5 days past ovulation. Slight cramps, slight lower back pain, slight stabbing pain on left side of pelvis and sometimes right. Possible implantation?

5 days past ovulation. Slight cramps, slight lower back pain, slight stabbing pain on left side of pelvis and sometimes right. Possible implantation?

Maybe. Maybe not.: 5 days may be a bit too soon, but life is never exact. Women don't know the exact moment they ovulate. Nobody knows the exact moment of fertilization, in a natural pregnancy. Also, no one knows exactly how long one particular fertilized egg takes to get into the uterus of one particular woman. No worries, don't think about it, and just wait for that missed period, before doing a pregnancy test. ...Read more

Is it true that severe low back pain but no bleeding is considered normal on early pregnancy?

Is it true that severe low back pain but no bleeding is considered normal on early pregnancy?

Lots of Reasons: When pregnant, there are so many things going on. Your hormones are very different causing your ligaments to stretch quite a bit especially in the pelvis resulting in pain. Also the baby's position can place stress on your spine resulting in bulging discs or even herniated disks causing the sciatica pain. Recommend seeing a pregnancy specialized therapist that can guide you through this. ...Read more

3 months late on period. Urine test neg for pregnancy. Ultrasound on pelvic neg.Clear mucus coming out.  Having extreme lower back pain on left side ?

A few ideas: It sounds like there could be other reasons for your lack of menses. #1 reason would be a hormonal imbalance. Other reasons could include thyroid or pituitary problems. Often women miss cycles due to weight (being too thin or too heavy, too little or too much estrogen). Clear mucous is normal. Back pain could be musculoskeletal, your kidneys, or endometriosis. See a MD if still no period. ...Read more
