Hi. I'm 17 years old and I was wondering if the feeling of pressure and very light cramps is a sign of pregnancy. It happens like a cm below where my menstrual cramps used to happen. Is it possible that I'm pregnant?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you had your last period on 15th of May, then what you feel now could be due to ovulation and not due to pregnancy. You can confirm for pregnancy if you miss periods by taking a pregnancy test. Hope this helps. Take care!
