Why am I cramping mid cycle?

The first day of my last period was July 30. About two weeks later I started having mild cramping and a dull ache in my uterus. I also feel pressure when having sex. I am actively trying to get pregnant. What could possibly be causing this pain? It has been over 1 week that the cramping started. I am not due for my period for another week according to my 28 day cycle and have not experiencd this before. Please help.

Hi Anon,

Thanks for your question! Sometimes, mid-cycle, if you feel a bit of cramping or an achy feeling in your uterus-- that could mean you're ovulating! This is a good time to have unprotected sex! You can also feel a certain crampy feeling after you have conceived when your body is working hard to make a perfect little baby.

Good Luck TTC! Please keep us posted next month :)
