Hello Vivi Silvia Fauziah, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Need additional information about your condition, such as how long you have felt the complaint, how many times through the process of giving birth, whether fetal movements can still be felt active, whether there are other complaints such as fever, burning or burning during urination.
Some of the causes of your complaint include:
False contractions (Braxton Hicks contractions)
Contractions before pregnancy
Urinary tract infection
Urinary tract stones
Muscle disorders or injuries
Need to be distinguished regarding contractions before pregnancy and fake contractions or in medical terms known as Braxton Hicks. False contractions usually occur in the last trimester of pregnancy and are a bodily process for preparing the mother's uterus for labor. Pain in false contractions is felt like abdominal cramps or discomfort like menstruation and there is no opening of the cervical wall.
Feelings during contractions are usually different for each woman. Some women feel the pain such as discomfort, dull feeling in the lower abdomen or back. When contractions occur before delivery, the abdomen will usually feel tight due to contractions of the uterus and can start from the abdomen, then move to the back or starting from the lower back and then move the abdomen.
You need to find out the exact cause of your complaint whether it is caused by contractions, or other disorders of the kidneys or back muscles. It is best to consult with your doctor or obstetrician because the doctor requires a physical examination, supporting examination, assessing the mother's contractions, fetal condition, and opening of the uterine wall.
Mothers can also pay attention to danger signs or signs of labor and should immediately go to the nearest health facility such as more frequent and regular contractions, bleeding out of lenders, rupture of amniotic fluid, bleeding from the birth canal, baby's movements become invisible or inactive, experience other complaints such as swollen feet, severe headaches, blurred vision, or seizures.
Some things you can do to reduce pain include:
Divert attention from pain with other activities such as watching TV
Think positively and try to relax
Enough rest to prepare for energy in labor later
Massage on the leg, arm, or lower back area
Cold compression on the back
