Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Why would my uterus be "very contracted" if im not pregnant, ovulating, nor menstrating?

Why would my uterus be "very contracted" if im not pregnant, ovulating, nor menstrating?

Direction?: I haven't heard that term used to describe a uterus. Maybe the person that said that to you was speaking about the direction of your uterus? Uteruses (uteri) can be tipped forward, anteverted; not tipped at all or straight; or tipped backward (retroverted). Maybe that was what they were referring to? All variations of the tilt or tip of a uterus are normal, by the way.

Pregnant and notice uterus contracts during orgasm. Normal? Obgyn?

Pregnant and notice uterus contracts during orgasm. Normal? Obgyn?

Yes: Mild uterine contractions are normal during orgasm. This is of no consequence in an uncomplicated pregnancy. If you are at risk for premature labor, placental abruption, or placenta previa you should probably avoid intercourse. Check with you obstetrician.

Is it ok for uterus to tighten or contract at 15 weeks pregnant? What could that mean?  

Is it ok for uterus to tighten or contract at 15 weeks pregnant? What could that mean?  

Previable contractio: It is not ok. Preterm and especially previable uterine contractions are bad news and could lead to preterm birth or pregnancy loss respectively. See your obstetrician to determine your particular diagnosis and plan of care as soon as possible. You may need to treat a urinary tract infection, take some tylenol, (acetaminophen) relax on bedrest, or be admitted to the hospital for observation.

I am not pregnant, but when I sneeze the muscles of my uterus contract and stay contracted for up to 10 minutes. What is causing this?  

I am not pregnant, but when I sneeze the muscles of my uterus contract and stay contracted for up to 10 minutes. What is causing this?  

Nerves: It is really cool in some ways, but I can understand the concern. The nerves in the pelvis that make the muscles contract to sneeze can be closely related to the nerves to the uterus. For some people, this means that sneezing or hard coughing makes the uterus contract. If you get a cold, Ibuprofen can help decrease the pretty painful contractions.

Is it safe to masterbate, orgasm and have sex while you have a subchorionic hematoma in early and late pregnancy? Orgasms make your uterus contract?

Is it safe to masterbate, orgasm and have sex while you have a subchorionic hematoma in early and late pregnancy? Orgasms make your uterus contract?

See answer: The presence of ultrasound-detected subchorionic hemorrhage (hematoma) increases risk of miscarriage, stillbirth, abruptio placentae, and preterm labor. Depending on your findings and md, may advise strict bed rest, refrain from lifting heavy objects, and avoid exercise. In most cases, you’ll be asked to avoid sexual intercourse (and masturbation?) until the hematoma dissolves and disappears.

My uterus wall thin can I get pregnant?

My uterus wall thin can I get pregnant?

Yes: I'm not sure how you know that your uterine wall is thin? That typically isn't a diagnosis that is given without very detailed imaging, such as a mri. Having said that maybe you had surgery previously and doctor told you it was thin? Regardless, uterus is very strong and likely can hold a pregnancy even if it's 'thin' as you say. See doctor for more information, though, so you can understand.

Is a thick uterus wall normal while pregnant?

Is a thick uterus wall normal while pregnant?

Maybe: The uterus changes throughout pregnancy. A fibroid may appear as a 'thick' uterine wall, though they are usually distinct on ultrasound. A contraction will also make the uterine mall appear thicker. Later in pregnancy the lower uterine walls may appear thinner. You may want to ask your provider to clarify what was described as thick.

Can you still get pregnant with a tilted uterus?

Can you still get pregnant with a tilted uterus?

Yes: A tilted uterus alludes to the positioning of the uterus. The uterus can be position forward, straight up-and-down or backwards. It's similar to being left-handed or right-handed. The positioning should not affect conception.

How does your uterus shift when you are pregnant?

How does your uterus shift when you are pregnant?

Up, Out and Right!: In general, the uterus "grows" out of the pelvis by the start of the second trimester (14 weeks). Additionally, with ascent from the pelvis, the uterus usually undergoes rotation with tilting to the right (dextro-rotation), probably due to presence of the rectosigmoid colon on the left side. This adds to the symptoms of "soreness" at each side of the uterus called "round ligament" pain. This is qu.

Where is my uterus positioned at 17weeks pregnant?

Where is my uterus positioned at 17weeks pregnant?

See below: Your uterus will be in the middle of your abdomen/pelvis about half way between your pubic bone and belly button. By 20 weeks it will be at the level of your belly button. After 20 weeks your doctor will use a tape measure to measure the height of the uterus. This measurement will usually be as many centimeters as you're weeks plus or minus two. Example at 24 weeks your uterus will be 22-26 cm.
