I have and IUD, so I don't think I could be pregant. I am a very active person but the last week I have had cramping, nausua, headache, and dizziness. I have been pregnant before and this feels alot like it except for the cramping and headaches. I am wondering is there any other thinkgs I should look at before considering I am pregant. I have been tested for thyroid and low sugar, they were both negative. Please pass me some advise..

You can exclude or confirm a pregnancy in a very simple way: by taking a home pregnancy test. The symptoms you mention (cramping, nausea, headache, dizziness…) are common in many conditions and they are not evidence enough to diagnose any particular disease. You can visit your GP (general practitioner or family doctor) for further examinations to identify the cause(s) of your symptoms such as a physical examination, standard blood analyzes with sedimentation, and an abdominal ultrasound.
