Hi , too much pain is not normal , as it is on one side it is less likely to be uterine pain.It can be due to intestinal , urinary or muscular causes.Get an ultrasound and urine examination done.If you are having constipation then drink lot of water and take fibre rich diet.Tablet isoxsuprine hydrochloride 10 mgm at bed time will help as it relaxes the uterus.

this pain started yesterday afternoon, i know its not menstrual cramps because i just got off my period a week ago, i have severe pains in my right pelvic area and all in my stomach, it hurts really bad to cough, sneeze or laugh, i have to push down when i do any of those to make the pain stop and it still does not work, when im laying down the pain feels like it gets worse and i can only lay on my back. i am not pregnant and as well do not have insurance.

I am just at 32 weeks pregnant and I just started to have lower back pain followed by lower pelvic pain just on my left side. Just yesterday evening the lower pelvic pain sometimes caused it to hurt when I urinate. I can feel the baby sitting or pressing over there. It only hurts on the left side and it doesnt ache one bit on the right side (even when urinating). Your thoughts?

I had the copper coil fitted just over 2 months ago, and my doctor told me I had suffered cervical shock as a result.

On a number of occasions sex has been painful and I cannot feel the strings. Any advice much appreciated.

Hi. I am 34, exercise 6 times a week, and eat healthy. However, recently diagnosed with polycystic ovaries from a huge weight gain when pregnant (had baby 3 years ago). I also have pain just below my left pelvic bone (it gets worse when I stand up, or lean towards my left side), but no pain on touch, so doctors have said its just stress. But pain is getting worse. I am gluten intolerant, eat a clean G/F meal. But with the pelvic pain, I have also noticed that my poo is dark and pebbly (though soft), with a bit of blood every so often, and lots of visible mucus. Any insight will help- are these symptoms related? Is it just stress? Am I worrying for nothing? I am currently on metformin for the polycystic ovaries. Thanks.
