Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 28-year-old female. I have been having lower back pain and cramps for two days now, but my period is not due until a week and a half away. I have a regular 28-day cycle and I think I ovulated between the 18th and 23rd of this month. I have been having a little bit of upset stomach, but I think if I was pregnant it would be too soon to be having morning sickness. Is it possible to be having symptoms so soon?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I suggest you get an ultrasound done to rule out any abnormality. If your cycles are 28 days, then you ovulate around the day-14 of your cycle and not day-18 because the second phase of the cycle always remains constant at 14 days. If you had unprotected sexual act, then to detect pregnancy at the earliest, use RIA (radioimmunoassay) method in blood. It is done eight days post ovulation. I suggest taking tablet Pan-D (a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone) and tablet Normaxin (a combination of Chlordiazepoxide, Clidinium, and Dicyclomine) one tablet twice a day for three to four days. Add some probiotics two to three times a day to your diet.


Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
