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. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I just got my period four days ago and every time I sneeze or cough my uterus twitches (there is 0 pain). My period has not been as heavy as it usual. What could this be from? Could I be pregnant and it's actually just implantation bleeding?

I just got my period four days ago and every time I sneeze or cough my uterus twitches (there is 0 pain). My period has not been as heavy as it usual. What could this be from? Could I be pregnant and it's actually just implantation bleeding?

Likely a period, but: Wait. A positive pregnancy test can tell a woman that prior spotting was actually implantation spotting. It is hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have been) or 1 week after starting a "weird" period. ...Read more

Twitching in uterus for a week. Not pregnant. Any explanations?

Twitching in uterus for a week. Not pregnant. Any explanations?

How do you know?: That is a rhetorical question because I'm not aware that anybody really knows exactly what UTERINE TWITCHING feels like. Not saying you don't have it...after all...it's a great big old muscle....but due to it being a deep pelvic organ it's really quite difficult to feel when it's "twitching", "twisted", "tingly" or otherwise, feeling anything unless you're pregnant and fairly far along term. ...Read more

I'm feeling twitching in my uterus when im not pregnant. Is that normal?

Maybe not: The uterus does not have very much nerve sensation, so it is not clear exactly what you are feeling and very well may not be the uterus. It is something you may need to check out further, especially if it is severe and/or worsening. ...Read more

I have just finished ovulating about 2 days ago and since then my uterus has been feeling sore and it hurts to cough, sneeze, laugh to hard, etc...

Common: With ovulation there is always a cyst on one of the ovaries. At the time of ovulation that cyst is about 2 cm in diameter, but after ovulation that cyst could enlarge to the size of a softball - that could easily explain your symptoms. It would require an ultrasound to be sure if that is what is happening. For most women who form the larger cysts, patience is all the treatment necessary. ...Read more

Does the uterus commonly twitch?

Does the uterus commonly twitch?

A qualified yes: The uterus is a large muscle, so therefore in theory at least it could 'twitch'. The real question is whether you could feel it if it did, and that is unlikely since the uterus has a minimal sensory nerve supply. Other explanation for what you are feeling need to be considered. ...Read more

It's my 4th day of period. I have been feeling flutter/twitch in my uterus. Most of the time it goes away when I change position. Is it serious?

No: It's hard to tell what you're describing but I doubt that it's serious. If you are having other problems with your menstrual cycle, pain with intercourse, or other uterine issues, you can make apt with gynecologist and have an ultrasound done to see if there's a problem with the uterus. ...Read more
