Why does the abdomen hurt in the early stages of pregnancy?
When there is pain in the abdomen in the early stages of pregnancy, most often the first reaction of a future mother is panic and anxiety for the preservation of the fetus. Those who already have the experience of motherhood, recognize the nature of pain and know when it is possible to remain calm, and when it is necessary to sound an alarm. But during the first pregnancy a woman is most often lost, panicking and afraid of every new sensation. Naturally, you need to consult a doctor for any abdominal pain, at least – to keep your peace and minimize stress, as a maximum – to take prompt measures to preserve the fetus. What should I do if my stomach hurts early in pregnancy? When it is necessary to worry, and when – to accept pain as a side effect of the joy of future motherhood?
Any pain is a very unpleasant symptom. A pain in the abdomen during pregnancy, especially in the early stages – is also restless. For some reason, many women, experiencing pain in the uterus (sometimes at the same time in the lower back), immediately think of miscarriage, forgetting that after conception the body is rebuilt under new conditions. And these changes can also be accompanied by pain in the abdomen. Simply put, not every such symptom is alarming, and some of the symptoms are absolutely normal and natural for an interesting situation. So, why does the abdomen hurt in the early stages of pregnancy? The reasons for this phenomenon can be:
- Stretching of the uterus;
- Expansion of abdominal muscles;
- Tone (hypertonus) of the uterus;
- Risk of miscarriage;
- Frozen pregnancy;
- Ectopic pregnancy;
- Diseases of the genitourinary system;
- Injury of the cervix during the examination or sexual intercourse.
