Dr. Timothy Brown answered:

Why do I get mild menstrual cramps approx 5 days after my menstrual period is finished every month? Does it mean I'm ovulating?

Likely

Menstrual_pain
The timing and the symptoms are right. When a mature egg is expelled from the ovary at ovulation, this represents the rupture of a small cyst which can be transiently irritating.

Dr. Barbara Toppin answered:

Is it ok to use hot water bottles for menstrual period cramps?

Depends

Water
Hot water bottles in general are a fine method of dealing with menstrual cramps for those who cannot or don't want to take medication. Make sure the bottle is covered to avoid burning the skin. If cramping is becoming worse over time consult your MD

Severe unbearable pain during menstrual period. Hot, sweating, cramps, chills, shaking, constipation, back ache, etc. Etc. Any Suggestions???

Dysmenorrhea

Heating_pad
NSAID’s, SSRI’s, hormone meds, OTC meds containing diuretics, warm bath, heating pad, exercise & acupuncture are excellent for dysmenorrhea. Avoid caffeine, chocolate, alcohol & salt. Get GYN eval to R/O underlying pathology. Consider omega- 3 fatty acids, magnesium (supplementation or through diet) or Black Cohosh with dr ok. Sipping Chamomile & Green tea can dissipate pain.

What does it mean to have cramps off and on a week before your period & tender heavy breast. Could this mean pregnancy?

Not really but

Sore
You can always simply check a home test. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection.
