I am a little worried (definitely a worry-wart!) - I got my period on the 1st of January, then had protected sex on the 17th of January. I guess I ovulated around the 14th although I can't be sure. Condom was fine, no breakages. I am very regular, so I would expect my period on the 28/29th of January. However, just a few days after I had sex (19th/20th/21st), I started experiencing dull cramping, similar to, but nowhere near as bad as my usual period cramps. It's been going on for about 3 days so far on and off. So far that is all I have been experiencing.... I know it's way too early to tell, and perhaps my worry is making it worse.... but just wondering if the cramps could be implantation cramps....

Any help would be appreciated!

Welcome to ehealthforum

Since you had protected intercourse chances of pregnancy are very rare.It might be that the cramps you are experiencing could be because of hormonal fluctuation.Since it is too early and also I am not examining you it is very difficult to comment on.
Wait for your next periods.If you get the periods and still get the cramps kindly visit a Gynaecologist for examination.

Take Care!
