  • No,they come and go not all the time. U need to call your doctor. I'm sure there is an answering service. U can also call an e.r. and ask a doctor about it.

  • I had them quite often yesterday but only a few times today. They were pretty painful but they can go one for awhile. Just make sure if you are having 5 or more in an hour to call your doctor or Labor and delivery.

  • Its constant. Like I haven't had any breaks or anything to count. It feels like something is pulling down there and slight cramping. It really feels like I am on my period again, just not as bad as my period are. Maybe like on the 3rd day of my period. Stomach is tight too.

  • I would probably go to the Labor and delivery then if it is like that. You could be starting preterm labor or have an infection.
