Doctor

A:   It is difficult for me to say whether you are pregnant or not based on your symptoms alone. The best way for you to find out is to do a home pregnancy test the day you miss your period. However, I do not think that your symptoms of lower abdominal pain and leg cramps are related to pregnancy. This pain could be due to menstrual cramps or may signify an underlying infection. I would suggest that you see your doctor if the pain gets worse or if you develop a fever.
