Lower Back Pain During Pregnancy - How You Can Deal With it?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist,
Lower Back Pain During Pregnancy - How You Can Deal With it?

If you are experiencing lower back pain during pregnancy, you should know that it is a common complaint. The lower back pain may occur because of several factors associated with pregnancy. You gain weight, your center of gravity shifts and your hormones relax the ligaments present in your pelvic joints. There are several ways by which you can reduce your lower back pain during pregnancy. They are as follows:

  1. Practice good posture: As the baby grows inside you, your center of gravity changes in a forward direction. You may feel like falling forward and may lean back for prevention. This strains the lower back muscles and causes back pain during pregnancy. You need to maintain a good posture. Always stand tall and straight, hold your chest up high, and keep your shoulders backwards and relaxed. You should not lock your knees.
  2. Get proper gear: Get adequate gear for dealing with lower back pain during pregnancy. You must wear low heeled shoes having good arch support. Avoid wearing flat heeled shoes and high heels, which will shift your balance more forward, thereby increasing the chances of falling. You can also opt for a maternity support belt. This additional support might be helpful for you.
  3. Lift properly: While you are lifting an object, you should squat down, lifting your legs and arms. Do not bend at your waist and lift with your back. Know your limits before lifting anything.
  4. Sleep on your side: Sleep on your sides keeping your knees bent, instead of your back during pregnancy. You may also use support pillows between your knees, under your abdomen and at your back.
  5. Hot and cold massage: Although this method is not effective for long term relief, massaging your lower back with a hot pad followed by an ice pack may be effective for temporary pain relief.
  6. Engage in regular physical activity: Regular physical activity helps you in keeping your back strong and also relieves pain during pregnancy. You should opt for mild exercises such as walking and water exercises. You should consult a physical therapist for showing you effective stretches and aerobic exercises which are beneficial.

You can try stretching your lower back, resting your hands and knees and keeping your head in line with your back. Pull your stomach in, rounding your back a bit, and hold the position for some seconds. Several other complementary therapies are also effective in curing lower back pain during pregnancy.

Today morning, my sister's menses has started. After that she started feeling uneasy. Then pain in and around stomach and also she was having difficulty in breathing. What is the cause for it?

If breathing difficulty is during the pain only, without any previous asthma or heart problem, then simple pain killers will work well. If she is feeling weak and also getting fainting attacks, she should see a doctor to check her BP and pulse. Usually pain coming with normal periods coming in time, will be severe on the first 2 days. If it comes regularly every month, she will need an ultrasound and blood test like CA125. Best is to visit a GYN for correct diagnosis and treatment.

My periods are irregular..

BHMS
Homeopath,
My periods are irregular..
Hello, Kindly explain me what type of irregularity is there - are you getting periods frequently/ getting delayed/ much bleeding during the menses? Since how long you have been suffering from this problem? Any associated symptoms or complaints? Any medical condition do you have? Have you got your investigations done (if yes, share the reports with me)? Answer all these questions for proper diagnosis and proper treatment. Any nutritional deficiency can also lead to irregularity. Take more of green vegetables, nuts, salads, seasonal fruits, yellow coloured veggies, milk & milk products, plenty of water and enough of sleep & rest. Take homoeopathic medication for your irregular menses – Schwabe's Pulsatilla 200/ once daily for 10 days (not to take during menstrual flow), Schwabe's Five Phos. And Alfaalfa Tonic – both thrice daily for 1 month. There after revert me back..take care.

I am a 27 years old unmarried girl. I did intercourse with my fiancee so many times. I feel like my vagina was get loosed. So please suggest me wh type of treatment I use to take. And suggest me a wh type of a doctor I use to consult.

As you are not married, surgery is not the option for you. You should do Kegel exercises to tighten your vagina. It should be done continuously for 3 to 4 months to get the results. For doing Kegel exercises you have to tighten vagina with the help of surrounding muscles. To contract the correct muscles, you can insert a finger inside your vagina and try tightening around your finger. You don't need to put your finger every time you do the exercise. Once you tighten your vagina and its muscles, you start counting from 1 to 10 and then only relax the vagina. Keep repeating similar exercises 5-6 times in a single setting.

As for as internal stitches are concerned, they heal with adhesions. Or on common terms it is called knot's or ghant ban Jana. Therefore you need 2 min of massage over healed stitches to break adhesions.

No need to take any sex pill. Do foreplay for long time and during penetration of penis, keep your feet above bed that in the air to avoid contraction of pelvic muscles which can hinder penetration.

Emergency contraception has its own failure rate. So if she misses her period please do a pregnancy test. Also this pill can also delay period as it is a high dose of hormone

yes you can get pregnant, rest everything is fine but your ultrasound report says that you have polycystic ovaries. This may take time for you in conceiving, also tell do you have a regular cycle or not. Also get these test done on Day 2 of your periods: FSH LH TSH AMH and share the report will help further

Hi It's difficult to treat this by medicines alone. Her dislike for sex could be due to pain, strained relationship with you, tiredness due to child rearing or a part of depression. So we need to find the reason for disliking

Sometimes the breast is not completely empty of its milk. Then it starts paining. This can get infected also. Show to your gynaecologist.

I am 26 year old female. Is it necessary to rest for 30 minutes after having an intercourse? And what is the best position to get pregnant easier?

Sexologist, Pune
It is a person specific choice whether or not to rest after intercourse. Most people would enjoy a cuddle and snooze. Missionary position is the best to get pregnant but of the quality of sperms is good one can get pregnant in any position or any interval of intercourse.

Hello, pricking pain during intercourse could be due to inadequate lubrication or even vaginitis. So a vaginal swan culture is recommended before any lubricants are tried for.
