Can I take 1000mg of magnesium a day? It's 250% of my RDA. I want to take it daily for bad period cramping. Is it ok?

Can I take 1000mg of magnesium a day? It's 250% of my RDA. I want to take it daily for bad period cramping. Is it ok?

Yes, however...: There is no danger in taking too much magnesium (unless you have kidney failure). The only side effect you are likely to encounter is diarrhea/loose stools if you take more than you can absorb. If you take a well-absorbed form you may not need to take that much. I advise Magnesium glycinate or taurate for optimal absorption.

I am a 24yr old female with constant right side lower pain above hip. Feels like period cramping but 10x worse hurts to move what could it be?

PELVIC PAIN: Assuming you have no gastrointestinal symptoms, chronic diarrhea, etc. At your age, most likely related to an ovarian cyst, endometriosis, etc. Some patients can have "chronic appendicitis" but the pain is not constant. But recurrent.
Have to rule out a groin hernia or a hip problem.
A pelvic ultrasound, a good clinical exam and perhaps even a laparoscopy could help solve the issue. ...Read more

My cycles are usually 24/26 days long and my period lasts about 7 days. Had unprotected inter course the last dayof my period. Cramping ever since. 6d?

Probably normal: Each month when you ovulate, there is a cyst on one of your ovaries at least 2 CM in dia. That cyst starts to develope while you are having your period, and continues to enlarge until you ovulate - in your case about 10 or 12 days after your last period started. 14 days later, if you don't conceive, you will start your next period. That cyst may enlarge, up to 6 or 8 CM and may cause your cramps. ...Read more

On pill. Took 2 pills late, late in cycle. Always use condom. Had light brown lighter discharge for 3 days instead of period. Cramping.???

Unlikely pregnancy: Since you use condoms regularly, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. It is more likely that you caused the abnormal bleeding pattern by missing your pills then taking them in late cycle. Just continue with your next pill pack as scheduled and try to remember to take the pills consistently. ...Read more

Took my iud out jan 5 after only 6m had period few days later. Now feb 20, no period, cramping, clear sticky discharge. Pregnant? Test negative.

IUD Removal: There are several factors we need to consider here that are unknown. Was this a copper or hormone containing IUD. Did you have intercourse at the correct time to become pregnant and were your periods regular before removal. If you had a Mirena (levonorgestrel) your periods may be irregular for months. Paraguard would have no effect. You may have done the test too early, repeat it in 4-5 days. ...Read more

So I've been cramping for two weeks no period, cramping off and on still no period.....can't remember the start of my last cycle could I be pregnant?

So I've been cramping for two weeks no period, cramping off and on still no period.....can't remember the start of my last cycle could I be pregnant?

Hard to guess: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 1 week after starting a "weird" period, or 1 week after missing a period. ...Read more
