Right-sided Stomach Pain When Coughing At 8 Months Of Gestation?
morning, want to ask if you are 8 months pregnant and coughing until the right abdomen hurts, is it dangerous?
Thank you for the question.
Most often, coughing occurs due to allergies, such as cold, dust mites, animal hair, and so on. Cough can also occur due to irritation (for example when exposed to pollution or dry air), viral or bacterial infections, stomach acid reflux to the throat, foreign body aspiration, immune disorders, drug side effects, congestive heart failure, and so on.
Most cases of coughing during pregnancy are harmless, provided they occur no more than 2 weeks, and are not accompanied by fever, spasms, vomiting, sputum bleeding, wheezing, or other severe complaints. It's just that, indeed, the contraction of the abdominal muscles is quite severe when coughing can trigger pain. Not only that, coughing can also disrupt sleep and make a pregnant woman's appetite decrease, so the risk of disrupting the development of the fetus.
Therefore, if you still have a cough between 1-3 days, without accompanied by severe complaints as mentioned above, you should first handle with:
Get plenty of rest Don't consume food and cold drinks, artificial sweets, greasy Expand to eat broth, fruits rich in vitamin C Don't yell excessively Don't breathe through your mouth Use a mask Stay away from cigarettes, smoke, and allergens and other irritants that can make you cough Compress warm stomach that feels painful However, if the steps above have not been able to overcome your complaints, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician before taking any medication huh ..
I hope this helps.
