Pms cramps are lighter and different this month. Also having pain below my ribs. Never had sex so pregnancy unlikely. What is causing this?

Your history of no: sex is helpful in ruling out many pregnancy related problems that could cause this. Most commonly it due to a little more bleeding than normal when you ovulated. If it gets worse or you have nausea or vomiting, it could be from your GI tract(like gall bladder or appendicitis) and you would need to see a doctor ...Read more

Every month on pms I only ever feel my cramps on the right side never the left, thought ovaries takes turns releasing an egg, left and right?

Pms pain: plenty of GYN symptoms that science cannot explain, but if always related to your cycle then surely it is menstruation related. Ever took contraceptive pills? then you may not have pain on the menstruation at end of the pill cycle as the bleeding is not from the ovary cycle and also there is no ovulation. Hope tylenol-motrin helps your pain ...Read more

I am trying to conceive from last month 15 days before my due date i felt cramps like PMS vomited 2 or 3 time but had my periods on time ?

Trying 2 conceive: Could you clarify your question? Ur periods have all come on time. What do you mean by due date? The date you expect your period? If you have regular periods and a 28 day cycle, you're mostly likely to conceive on the day you ovulate - day 14 (with day 1 as the 1st day of your period), followed by the two days that preceed day 14 and the 2 days that follow. See your ob 2 discuss pregnancy planning ...Read more

Period was due yesterday. Not usually late only once befor last month- wasn't preg. Ttc, sore boobs, slight cramps but not as much as usual pms. Preg?

Could be either: There is a lot of overlap between premenstrual symptoms and early pregnancy symptoms. Even light bleeding around the time of an expected period can occur with pregnancy. A home pregnancy test and/or a blood test at your doctors office may help clear things up. After testing, if you are pregnant or still have unexplained symptoms consult your doctor. ...Read more

Period late 1.5 months. (not active) now spotting/brownish discharge but still no period. No cramps, or pms. Can it be my iron pills? Or what else?

If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test .

Started eating healthy and cut out a lot of junk food. Also started taking vitamins 4 months ago. My period hasn't come since than? Still pms/cramps

Many possibilities: Congratulations on improving your diet and taking vitamins; this can only help your health in the long run. I can not imagine any way that would cause irregular periods so this is a coincidence. There are many possible causes including thyroid imbalances, stress & pregnancy. See a good doctor, preferably with a holistic approach.

I have PMS synptoms a lot of bloating slight cramps sometimes, back ache. No period for 3  months very irregular ttc 2 years?

Evaluation: Sounds like your hormones are fluctuating, but not as they should. Either you are not ovulating, or something may be blocking the period from coming out. If it has been 2 years of trying to conceive, you should see a fertility specialist since that is most likely related to the change over the last 3 months of no periods. ...Read more

I had the Mirena udi inserted 13 months ago while the dr did my c-section. since then I have bleed between 14 & 21 days per cycle. Extreme cramps,and pms symptoms & smelly discharge elevated anxiety and depression. Is this normal?

I had the Mirena udi inserted 13 months ago while the dr did my c-section. since then I have bleed between 14 & 21 days per cycle. Extreme cramps,and pms symptoms & smelly discharge elevated anxiety and depression. Is this normal?

No Not Normal: The Mirena IUD is a very safe highly effective contraceptive option, and is also indicated to improve heavy menstrual bleeding. It can take 3 - 6 months for bleeding to improve, but by then 95% of women note significantly reduced menstrual bleeding, and 24%+ become amenorrheic (no periods at all). Your symptoms are definitely not normal. See a Clinician who deals with IUDs asap to see if in place ...Read more
