Hello for the past week and a half I have been feeling a pulling or pressure sensation in my lower abdominal. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for about 10 months now. I had my last period on the 3rd of this month. It was light all except for one day and it lasted about five days, it usually lasts 7-9 days. I workout very hard five to six days a week and about three of those days are running days. I know this feeling is not cramps I'm just not sure what to make of it? Today was the first day I had a pain feeling on the right side just below my hip into the groin area. It only lasted about five minutes? Should I be worried about something internally going on or should I just keep going on about my days?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum

If you have not had your periods since March, you should consult a gynecologist. Since you are not having periods, there are bound to be problems that hamper conception.

Since you have pain in the lower abdomen area you should rule out pregnancy. If there are no periods, it is difficult to know whether you are pregnant or not. Hence take a pregnancy test.

If you are not pregnant then it could be due to cystitis, polycystic ovary or due to inflammation of bowel.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your doctor once. It would be a good idea to consult an infertility specialist. Hope this helps. Take care!
