Don't worry: Many women ingest things before they realize they're pregnant. The baby is not even in connection with your blood supply solidly until 14 days after conception. Ibuprofen is much more of a concern at the end of pregnancy when using it can cause a very important valve in the babies heart to close too soon. In early pregnancy it's much less of an issue. Try not to worry. ...Read more

I've been having cramps lately but this don't feel like period cramps can it be a sign of pregnancy because I had the same thing with my 1st baby ?

I've been having cramps lately but this don't feel like period cramps can it be a sign of pregnancy because I had the same thing with my 1st baby ?

Hard to tell...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

How can you tell the diffrence beyween period cramps and pregnancy cramps. Can you still have bloating if u are pregnant?

Uterine cramps: Pregnancy cramps and menstrual cramps typically feel very similar because the discomfort is coming from contraction of the same uterine muscle. Menstrual cramps, however, may be more severe since the muscles can contract more when the uterus is empty. You can get bloating and pelvic congestion during pregnancy. ...Read more

Pre-menstrual: It sounds as if you are having pre-menstrual type symptoms. Pre-menstrual symptoms can feel a lot like pregnancy symptoms and it can be hard, sometimes, to tell them apart. Ibuprofen, and a warm bath, will likely help with your cramping. Take 600mg ibuprofen. ...Read more

Is pressure at the bum area normal in pregnancy? I'm 36 weeks soon and today i have been feeling pressure and period cramps..

Is pressure at the bum area normal in pregnancy? I'm 36 weeks soon and today i have been feeling pressure and period cramps..

Pressure: in the rectum along with cramping sounds like you are in labor. I would call your OB and get advice and/or head to labor and delivery for a labor check. Anytime a pregnant women uses the word pressure in her rectum, I am reminded of the baby I delivered in the ladies room because Mom felt like she needed to have a BM while walking through our clinic. ...Read more

I have no had a period in two months but the pregnancy test came back negative. Also, when having sex it feels like period cramps.

I have no had a period in two months but the pregnancy test came back negative. Also, when having sex it feels like period cramps.

Get checked.: Two months without a period, is worth investigating the cause. If you have not checked a pregnancy test recently, do it again, and follow the instructions exactly and make sure the kit has not expired. Uncommonly, the tests can be inaccurate. A blood test will verify it. You need an exam and possibly other tests to find out what is wrong. ...Read more

I have stomach cramps and bad lower back pain, its not pregnancy or period cramps and has been happening for 2 week, what else could be causing this?

Confusing : Stomach cramps and low back pain are not usually associated unless you mean low abdominal cramps with low back pain. In that case it can be from the bladder (like an infection) or from your uterus (pelvic pain) unless it is 2 separate problems happening at the same time. Give us more info. ...Read more

Period cramps 4 days after ovulation. Could this indicate pregnancy?
