I am currently in my 5th week of pregnancy and I have been experiencing cramps that feel similar to menstrual cramps. Is this a normal symptom during early pregnancy? Should I be concerned?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

It is not uncommon for women to experience cramping during early pregnancy, especially around the time when their period would normally occur. These cramps are often mild and can be attributed to the uterus stretching and expanding as the embryo implants itself into the uterine lining. However, if you are experiencing severe or persistent cramping accompanied by heavy bleeding or other concerning symptoms, it is important to consult with your healthcare provider. They will be able to assess your individual situation and provide appropriate guidance and support. Remember, every pregnancy is unique, so it's always best to seek professional advice if you have any concerns or questions about your specific symptoms.

I can feel them too. my doctor said that it's normal if I feel the pain located in the ovary, but if it's under my belly, I should take a no spa.
