menstrual-cycle

Is it normal to have constant menstrual cramps while walking or after walking. I am 36 weeks 5 days pregnant.
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.
What could it be when you're 26 weeks pregnant and cramps feel like your about to have your menstrual cycle?
It's normal to feel menstrual-like cramps while you are pregnant. I'm 27 weeks and just the other day I thought "I'm getting my period" and then remembered I'm pregnant. Haha. If your cramps are strong and painful, however, you should call your docotor. But mild cramping, I get it all the time. As you get farther along and your uterus and abs and everything starts stretching and growing in there, you'll probably feel "cramps" more.
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.
So, on Friday i had really really bad cramps....they felt like menstrual cramps..like i couldve started my period at any minute. i was out of town visiting my mom and i wasnt having any bleeding, i didnt fall or anything like that so i thought maybe i was just stretching...a lot. so i layed down and suffered....i was expecting them to go away but they stayed there the whole day..i got little breaks here and there but it was mostly there all day just like period cramps..
i know i posted about cramping while pregnant a little while ago but they have been hurting! almost close to the cramps i had during my mc. there is no blood but just cramps that are hellacious! is it normal? i am only like 3 weeks now maybe 4. has any one else had this?
I'm 35 weeks pregnant with my first and currently experiencing terrible menstrual like cramps in my lower abdomen. It started the other day at work so I thought it was just me running around too much and once I sat down and relaxed they subsided. Just now while getting something to eat I got some of the worst ones yet and again once I sit down I feel better. My stomach gets very tight and I have to stop whatever I'm doing. I can't tell if they are contractions or just the baby sitting weird.
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!
May23rd the pain was getting to the point where i decided to see my doctor, she urged me to do a UTI and that i may not be pregnant. May 24th my doctor wasnt in for the results and my cramps were at its worst. May 25th got my results, negative to the UTI, so she gave me the medication "just in case" i had one and it just didnt show up. she gave me a pelvic exam and found my belly was normal.
However, I did not miss my period. I started bleeding with the flow of a typical period with menstrual cramps along with it. I took another pregnancy test and it still says positive. Can anyone help ease my mind as to what may be going on?
You cannot have a period while you are pregnant, so the bleeding you experienced and thought was your period was probably something else. As Spiket said, I don't think it's possible to have your period and a positive hpt only a week later. Was the bleeding similar to your regular period? Heavy flow, clots, and cramps? Heavy bleeding happens during pregnancy but it can be a bad sign.
Many women will experience mild to moderate menstrual type cramping while pregnant, and it can last for a day or several weeks. As long as it's not severe, one sided and/or is accompanied by bleeding it shouldn't be a problem.
yes it is possiabe for some women to have their period while being pregnant.... i had my period for the first 3 months of being pregnant for both of my children so sometimes it is ok...
Hello everyone I was just wondering if any of you have ever had a cyst on your ovary while pregnant... I am 9 weeks pregnant and they told me that i have a cyst on my right ovary. It was 3 cm at the time and she told me that as long as it does not grow to 6cm then they will not have to remove it. If any of you ladies have ever had this I would love to know what the out come was. I am a little worried and I have been having some sharp pains on and off in my right side!!
The only thing that calms me down is taking xanax 0.25mg. I have only taken it 3 times while pregnant, when I am really crying and cannot stop. Has anyone taken xanax while pregnant and baby been fine?
Thought I would post this question just out of curiousity. Has anyone gotten pregnant while nursing and without a cycle? So far the hpt have been neg. But I am having symptoms that I have only ever had while pg or some I have never had at all. I never have menstrual like cramps without my period and didn't even know that you could at the beginning of being pg till reading it here.
Its so confusing because there have been so many women who have gotten pregnant while using a birth control contraceptive.
So my period is two days late (I know now much) and I have been having cramps but they do not feel like menstrual cramps, more like ovulation cramps. Could that be an indicator that I may be pregnant?
Now I have to say i am 28 years old, and this has never happened to me before EVER, not while on the pill, not while being pregnant, ever!!! I am just confused as to why my period is stopping and starting, and over again??? Any suggestions???? I am sure if i call my doctor's office they will tell me it's normal, normally brown blood is old blood, but what gives??? i'm not on the pill, my husband had a vasectomy two years ago, is this because i have a cold so it's acting wierd??? I don't know??
I did an at home pregnancy test, and it said that I was NOT pregnant. I am trying to see if I can find any documented side effects of Suboxone that state that your menstrual cycle can be effected. Has anyone on here that is on Suboxone had any side effects like the one I mentioned? Oh, and the last few days I have had headaches (surprise surprise) but other than that, the Suboxone has been a Godsend. I am just hoping that I have to trade my regular menstrual cycle to be on it.
Haha it's okay, I'm really against taking meds while pregnant, but I'm going to take 2 tylenol, take a hot shower, and lay on the heating pad and see if it eases up.
So basically I was going through it while having Graves Disease and never connected the two. My menstrual cycle was irregular to start with ...sometimes 2 a month, then sometimes none for 3 months then after 2 years I went 11 months without a cycle. Then finally 12 months without a cycle. It has been 3 years now since I last had a menstrual cycle and blood tests confirmed I was Post Menopausal. Graves and Hashis are well known for interfering with womens cycles and early menopause.
I usually get cramps few days to a week before I start. So was surprised. I find that my periods come when they want to. I use to be able to know about when they'd come, but as I've gotten older they've changed.
I noticed my menstrual blood was darker and smelled really bad this period. It's so gross and super embarrassing. Sex wise I have been with the same partner for over a year, and we are monogamous. He is not circumcised. We recently switched to condoms because I was warned other medications I am on for headaches could make my birth control less effective. I was just on antibiotics two weeks ago for a sinus infection. My mom has a history of endomitriosis. Any suggestions?
