I don't know what to think about this. My husband and I have been trying for a baby, but i've been experiencing cramping as if i'm going to get my period. My period ended last friday the 2nd - we've had sex 4 times since then. Why am I cramping? I've never had this happen to me before and it's uncomfortable and very annoying.

Mild cramping can occur for any number of reasons: cysts, ovulation, hormone change, gas, constipation, viruses or bacteria. Just about any reason. I had mild cramping the week before I was to start my period, along with all my other normal premenstral symptoms. Only my period never came and I am now due april 23rd. The cramping continued for about 3 weeks, and has now mostly subsided. I am a little over 8 wks into my pregnancy now.

Hopefully for you it is just your body getting ready for the ovulation. If you just finished your period and are trying to conceive then I would suggest having sex every day from now until 2 - 3 weeks from now. When finished with the act linger in bed laying on your back or side. Some suggest even putting a pillow under your rear to help keep the fluids in. Good luck and keep us posted!

Cramps after period
I had my period on the 4th and it ended on 7 th. I've been having cramps today and my period was kinda normal but light. I haven't had sex with my husband since I had my period so I don't really think I'm preg. But what else could it be? I've been very stressed so would that cause cramps?

Gymraes, why not run a pregnancy test - it's not too soon. A bleed does not always mean not pregnant. Do you have any other signs - fatigue, breasts, back, appetite, discharge etc? Good luck!

Elin, a week after your period stops is when the egg drops. Maybe you are having an unusual ovulation - any spotting? Which said, if sperm from the recent days catch that egg you could yet get pregnant. If you don't want pregnancy you need to visit a clinic and get on birth control - depo shot, IUD, implant, condoms and spermicide, the pill or whatever. The ten days before your next period are the best for worry-free sex.

WHAT IS IT THEN?
Thank you ppowb,

I don't have any spotting but i also read that it is very rare to get spotting, I also had white fluid that came out that felt like a period and when i checked it wasn't, I did use birth control pill up to 4 months back, didn't have time to go get more, the pain only lasted a few hours then when i woke up next day it was gone but i drank a pain killer, and with the pain i could almost not walk, i was VERY PALE, and i was so dizzy??

NORMAL?

Is it possible you got pregnant the month before and had an in-pregnancy bleed? That lotion discharge is a preg sign. Run a home test to see.

HOME TEST
Hi,

I did run a home test, but it was last week Friday at night about 6H00 and it said not pregant. It was a clear Blue one, and they are pretty accurate, so i want to take another one Tomorrow the 22.12.2015 just to make sure and im taking it the morning.

What do you think

The test you ran a week ago tells us you are not pregnant from the month before. It is still too early to test for pregnancy this cycle. You have enough complaints to justify a doctor visit for hormone upsets tat could be from glands or cysts.
