At any stage of gestation a woman may experience pain in or around the pelvis. Intensity and localization of the pain can vary during pregnancy and differ from experiences in previous pregnancies. Pelvic pain may start or continue in the period after delivery.

Pelvic pain is felt in any of the green, red or orange coloured areas

 

 

Note: pain is often experienced after a certain period: like after 10 minutes standing, 20 minutes sitting or after 60 minutes of lying down.

 

When do you need to see a doctor?

Consult your physician when there are also signs of pain, numbness or weakness in the lower leg, ankle, foot or toes. When you experience sudden incontinence (more than just a few drops) you have to inform your midwife or specialist.

 

When do you need therapeutic help?

As soon as you think you are out of control of your body, or when the pain is hindering your daily functions, it is wise to see a specialized therapist to help you regain pelvic control.
