18 weeks pregnant, pelvic pressure, hip and low back pain. Previous pre-term birth.

Lots of Reasons: When pregnant, there are so many things going on. Your hormones are very different causing your ligaments to stretch quite a bit especially in the pelvis resulting in pain. Also the baby's position can place stress on your spine resulting in bulging discs or even herniated disks causing the sciatica pain. Recommend seeing a pregnancy specialized therapist that can guide you through this. ...Read more

I'm 22 weeks and I'm having strong frequent Braxton Hicks on a regular basis with pelvic pressure. Is this normal?

May be preterm labor: Those regular contractions could be preterm labor. One should be checked out by her Ob-Gyn doctor. That may mean going to the hospital and staying in the Labor and Delivery ward to be monitored to see what is going on. Meanwhile, avoid physical activities, having sex, and bumpy rides to the hospital. A baby born at 22 weeks does not survive, so I hope that uterus calms down. ...Read more

Is it normal at 27.4 weeks to have bad pelvic pain/pressure accompanied with stomach/back pains and increase in discharge ?

Yes, confer with OB: Pelvic and low back pain are common in second and third trimesters. Your ob/gyn will be able to decide if these symptoms are normal, based upon the size of the fetus and position.
If pain radiates down the legs or is increasingly severe, a herniated lumbar disc should be considered. The increase in hormone production (elastin) causes a laxity (relaxing) of the large ligaments around the sacroiliac. ...Read more

I have started having urge to urinate and pelvic pressure around the same time that I have started swimming 3x a week. Could they be related?

Probably not: But maybe. Could be a urinary tract infection, which shouldn't have anything to do with the swimming. But it could be a yeast infection, or vaginitis (bv) - and if that is the cause it may be due to a change in the ph of the vagina that could have been caused by swimming. (not a common cause, but possible). ...Read more

I had a very bad pelvic pain, did blookwork for pregnancy negative. Did ultrasound and vagainal one, I never bleeded before but it did yesterday, why?

Unclear: I assume you are saying that you have never bled after a vaginal US and you did yesterday. You had pain. It could have been that you were about to bleed anyway or you could have a cervicitis and the probe irritated the cervix. The explanation depends on the type and amount of bleeding. Be sure to tell your doctor so you can get the vaginal vault / cervix looked at. ...Read more

Ive had a partial hysterectomy over 8yrs ago, once n a while I will have light bleeding for several hrs after sex, with pelvic pressure. should I be c?

"Partial" surgery: A partial hysterectomy implies, but does not make clear, that your uterus only was removed and not the ovaries. If that is the case, there can be bleeding from granulation tissue or "stretching" of the vaginal cuff post intercourse. Usually the latter is due to low estrogen states in the vagina. See a GYN MD to clarify your situation by examination of the area. ...Read more
