    it's impossible to tell which it is.

    It's possible you could get pregnant at any time during your cycle.

    and the pain you describe actually doesn't sound like your typical ovulation or implantation pain, but you never know.

    It could be digestive problems you are having - a lot of times these types of cramps can be in the same region as your female cramping.... Especially since it hurts more when you cough.

    If your stomach pain doesn't go away in a day or two, you should go to the doctor to get it checked out.

    If it does go away, then just wait and see if AF comes. If she doesn't than take a hpt after about a week and/or make a doctor's appointment.

    Good luck!
