Cramping: Cramping can represent the very event of the ovary releasing an egg in ovulation. But, in general it is never a symptom of early pregnancy. It is more commonly a sign of infection in the vagina, cervix, or urinary tract.

Ovulation?: 2 weeks before your period is when you ovulate, so possibly hormonal changes or an ovarian issue when the egg is released causes your pain and discomfort. Get in to see the GYN and have them evaluate you. Unless you had unprotected sex, there would not be a chance of pregnancy simply due to mid cycle pain. Good luck SalmasiM.

Lets review you are : Before I can answer your question, I will need to ask some more questions. Are your cycles normal? how many days are your cycle? They can range from 28-32 days. Is your menses on the light or heavier side?
Are you sexually active? on anytype of birth control? Use any type of protection? Does this pain occur with every period? Any painful intercourse? How would you describe the pain? does it radia
