Pain in the uterus during pregnancy

What to do, if the uterus hurts during pregnancy?

A pregnant woman may feel a tingling or tingling in the uterus when the embryo is planted on its wall - approximately 6-12 days after conception. However, these pains are very insignificant and often not felt at all.

The female womb is basically muscles and other surrounding tissues, allowing it to expand. The uterus begins to increase during pregnancy, adapting to the constant growth of the fetus. Supporting her ligaments stretch, and this can cause pain on both sides of the abdomen. The uterus itself can also ache a bit, but it is not strong and not constant. This can happen throughout the entire pregnancy, until the uterus begins to contract during labor.

All these processes are due to hormones. Progesterone promotes relaxation of the uterus so that it does not contract, otherwise the fetus will be rejected. But if the hormone of progesterone in the body of a woman is not enough - the uterus comes in a tone, which prevents the embryo from being introduced into the endometrium. So there is a spontaneous miscarriage. When the uterus is in hypertension - then it starts to really hurt. And this situation requires himSlow medical examination and further instructions. Especially if strong aching pains are given in the lower back and are accompanied by bleeding. Remember that during pregnancy you can not take any medications yourself, including painkillers.

Uterine spasms that are not related to hypertension can also occur. For example, after sex or with a full bladder. This should be avoided in order not to provoke a tone. To eliminate spastic pain in the uterus will help heat, such as a heating pad. But it is necessary to make sure that the uterus does not overheat. Try to have more rest and eat right. Any disturbances in the digestive system (often dysbacteriosis, for example), can also be accompanied by pain in the lower abdomen. And since the digestive organs are very close to the uterus, then the exact localization of such pain is sometimes difficult to determine and it seems as if the uterus is hurting. Try to monitor proper nutrition, eat foods that do not cause fermentation and bloating. Remember that pregnant women often suffer from constipation, which also hurts. So drink plenty of fluids and watch for the stool.

Keep in mind that calm unobtrusive colic is considered "normal". If the pain becomes unbearable, acute and frequent, accompanied by severe bleeding or other unusual symptoms, contact your doctor immediately. In addition to the threat of miscarriage in this case, there may be a threat of detachment of the placenta, which is extremely dangerous. Premature detachment of the placenta can begin after abdominal trauma, physical overstrain, with certain diseases (for example, hypertension, toxicosis of the second half of pregnancy).
