Is It Dangerous If Sneezing During Pregnancy To Stomach Pain?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, I’m 12 weeks pregnant, but from last night I was sneezing until my stomach ached, this morning it was the same as sneezing and sneezing until I came out in cold sweat and instead now I was really fast and really worried, I was worried whether this Will it be bad for my fetus? And do I have to get checked immediately to know how my fetus is? thanks.
Good evening Mei22, thank you for asking on the HealthReplies.com forum.
Sneezing is a normal reaction produced by the body where this reaction will occur if you experience certain conditions such as allergies, flu, side effects of hormonal changes during pregnancy, and others. Also note that sneezing either rarely or often will not harm the pregnancy, the fetus in the womb and also does not risk causing miscarriage because basically the body already has a certain mechanism to maintain the pregnancy and the fetus in it to stay safe in a variety of circumstances including against sneezing. Pain that sometimes arises in the abdomen when sneezing is also normal where it occurs due to stretching in the abdomen due to an enlarged uterus during pregnancy.
But although sneezing itself is not dangerous for pregnancy, keep in mind that sneezing is a reaction caused by certain conditions as mentioned above, so if you often experience sneezing during pregnancy, especially if accompanied by other symptoms as you mentioned, you should check your situation whether you suffer from certain diseases that cause these symptoms, because there are several possible diseases that can harm your pregnancy so it is highly recommended that you immediately get treatment to overcome the disease.
For the time being, you can try doing the following things to help reduce the symptoms of sneezing, such as:
Use a humidifier if you feel the air in your environment is quite dry and irritates your nose
Avoiding things that cause sneezing
If needed you can consider getting a vaccination against flu
If you feel pain in the stomach when sneezing, you can help reduce it by lying on the left side or by holding your stomach with your hands when sneezing.
If you experience a particular disease, make sure you control and treat the disease until it's complete
Exercise regularly by doing special sports for pregnant women to help increase your endurance during pregnancy
Eat nutritious foods during pregnancy, especially foods that contain enough vitamin C to help increase your immune system
Although sneezing is not dangerous, but if this causes very severe pain in the abdomen, especially the lower abdomen accompanied by blood or tissue discharge from the birth canal, immediately see a doctor to do an examination of your uterus.
I hope this helps.
