Pubic Physiological Changes In Pregnant Women?
when the puerperal mother what physiological changes occur in the symphysis pubis? Stretch / widen or what?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
The symphysis pubis is a hyaline cartilage near the genitals. Starting from the third trimester of pregnancy, relaxation / stretching of ligaments (connective tissue of bones in the joints) and mild widening (less than 10 mm) of the tail spinal joints with pubic symphysis are caused by the influence of the hormone relaxin and progesterone. These physiological changes are useful for flexing the intercellular tissue as preparation for the birthing process. After delivery, these physiological changes during pregnancy will return to the state they were in before they were pregnant in the puerperium, which is around 6-8 weeks. Thus, pubic symphysis stretches occur during the final trimester of pregnancy, not during the puerperium. During the puerperium, the symphysis pubis physiologically will gradually return to the state as before pregnancy.
Do not hesitate to consult with a doctor or obstetrician and gynecologist if you have complaints during the puerperium. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
