Pain in Early Pregnancy

Pain in Early Pregnancy

Pain can commonly occur during the early weeks of pregnancy and is often mild and crampy in nature. This is usually caused by the production of pregnancy hormones that can cause constipation or trapped wind, giving a feeling of bloating.

If you have pain in early pregnancy it is advisable to have an ultrasound scan to exclude an ectopic pregnancy or an ovarian cyst, particularly if the pregnancy has been conceived through assisted conception methods.

If the pain is localised to one side and accompanied by a feeling of breathlessness, dizziness or pain in the shoulder tip, urgent medical advice should be sought.

Sometimes the pain in early pregnancy can be caused by a urinary tract infection. If this is the case then it is usually accompanied by the feeling of needing to urinate urgently and more often or stinging and pain when passing urine. If any of these symptoms are present it is important to inform your GP so that a sample of urine can be tested.

Ovarian cysts are common in early pregnancy and do not require any intervention if they are small. Occasionally they can become larger and may require some treatment later once the pregnancy is well established. You will be advised if an ovarian cyst is present when you are scanned.

It is safe to take Paracetamol during the early weeks of pregnancy if necessary, but do not exceed the recommended dose and if the pain is not controlled, seek medical advice.
