Is this the only time you're having cramps, two months in a row? In other words, for the last two months, you have ONLY had cramps 2 days after your period was totally over?

yes. for 2 months, every 2 days after my period i get cranps on the right side of lower abdomen. is this because of hormonal fluctuations? or mittelschmerz? [Confused]

i thinks it's too early for ovulation pains. i know im not pregnant now. I am very sure because you told me that ther's no way i can get pregnant by that but when i get post menstrual cramps i get scared. [Eek!]

thank you [Smile]

I am not going to be able to tell you why you are getting those cramps. But if you find it happenes often a few days after your period ends, I think it's likely it's about the end of your period. It may be some last contractions from your uterus, for instance.

With the charting, if you're going to do it, are you doing it daily now, not just sometimes? Have you gotten yourself a book to help explain all of this so that it's something useful for you, rather than -- which it seems like it might be to date -- someone to get you more worried?

yes. i am charting everyday now. i saw my cm became dry to absent-tacky to chouldy sticky then went back to dry! it didnt even go to ewcm. i read your FAM and understood it but why no ewcm? im scared because i dont want the trauma of having no period and thinking im pregnant even after 3 normal period.

It's possible to have cycles in which ovulation doesn't happen. Also, ovulation won't occur at exactly the same time each cycle. Given how short a time you've been charting, you really want to stick with it for a few months before making any predictions/assumptions about your cycle. A few days of cervical mucus really isn't going to tell you anything.

This article might help you get started with charting: Get With the Flow: All About FAM

But like Karybu said, I'd not put a whole lot of stock in it just yet, as you are only getting started and don't have much experience yet. It takes a while to get really good at figuring out what you're looking at.

Also, you've just had a period. Let's try and not worry about the next one just yet, okay? If and when your period is late, we can talk about that. But for now, you're doing just fine.

In the meantime, do you think you can maybe talk to your mother about how much pressure she is putting on you, and how stressed that makes you feel?

Scared, I would really encourage you to try and stop putting your body under the microscope like that and paying attention to every little change in your body. I understand that you are stressed and experiencing a lot of pressure, but you are only making it worse by watching yourself so closely and questioning yourself so much.

Please try to relax, okay? You've just had a period and you're obviously not pregnant.
