I've been getting period symptoms the day after my period ended is that normal? I'm having cramping my gums usually get sore a few days before my period starts and I'm just getting that symptom now, also feeling a little nausea, I had sex June 30 I thought I could be pregnant took a pregnancy test it said negative then I got my period July 10th, it was 6 days like normal, I know you cant get full bleeding while pregnant, but is it possible I could be?? My period ended July 15th since then i've had very bad bloating and a little gas like pains it's been 3 days and wont go away, I took a pregnancy test on the 16th in the late afternoon it was also negative.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. When pregnancy occurs, cessation of menses occurs. Since you had your periods, so chances of pregnancy are less and these symptoms can be due to other causes like GI causes like acid reflux, gastrointestinal infections or irritable bowel syndrome.

First of all avoid eating any junk food or oily, spicy food. Take a healthy,balanced and nutritious diet consisting more of fruits, salads, soups and raw vegetables(after proper washing).Also increase the protein content in your diet instead of carbohydrates and fats.

An advice from a dietician will be helpful. Take some OTC antacid like Mylanta. If the symptoms persist then please consult a physician and get gall bladder disease ruled out.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
