Could you be pregnant?

Did you have a CS? Sometimes it hurts around the scar.
Also I have been known to have 2 weeks between periods, you might have one coming again.
Ovulation pains?

Not that helpful!
If you are concerned get yourself checked.
When was your last smear?

Thanks for replys. I did have a cs years ago and i do get pain around it bit very different to what i have now. Have sex so in theory could be pregnant - to early for symptoms tho surely? Last smear 4 yrs ago,never been anything untoward.

Is it ovulation pain? I used to get a few twinges and sometimes spotting about 20 days after my period (I have a long cycle -35 days, so ovulate around day 21) and ovulation pain feels just the same as period pain really, but less intense. If your cycle is around 28 days two weeks would be about right for it to be ovulation.

Not sure - been getting it for a week now. i've had ovulation pain before but thats a sharper pain and soon goes, this is a dull, crampy ache in my lower back and i've had it for a week now.

Shhhhhh JTGK! My husband would have a bloody fit if i was pg (thats a whole other thread tho!) Seriously,it's got to be far too early for pg symptoms....

Urinary tract infection?

With DD2 I had pregnancy symptoms a few days after conception wink knew for sure after a week and had to wait 2 more to be able to POAS. I would have told you it was too early too.

There are a couple of threads running on this topic at the moment.. have a look here

Nothing to do with your symptoms...if you're over 25 and under 50 then you should be due to be called for screening if you're in the UK.
The letter usually comes from a central office for your area but is dependent on you being registered with a GP. If you've moved since your last test and haven't updated your address with the practice, then the screening invitation letter may have gone to your old address.
Just wanted to highlight that in case anyone's waiting to be called and thinks it's over 3 years (25-49) or 5 years (50-65) since their last test.
