Is stomach cramp symptom of pregnancy?

I had unprotected sex two days ago. It wasn't for a long time. Maybe 10 to 20 seconds. If even that. I had my period on the 9-14. I'm just having a weird feeling in my lower stomach. Like a light cramp/pain. Is this a sign I could be pregnant? Or just hurting because its the second time I've ever had sex?

stomach cramps( pain) can be due to early pregnancy but they can happen in lot of other conditions like premenstrual cramps, gastritis, gastroenteritis or urinary tract infection

please mention clearly ur date of being intimate & date with month of getting this periods & also last month periods

did u get periods this time after sexual contact
if yes were they on expected time & were they normal in flow

if u had periods after sexual intimacy on expected time ( means they were not delayed ) & if they were normal in flow as always, u r not pregnant
testing is not required

if above is not the case with you please get home urine pregnancy test with first morning urine sample .
blood test ( bhcg ) can help if in doubt

hope this helps you

hello, i had protected sex with my boyfriend and i am currently on the pill. I am 24 yrs old and i went on the pill to regulate my hormones, as i experienced false pregnancy symptoms. One of the signs of pregnancy that I have read was cramping which would resemble menstrual cramps. Normally I have cramps as a sign that my period is on its way. Is it possible that i may be pregnant?

I had ringing in my right ear last night. I woke up this morning and I can t hear from my right ear. My physician friend looked this am and said I had a retracted tympanic membrane. I tried nasosynephrine spray and lying on my right side to see if it would drain in my eustachian tube but I got no relief. He called in some high dose steroids and an antiviral and said I should get an MRI and see an ENT. What do you think?

Hi, I am a 30 year old male. Last night I was bending over and lifting up a heavy object when I felt a popping sensation in the left side of my head. Shortly after I got a throbbing sharp pain in the area I felt the pop, almost like a concentrated headache in that area. I slept on it and woke up to the same pain, and it doesn t seem to be going away.

I delivered my last child on August 31, 2010. Eight weeks after, I had my post-partum check up and had an IUD inserted. By the end November 2010, I started noticing a pain in my left flank area. It was a dull aching pain, but when massaged deeply, would go down my back, wrap around the front of my hip and make the front of my leg go numb. I went to the chiropractor for about two months, then with no results, visited my primary doctor. Blood and urine tests were fine. MRI showed slight bulging in the RIGHT L5, S1 discs. Went to 25 physical therapy visits with still no relief. I gave up for a while on finding out what was wrong. By February 2012 (guessing), I had my Mirena pulled out by my OBGYN. I had been having lots of stomach pain and my husband had a vasectomy, so I really didn t need the birth control anymore anyway. By October 2012, I believe, I had an ultrasound because I was having lots of pain and cramping in my stomach. Results were normal. By then end of 2012, I was experiencing extreme fatigue and visited my new primary doctor. We tried different antidepressants until I stayed on Effexor XR beginning April 2013. I started seeing a massage therapist once a week beginning in probably August of 2013 for my back, with no relief at all. Extreme fatigue continued and after blood work kept coming back fine, he sent me to a cardiologist. In November 2013 I was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). I was put on 5mg of Midodrine 3 times a day. My fatigue disappeared almost immediately. The pain in my back has always been there since November of 2010, but I was ready to try again since I was seeing a new primary doctor. He sent me to a pain management doctor who has now done 3 nerve injections, all with no relief from the flank pain (Deep massage did not seem to bother and make the front of my leg go numb though). Another MRI was ordered, and this one had the same results as the first, except I had a mild dehydration on the left side at L4,L5. My primary doctor still did not believe it was the cause for my flank pain, so he ordered a CT. Those results came back this week showing I had a swollen uterus. Since I am up do date with my pap smears and I had an ultrasound that showed nothing about 18 months prior, he does not believe this is the reason for the left flank pain either. I am completely at a loss and don t know what to do next. The pain management doctor said that it could be from the POTS. It has been going on for so long now that want to go down every avenue and rule everything else out before I just accept it as a POTS symptom. Sometimes when lying on my stomach, it seems to relive a little bit of the flank pain. The massage has just been aggravating it lately, and also laying on my right side seems to aggravate it. Since I can pinpoint when the pain started, I ve wondered if it could have had something to do with my last delivery or even the epidural from the delivery. I could use any insight or ideas that could maybe trigger an idea for my primary doctor. It has been almost 4 years since I realized the pain starting (and I have a high pain tolerance, so it could have been there for longer). I know this is a lot of information, but thank you in advance!
