Hello,
Stomach cramps before or during a period is very commonly seen.Although diarrhea has no direct connection here,sometimes it is seen as part of the pre menstrual syndrome in extreme cases.The stomach cramps are also seen with diarrhea if you have a GI infection.In that case,you will need antibiotics.Take a pregnancy test only if you have missed your period.Since you have a 35 day cycle,then you should be getting it now already or soon.If you dont get it within this week,take a test.
