Pain after pregnancy Lock Rss

Hi,

I gave birth 9.5 weeks ago and a week or so ago I staretd to get a pain across my belly above my belly button... after a few days it went away but now I have the same pain to the right of my belly button (below it) and it is constant pain like if I push my hand there it hurts or I knock it, it hurts... when I lay on it it also hurts.... can this be caused by pregnancy??? It sort of feels like I have pulled a muscle.. should I go to the doctors or is it nothing to worry about...

Hi Dianne,
Thank you for your enquiry. If the discomfort doesn’t settle, you may need to be seen by your doctor. You may have pulled a muscle or it may be something more. Usually at about six weeks following birth, your body has returned to its pre-pregnant state so it may have nothing to do with the birth.
Best wishes,
Alex.
