pain in lower abdomen

A: Do you have any other symptoms like fever, chills, nausea or vomiting? When was the last time you had a bowel movement.
The most common cause is constipation. If you have accompanying fever or diarrhea, you could have an infection.

If the pain persists or becomes progressively more severe you should seek medical attention!

If you are female, it could be menstrual related.. or even an ectopic pregnancy.
Please call your doctor if this persists!

Q: Constant Lower Abdomen Pain and Lower Back Pain but no Bleeding during Pregnancy?
My girlfriend is on her 8th week of pregnancy but she’s been having a constant pain in her lower abdomen and lower back for 5 days now, although it’s bearable most of the time, from time to time, the pain is excruciating. We went to our OB and had a transV and according to our doctor, this is part of pregnancy.

Has anyone experienced this? Is it really normal? I’ve read about miscarriages and she has all the symptoms except bleeding, I’m afraid this will lead to miscarriage.

A: I’ve been having it too since about the fourth week. The doctor checked me out for it twice now (checked for UTI and signs of miscarriage or abnormal pregnancy) and there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong (I’m now 14 weeks). She thinks it’s probably just my muscles and ligaments stretching due to the pregnancy. She told me to take warm showers to relax the muscles and take regular strength tylenol when it gets really bad which does help (I use it when it hurts too much to walk). I had an appointment two days ago and the baby was just fine so this is apparently not hurting the baby, just making me extremely uncomfortable.

If it keeps getting worse for your girlfriend or doesn’t improve, it can’t hurt to call and go back. You’re not bothering the doctor. They’re PAID to listen to our problems and find a reason and/or solution. Maybe your GF’s doctor can suggest something for the pain. Don’t have her take anything until it’s been okayed.

Q: is lower abdomen pain normal in pregnancy?
it is the first month(complete) of pregnancy.i feel pain in lower abdomen.i get tired after little work.not started vomiting tendency yet.what are the precautions i need?

A: Cramping in early pregnancy is very very common. There’s no need to worry unless the pain is very sever, or if it’s accompanied with red bleeding.

Tiredness ia also very common. Your body is doing many many things, and is using up a lot of it’s energy.

If you can, try to have a mid day nap, and go to sleep at least an hour earlier every night.

Not every woman gets frequent vomitting, some due though. A cup of herbal tea, and unsalted crackers can help, especially in the morning.

No precautions, just take it easy, and listen to your body. If you’re tired, sleep. If you’re cramping rest. And also avoid all heavy lifting.

Good luck.

Q: 35 weeks pregnant feeling slight pain in lower abdomen when walking or moving around?
Not a tightening feeling. I did have sex early this morning.Also, have been taking colace for constipation. Could this just be the baby moving or the baby’s position? Any advice on what this could be would be helpful.The pain is on the lower left side and across the lower abdomen.

A: Call your doctor, now. You are so close to delivery time, the baby could be “dropping”, plus the colace could be working, or both. Call your doctor. seriously…

Q: Pain in lower abdomen while having sex along with irregular periods?
I started having irregular periods in August. I missed that period. I took a few home preg. test, all negative. I finally got my period on the 1st of sept. and have not had it since. About a week ago I started having pain in my lower abdomen whil having sex. What could these possibly be a sign of?
I should mention that this pain occurs in every position except missionary. And these are not new positions to us, so I do not think it is the position that is causing the pain.

A: I don’t know about the periods, but the pain of the lower abdomen could be your boyfriend hitting the top of your cervix. try a different position (that allows for shallower penetration) and see if you still get the pain.

Not always, Some time when my hubby during intercourse give strokes.
I feel pain in lower abdomen & after that I cant bear any more stroke. May be it is because hard strokes or may be it is when I achieved orgasm but he did not. Please tell me the reason or I have a problem?

A: this is normal, and honestly, you are not a prostitute so you are not feeling pleasure while intercourse…

Pain during intercourse is very common—nearly 3 out of 4 women have pain during intercourse at some time during their lives. For some women, the pain is only a temporary problem; for others, it is a long-term problem. Painful intercourse hasmany possible causes. Successful treatment depends on finding the right cause and sometimes trying different treatment options.

