4 Months Pregnant and Ache in My Vaginal Which Prevents Me from Walking.

This is my 5 pregnancy. Which all have and will be C-Sections. I am 4 months pregnant and I have 7 days with a bad pain in my vaginal. The pain prevents me from walking or moving. I had a Dr. appt. yesterday and asked my Dr. However, He mentioned some medical words that I was not familiar with. So I asked him what was it basicly. The Dr. said it was kind of like a Hemoroid but through the front. I didn't quite understand so I want to see if anyone here has a clue to what I may have. I do plan to get a hold of the Dr. tomorrow to ask him again. But meantime I am so curious to know what it is?

What can I do next?

So What Happened?™

Well I spoke to the nurse from my Dr.'s office today. She said: All pregnacies are different. However, It was most likely that my pelvic area was streching and that everything inside is moving and getting crazy in there. She said for me not be alarm. This is normal and that for me to rest and put my feet up on pillows. Also, to take Tylenol for the pain if I need to be up and down. However, if I was to be in an unbearable pain and bleeding to go to the emergency. Thanks so much for all the responses. The responses helped me to be at ease. Thank You, Abigail

I am pregnant with #3 right now at 33 weeks. I had this at around 5 months. I had to get this special support to wear and I had to wear a belly belt. It lasted about a month or two, but it is better now. It was those veins previously mentioned down in that area. With all the growing and ligaments stretching everywhere down there, that is what I equated it to. I can't do too much in one day like too much cleaning or walking a lot. I have to really watch it which I don't normally do. I try to do too much and then I pay for it later in the afternoon when I can no longer walk.

joey, this is called vulvar varicosities. it really is like having vaginal hemorrhoids. hemorrhoids are just varicose veins in the rectum or anus. some women get them in the vagina or vulva instead. you can get something called a V2 support. try googling "V2 support" & see if you find anything that you think would help you. other than that, the best you can do is to rest with your feet elevated as much as possible--use 2 or 3 pillows & really get them up there. ice may help as well. good luck!

I knew of someone else that had this experience. Her doctor told her to lie down as much as possible with her feet elevated and to use an ice pack for the discomfort. As far as I know there is not much else you can do.
Sorry but hang in there!

There is such a thing as vaginal varicose veins or Vulval Varicosities. Basically the same varicose veins some women get on their legs during pregnancy can develop in the vaginal area. Although uncomfortable, they do usually go away shortly after birth.

Good Luck,

I have had pain with each of my pregnancies (3) that causes me varying discomfort, it is called subrapubic pain (differant from the Vaginal Hemeroids you mention) and it is simply the streching of the ligaments in the front of the pelvis where the bones meet. If this is what it is there is nothing you can do about it except change the way you get up and down and try to adjust your walk/stride to cause yu less pain.

It usually goes away or at least eases, but sometimes it can cause pain throughout a pregnancy.

Good luck!

I had the same issue on my first pregnancy. It feels as if you did the splits w/o stretching.

My ob/gyn was not alarmed. She said it was common. I do remember her saying it was the stretching of the ligaments in the pelvic area.

Hi I know that you got a lot of response for your question but when I read this, it brought back memories when I was carrying my little girl and my older girls would laugh at me b/c when I would complain about my cookie hurting, that's what we call it "cookie" they would say "What time is it?","B/c it's that time again mom's cookie is hurting". I had this pain around 7:00 pm everyday or when I did a lot of walking, which was every day just about. One day we went to Fiesta Texas and I had to use a wheel chair b/c I couldn't stand it I just couldn't walk anymore and we wanted to stay to watch the light show. It was terrible, I was told it was my pelvic bone opening getting ready for the birth, sometimes it would even pop like it was going to break open like a wish bone lol, I know honey it's very painful.All kidding a side,just get some rest and if you go anywhere you are going to do a lot of walking just ask for a wheel chair it will help you get around a lot better I just wish I had used a wheelchair a lot more often,God knows I really needed that relief. God Bless You and may you have a blessing birth with not to must discomfort. I miss not being able to carry a baby no more I came to the end of my rope can't have anymore but God has blessed me and I am grateful.

If it feels like a cramp I had something similar when I was pregnant with my first child, only I got them when I would sit for long periods of time. The doctor called them Braxton Hicks Contractions. If that's what they are, its not much you can do about them by try and figure out what helps to ease the pain. For me it was walking. But you should definitely talk to your doctor again. Good Luck!
