menstrual cramps mid cycle??

sometimes during mid cycle i get mild menstrual cramps.
what does this mean? it happends about 2 weeks after the first day of my period, there is no spotting at all just a dull achy cramp, my temp right now it 98.6 a few days ago it was 97.2. could after ovulation give cramps or could it be very early pregnancy??
(we use spermacide as a contraception)

Re: menstrual cramps mid cycle??

Foofighter-I have been off BCP for 4 months and am trying to get pregnant. I have noticed that during ovulation I have some pain. It's not bad...kind of like twinges, although sometimes feels like mild cramps. I read your post on the pregnancy board, too, about spermicide. Sorry, i can't answer that. I've only tries it once and it irritated me too bad. Let us know what happens.

It could very easily be ovulation pains. I often have those.

ok this may sound yucky but just now a hunk (ew sorry) of discharge came out with a slight hint of brown too it. not really like spotting a little lighter in color.
i seem to remember reading that when the egg drops there may be spotting but i cant remember if its when its being fertilized or just from being released.

Re: menstrual cramps mid cycle??

The cramping is very normal mid-cycle; I usually have that and it's not unusual to have spotting also due to the abrupt rise in estrogen. As far as a sign of pregnancy, bleeding or spotting can take place about a week after ovulation or three weeks into your cycle (that is if you're a regular 28-day woman) and the fertilized egg implants into your uterus; called implantation bleeding. I've been pregnant twice and that's never happened to me, but with my second baby, I had horrible menstrual cramps about the time I was due for my period when in all actuality, I was pregnant but only a few days late. You'll probably just have to take a pregnancy test if your period doesn't come, just to be sure.
