Depends.: I have seen women react extremely variably to labor pains; some tolerate them stoically without even any intravenous analgesia and others complain about them before, during and after labor incessantly as an unbearable torture. Nowadays, with epidural analgesia, most women go through labor unscathed and comfortable. Talk to a perinatal psychologist if your fear is affecting your mood.

A 30-year-old male asked about a 25-year-old female:

How can we recognise the labour pain and what are the symptoms.

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Ivelisse Rivera-Godreau
Family Medicine 24 years experience
Labor symptoms: Usually contractions feel like cramps and or tightens in your pelvic area. Very similar to a strong menstrual cramp. If this happens every 5-10 mins it is definitely time to go to the hospital. Other symptoms are watery vaginal discharge, bleeding or not feeling the baby move or a lot less than you used to.
