Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.
It's hard to know what it means without an exam. Since you're only 4 weeks pp, it's probably likely to be related to your recent pregnancy. Possibly there is a small piece of placenta that is still inside, or your uterus is just cramping some as it shrinks back down.
If an STD is a possibility, I would get checked for that, since and STD can cause cramping and discomfort.
Implantation cramping is a very remote possibility, especially because pregnancy is such a remote possibility only 4 weeks pp.
If the cramping continues or gets more severe, I would see your doctor for an exam.

Could that result in pregnancy even though I just had a baby a month ago?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago
As I said, pregnancy is a very remote possibility. It's not impossible, but it's highly unlikely so soon after delivery.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
