Hi I'm 26 years old and have recently had an unusual period,
My fianc and I have been trying to conceive for the past year and a half with no luck.
We have been to a specialist where we found out that my right Fallopian tube is blocked which could
Be the cause if my right side is dominant. However I got my period November 1st and it was over by the 4th.
I had no cramps at all until the 7th and it was unusually quick, plus every period since i started it at age 11
Has been accompanied by extremely painful cramps so tue fact that i had none is also out of the ordinary.
Can it be possible that I am ovulating early ? The cramps I'm experiencing now feel just like ovulation cramps
But it would only be 6 days since my last period. Is this possible ? Or could you offer any other explanation ?
I would greatly appreciate any advice.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The usual fertile days for a regular menstrual cycle of 28-30 days, would lie between day 8-18 taking day 1 as first day of bleeding (at times you can also have early ovulation). Sometimes ovulation can be accompanied by cramps and spotting. If you have been sexually active, then absence of pre-menstrual symptoms and altered periods could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy and implantation. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further examination and investigations to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on the examination findings and investigation results) would be started to help you. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your next periods. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you develop symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
