Menstrual cramps/no period
Hello-my first time to this wonderful site! My husband and I just started trying this month for our 2nd child. I was gone for 2 wks, but had unprotected sex both before and after I returned. I totally expected to have my period since I was gone for so long. I had just gotten off the pill before having my last period. So, I started having very bad menstrual cramps and "shocks" in my breasts 3 days ago. I kept running to the bathroom thinking I was going to start. Nothing. I have taken 3 HPT and all were negative. I have had no bleeding. This is to the T the only pregnancy symptoms I had with my son-bad cramps/no period and shocks in breasts. But, I think I waited longer to take a test last time. Also, last time I got off the pill I had a normal period..and I don't understand severe cramping with no period. Should I have waited longer to take the tests? I'm only 3 days late. I would appreciate any help :)

some people don't show up positive on a hpt the early wait a few more days and re test or go to the doctor and get a blood test done.

So you are in the same boat huh? I guess you're just as confused as me :)Well, I still have not started! It has been approx. 6 days since I was supposed to start AF. Still having mild cramping, but not as strong as it was the day I was supposed to start AF. All HPT are neg, but since I was out of town for 2 wks, I had to have been ovulating the first of last week-maybe that isn't enough time to show up. Does anyone know?

I'm in the same boat too! Cramping off and on - especially at night. Frequent urination and that's about it. I'm a few days late... Good Luck to us all!

It's so funny that you mentioned breast "shocks" I'm experience the EXACT same thing!!  lol with my first pregnancy I took 8 pregnancy test before one came out positive and I was 2 months prego!  I've taken 3 so far and all negative.. very frustrating!  Are you have increased discharge or anything like that too?

That is so Funny! We are wanting number four but I just got my cycle back with number 3 in sept (when she was 16 mos she is now 18 mos). I had one cycle that was prettty normal then a suoer crazy cycle with excessive bleeding like  I have never experienced in my life.  So I was expecting my cycle to stat on or about the 19th (being that my cycle has been between 27 and 31 days for as long as I have charted it).  Well on the 21st I got some pretty bad cramping and it went on for a couple of days straight.  My husband and I have been seperated for the last 5 months becasue we are active duty Army, but I was sure we missed my ovulation.  I thought implantation pain had to happen around or during ovulation?  I am not taking a pregnancy test becuase they have all come back negative with all 3 previous pregnancies until I was like a month pregnant and did the blood tests.  I am not 7 days late?  what is the verdict?

Okay here is the timeline. SinceI'm not sure of my menstrual cycle OR my ovulation cycle, me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex. I want a baby, he's neither here nor there. (But he would be thrilled because he loves kids so I'm making the decision for US) My period was over Nov. 31, we had UPS Dec. 1 and since then I've been getting these abnormal signals and symptoms. Since I've been through this before I try not to worry or over exert these symptoms because they just end in disappointment. But its really hard not to ignore whats going on. 1.For approx. 4 days now my boobs have been hurting soooo bad. I cant lay on my stomach because they hurt so much. 2. I have been having a lot of discharge, more than normal 3. A little nausea 4. A little insomnia 5. mild cramping and no period 6. headaches and backaches 7. the "feeling" that this could be it 8. and its three days before my period is due, and so far negative tests. Someone please help me know if Im just crazy or has someone else gone through this with a positive outcome. Im so excited. I want a little boy, lol.

Hi jujess2007

Some women don't show a positive till after AF.  Have you tried a First Response?  They are good at detecting hcg very very early.

All your symptoms are screaming out "PREGNANT" so I would not be surprised if you get a positive very soon.

Best of luck and let us know how you go!!

hey there i want 2 say first that i have been in your soes as far as thinking and 'feeling" like u really are pregnant, but when i was over a week late i got my period  and i was devistated! i got some really really good advice from a few other women that had the same thing happen to them, and they told me this..."dont stress on it just let it happen"
i kinda got mad at them when they said that 2 me cause i really wanted and felt prego, but after i had started my period i had realized what they were trying to tell me and they were right becAuse i had stressed out on it and wanted 2 be preggo, but i had every single preg sign there is and i was sure i was, ten i started bleeding so bad and was so upset i cried, now i am 2 days late again and i am not making the same mistake again, i am expecting my period but if im  preg then i wil celebrate when i find out, but we all kno this is such a hard thing wen we want a baby and that ovulation window is such a short time frame, sure wish we had a definate sign the moment we concieved,lol...best of luck to you and baby dust to you and all of us who want a new life!!!

UGH! ME TOO on these symptoms. I even had spotting at the midpoint (2 weeks after period) and thought it was implantation bleeding which is rare. I have been cramping all day and expecting my AF, but she is a no show. The test I took tonight came back BFN! : ( Not sure, thinking my period will make its way, but I have never had cramps this long without it showing. My cramps are in my back and very painful.

I am 34 and celibate. My cycle is normally clockwork, 28 days. I am cramping, irritable and bloated, and 4 days late. The PMS symptoms have been steady for 6 days. This *****. Not going to waste money on a pregnancy test, I am not sexually active. What gives?

I am having the same problem. My husband and I are trying for our first. We had sex at the time that I was ovulating (as indicated by a home ovulation test). Now my period is 8 days late, but I have had really bad cramping for the last 8 days. This morning, I woke up with severe abdominal pain-felt like menstrual cramping, but a million times worse. And I'm used to severe cramping with my periods each month. I was sweating and almost through up from the pain. Still no period. I've taken two pregnancy tests and both have been negative. I don't know what to think. I called my OB and she doesn't know what could cause the symptoms. So frustrating...

I've had both negative and positive results after the symptoms you are describing.  The first time I was poitive and the last time this happened I was negative and it turned out I had a Urinary tract infection (wasn't hurting wen I pee so didn't think of that)  I am now 5 days late and had cramping but no blood 10 days ago.  Still neg test.  I'm not getting excited this time what will be will be.  Good luck!
