Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, is this pregnancy the first time for you? Do you have other complaints, such as a tight stomach, trouble urinating, fever, bleeding from the birth canal, and so on?
Pain in the pelvic area, lower abdomen, to the genitals is generally a normal thing to happen to pregnant women whose gestational age has entered the third trimester. placenta, body fat, uterine muscle thickening, and so on. Pain can also appear due to false contractions (Braxton Hicks) that arise due to a strong stretch of the uterine muscle. The pain can also get worse if the lower part of your fetus has descended into the pelvic inlet (in women who have been pregnant and gave birth before, the lower part of the fetus can descend into the pelvic inlet before 9 months of gestation).
As long as the pain is mild in intensity, without any other complaints as mentioned above, chances are that your condition is still normal and harmless.
Initial treatment steps, such as using warm compresses, lying down with your legs elevated, and breathing exercises can generally help relieve this pain. Also balance the above treatment with adequate eating and drinking, regular sleep, and good stress management. It is also recommended to limit sexual intercourse before the pregnancy enters the age of 36 weeks.
You need to see a doctor immediately if you find the danger signs as mentioned above, or if the pain is unbearable to the point that it makes it difficult for you to carry out even light activities. Pain like this is feared to indicate a medical disorder, for example:
Signs of preterm labor
Placental abruption (separation of the placenta from its attachment to the uterine wall)
Urinary tract infection
Irritable bowel syndrome
Appendicitis (inflammation of the appendix)
Obstructive ileus (intestinal obstruction)
Ovarian cysts (fluid-filled sacs in the ovaries)
Myoma (benign tumor of uterine muscle), and so on
A thorough doctor's examination assisted also with ultrasound or laboratory tests are generally able to distinguish mild or dangerous conditions. That way, proper treatment can be done immediately.
Hope it helps ya..
