period

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn Usually before i get my period, i get bad cramps. During my period, i get even worse cramps. And i still have bad cramps a couple days after my period. i can't stand the pain. i take ibuprofen a lot during my period, but lately it doesn't seem like it's working. is there anything i can do so i won't have this bad of cramps?
Avatar n tn Could be that you're getting ready for ovulation. You could be constipated or something, sometimes that causes cramping that feels similar to period cramps.
1164742 tn?1262959830 I have never experience cramps yet, and my period usually last about 3 to 4 days. I am now 18 years old, still haven't experience cramps, and my period still lasts 3 to 4 days. My questions is: Is this normal? Is my body not functioning well? Why am I not getting any cramps? Help is much appreciated. I'm very curious about this.
Avatar f tn Is it normal to have period like cramps during your pregnancy? Im 13 wks. I had those cramps this passed Monday, it woke me out of my sleep. It really made nervous and i checked to make sure i wasn't bleeding and i wasn't.

Avatar f tn I am at my 3rd placebo pill as of today the 21st at 9pm. I noticed that on early Sunday I woke up with severe cramps. I thought my period had come down. I went to check and nothing. The cramps kept going and going. I was curious to see if I was going to be on my prd so I used a tampon. I pulled it out right away and noticed that were was blood clots(just like last month) Nothing was still coming down when I would urinate or wipe myself clean. Through out the day, my pain level was probably 8.
Avatar f tn Thanks for using the forum. Some women experience nausea with their period symptoms. Often, the nausea is coupled with cramps/abdominal pain. Once the pain is relieved, the nausea resolves. Fever, is not a common period symptom. I would recommend making an appointment with your doctor. You need to make sure that you don't have any infections causing your symptoms. I hope you are feeling better soon.
Avatar f tn I am 15 years old and I am experiencing the WORST period cramps!! I have had my period for 3 years now and have never had such bad as cramps. I also get really hot at school and feel like I am going to pass out sometimes.
Avatar f tn I will be 21 weeks tomorrow and for the past two weeks or so, I've been having menstrual-like cramps. They don't come at any particular time, and like period cramps, it hurts in my lower abdomen and back. Are these Braxton Hicks? Why am I experiencing this?

Avatar f tn I have suffered from severe menstrual cramps for many years. Does it affect getting pregnant in anyway? I heard that women suffering from such cramps find it difficult to become pregnant. Is it true?
Avatar n tn If you are not bleeding but are cramping, it could be cramps from your period followed by cramping with ovulation, or something else like an ovarian cyst, but anything is possible. Why don't you take a pregnancy test? Then you will know.
Avatar f tn Lately for the past couple days as of today I been having lower cramps all down there as if their menstrual cramps. I just had a period 12 days ago. I have been having sex for the last 10 days no protection with my husband. We have been trying to conceive for a year now and nothing. Could I be pregnant. Anyone have any opinions. ?
7019649 tn?1396796117 I'm 35+5, and as I started getting ready for work today, I started having strong cramps that feel like bad period cramps. Not sure what's going on in there since I'm a first time mom. Is it normal to get these on and off?
Avatar f tn For the past two weeks or so, I've been having menstrual-like cramps every now and then. They don't come at any particular time, but like period cramps, it hurts in my lower abdomen and back. Are these Braxton Hicks contractions? Why am I experiencing this?
Avatar f tn I can't answer ur question but I'm 34 weeks and have been having period cramps the last 2 days so ill bump u so someone might answer!
Avatar f tn When they aren't the sharp pains that go up higher, it's just a dull ache like the period cramps. But the cramps have been pretty constant for the past hour or so. I know I'm not in labor yet, but could this the beginning signs? I know I still have to lose the mucous plug and all that, but did anyone else have these cramps b4 going into labor?

10913038 tn?1424231311 I am 16 weeks and experiencing menstrual like cramps. It started about 3 hours ago and hasn't let up. Is this normal or is this something I should be concerned about? I had a subchorionic hemorrhage at 6 weeks and it has decreased in size as of my 11 week ultrasound. I'm not sure if it is still there and maybe causing the cramping. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't remember any period cramping with my first baby.
