I am getting brown stool and mild cramps after period. Am i pregnant ?

Hi Doctor!! I am trying to concieve and its just 5 days past my ovulation period. My stool is brown in colour since yesterday and I had loose motion today. Could this be an early sign of pregnancy or some other problem? I had regular home cooked food and not feeling tired. Also had slight cramps yesterday.

Hii mam,
These are not feature of early pregnancy.
Missed period with morning sickness are the earliest sign.
Loose motion may be due to Acute Gastroenteritis.
Drink plenty of fluid and take home made diet.
You may take Tab Metrogyl 400 Tds for 3-4 days.
Take rest and sleep well.
All the best.

Hi welcome to healthcaremagic Forum

you have just passed 5 days of ovulation., this doesn't indicate pregnancy.. Amenorrhea is the first sign of pregnancy.. UPT ( urine pregnancy test ) is the test done to detect pregnancy.. it is an antigen-antibody test.. it will be positive minimum 3 days after conception... finally you must confirm the pregnancy by USG scanning. there are many reasons for dark brownish stools.. but loose motion or brown motion is nor related to pregnancy..

Hi. I m roughly 7 weeks pregnant and experiencing BAD cramps . I don t know if their normal, but sometimes I have to completely stop what I m doing and just cry, that s how bad and sudden the cramps come on. I constantly feel nauseous, but hardly ever actually get sick. And if I do get sick, it s what I just ate. Keeping food down is such a challenge. I m constipated, so another question is can I take stool softners while pregnant? I scare myself into researching miscarriages, and now I m terrified I m having one or already did and just don t know it yet. Am I gonna have to wait till I can hear the heartbeat to know if I did miscarry or not? Or would I start a period? Another thing is how weak I feel. I can t stand up for more than 20 minutes without my knees feeling like their gonna give out and my calves cramping. Is any of this normal? Should I be in this much pain??
