Hi gals,

For a long while now I'll have menstrual type cramping even when I am not having my period. It can be off and on all month long. (I've been on Yasmin BC pills for 3 1/2 years now). Any ideas of why this might be happening? It never used to be like that. I suppose I should go see a gyno, but would like to get some opinions from you all. TIA! http://community.icompact.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I don't have cramping on and off all month, but I do get cramping about mid-month for a day or so. I can usually tell when I'm ovulating because it'll feel like the cramps are more concentrated on one side. It's kinda weird. http://community.icompact.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif LOL. Sorry, I know this wasn't any help.

First of all you should really get yourself to a gyno. Second of all I used to suffer from the exact same thing about three years back. I was always in constant pain til I finally decided to go to the gyno. Not to scare you, but it turns out I had ovarian cysts. Then again that was just me and it might not be as serious in your case. Either way the only way you'll have peace of mind is if you see the doctor http://community.icompact.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Could be that you are low on calcium/magnesium. Do you eat a lot of sugary foods? Sugar depletes the body of calcium. I used to get really bad cramps til I took extra calcuim and stopped with the sweet stuff. Calcium citrate is more easily absorbed.

Same thing happened to me.. but it was only a week. Turned out to be, they think, the stomach flu.. It went away.

I had the same thing happen to me and I am now under observation with possible hystorectomy in my future at barely 26.

Go, go, go !!!
