Mittleschmerz: Impossible to say for sure, but probably nothing unusual. Pain around ovulation is common and called mittleschmerz. It's definitely not 'pregnancy' yet, too early for reliable symptoms. Good luck! .

Hello I have been cramping in my lower stomach area are these signs or pregnancy? I also have had the feeling of throwing up bit never do

Cramping is: NOT a sign of pregnancy and in fact is not a "healthy" sign if you are pregnant. First of all there are numerous OTC (Over the Counter) Pregnancy Tests which a quite reliable after you have MISSED a period. (Some are positive earlier on) Nausea may be a sign of early pregnancy but usually NOT right after conception! Talk with you GYN about the fears/symptoms you are having! Hope this helps! Dr Z

Is on and off cramping for a few days mid cycle a sign of pregnancy?

Is on and off cramping for a few days mid cycle a sign of pregnancy?

Probably not.: Hi Eugene, Cramping can be caused by many factors. Too many to name just now. But consider that ovulation occurs mid-cycle. There are so many hormonal changes at this time. The uterus is a hormone sensitive organ and responds in 1 of 2 ways. It either cramps &/or bleeds. I would say that mid cycle cramping is expected and normal, therefore do not worry.
