Massage The Stomach While Pregnant?
I want to ask, is it permissible to massage during young pregnancy, before getting pregnant before massage and she said her womb was slightly down and sideways. I am currently 6 weeks pregnant and my stomach feels cramping often … Thank you in advance
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Massage on the stomach is something that should not be done, because it can cause interference with the position of organs in your stomach. Especially if you are pregnant, where massage can cause the uterus to contract resulting in miscarriage. For this reason, this is highly recommended to be avoided. You need to know the signs of danger during pregnancy, namely:
1. Cramps in the lower abdomen.
2. Blood from the birth canal.
3. Dizziness followed by high blood pressure and swelling in the legs.
If the above happens, consult your obstetrician immediately. So that further inspection can be done. The doctor will do an abdominal ultrasound examination to see the condition of your pregnancy. Although cramps in your stomach can also be caused by other factors, such as in a large intestinal infection, which also feels like stomach cramps. However, it is necessary to be careful in this case, because there is indeed a possibility of cramps originating from the uterus and this condition threatens the life of your fetus. If so, the doctor will prescribe uterine sedatives to prevent the threat of miscarriage.
You should rest for a while, until the cramps improve. Avoid heavy activities such as lifting heavy loads.
Thus hopefully useful.
