Contractions when not pregnant?

Ok, so I haven't been pregnant for over 2 yrs now, however, I still get contractions. Yes, contractions. I had both kids au naturale so believe me, I know what they feel like! I'm doubled over in pain and can't catch my breath and it feels like I should be popping a kid out or something. They don't last long and I can't place their timing on any particular day of my cycle, but they hurt like a S.O.B! : ) Any thoughts?

  • Have you been to an OB/GYN?? You could have a cyst on an ovary, or in your uterus, or something could have happened during delivery. You need to go see a doctor about that asap. They should do an ultrasound, or send you for an HSG or something. That's not right.

  • Any kind of abnormal pain should be checked out. It also could be endometriosis, fibroids, tumors, cysts. So many different things. During delivery, you could have even ended up with an infection, and that's what it is. I'm sorry, I'm just weird about down there. I still want more babies, so I'm very protective of my woman parts!!!

  • due to the timing not lining up well with the cycle I ruled out endometriosis, however, I will look into the possibility of a cyst, my mom had one so I'm predisposed to the possibility too. Thank you for the input!
