Feeling Contractions After Intercourse While Pregnant At 37 Weeks?
now my biological age is 38 weeks. At the age of 37 weeks my husband and I had sex but after about an hour of intercourse I felt a contraction that lasted for hours with a feeling like pre menstruation in the lower abdominal area of the lower back even to the thighs.
Hello Dwi Mahera, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Contractions are a sign that you are in labor. Contractions are often felt as abdominal cramps as they occur with menstrual cramps. But contractions can also appear before you enter labor, this condition is also called a fake contraction. Therefore it is important for you to distinguish between false contractions or indeed contractions during labor. Because contractions before term pregnancy (full months) can increase the risk of preterm birth.
Here's how to distinguish between genuine contractions and fake contractions:
Usually fake contractions only occur 1 or 2 times in an hour. In a day the contractions appear several times usually irregular distance between one contraction with the other far apart. In the original contractions usually in a day you will often experience regular contractions, and the time interval between contractions is increasingly short.
False contractions rarely occur for a long time, or usually only for 1 minute
When a contraction of plasma, generally will disappear when you do activities, but the original contraction will not affect when you do other activities.
The strength of false contractions does not increase. However, labor contractions will increase, accompanied by increasing pain.
False contractions are only felt in the front of the abdomen and the original contractions of labor usually start from the lower back and spread forward or vice versa.
However, if you have reached 37 weeks of pregnancy and contractions that often occur more than 4 times in 1 hour you need to be aware of the possibility of preterm labor. See a doctor or midwife at the nearest health facility immediately.
In addition to other signs of contraction, the crew is known when you are entering labor such as vaginal discharge that is the amniotic fluid with blood spots and you feel pressure on the pelvis.
