Probably: If the pain recurs, see your OB for an ultrasound to ensure no risk of an ectopic pregnancy. A tubal pregnancy (ectopic) is dangerous because it can rupture and lead to life-threatening bleeding. If you had previous pelvic infections, ectopic, adhesions, endometriosis, or recurrent pain; see your doc asap. Take care. ...Read more

I'm 8 weeks pregnant and had a sharp pain in my left shoulder when I would take a deep breath a couple weeks ago. It's gone now but I'm worried..

I'm 8 weeks pregnant and had a sharp pain in my left shoulder when I would take a deep breath a couple weeks ago. It's gone now but I'm worried..

No worries: If the pain is gone then there is really nothing to be concerned about. I assume you were worried about a possible blood clot in the lung? Do you have risk factors for it (other than being pregnant)? Any family history? If it was a PE the pain would likely not have gone away. Enjoy your pregnancy! ...Read more

I'm 8 weeks pregnant I keep having sharp pains all the way down my right side leg what does it meen?

Not sure: You are early to have issues, fron pregnancy, causing pain in the leg. Posterior leg pain can be sciatica. The femoral nerve runs in the anterior leg and can get impinged with the belly. Lateral leg pain is uncertain but make sure you wear good shoes, unlikely from an eight week pregnancy. ...Read more

Need to be examined: Pain between collarbone (clavicle) and shoulder accompanied by sharp pain in the neck taking a breath could be due to various causes, among them:

Are consistent painful cramps and occasional sharp pains in my lower stomach normal signs in the 1st trimester of pregnancy? It keeps me up at night.

Common: Cramping in the 1st trimester without any bleeding or spotting is common, and not typically a sign that anything is wrong. Sharp pains originating from your uterus are not common, but again not necessarily a sign that the pregnancy is abnormal.

However constipation is very common in pregnancy, and can explain both the cramping and sharp pains. ...Read more

My boyfriend and I are trying to get preganent. Recently when I cough I get a sharp pain in my left ovary. What would cause this pain?

Possible ovulation: If you have an ovulatory cyst (normal) on the ovary it may be a sign you are close to ovulation, and it can be painful. Of course there are other reasons for ovary pain and if it persists you probably need a sonogram to asses it. You might check an ovulation predictor kit to see if you are ovulating and fertile. ...Read more

An internet search shows an abortion is legal if done before the fetus is viable (usually before 24 wks); or at anytime when abortion is necessary to protect the life or health of the woman, or if the fetus has a serious genetic defect or abnormality. One should visit a local doctor for details because some states may have different rules. ...Read more