Understanding Your Body

To understand what causes painful sex, it first helps to know about female anatomy so that you can describe the exact location of the pain. You may feel pain in your vulva, in the area surrounding the opening of your vagina (called the vestibule), or within your vagina. The perineum is a common site of pain during sex. You also may feel pain in your lower back, pelvic region, uterus, or bladder.

Q: Sharp pain in lower abdomen before a bowel movement?
I tried searching this question, but couldn’t find one that was similar to mine. Sorry if this is TMI. About a half hour before I have a bowel movement, I get a very sharp pain in my lower abdomen that lasts maybe 10 seconds, and sometimes I get another one, but not always. Then about a half hour later I have a bowel movement, usually with no pain at all. What is this? Am I constipated or backed up or something?

A: Not likely constipated. Sounds as if what you feel is the peristalsis of your intestines (peristalsis is the coordinated movement to push food along). Go get it checked out, as there are other possibilities such as GI cancer, areas of weakness in your intestines that have bulged out into sacs, or even Irritable Bowel Syndrome. A doctor will listen to your symptoms and probably do a physical exam.
Hope it gets better!

Q: Does any body know the reason for pain in lower abdomen?
I feel pain in my lower abdomen. It may sound crazy but i feel there is some activity there, I have shooting pains on the sides of my lower abdomen.
Is this the area where an eggs would be made ready ? this pain is usually about a week before my next period.
I have been trying for a baby for a year.
can any body help me here?

A: If it consistently happens around a certain point in your cycle (especially mid-cycle), and is on only one side each time, it might be pain associated with ovulating, the medical term for it is mittelschmerz, which is normal and fairly common.

Q: What does this mean when you have pain in lower abdomen while breastfeeding?
when i am breastfeeding sometimes i get some pain not really sharp pains in my lower abdomin (on both left and right sides) where my incision is where i had my c-section.

I was just wondering what it could mean. should i be concerned? i am going to make an app with the dr.

thanks.

A: Pain whilst breastfeeding is normal. When you’re feeding your baby, your body releases hormones that among other things, make your uterus contract. It is essentially very small contractions known as after pains and YES they happen after c sections too. It happens quite often in the first few weeks and is not anything to worry about. If it does really concern you speak to your doctor or baby health nurse. Don’t stress.

Q: Slight pain in lower abdomen, could it be ectopic pregnancy?
I just found out I am 4 1/2 wks pregnant, I am feeling slight pain, more like discomfort rather than pain, in my lower abdomen, but every now and then the discomfort gets slightly worse for a few minutes and then goes back to the annoying discomfort. Does anyone know if this is normal during early pregnancy or could it be an ectopic pregnancy and has anyone gone through the same feeling?

A: i had an ectopic pregnancy and i didnt feel the pain till i was about 51/2 6 weeks. and it wasn just discomfort.. it was straight up cant walk pain, trust me you’ll know. When I had my ectopic pregnancy i think it was really the worst pain i have EVER been in. so if it is, you’ll know.

Q: Pregnant with very uncomfortable pain in lower abdomen?
I am 5 months pregnant and since late last night I have been experiencing a very uncomfortable constant pain in my right lower abdomen (just below my ‘baby bump’ but above the pubic bone), the pain feels like a very bad case of stitch, does anyone know what this is? I live in Egypt and the doctor isn’t open on a friday!

A: It can be gas or indigestion pain. So have some medicine for Gas, indigestion. I am 17 weeks and I also feel same pain. Sometime it can be for hunger or growing uteras as well. Have a full meal and take medicine, I think u will be fine.

Q: Vaginal pain and lower abdomen pressure at 34 weeks?
I’m 34 weeks pregnant. Yesterday I noticed a change in my discharge, today I’ve had a lot of pain down there and lower abdomen pressure. It’s not extreme pain, but it is definitely uncomfortable and catches my breath. It doesn’t feel like round ligament pain from earlier in the pregnancy. So what could this be? Is my baby dropping? Engaging? Any ideas?

A: Sounds like baby has dropped. And possibly engaged.

when you drop some women find it easier to breathe a bit better.
But baby may be in position for when its time.
God bless x definitely weight from baby
