Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
pain & cramping in the lower abdomen can be due to many causes ,in my view your pain & cramping is due to some infection ,not due to sex.So consult the gynec& get tested to find the cause & get it treated .Hb,TLC,DLC ,urine complete,& ultrasound of abdomen is required to find the cause.
Wish you good health

Hi, My wife had her periods fell on August 31 to September 3, but she has missed them on the expected dates (September 28 to October 1). We had intercourse between September 13 - 16. There might be high chance for her getting pregnant. However, she wants to abort, if such is the case. Do we have any home remedy for this? As it might be in very early stage, how can she abort safely, what are the chances of, if this early abortion has any ill effects and can cause difficulty in conceiving later on? Appreciate in advance.

Hi, I m 34 years old. I had a suction abortion for a failed pregnancy at 13 weeks (the foetus had stopped growing at 8). Since then, I have had non-stop spotting (often brown) and a period (bled for about a week) 27 days after the operation. At that point, I had an ultrasound which discovered retained products of conception. Today, I had operative hysteroscopy to remove the retained products, and during the operation they discovered a fibroid with a submucus portion, which they removed (just the submucus part). How long will I have to wait to try to conceive again?.

My daughter is a crohn's sufferer, diagnosed 12 months ago. She is on immunosuppressants and suffers repeat bladder infections. The crohn's itself is under control (we think) but today she is in pain again with an urgent need to pass water and there has been blood in her urine which has been absent with previous infections. She has mentioned her illness to doctors when getting treatment for "water infections" and they have been fairly dismissive of a link to crohns. The problem is we do not know what to expect if a flare-up occurs. Could this latest symptom (blood in her urine) be a symptom of flare-up or should we stop being concerned and assume it is another water/bladder infection? I would like her to go to A&E and get it checked but don't want to touble doctors unnecessarily.

I have had 3 c sections and since my last one 2 years ago I have had general discomfort in my lower mostly left abdomen. Lately I have had frequent urgent uncomfortable urination, with negative urine culture. Had renal ultrasound today that looked fairly normal I think. Wonder about scar tissue? Also I have ulcerative colitis but haven't had a serious flair in about 2 years.
