Question: Menstrual Cramps when not menstruating
|linnyloo - Sun Aug 02, 2009 5:34 pm||
I am having cramps that feel like menstural cramps; however, I am not menstruating and am not supposed to for another 2 weeks.
I am taking the same birth control pill that I have been taking for more than a year and have never had this problem before until the last few months this seems to be a normal thing. Usually ibruprofen takes care of it, but I was just wondering what could be causing these "random" cramps.

Some women cramp with ovulation and this can be intermittent. It is also possible to experience cramping with a urinary tract infection or bowel activity. You should be able to ride it out for a while and if it does not resolve, see your doctor.
