Hello doctor,

I am trying to have baby. Actually, we started trying just last month. I think we timed it well during and before ovulation. I started feeling to have cramps after having sex. I never feel cramps at the time of ovulation. So, it was unusual. It used to increase when I stand for long. It was normal and not really uncomfortable. It was there for four days. Can it be cramps after conception? I felt tired for two days. My pelvic area also felt heavy. But, now I do not have any cramps. I think I feel bloated. I read online that all these could be early pregnancy signs. I thought it would take more time to get pregnant. Am I pregnant? I feel no more signs. Now I am in a week after my ovulation and a week before my expected periods. So, I cannot do pregnancy test. I am going crazy thinking that I might be misreading the signs. I am a pessimist, so do not want my hopes up. My age is 28 at present. Please guide.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Usually, it takes more time to have these symptoms.
  • Though you are right that these signs and symptoms are consistent with symptoms of early pregnancy, but it is unlikely to experience them so soon if you were actually pregnant. But do not lose hope, there are always exceptions.
  • It is possible that you are very sensitive and perceived them early.
  • Since you say your period is near, I suggest you to wait for a few more days and if your period gets delayed then confirm by doing a pregnancy test. All the best.
