Pain In The Buttocks Area During Pregnancy Until After Childbirth?
I am a housewife 27 years old, since getting pregnant until after giving birth now I always feel pain in the buttocks, pain when walking or when changing positions while lying down … I have had a motor accident in 2016, I want to ask if there is a relationship between the accident with butt pain that I experienced even though the pain was just felt during early pregnancy?
Hello Ms. Winda! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Congratulations on the birth of your baby.
Pain in the buttocks area during pregnancy can be caused by pain in the pelvic grindle, sciatica, hemorrhoids, and various other problems. Pelvic grindle is an area in the pelvis that is the base of the spine. Pain in the pelvic grindle occurs due to impaired joint movement in this area. When pregnant, you gain weight, so that it will affect the way you sit or stand and cause changes in the burden on the pelvic area. Pain in this area occurs in 1 in 5 pregnant women and usually occurs in people who have experienced a history of injuries in the past, as you said. Pain is usually felt when walking, climbing stairs, or when getting out of bed. Before you became pregnant, you didn't feel the pain, but after you got pregnant and gained weight, the disturbance in the movement of the joints would cause quite annoying pain.
Humans have nerves that spread from the lower back, past the waist and buttocks, then down to the legs. When pregnant, the nerves in the buttocks area can be depressed due to increased pressure from weight gain and the position of the fetus that compresses the nerve. This disorder is called sciatica. In this disorder, usually pregnant women will feel pain with a burning sensation in the lower back, buttocks, and spread to the legs.
Hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids are conditions where blood vessels dilate in the rectal area. Mothers can recognize it by the presence of blood during bowel movements (BAB). Pain in the buttocks area is usually more felt when defecating. BAB also feels hard and is difficult to remove. Pregnant women often experience hemorrhoids because the enlarged uterus puts excessive pressure on the rectum, so that blood vessels in the area can be enlarged. In addition, straining that is not right in the process of giving birth can also cause hemorrhoids that occur more severe. If you see blood during a bowel movement, immediately see the nearest doctor for examination. If you do have hemorrhoids, you may be referred to a surgeon.
To reduce pain due to this, you can try to change your position more often. Avoid sitting still for more than 30 minutes. Mothers should also rely on both feet with the same weight when standing. Mother can sleep on her side to the buttocks that are not painful. When you get out of bed, try to keep your knees together and begin to tilt and then put your feet on the floor together. Avoid lifting heavy weights, climbing or descending stairs too often, or sitting with your legs crossed. Mothers should also not sit on the floor. Avoid bending over when lifting the child and do not hold the child at an angle to only one side of the body. If you have tried these things, but the pain has not diminished, you should immediately see a doctor, especially an orthopedic doctor.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
