Causes Of Right-sided Stomach Pain During 22 Weeks Of Pregnancy?
In the afternoon I want to ask, why does my right stomach hurt? I am 22 weeks pregnant, and my stomach aches only on the right, have had bowel movements and nausea.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Right-sided stomach pain can or may not be related to pregnancy. If it is not related to pregnancy, it can be due to muscle, bone and nerve injuries, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, kidney infections, impaired function of the liver and pancreas, gallstones and inflammation of the intestine.
If it is related to pregnancy, then it could be because during pregnancy, a woman's body secretes certain hormones that make the muscles become more relaxed and more prone to feel pain and injury when carrying out certain activities, especially with increasing body weight due to the growth of the baby.
But none of the above possibilities can be ascertained without direct examination, therefore our advice should you still check yourself, especially to the obstetrician, so that physical examination and support such as blood tests and ultrasound tests, as well as control your pregnancy. If all results are normal, then you don't need to worry and enough to relieve pain with a warm compress, reduce physical activity and take pain medication recommended by your obstetrician because not all medicines are safe for pregnant women. So, hopefully answering your question.
