Cramps maybe: Some cramps with ovulation are common but not gas or bloating. Those are signs of progesterone, characteristic of CD-20 or later. The bloating is increase bowel gas and may be interpreted by the patient as "gas." Progesterone worsens insulin resistance and in the luteal phase, carbohydrate intake is greater, creating more bowel gas. When 27feet of bowel increases diameter bloating occurs.
