Had IUI (clomid+ ovidril), 2 follicles mturd confirmed, 10dpIUI (19th dayofthecycle), cramps like that I get in periods, but no spotting yet? Ispreg sym?

Not Really: Cramping 10 days post IUI may not be related to pregnancy. It is too early. It may mean that period is coming. It can also mean a completely different issue like an ovarian cyst that can happen with Clomid (clomiphene). It may be even related to implantation. So, it is best to just wait another 4 days and see if you need to do a pregnancy test. Good Luck! ...Read more

I had iui this month, I was expecting period on 06/27 but instead I have spotting and cramps. I did home pregnancy test which is negative. I don't know what's going on I still have no periods.?

I had iui this month, I was expecting period on 06/27 but instead I have spotting and cramps. I did home pregnancy test which is negative. I don't know what's going on I still have no periods.?

Re-check PG test: Wait 24 hours and if no period re-check the pregnancy test. Sometimes, the first test may be too early to have enough HCG (pregnancy hormone) present to convert the test to positive. If you still see "no period" and the test is faintly positive or negative have a GYN MD do a blood pregnancy test and exam to rule out an ectopic pregnancy. ...Read more

Are period cramps worse during teenage years? I used to get bad cramps as a teenager which slowed down in my 20s. Could it be endometriosis?

Endometriosis?: Because a young teen age woman is unfamiliar with the effects of larger doses of hormones produced in the menstrual cycle, the effects seem stronger than when regular cycles predominate in one's 20's and up. Endometriosis is treated well with low dose oral contraceptives, and fertility is preserved better than with untreated endometriosis, which can seriously affect fertility negatively. ...Read more

I've had super bad cramps on and off since December 6.They feel like super bad period cramps but stop when I get my period. And now they are back. Why?

I've had super bad cramps on and off since December 6.They feel like super bad period cramps but stop when I get my period. And now they are back. Why?

It depends on the: Rest of your recent menstruation history. If you have had irregular bleeding in the past or recently stopped hormone or contraception pills, or implants, then that would explain why your periods are changing. If you have had nothing to alter your periods, then other things like nutrition, stress, weight change, exercise, weather, mood can also play a role. I would wait 2 weeks to see change. ...Read more
