Cramps during TWW?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Has anyone else ever experienced mild cramps each day during the TWW? Is this a symptom of some sort of hormonal disorder? We are scheduled for IVF in December due to tubal blockage and would hate to find out I have yet another issue AFTER the procedure....

Any info or feedback would be appreciated

Are you taking any hormone supplements or anything? I have been having daily cramping (like AF is coming) since I had an hCG shot on Sunday and it has continued into my TWW. I've read that the progesterone suppositories I'm taking can cause cramps like that.

From what I've read, early pregnancy often has all the same symptoms as AF.

Good luck!

Hi fran: I have not taken any hormone supplements...except now I am trying progesterone cream now to see if that stops the cramping. I stopped using the cream last summer when we first started TTC, so I could get an accurate saliva hormone test done. FWIW: When I triggered, I was really achey in the side of the shot, but no change in the cramps. Oh, I so pray that by sheer fluke I could be pg, but odds are not in our favor and we are prepared for IVF...
to you and yours!!!

Thanks, Tara! I'd be more excited if it wasn't happening each cycle:

I have mild cramping almost every month during the TWW. I think I read it is caused by progesterone?

Well, that might explain why they haven't gone away after starting progesterone! I'll post if I find more info...

I'm having cramping during 2WW too. Drives you nuts, doesn't it? I'll tell you at the end of the week whether this = pregnancy for me (!) Can't remember with DS.
