Back Pain When You Are 11 Weeks Pregnant?
Hello doctor, I’m 28 years old. I am pregnant with my first child of 11 weeks’ gestation. From the beginning of pregnancy I often felt pain in the hips back. Not too painful, but often. The pain is the same as the symptoms when the beginning of menstruation. Is this dangerous or not for my pregnancy? What is the cause and how to prevent it? During pregnancy I never experienced blood spots or spots.
Hello Izati, Thank you for the question.
Besides back pain, do you experience other complaints such as complaints when urinating? Back pain in pregnant women can be caused by:
the uterus enlarges so that the center of gravity moves and the spine must adapt to this shift in center of gravity
stretching the muscles and ligaments of the uterus as the uterus grows
However, this complaint can also be caused by urinary tract infections if you experience complaints during urination such as pain during urination, incomplete feeling after urination, difficulty retaining or even difficult urination, fever, nausea, vomiting, or caused by pelvic inflammation if you also experience abnormal vaginal discharge, pain after intercourse, fever, pelvic pain.
You can do a warm compress on the area of the sore waist. You can also soak in warm water when bathing to help relax muscles and reduce back pain. You are also advised to manage stress well and always maintain your good posture. If this complaint is accompanied by bleeding / spots, abnormal vaginal discharge, complaints during urination or if the complaint worsens and does not improve, please immediately check with your obstetrician.
Hopefully this information is useful.
