What is this cramping two days after cycle and now to add to cramps I have random twitching in lower mid abdomen?

What is this cramping two days after cycle and now to add to cramps I have random twitching in lower mid abdomen?

Could be intestines: It might be your intestines talking to you. Sometimes when they are irritated they can cause what feels like cramping. Gas moving around in the intestines can also feel somewhat like random twitching with the gas bubbles moving around at random times and creating that kind of feeling. Are you having loose stools or diarrhea as well? Have you changed your diet recently? Are you stressed? ...Read more

Had unprotected sex and 3 days after extreme cramps in right mid-section of abdomen and feel a hard ball navel area. Am I pregnant?

Not likely: if you are pregnant from this unprotected episode. However you could be pregnant from previous unprotected episodes if it has been a couple of months. When was your last menstrual period? The "hard ball" could be anything from a hernia, a knot or bruise in your muscles, a lymph node or skin infection. Take a couple of pregnancy tests 2 weeks apart and find out. ...Read more

Stomach spasms for 24 hours in mid to lower abdomen.  Also mild cramps on right side abdomen.  Not sure if I should take Zantac (ranitidine). ?

Stomach cramps right: I think you should see and ER or doctor/urgent care today, as with cramping on right side think appendicitis. Could also be ovarian cyst, mass, UTI, right diverticula ( which is rarer) kidney stone (especially if back pain). But since appendicitis is emergency would follow up w/ doc/ ER today. ...Read more

It : It could be hormonal imbalance, or it could be separate from a gynecological issue and be a gastro-intestinal issue. If your bowels have been irregular it can cause cramping as well. If your period is late however, take a pregnancy test to be sure. Some women do get pregnancy symptoms very early so it is a possibility. ...Read more

I've also had nauseating lower/mid back pain from eating bananas.  My stomach cramps up. I can eat dried bananas no problem though...

Avoid bananas: If eating bananas gives you problems, avoid those. Nature has provided us with many other fruits. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

My wife got menstrual on 19th feb, we started regular sex from 26to5 (to concieve) now she is feeling abdomen cramps & pain. Is it sign of preganancy?

My wife got menstrual on 19th feb, we started regular sex from 26to5 (to concieve) now she is feeling abdomen cramps & pain. Is it sign of preganancy?

Not from this cycle: You had intercourse from cycle day 7 to cycle day 14. In a 28 cycle ovulation usually takes place on cycle day 14. Would only have conceived four days ago, so likely not pregnancy related symptoms from this cycle. Ovarian cysts or an abnormal pregnancy from last cycle should be ruled out. Call your doctor if pain significant or she now has a positive home pregnancy test. ...Read more
