I have had been having lower stomach pains similar to menstrual cramps (only much less severe) but I'm not on my period. So, I asked my mom and she said I was ovulating, which sounds just about right from what she told me, (the time it would happen, what it feels like, etc) except for it has lasted for at least a week and a half (she said it should only last about 4 days). It is accompanied with bloating and a little gas. This condition is uncomfortable at MOST. But I'm just a little concerned because the symptoms are so new, and persistent. Does anyone have any idea?
