Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
pain & cramping in the lower abdomen can be due to many causes ,in my view your pain & cramping is due to some infection ,not due to sex.So consult the gynec& get tested to find the cause & get it treated .Hb,TLC,DLC ,urine complete,& ultrasound of abdomen is required to find the cause.
Wish you good health

I m 28 yrs old got married recently and got pregnant early.. I did my first USG at 6th week and the doctor told that the fetus is healthy with a positive heart beat.. At 11th week I went for my usual antenatal check up and the doctor did both the abdominal and vaginal scan and confirmed that there is no fetal heart beat and the baby was just 9 weeks old. After 1 week I did an induced abortion with oxytocin.. What might be the reason for my baby s death?? How long I should wait for my next pregnancy?? What will be the ideal gap between an abortion and next safe pregnancy??

Hi, My wife had her periods fell on August 31 to September 3, but she has missed them on the expected dates (September 28 to October 1). We had intercourse between September 13 - 16. There might be high chance for her getting pregnant. However, she wants to abort, if such is the case. Do we have any home remedy for this? As it might be in very early stage, how can she abort safely, what are the chances of, if this early abortion has any ill effects and can cause difficulty in conceiving later on? Appreciate in advance.

4 year old son has the following symptoms.: abdominal distention, diarrhea, and vomiting for 1 week. Vomiting sunsided and abdominal distention persists, regular stool and stomach pain ( upper stomach- just below the rib cage in the middle). He was put on Zofran for nausea, 3 week course of Clarithro and Amoxicillin since H pylori cam back positive - done by pediatrician. Meanwhile the gastroenterologist did EGD post abx therapy said biopsy is normal and stomach looks fine and that his symptoms should resolve. HEr belief is that the nausea and abdominal pain is a result of a bad gastroenteritis. It has now been 6 weeks and the diarrhea returned for 24 hours with vomiting for 12 hours. HE now continues with the stomach pain which comes and goes and what he describes as his stomach rumbling for food. He has been on Prevacid for 5 weeks. Upper GI with follow thru is normal.

Hello. I am 29 (almost 30 years old) and I ve been having a persistent abdominal pain on the left hand lower side for about 4 months. It seems to be most aggravated when I go from sitting for long periods of time and standing and I feel it almost constantly through out the day. I exercise and doing any type of abdominal exercise is painful. I also get a stabbing burning sensation along with it on occasion, which seems to be aggravated right before a bowel movement. What could this be? Also, it appears my perineum is a bit swollen.
