Why does my back feel like it is cramping when i believe I am ovulating?

Normal chemicals: When you ovulate, it can create inflammation. Some women will feel that more in their back than their abdomen. It is not dangerous or bad for you. While it could represent other things going on in your abdomen or pelvis, if the only time it hurts is during ovulation, then it makes them far less likely. ...Read more

Near my ovulation time, i can feel  cramp like feeling. Is this a sign that I am about to ovulate?

Likely mittleschmerz: Many women feel small pains around ovulation, before-during-or after - its called mittleschmerz. There are some abnormal causes of pain around ovulation but most often it's normal. Individual women choose different words to describe it, you say 'cramp-like' - many in my practice describe 'pinging' or 'pinching.'. ...Read more

Usually no symptoms: There are no consistent documented symptoms for implantation of a pregnancy, probably because it is just a microscopic ball of cells attaching to the uterine lining. Some patients have reported, in retrospect, that they had a little bit of bleeding about that time. However, bleeding can occur with ovulation as well so it may be difficult to sort out the exact cause. ...Read more

I have had mild cramping that feels like my period is coming ever sense ovulation, took a pregnant test and it said negative. Could i still be pregnant?

Yes: If you haven't missed a period, it may be too early to determine if you are pregnant. When you miss your period, take a test and if it's still negative, then likely you're not pregnant unless your cycles are longer than 35 days. Mild cramping can be a sign of pre-menstruation, so it's often difficult to discern between the two. ...Read more

10 days past ovulation. Been feeling mild cramping and twinging but not bleeding. What's the possibility of pregnancy? Mild backaches, breasts and quite tender and heavy. I am due to start my cycle on the 20th and don't usually feel PMS like this

It : It is difficult to say until you go pass 16 days post-ovulation, at which time a urine pregnancy test may tell you if you are pregnant or not (if your period did not start). Your symptoms could be both premenstrual or pregnancy at this time in your cycle, and by waiting a few days it will sort itself out. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Agree it's normal: There are hormonal as well as architectural changes that occur after pregnancy and it sounds like that is what your body is going through. It's hard to say why it's happening. It may go away as well. ...Read more
