Abdominal has been too gassy. Had period 2 weeks ago and sex today and yesterday. What does it mean? Is it normal? Should she worry?

Abdominal has been too gassy. Had period 2 weeks ago and sex today and yesterday. What does it mean? Is it normal? Should she worry?

1st, why RU gassy?: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks). Sometimes its more complicated--a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pelvic pathology outside the gut. ...Read more

Period a week & a half late. 2 negative pregnant tests. Sharp on and off pain in lower abdomin. Also feeling gassy, any ideas of what it could be?

Premenstrual: These sound like premenstrual type symptoms. The fact that you've had 2 negative pregnancy tests seems pretty solid that you're not pregnant. It's normal to have these types of symptoms prior to a period starting. Ibuprofen, 600mg every 8 hours can be of help for the pain you're experiencing, but it looks like you're already on that? If pain continues, consider seeing a gynecologist. ...Read more

What does it mean when you're bloated, cramping, gassy, but don't start your period for another 8 days?

What does it mean when you're bloated, cramping, gassy, but don't start your period for another 8 days?

Bloating / gassiness: There are lots of reasons for gassiness & bloating, & not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." however psbo (paralyzed gut) due to metabolic & inflammatory conditions nearby (like an untreated infection of gyne or urinary tract) must be considered. See doctor, esp. If no relief from otc simethicone, beano, & dietary changes. ...Read more

I've been having a lot of sex with my boyfriend this past week. I'm cramping, gassy, and I feel like I'm gonna start my period but I haven't.

Menses: If you are due for your period and have not started it then it is possible you are pregnant. It would be helpful to know if your period is due, if you are late for your period, if you last period was normal, if you are on birth control? If you are not late for your cycle these symptoms could be due to a number of factors, including an ovarian cyst, gastroenteritis or others. ...Read more

Opk test show positive somewhere Ard cd13-16. I have 32day cycle. Today I felt like period coming, gassy, backpain. My AF due in 11days. I'm confused.

Too soon to know: If you miss your period by 4-5 days do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I have been having my usual PMS Symptoms the past 5 days. But unusually gassy. My period is over a week late & I’ve had 4 negative tests. Am I prego?

I have been having my usual PMS Symptoms the past 5 days. But unusually gassy. My period is over a week late & I’ve had 4 negative tests. Am I prego?

No, not likely: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more
