Pregnancy

Pelvic pain and pressure during 1st trimester

11/30/2006

Question:

I am 6 weeks pregnant and for about 4 days I have had pain and pressure in my pelvic area. Is this normal?

Answer:

Many women notice that sensation, especially in first pregnancies.  As long as the pain is mild, crampy in nature (as compared to sharp) and there is no vaginal bleeding, there is little to be concerned about.
