Menstrual cramps or implantation

Common Questions and Answers about Menstrual cramps or implantation


I am usually very regular (28 day cycle) and am just curious if anyone experienced this and whether this could be implantation bleeding or early onset of my menstrual?
Could these be implantation cramps or is it just wishful thinking? If they are how soon can i take a preg test?
I just dont know why id be cramping so soon already if it IS my period...any advice?? has anyone experienced implantation cramps or anything before they found out they were preggo?? HELP!!
Hello-my first time to this wonderful site! My husband and I just started trying this month for our 2nd child. I was gone for 2 wks, but had unprotected sex both before and after I returned. I totally expected to have my period since I was gone for so long. I had just gotten off the pill before having my last period. So, I started having very bad menstrual cramps and "shocks" in my breasts 3 days ago. I kept running to the bathroom thinking I was going to start. Nothing.
Been feeling abdominal pains, very similar to menstrual cramps for the past 2 weeks. Not accompanied by spotting or bleeding but feels a bit moist down there, and it makes me nervous, as I am traumatized by the miscarriage I had on December 5th 2011. Acne visible: Back and face. Black spots are surfacing on my armpits too. Feeling nauseated every now and then but no vomiting - thank God. :) Generally happy and hoping that baby is growing fine and happy!
however, mine was accompanied by cramping from the implantation. they were mild, menstrual-like cramps starting 6 or 7 days after i ovulated and they lasted a few weeks, on and off... as alayha said, wait till your period is due and take a test.
Then for the past 4days i've had mild cramps but no blood/period. i have 3 or 4 days for my regular menstrual cycle to come on...
Can anyone tell me what this might be. Is it not to early to have implantation cramping, or signs of pregnancy?
I've been having dull, but very noticeable cramping for almost a week now, but not spotting or bleeding. It is like menstrual cramping but I usually don't cramp until right before or during my period. I have a number of other possible early pregnancy symptoms. How long do implantation cramps usually last?
On the 20 I wiped a I had pink blood and an hour later it was red. I wanted to know could this be implantation bleeding or is it AF. Also I tested on 18 and 19 and got a BFN. Some please Help!!!!
my implantation cramps were like a milder version of menstrual cramps. i usually don't get my menstrual cramps till the day of or day before my period. this time i was getting them about 7 days before my expected period. i also had a teeney bit of brownish spotting which only lasted for a wipe or two. that was my first clue that i was pregnant!! good luck to you girl!!
I am worried because the last day or two I have been feeling sharp pains/twinges in my lower abdomen. Not like menstrual cramps but more like the ovulation pain I sometimes experience. If there is a fertilized egg in there (God willing) I am worried it may be implanting in the fallopian tube right now...and will result in an ectopic pregnancy. Does anyone have any experience with this? Any similar symptoms? I won't test for another week so if this pain continues I'm gonna go mad I think.
and this is my first try with clomid for my second try. i dont know if this could be implantation bleeding , miscarriage? or period? its heavy (kind of), i had very little cramps, isnt it too late for implantation bleeding though? what should i do ?
I don't know about many others, but I don't recall implantation bleeding, pain, or anything like that with EITHER of my two children, but that's just me. I didn't have any morning sickness either, so...??? However, I DID have menstrual-like cramps just before I found out I was Pg BOTH times, with just a hint of nausea in the evenings a few times with both, but other than that I never experienced any "implantation bleeding", pain or anything along those lines... Hope this helps...
I have been having cramps that feel like menstrual cramps. I don't have any spotting or anything but it feels like menstrual cramps.. should I be worried? I'm 18 and this is my first pregnancy.
On the morning(Nov 11) I saw few drops and light bleeding till now.What could this be implantation bleeding or a normal bleeding. I dont have any cramps,no fatigue..what should I do..conclude that I am not preg or have confused to the core.Can anyone Help me...
It can also cause your menstrual cycle to be late or early, so don't freak if it happens. Just make sure you ALWAYS use condoms BEFORE any genital to genital contact or penetration occurs.
Implantation bleeding does not look like a regular menstrual period. Implantation bleeding is scanty and usually pink or brownish discharge. Implantation bleeding normally occurs a week to a few days before your period would normally start. Spotting that occurs around a week after ovulation is likely implantation bleeding; whereas, spotting that occurs very close to the time that your period would normally start may not be.
My period isnt due to the 8th or 11th. So not sure if this could be implantation bleeding or just break through bleeding. I'm not testing until after the 11th because my periods varies some months. Im just wondering if anyone experienced bleeding and spotting like this and found out they was pregnant or if it was something more serious.. Im kinda worried and need some answers THANKS!!!!
i have been getting the menstrual like cramps as well! and especially thru the night! (im 4wds2days) i keep checking for bleeding and thank goodness, nothing! i thought the cramping was something that i would experience reeeeaallllly early, like right after conception. glad to know that it's normal and seems to linger a bit...
At around 10-12 DPO you may be able to detect the hormone with a very sensitive HPT. It sounds more like a period or pre-menstrual spotting, but since you can never really know with these things, you should wait until the day your period will come and do an HPT.
Can any of you guys help me with this problem or have expierenced this. Im now confused as too if this is implantation bleeding or if its something els? Advice is much needed.
I've been having weird side ache like cramps for the last 4 or 5 days. It seems to switch from my left side to my right but sporadically throughout the day. I've also felt mild cramping in my lower abdomen right in the middle. They feel different from normal menstrual cramps though. Is this is sign of pregnancy? I took a preg test 2 days ago and it was negative. I'm sure its too soon to tell but has anyone else experienced cramps like this?
If you read anything about heavy implantation bleeding will you let me know, or if you know anybody who has experienced it, i would like to hear about it. Thanks again!!!
Generally implantation bleeding is light spotting and lasts a few hours up to maybe 2 days. It's normally brown or very light pink, and rarely will it be heavy or red. It's possible it could be that, or it could just be vaginal bleeding. It can happen in-between cycles for little to no reason.
Well since you only ovulate last Thursday it could be implant cramps...Who knows though? I think that you will have to wait until your period is due until you take a test! I have my fingers crossed for you!
