Is mild cramps and leg pains any sign of ovulation or pregnancy ?

Is mild cramps and leg pains any sign of ovulation or pregnancy ?

General symptoms...: Having some muscle cramps and/or having some leg aches are considered "general symptoms" and not specific to ovulation or to a new pregnancy. That means women can get these symptoms whether or not they are ovulating, and whether or not they are newly pregnant. If symptoms persist or are bothersome, one's primary care doctor can take a look to help figure out the cause. ...Read more

All test are negative why am I still having pregnancy symptoms all except morning sickness and leg cramps, its been 2 1/2 weeks took test 24 and neg.

Health Class: Your symptoms do not in any way represent pregnancy. You have tested 24 times? Perhaps you should take a few minutes to learn that true early pregnancy is ASYMPTOMATIC until the fetus is big enough to make HCG and have a placenta. That means 'early' signs are not pregnancy but something else, usually. Leg cramping, a sign of the last weeks of pregnancy is not early pregnancy. Ever. ...Read more

Not enough calcium: Leg cramps can sometimes be due to not enough calcium, magnesium or potassium. Get 3-4 servings a day of milk or cheese or yogurt, and if you aren't getting that much take calcium supplements 500 mg once or twice a day. Oranges and bananas have potassium so eat them once a day. And check with your doctor! ...Read more

Today is 12dpiui....i noticed tiny yellow cm..i also have cramps in my leg and lower abdomen..bbs are sore...can this be a sign of pregnancy?

Not necessarily: I don't know what you mean by "tiny yellow cm" but leg cramps are not a sign of pregnancy. Lower abdominal cramps are premenstrual signs or possibly very early miscarriage. Sore breasts can be either premenstrual hormone changes or pregnancy hormone changes. If you are pregnant, a pregnancy test might be positive by now. ...Read more

2 week missed periods, and white discharge from the vagina, leg cramps, and fast heart beat. What could be the reason? Pregnancy?

Don’t guess.: Take a test.  they are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
