Fibroids Pain During Pregnancy

Spotting and Pain during Pregnancy

00004000
Unfortunately not all pregnancies are smooth sailing. There are many women each year who experience particularly difficult pregnancies. These women will have vaginal pain and experience a spotting pregnancy. These are cases that need to be under the care of a physician. This is really the only way to ensure a safe pregnancy and future delivery.

Experiencing vaginal pain, or having a spotting pregnancy can be particularly difficult. This is true not only for the expectant mother, but her unborn child, as well. There are various reasons, for experiencing either of these issues. Some of these reasons, can be quite serious and should be addressed quickly.

Individually, both vaginal pain, and spotting while pregnant, can be signs of more serious conditions. Vaginal pain, itself can be caused by many different things. This type of pain can be connected to a woman’s having vaginitis or a yeast infection. Both of these have similar uncomfortable symptoms. Women, with either vaginitis or yeast infection, experience itching or burning, of the vaginal area.

Expectant mothers need extra care, when comes to vaginitis and yeast infection. Either could be the cause for a vaginal pain, or the cause of spotting pregnancy experiences. In these cases, a woman would notice that her vagina is inflamed, and could be red. A simple doctor’s visit could relieve this symptom.

Doctors often prescribe topical creams to combat the itching and burning of the vaginal area. These creams are easily applied to the effected area, and can give relief quickly. Pain in the vaginal area, often goes hand and hand with discharge. Women regularly see a discharge from the vagina, in these scenarios. These discharges can come in various colors, and sometime have an unpleasant odor.

Pregnant women, who are experiencing these, should pay close attention to them. This is important to not only not if they worsen, but change in odor. Generally your doctor will want to know some specifics about what you’ve noticed by way of discharge. Women who are noticing pain, must monitor their symptoms. This is even more crucial when a woman is pregnant.

If for some reason the spotting turns into full on bleeding, medical attention should be sought quickly. Vaginal pain, does not only mean that there could be a problem with your baby. In some instances, this type of pregnancy is related to a greater condition. Whatever the condition is, it may be unknown to both mother and her doctor. If this is true, tests will need to be run for a proper diagnosis.

One such condition, is the existence of fibroid tumors. These tumors have been known to cause extreme pain, in women who are not pregnant. So for those who are, the symptoms can be even worse. In some women, the cause for this type of pregnancy will be polyps, or even cancer. In these cases, pregnancy becomes more difficult, if not risky. It’s very important to watch all abnormal feelings or sensations while you’re pregnant. Even though some reasons will be normal and pose no danger, there are reasons, that could.

  2. QUESTION:
    painful fibroids in pregnancy?
    please help any diet?hi is there a remedy for dealing with fibroids pains during pregnancy ?I am in serious pain but hospital says there is nothing that can be done except codeine pills

    • ANSWER:
      Unfortunately the only real treatment for fibroids is either a hysterectomy or, in women who still want children, surgical removal of the fibroid. As you are pregnant these are obviously not options for you.
      Are they sure it is the fibroids causing such pain as usually they are painless? I would have a word with your doctor to make sure everything else is alright…that nothing else is causing this pain, and to discuss pain control with him although what you can take is limited.
      I know of no diet that can help but maybe something such as a TENS machine may be of use. This is a machine that passes a minute electrical current to you via electrode pads, it is often effective with chronic pain… your midwife can advise you on there use.
      Good Luck…I hope you soon feel better.

  3. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had fibroids during pregnancy?
    The ultrasound technician found multiple fibroids on the outside of my uterus durning my ultrasound in Dec. My doctor told me at my last appt. that the largest one is the size of a softball. I have to go in for another ultrasound the end of the month and if it has grown, it possibly will have to be surgically removed before I deliver in April. Has anyone else had one this big and what happened during your last trimester. I know everyone is different but I’m just curious. This large fibriod has been causing me discomfort and pain for the last 3 months.

    • ANSWER:
      I feel for you! I too have fibroid tumor growth, but on the inside of my uterus. During my gall bladder surgery they tried to investigate further, only to discover it was inside my uterus forcing me to hang on until the end of my pregnancy to decide what to do.

      The pain is very uncomfortable, and initially they found it because I was in so much pain that it was presenting as a ruptured appendix! So far, there hasn’t been anything besides having a warm bath or relaxing which has eased the discomfort for me. Even a warm cloth is nice to aid in some of the discomforts.

      Gently massaging the area could also help you in the meantime.

      Wishing you all the best, and try to relax as much as possible. 🙂 It’s almost over!

  4. QUESTION:
    Has anyone here ever suffered with PAINFUL degenerating fibroids during pregnancy?
    I had this problem with my first pregnancy. I found it excruciatingly painful. But from what I have read online, no-one considered it that painful. On ivillage.co.uk they said that normal painkillers were prescribed for the condition. When I had it, i had to be on pethedine and it was still painful.

    Have i got a lower pain threshold than everyone else or is the condition extremely painful???

    (ps i am pregnant again, i hope i dont get it again!!)
    Hi Kryptonite!! Thanks for your answer -actually i also have fibroids which are not painful, but i am specifically talking about women whose fibroids begin to degenerate during pregnancy – that is when it becomes painful.

    And i had them in my first pregnancy, I am no longer in pain thank goodness!! I just pray that i dont have another episode with this my 2nd pregnancy.

    • ANSWER:
      I had fibroids with my first pregnancy and also again with this pregnancy (my 2nd oNe) but I am here to say that I don’t even know I have them. INfact if the dr. didn’t tell me then I wouldn’t ever know. They don’t hurt one bit.

      Sorry you are in pain.
