Pelvic Pain?


So i had an ovarian cyst that ruptured last month and I was in the hospital for it they just noticed i had clear pelvic fluid in me and they said it would just deteriate after time. About two weeks ago I had my period and it was so bad the cramps were two days before my period and even after and now Im just feeling pain like near my lower pelvic area. Ive been checked at by the gyno though 2 weeks ago and last week they did an ultrasound. They said there isnt anything in my pelvic region. I told my doctor about the pain and he said it could be IBS because I have been under so much stress for the last month and a half. I also heard it may be chronic pelvic pain. I just dont know what to think about it. I also once was using q-tips for 2 weeks to check my discharge to see for any unsualness going on. I just dont know what to think.

I would suggest a second opinion, just to be sure. You don't want to be taking any chances.  (+ info)

Pelvic pain?


I am just now entering my 3rd trimester and recently I've started to have pelvic pain. It kind of feels like my pelvic bones ache. I figured it was from the hormones that "loosen" your pelvis in preparation of childbirth. Anyone ever felt this pain before? I don't like it!
----------

I've been having this for about the last 15 weeks. I'm 37 weeks now. Yes it's from the hormones. Mine has gotten so bad at times that I can't lift my legs to put on my pants or get into my car. I asked my doc about this because I never had it with my first 2 pregnancies, and he said it was partly because of my age, and the numberof years between this pregnancy and my last (7) and because this is my third baby. With the more children you have, your body "remembers" more about how things work. I have found that doing some stretching, warm baths and sleeping with a pillow between my legs has helped. But the pain is always there, and now that her head is engaged, it has gotten worse. But it will be over soon.. Best of luck to you. hope that this helps.  (+ info)

pelvic pain?


the past couple of days, ive had pain in my pelvic area. no matter when i sit, stand, walk, or even try to lay down and sleep. is it an early sign of pregnancy? or what else can it be?
----------

Abdominal/pelvic pain that is similar to that of period cramping may indicate a problem in a reproductive organ (like the pain around your ovaries or uterus).

This includes conditions such as endometriosis (when tissue from the uterus is displaced to somewhere else like the pelvic wall or ovaries), uterine fibroids (thick bands of muscular and fibrous tissue in the uterus), ovarian cysts, ovarian cancer (rare), or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) infection of the reproductive organs, usually from a sexually transmitted disease.

If you have pain in your ovary area, you might have an ovarian cyst. I have experienced that same type of pain whenever I have had an ovarian cyst. I was also diagnosed with endometriosis last year which caused me severe pelvic pain and intense and painful period cramping.

Based on your symptoms and what you wrote, I would recommend that you should see your doctor/gynaecologist, just to rule out any serious causes.

Good luck :)  (+ info)

Is this severe pelvic pain normal during pregnancy?


I've had severe pelvic pains when I move, basically it hurts anytime I'm not sitting with my pillow or laying with it. It's a pain that's like a shooting pain in the pelvic area with contractions occurring every ffew minutes too when I'm not sitting. I've been having Braxton Hicks pains for 2 weeks on a nightly basis, but this has been bothering me for the last 16 hours and I have no health insurance so I don't want to show up to the ER just yet. I'm 30 weeks pregnant. Any and all suggestions would be very helpful..Thank you in advance!
----------

Pelvic pain is very normal when your that far along. And yes, it hurts so bad that you can barely move. It will only get worse, so hang in there.

Shooting pain around your vagina. I don't know if your talking about that, but that is normal to. If you haven't experienced it yet, I'm pretty sure you'll start to experience that real soon. It will feel like a shooting, stabbing, sharp pain around your vagina. No worrys, because that is your baby on your cervix pressing up against your nerves.

Don't worry about Braxton Hicks. If you go to the hospital with Braxton Hicks, they'll just send you back. Wait to at least see if they start getting 5 mins apart.

If this doesn't help, it's best to see the doctor. I know it's expensive, but sometimes you can't put a price on your baby.  (+ info)

What cardio is allowed for someone with pelvic pain?


What cardio would be best/safest for someone with chronic pelvic pain syndrome? I heard that cycling should not be done. What about running, rowing and elliptical machines?
----------

Try pool therapy exercises.

Good luck.  (+ info)

What is causing my left pelvic pain and thigh discomfort?


I am having pain in my left pelvic area. It seems to travel down to
my upper thigh. It is very uncomfortable and it keeps me awake at night. What is causing the pain and discomfort?
----------

It's actually your lower back causing your hip to hurt causing it to radiate to your thigh. I have the same problem. I hate doctors and hate medicine so i deal with it. I think a chiropractor could do you and me some good.  (+ info)

Anyone know how to relieve pelvic pain at night during the last few weeks of pregnancy?


I feel like my pelvic bone is going to break in half when I get up to use the restroom in the middle of the night. Any advice in relieving that pain?
----------

I asked my doctor the same question and he laughed at me. :(
I have a pillow that I put between my legs. Also, it seems easier when i don't drink or eat as much before bed. I am so sick of hearing take Tylenol... that is my doctors answer to everything. I also have a heat pack that (if I am not in too much of a rush) I put in that area for a minute or two before I stand up. Good luck! If you find something that works better, let me know! : )  (+ info)

Why do I get pelvic pain in the righ lower quadrant everytime I have a period?


I have pain medial to my right iliac bone in the lower pelvic area above my pubic bone almost 1/2 way. After my period ends, the pain goes away. Its like a menstural cramp in the right side. I cramped here really bad after the birth of my daughter. Could this be an adhesion or is this normal? Anyone else do this?
----------

Could be Scar tissue flaring up. Or could be an ovary flaring up. Get checked. It will only get worse. The docs can prescribe meds for inflammation  (+ info)

When do early contractions and pelvic pain start?


i'm 28 weeks pregnant with my first baby and i've been really sore in the pelvic area. I have also been having cramps for about 2 months now, which i assume are braxton hicks or round ligament pain... when did all of this start for you? when should it start?

What is the cause of my severe pelvic pain?


My cycle is late (so far it may be missed) and at random times i keep getting this severe stabbing pain in pelvic area. It feels like my uterus but im not sure. im pretty sure my cycle has a lot to do with this pain.

You can also be having trouble with the tendon to your thigh next to that area. What happens is the tendon likes to shorten itself up pulling your thigh into your hip. After that it pulls where the tendon is attached and because this one comes in by your pelvic bone it also gets attached to the inside of the pelvic bones. When the tendon is short and pulling on this area it feels like cramps, or at least in the same area, a lot of women complain about going to the bathroom a lot as well. Here is how you can release the tendon for your thigh:
Pelvic tendon
With only shorts on lay on a bed and pull your legs up and bend them at the knee so your feet are flat on the bed. Take your hand and run it down the crease between your thigh and body. When you reach the area of your pelvis you will feel a bump in that crease. That is the tendon to work on. Take it between your fingers and thumb and press and hold a good amount of pressure on it. Then relax, take a deep breath and exhale and don’t tense up any part of your body. After 30 seconds slowly lower your leg outward until it has gone as far as it will. Then release the pressure but rest your leg there for one minute longer. As a side note, if you cannot get a grip on the tendon, press on it near the pelvis with as much pressure as you can. Don’t let it slip out from under that pressure. Then continue with the rest of the exercise.
Wear something that is loose so you can get to the skin in that area so you can find the tendon easier.  (+ info)
