Cramping is a common symptom of pregnancy, but yeah! It is too early to test. You should test two weeks from time of ovulation (usually at the time you'd have your period).

I've been having cramping where my leg meets my groin as well, but I haven't had sex and am on the pill. That could just be a muscle. I have been massaging my shin and it seems to be going away. It hurt to push on it a week ago and now it doesn't. You could have just injured your leg. If that is a side of pregnancy then I am in trouble! But I haven't really heard of that area hurting with a pregnancy. My leg has also been killing me. I don't have any other symptoms, like you do though. When are you do for your period? If you are late, you can test now. If not, wait a few days.

I wouldn't test yet. I would wait for your period if I were you. Why waste money on a test when it's too soon and you haven't even missed your period yet? The symptoms could be psychosomatic if you are really wanting to be pregnant. Nausea normally doesn't set in until much later in a pregnancy, not before you're even late. The pain in your groin and stuff has me freaked out too. I was researching it for days and found that some women do have it. I am on the pill though and have no had sex in 2 months and took a test after my last withdrawal bleed. My ankle also hurts though. The only things it seems it could be that would have to do with pregnancy are round ligament pain, but that usually doesn't start until much later. Every time a women says she has it though, it also feels just like mine. So I don't know. Mine has been there for a week and I am due for my withdrawal bleed Friday. I think I most likely just pulled something since it hurts so far down my leg the worst. It also hurt mine to push on it for a few days. Does your hurts to do that?

no...my doesn't hurt pushing on it....it feel like a mense cramp for me...like you said my mind could be playing with me.  I also have heard of people said the cramps like that is one the of the early signs of pregnancy.  I dont think that you would be pregnant because you haven't been sexually active unless you had sex prior to the 2 months.  I also heard that you could be pregnant while still bleeding, I know a gal that was two month pregnant and was having montly AF.  How long have you been on the pills? HOPE I"M NOT FREAKING YOU OUT MORE.

You are lol. I have been on the pills for 4 months. We use condoms too. I had a withdrawal bleed on November 7th (5 days, heavy, cramps.) I took a test anyway and it was negative. I'm also only 114 pounds...I would know if I was 2 months pregnant. Mine doesn't feel like a menstrual cramp...just like a pulled muscle. I did have sex prior to my last withdrawal bleed, but like I said...we used condoms too. The only thing we did this month was take a shower together and I am afraid of the fact that maybe his penis touched me or something. I know it sounds crazy. My boyfriend thinks I'm nuts. I have OCD though and worry every month. Pregnant women can bleed, but not on the pill.  The rising levels of progesterone in pregnancy would cancel out the drop in progesterone from stopping the pill. It's a fact. If that wasn't true, women would have to take a test every month while on the pill. There would be no point. The drop in progesterone when taking the pill is what causes a monthly bleed. Your friend, sorry, but could not be knowing what she is talking about. You cannot physically have a period while pregnant. The baby would die. You can have light bleeding, but heavy bleeding, clotting, and cramps would be a miscarriage. A period is getting rid of the tissue in your body and a baby would not be able to sustain of there was no tissue for the baby to stay implanted into. Also, like i said, being on the pill is totally different. I don't think I could get pregnant from what we did this month. I just don't think it's humanly possible, but I freak out every month. My pain is also more in my leg than my groin. It started in my groin and felt bruised to push on it, and now it's more my shin and ankle. The only pain in your groin like that would be round ligament pain. It usually doesn't happen until the middle of pregnancy (hence why people still say it's early pregnancy) and before your period is pretty much just not going to happen. It happens from your uterus stretching to accommodate the baby. Your uterus stretching so much that you could feel it this soon is crazy. Mine happened less than a week after the incident. If I did ovulate, which I shouldn't have, the egg probably wasn't even implanted yet, so it would be really weird to feel pain that soon. And your mind could be playing tricks, yes. If you are wanting a baby very bad, your mind will make symptoms. I don't want a baby and I get "symptoms" every month. I even have to keep a journal because I get so freaked out every month. If I am pregnant from just taking a shower, not having sex, and being on the pill...that would be a miracle. I have no pregnancy symptoms and am due for my withdrawal bleed Friday. I'm pretty sure I'll start, but am of course still scared.

LOL....everyone's body is different so you may experience different early pregnancy signs.  You're right about the uterus stretching when you are farther along that will cause some discomfort but other ladies have had cramps as early signs.  My first preganancy which ended in miscarriage, I have no symptons except for sore breast, nothing like this.

Yeah, cramps I can see...but I don't have those. I had cramps yesterday, but had written down last month that I had them the day before my last placebo pill and that was yesterday...so it's normal for me. About the groin pain and stuff. When I don't think about it, it goes away. It is more my leg than anything. Last night I stood up and had a really really sharp pain in the back of my ankle. It hurt to put my foot flat on the ground. So i think my pain is all stemming from my ankle. Normal cramps are normal, like period cramps, but pain where your leg meets is not normally where you have menstrual cramps. I stopped worrying about mine because it's more my leg than my groin. It felt bruised in my groin for about 3 days, then moved to my shin and ankle. I looked up the ankle and it said if you hurt it, it could show up in your groin as well. i think my lymph nodes were swollen from injury to my ankle and that was causing the groin pain.

But yes, cramps are normal, but I don't think the side, in between your leg is normal. It is probably unrelated to pregnancy or could be a tubal pregnancy. Mine is for sure not cramps, just a burning sensation at the top of my sometimes and my ankle hurts. It could even be pinched nerve or from wearing tennis shoes and switching to flat boots last week. There are a lot of reasons for mine. Plus, from taking a shower? Would that really result in pregnancy even if I wasn't on the pill? It just seems dumb, but still scary. If I get pregnant without sex I will freak. Do you think I'm just over-reacting and focusing too much on little pains that might be a symptom? I mean, they don't say leg pain as part of the symptoms to look out for. I don't have any other symptoms and feel fine. I really wish I could stop worrying all the time. :(
