I had my period about two weeks ago but I'm still experiencing cramps in my lower back and stomach. What does that mean?

Usually two weeks prior to period ovulation occurs, I think approx 20% of us ladies experience mild moderate to severe pain of what feels like menstrual cramps , usually on one side meaning the side of ovary which is releasing the egg, symptoms are pain, cramp, headaches nausea

So not really a sign of pregnancy but possibly a sign of ovulation meaning these are you more fertile days out the month.

You should consult your doctor if you are experiencing severe pain as mild to moderate indicates ovulation , severe pain could be a symptom needing investigating further.

Hope this helps to enlighten some of your queries

Same here. Period like cramping without blood AF due on 16th or 18th.
Back pains constipated an pukey feeling. Breasts are slightly tender.

Hello i was wandering if anyone could give me some advice, im not due on for just over a week. My lower back and left side of my belly has been hurting for 3 days. Feels like its stretching, pulled a muscle, my belly feels tight. I havent been on anything for 4 years, but no luck of pregnancy. The downfall is i have polycystic ovary and wandered if that could be the cause of my pain?
