But how soon does its effect appear? It depends on age, correctness of exercise, dedication...

Is pelvic pain in pregnancy normal?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in

Yes: Pelvic pain or pelvic pressure can be normal in pregnancy. However, it can also be an indication of a more severe problems such as a tubal pregnancy or a bleeding ovarian cyst. In later trimesters the pubic bone can stretch or even separate, also cause pain with walking. Lastly ovarian cysts can occur and twist, call torsion. Any time you have severe pelvic pain you should see your gynecologist.

Scrotal pain in the vas deferans--can it be torsion?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Howard Tay
Urology 31 years experience
Scrotal pain: This question can't be answered properly on this forum. I recommend that you seek immediate medical attention to ensure that you don't have torsion. Torsion is time-sensitive and can only be diagnosed by physical exam and either a scrotal ultrasound or testicular scan. Seek immediate medical attention is my best advice to you. www.peedoc.com @drhtay.
