. Cramps happen when the uterus contracts in order to push the blood out into the vaginal canal. The uterus has a whole muscle layer in order to do that. More bleeding usually means more pain. I get those sharp pains and can't walk during them. When those cramps are very bad, I sometimes get hot, sweaty, and nauseous-- and sometimes vomit.
I have been researching all over the web about heart palpitations and menstrual cycle as I thought I was going insane. I'm 25 years old and I started getting palpitations of November 2011, I was on birth control pills during that time and stopped it after I got my panic attack due to hormones I was getting mad palpitations, shortness of breath, I felt crazy. My mom works at the lab and drew my blood and everything was normal that gave me some sense of relief.
I am about 7 and a half weeks pregnant and since before I found out I was pregnant I've had mild cramping. They felt like menstrual cramps. From everything I've read and been told this can be normal in early pregnancy so i wasn't too worried, until this past monday. All that afternoon my cramps were slightly worse, not painful at all but rather uncomfortable. I felt like i maybe had really bad gas or bloating.
I have what starts out as mid to low back cramping and pain which is usually accompanied by what feels like menstrual cramps ( although I have not had a normal full period since last year when I experienced 4 months of severe bleeding only to be followed by only 3-4 days of brownish discharge in the last 12 months) The back pain seems to move to settle in my mid spine area then I get severe bloating, gas and stomach pain.
