Quickening (Definition)

Daily quickening refers to looking for approximately 10-12 kicks over about 10-12 hours. Quickening is when a pregnant woman first notices baby movements or baby kicks.

My lower abdomen hurts after masturbating for a long time. Should I be worried?

My lower abdomen hurts after masturbating for a long time. Should I be worried?

Not usually.: Assuming no vigorous penetration is done, lower abdominal soreness may simple result from uterine spasm that may occur with orgasm (clitoral/vaginal). Also, some women with endometriosis may note pain with sex/penetration but not necessarily with clitoral orgasm. Without hore history, it sounds more like uterine "soreness" from orgasmic spasm. Doesnt sound like anything pathological. ...Read more

All breech babies should be delivered via C-Section b/c the risk of vaginal delivery is too great (head entrapment and fetal death due to cord compression). Only in RARE situations are vaginal deliveries performed. ...Read more
