Smelly Gas During Ovulation
Had sex during ovulation. 6 days later I have backaches and mild cramps. Gassy and gas pains. Bloated. Could I be pregnant?
I'm pretty sure I had sex during my ovulation period (dec.30-1). It is now january 7th and I have been experiencing mild cramping, bloating, and gas since the 5th. Is it to early for pms? Pregnant?
What do you know?: "What you know" will give you the answer. For example, if a woman knows her LMP (the start of her last period) and she knows she ovulates later than 2 weeks after that, then her estimated date of conception will be more than 2 weeks after her LMP. If she knows her ovulation date but not her LMP, then yes we simply label whatever day is 2 weeks before her ovulation as the start of her pregnancy. ...Read more

If blood test says ovulated day 21 of 28 day cycle, when estimating the fa from an u/s wld I only subtract 7 dys from the ga instead of 14? Pls help!
No. Still use 14.: If the estimated gestational age is only from an ultrasound dating scan, that result already added in the 2 weeks from LMP to conception. That means the estimated conception date is always 2 weeks after the estimated last menstrual period date given by the ultrasound scan. The reason is: if the gestational age estimate is from the ultrasound scan alone, the calculations ignore the blood test. ...Read more
Normal: It's normal to have these symptoms after ovulation. They likely are due to the hormonal changes that occur in your cycle. Whereas estrogen predominates the first 1/2 of the cycle, Progesterone dominates the 2nd 1/2 and Progesterone causes the bowel to slow down, and causing increased gas production/bloating. Cramping can also be due to physical effects of egg leaving the ovary. ...Read more

cervical mucous, and some women actually have a painful sensation or "mittelschmerz" when they ovulate. In general though, if you

Cramps maybe: Some cramps with ovulation are common but not gas or bloating. Those are signs of progesterone, characteristic of CD-20 or later.

Clomid (clomiphene) - (OHSS): Start with a pregnancy test. I assume that you had a complete infertility work up by your fertility physician to rule out other causes of infertility. Clomid (clomiphene) is a selective estrogen receptor modulator that increases production of hormones that stimulate ovulation by inhibiting negative feedback on the hypothalamus. You mention ‘gas’ makes me think about potential side effects of clomid/ (ohss). ...Read more
