course of pregnancy is often associated with the occurrence of discomfort in the abdomen. Abdominal pain during pregnancy (normal) due to sprain of the uterus as it grows.In response to intense exercise, sudden changes in body position or, on the contrary, time in the forced position (seat) uterus can several times a day to tone (strain hardening).These unpleasant sensations normally have to go with the rest, better lying down.Useful dosage will exercise or swimming.When pain, intensity and duration of which does not change at rest, it is required to consult a doctor.Not every
abdominal pain associated with pregnancy.If it is accompanied by other symptoms (nausea or vomiting), it is likely indigestion, poisoning, inflammation of the bladder or appendicitis.All of these conditions may occur during any other period, and is not directly related to pregnancy.But pregnancy is sometimes weakens some symptoms and enhances the other, less significant, because so difficult to make a correct diagnosis.So
Some diseases of the abdomen, accompanied by pain, require immediate medical attention.These states are called acute diseases of the abdominal cavity.These include: appendicitis, perforation of the stomach ulcers, intestinal obstruction, gallstone disease, inflammation of the pancreas.
These diseases, appearing during pregnancy cause medical difficulties in their proper diagnosis and treatment.Difficulty in diagnosis due to the fact that during pregnancy reduced immunity, thereby accelerating the dynamics of inflammatory processes.In pregnant women, the uterus changes the location of the intestinal loops as its increase, significantly raising them up.Localization and distribution abdominal pain during pregnancy different from a typical course of the disease in non-pregnant.
To make an accurate diagnosis and timely treatment is required to start joint consultation obstetrician-gynecologist and surgeon.
If there were symptoms such as severe pain in the lower abdomen (usually on one side), slight bleeding from the birth canal, increased urge to defecation (sometimes painful) and weakness (all this after a positive pregnancy test), - immediatelyseek medical advice.They may indicate an ectopic pregnancy - a condition that threatens the woman's health.Early diagnosis is, in this case of decisive importance, because it allows you to apply the appropriate treatment and prevent dangerous intra-abdominal bleeding.Symptoms are non-specific, and it complicates the diagnosis.An ectopic pregnancy develops because the fertilized egg is implanted in the uterus is not, as in the fallopian tube (most right).To diagnose an ectopic pregnancy can be difficult even for experienced gynecologist.Until now, there unrecognized cases with tragic consequences, which causes severe bleeding.The greatest risk occurs when a fertilized egg develops damaging the wall of a large blood vessel.There is internal bleeding into the abdominal cavity, or (more rarely) - severe bleeding from the genital tract.Treatment of an ectopic pregnancy is carried out only in a hospital setting.It is necessary surgery, the amount of which depends on the gestational age, the degree of damage to the pipe and severity of bleeding - from the extrusion of the ovum (the tube is retained) to remove the tube or its plastics.
Acute appendicitis is the most common cause of surgery during pregnancy.Pregnancy itself has no direct effect on the occurrence of this disease.A significant problem associated with an increase in the uterus, it is moving up the appendix, which causes the symptoms of atypical manifestations of acute appendicitis.The disease usually begins with pain in the navel, further localized in the right iliac region, accompanied by nausea and vomiting, fever and increased heart rate.During pregnancy, often the only symptom is nausea.
dangerous complication of appendicitis - perforation of the appendix when the pus poured into the abdominal cavity.Due to the late medical intervention may be peritonitis (inflammation of peritoneum lining the entire abdominal cavity).
Inflammation of the appendix treated exclusively by surgery.Despite the risk of preterm birth associated with the opening of the abdomen, the operation is vital and is held under the supervision of the state reinforced the child's mother, as well as the use of drugs that prevent uterine contractions.Subject to these conditions the risk is minimized.Peritonitis is more dangerous than the surgery itself, because it can lead to blood poisoning (septicemia).
Remember that occurrence of abdominal pain during pregnancy - compulsory reason for going to the antenatal clinic!
