I posted this in my playroom, but it hasn't been a very hopping place lately, and I may get more answers here.
Well, I need some help. I was wondering if anyone gets cramps from Ovulation until they get AF. This has happened the last two months.
My cycles have been:
Dec 25 (3 days late due to stress I think).
Before this I didn't have regular periods. Something happened, and I took the morning after pill, which totally screwed with my cycles for a few months. I didn't even bleed red blood until September.
Anyways, so sometimes I can feel ovulation. I start getting cramps around O time, and they go away shortly after. However, the last 2 months, I have gotten cramps and they have lasted. This month I started getting cramps around the 9th, and they are still here today. It feels like AF is about to come any day now. They feel like AF cramps, but also hurt in my lower back a bit (like lower abdominal looping around to my back). I get UTI's a lot, so I know that I don't have one. It feels a little bit like stretching and pulling as well. Any ideas, or anyone who gets this too? It is getting really frustrating. It's bad enough I have bad PMS, but then I have AF cramps for 2 weeks to boot.
I don't have ovulation cramps every month but sometimes they are really painful. It is weird but the month I got pregnant I seemed to have some serious O pains. It could have been because I knew my exact day of ovulation and I was more aware.
Before I got preggo with dd, I always felt ovulation, but it was short. After dd I would get cramps starting around O time or shortly before and then they would last and last for 2 weeks. They would go away just in time for AF. And come right back >.<
Ever since I had dd I tend to get cramps off and on starting a week before my period.
Not to freak you out, but I do know that stuff like endometriosis and cysts are pretty common and can cause cramping, so it is probably a good idea to get a check-up so you can find something to help you, kwim?
