I'm 5 weeks pregnant havering extreme lower left back pain. Only left side ovary also cramps should I concern?

Yes: Anytime you are this early pregnant and have significant unilateral pelvic pain you must rule out ectopic pregnancy. Likely related to CL cyst but need pelvic ultrasound to verify intrauterine pregnancy first. Good luck.

Could be...: In the beginning of pregnancy you may experience abdominal upset, nausea and vomiting as the fetal hormone starts rising. Usually by your 15th week those symptoms should get better. Make sure you stay hydrated and if too much nausea and vomiting call your OB for medication prescription as necessary.

I'm 9.5 weeks pregnant and im having cramps on my right side around what would be my ovary is that normal or could it be early miscarriage? No bleeding

I'm 9.5 weeks pregnant and im having cramps on my right side around what would be my ovary is that normal or could it be early miscarriage? No bleeding

Could be ovary: Having cramps on the right side in early pregnancy but no bleeding could be from the right ovary. The ovary that released the egg often forms a cyst, due to the hormones the ovary is producing. That cyst will go away on its own but can cause some discomfort. The cramping could also be from gas in intestines or constipation. Since no bleeding unlikely to be miscarriage.

DVT and pregnancy.: Your symptoms do not sound like DVT but there are 2 things that will help to solve the problem--a venous ultrasound of the leg veins which is very accurate for DVT or a d-dimer blood test which is significant for no clots if negative.

I'm 5 weeks pregnant and having moderate cramping should I be concerned?

I'm 5 weeks pregnant and having moderate cramping should I be concerned?

Not necessarily...: Abdominal cramping is a very common symptom associated with pregnancy, and can show up throughout pregnancy due to indigestion, heartburn, constipation, as well as pregnancy-specific causes like implantation, uterine growth and stretching. I would not immediately be worried. If it gets worse, or becomes associated with bleeding, see your physician or midwife.

Sacoiliac joint belt: Pain in the low back and pelvis during pregnancy is considered, by many doctors, to be generated from the pelvic girdle; especially from mechanical torque focused upon the pelvic girdle bony ring and contained joints, the symphysis pubis and two sacroiliac joints. Partial pain relief is sometimes enabled by a sacroiliac belt. Many obstetricians are familiar with and can prescribe. See boa. Com.

Possibly: Sometimes loss of pregnancy symptoms is the first sign of miscarriage. However, pregnancy symptoms vary a great deal. Until you start bleeding, I would be hopeful. An ultrasound around 6 weeks will usually give you the answer.
