PMS Cramps

I was wondering how close to your period do most of you start feeling cramps and know that their AF is on the way?

Mine varies from a weeks to just a few days before

I start cramping about an hour after I start and it lasts for about 24 hours,...

  • Usually a week to a few days before. So far this time it will be 3 weeks on Mon. They arn't super bad just really annoying.

  • It varies. This month, I knew it was coming about a week before it got here, maybe a little more than a week. Some months it's just a couple of days, or even the same day. I've even had months where I didn't feel anything until after I started spotting.

  • Usually a day or two before. But since I have been on Yaz I rarely get any cramps, I just know how many days between the active pills and inactive pills that I get my period.
