Symptoms:  Cramping, lower back pain
Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. Your symptoms are indeed a cause for concern but there needs to be more evaluation in order to determine what is happening here. If you are sexually active, it is possible that you may be pregnant, and these symptoms you are experiencing are a result of this. Another possible cause is that you may have contracted a sexually transmitted infection, and as a result you may be experiencing symptoms of this. It would be best if you go to your doctor and have a pelvic examination performed along with a pregnancy test to assist determining with certainty what is causing your abdominal cramping.
