Is extreme bloating and light cramps after your period ends normal ?

Is extreme bloating and light cramps  after your period ends normal ?

No: No, "extreme" anything is not normal. A young and healthy woman can have an irregular period, cramping, or other menstrual symptoms once in a while. If the symptoms are brief, and she returns to normal quickly, and then has normal periods after that, it's not too worrisome. If sexually active, infections should be checked for. A primary care dr. Should evaluate if prolonged or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Gas buildup: Abdominal discomfort in the left upper quadrant with bloating is often due to trapped gas in the splenic flexure of the colon. Applying a hot water bottle to the abdomen helps break down the gas and enables you to pass it. A gentle laxative combined with a stool softener like senokot also should help you. ...Read more

Re-test: You might want to repeat the home pregnancy test and if it is negative but you still suspect pregnancy, get a blood test. These variations in your period may be due to stress, hormonal imbalances, or normal variation. Eat well, exercise, and manage your stress in a positive way (e.g. Yoga). Symptoms like these are best evaluated in person by your physician. ...Read more

I am pregn.Period 2/20. Sex on 3/3, 3/6, and 3/9.I started to have cramps, bloating, and white lotiony discharge on 3/11and after when was conception?

Conception: There is no perfect way to determine your conception date (unless ivf). With a last period beginning feb 20 you most likely ovulated on march 5-6. This is based on regular 27-29 day cycles. Sex on 3/3 or 3/6 are the most likely events. Sex on 3/9 was probably too late in your cycle. ...Read more

Sounds normal: Probably just a normal variation of your menstrual cycle and pattern. Some variations are normal and can be ignored. But if there is concern a home pregnancy test would be advisable. Did you try ibuprofen and did it help? ...Read more

Its been a week after my period and im feeling more tired, nauseous in the mornings and after I eat lunch bloating and mild cramps. What could it be?

Stomach problem: If this was a normal period it is unlikely that your problem is gynecological.It is more likely gastrointestinal. If your period was not normal and you are having unprotected sex, it would be a good idea to check a pregnancy test. Otherwise, see your primary care doctor or an urgent care clinic to check for stomach and intestinal problems.Probiotics may help. Good luck. Hope you feel better fast ...Read more

I have cramps, nausea, and bloating. This started after my period and I'm on birth control.. I feel really bad..

It might be...: Some women may experience this type of symptoms with their periods, however if this is something completely new you might need evaluation. On the other hand if you started new birth control hormones this could be side effects from those and those usually get better after a couple of weeks on them. If not the case #1 get pregnancy test and #2 go see your doctor for formal exam. ...Read more
