Yes: I hate to call pain "normal" but it is very common. If the pain is accompanied by vaginal bleeding, you should contact your doctor right away. Some causes of pelvic pain are treatable: such as bladder infections, low back pain, etc. Some seem to be related to pelvic pressure due to vascular congestion or stretching of scar tissue (adhesions) from previous surgeries.

Growing baby: Most often the weight of the growing baby can contribute to discomfort in the pelvic area. Also, a woman's body is changing throughout the pregnancy and some of the joints and ligaments are changing as well which can cause pain. If you experience bleeding or severe pain it is important to tell your physician.

Possibly: They are of two types. The leiomyoma occurs in the skin or gut but the common form is the uterine fibroid. Rhabdomyomas are rare tumors of muscles, they occur in childhood and often become malignant assuming this is a uterine fibroid, if it were in the proper anatomic location it could cause vascular compromise, nerve compression, pelvic cramping or even a referred pain pattern.

May be normal but: You need to get checked by your doctor. There are lots of possible causes for galactorrhea (leaving milky fluid) and most are easy to deal with. Bottom line - go get a checkup! good luck.

Maybe...: We suggest rest, ice, elevation, compression and NSAID of choice. You don't necessarily have to stop, but you may need to back off some. If it worsens, you may have to stop and get it checked out.
