I get cramping 3-7 days after intercourse post ovulation period
I am 41 years old. I had one child at 35 and the other at 36. Since that time, I have been trying to conceive and have been unsuccessful.
I had one miscarriage after seven weeks (empty sac) at age 40.
One thing I have noticed is that I will get cramps (as if I am about to get my period) 3-7 days following intercourse (after I have ovulated). It seems as if I may have conceived but that my body is rejecting the egg from implanting by cramping up.
My OBGYN said my hormone levels are normal and that she has never heard of this type of symptom. She thinks that due to my age, my eggs are not able to fertilize as well, yet she says that clomid and hcg may help increase my chances of becoming pregnant. I want to try the Natpro yet I am worried that if my progesterone levels are normal, I will be taking too much and if I do get pregnant it can harm my baby.
What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
