    Default Cramps AFTER my period?

    I have been getting bad cramps AFTER my period as well as before. Does anyone else have that or know why?

    Also, I have a silly question. Can you ovulate without starting your period (not being pregnant) and can you have a period without ovulating? Just wondering.... Sometimes I feel like I am ovulating and I don't start. Without any medicine I've gone from 3 to 9 months with no period, but I still get the cramps and PMS.

    Default Re: Cramps AFTER my period?

    Count me in! I usually have cramps for a few days after Aunt Flo goes away. I've had that for about a year now. It could be PCOS related, or it could be related to my uterine polyps and endometriosis. I should ask my ob/gyn when I see him next week.

    You can definitely have a period without ovulating. BPC stop ovulation and generally speaking you get your period when on BCPs. When I was on BCP (I'm on them again, rats!) I didn't ovulate because the BCP kept me from ovulating (that was after all, their job) but I did get periods every month. Not light ones either, real 5 day long periods that got worse towards the end and got much worse when i stopped taking BCP.
