Lower abdomen cramps on and off. My period is 4 days late. Took ella (ulipristal acetate) 10 days ago (after ovulation) and neg pregnancy test today. Pregnancy worries..

Probably from ella (ulipristal acetate): Since your pregnancy test is negative, you are most likely not pregnant. I would recommend to repeat the test in 7 days if you still don't get your period. It is very common to get abnormal or delay in period due to ella (ulipristal acetate). You are likely having cramps due to taking this medication and now it is also offsetting your period. ...Read more

Wait/DoPregnancyTest: It is hard to say if you are or not pregnant. I advice you wait for your period&if you miss your period do pregnancy test to see if it is positive.

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

Clear+stretchy cervical mucus at cycle day 10, 11. Had left leg mild (pms like) cramps on cd 8. No CM at all at cd 12 (today)could I be ovulating today?

Clear+stretchy cervical mucus at cycle day 10, 11. Had left leg mild (pms like) cramps on cd 8. No CM at all at cd 12 (today)could I be ovulating today?

Ovulation: Ovulation occurs consistently about 14 days before your next cycle. If you know how many days there are from the first day of the bleeding to the next during your normal cycle just subtract 14 days. This allows you to predict when you should be ovulating. Cervical mucous is not very accurate. Home ovulation kits available at any pharmacy may be more helpful. ...Read more

I've had mild cramps in my lower abdomen the last 3 days, I had sex 4 days ago (2days before ovulation) is this implantation cramps?

Check a test: It sounds more like you just had an episode of midcycle cramping since you are the middle of this menstrual cycle. Anyone having sex without birth control or condoms is at risk of getting pregnant. The only way to know will be to check a test. If you miss your period then take one and you will have your answer. ...Read more

I had protected sex on my ovulation day. But 3 days after im feeling mild cramps, feeling bit nauseaus and my lower abdomen hurts when pressed. Pregnant?

Too soon to know: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow 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, if you have sex.

May need Dr.'s exam: A young and healthy woman can have an irregular period, cramping, or other menstrual symptoms once in a while. If the symptoms are brief, plus she returns to normal quickly, and then has normal periods after that, it's not too worrisome.

Used ovulation kit. Found out I'm ovulating yesterday/today. Had sex last night. Feeling cramps in my lower abdomen. Fertilization symptoms???

Pregnancy: Unlikely, it takes a couple of days for the sperm to reach the egg depending on the distance the egg had traveled down the fallopian tube. Fertilization does not cause symptoms.

I ovulated 4 days ago and now I have cramp like pain on the left side of my abdomen I am TTC could this be implantation pain??

Unlikely: Implantation may cause some spotting, but it is unlikely for it to cause noticeable pain. The pain that you're having is more likely to be pain related to fluid from the ruptured follicle when it released an egg. That fluid can be irritating to your pelvis. The pain, as long as it is moderate, should go away on its own but if it worsens or persists longer than 48 hours, see a doctor. ...Read more
