Question Posted Monday July 7 2008, 11:48 pm

What do cramps feel like? How do you know when you have them? Are they just like a normal stomach ache?
I'm really curious about whether I have them or not. I don't know what they feel like since I've never gotten my period. I've been having weird stomach pains in the area level with my belly-button. I'd always thought cramps were supposed to be below your belly button...?
Thank you!

If it doesn't feel like a normal stomach pain, then it could be cramps. Most of the time, you'll know when you have cramps because you will literally want to die. And yes, it's normally below the belly-button.

Cramps before your period are usually below your belly button. But every girl's body works differently.

Check to see if you have other signs of PMS.

Emotional and behavioral symptoms:
Tension or anxiety
Depressed mood
Crying spells
Mood swings and irritability or anger
Appetite changes and food cravings
Trouble falling asleep (insomnia)
Social withdrawal
Poor concentration

Physical signs and symptoms:
Joint or muscle pain
Weight gain from fluid retention
Abdominal bloating
Breast tenderness
Acne flare-ups
Constipation or diarrhea.

yes usually cramps are below your bellybutton but they don't have to be. its kindof burny lol. its kindof a hard to describe, but you would be having them either right before or during your period. if you got them really bad you would know otherwise it might be hard to tell. i get them like so bad sometimes i'm screaming. :/ its not fun. i hope i answered your question

Well, actually cramps are different for every girl. Some have it WAY worse than others. Mine were so bad that I needed medication to make them lighter so it would be less painful. But for me, the pain can go to the middle of my thighs, my whole stomach, my sides, and pretty much that whole area is in pain from all the things my body goes through, my friends and I both have that, but I have met some girls that barely get any pain at all. It could be cramps even though the pain is at the area of your belly button. I think the only way you'll know for sure is if you end up getting your period sometimes soon. You can PMS(Premenstrual Syndrome) which is the pain before you get the actual period. But you should probably only PMS about 2 weeks before it happens. Other wise it may be something else. But, I could also be totally wrong, and you can always see what other girls on here say. I hope this helps a little.
