I had a full period but I'm still cramping??

Okay, so before I had my period, I was cramping a bit, and oddly shaking. I also had a bit of feeling of nausea. My period started very early, though. It was a FULL 4 day period, though. No blotting or anything (I am not sexualized, so I can't be pregnant.) Then, after my period was finished, which oddly didn't have as much cramping, I was still cramping. I went to the doctor and got a blood test done to see if anything was wrong with my blood, because my mother thought I might be low in something, and I haven't gotten the results for over 2 weeks, so I think if it was serious, I would have gotten my results back by now. I don't believe it is all that serious, but I really would like to know what is going on! :(

Hi Izzy,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Many things can be causing these changes such as hormonal changes, Endometriosis, ovarian cyst and many other. You might want to let your doctor know of the symptoms. He might suggest having imaging test done, such as an ultrasound. Hope this was helpful?

Hi Daisy,

Thank you, I will try that. I'm just kind of freaking out. I really hope it isn't something serious like an ovarian cyst! My friend had one of those. It was extremely painful.
