Pelvic/genital pain

I went to the OB today and explained to her about the weird pelvic pain I am experiencing. I am aware that muscles are stretching and that can cause pain and tenderness but this feeling is so weird. A few weeks ago it started as pressure in my vaginal area (and my butt cheeks, too). When I walk, get out of bed, etc. It hurts. Well, a couple of days ago it radiated to my labia and this is real PAIN!! It feels like after you have had rough or repeated sex (sorry if TMI but you know what I mean). Very sore and hard to walk. My OB said if it gets worse, that I can get physical therapy as it could interfere with L&D!! AHHH!! Anybody else experience this and do you have any remedies for relief?

  • it is called Pubic Symphysis and is treatable with physical therapy. If you ladies are experiencing it and it is interrupting your life, tell your OB. Apparently, there is relief out there.

  • I am 22 weeks and have had it for several weeks now. The labia pain is new and that was what had me concerned. I am carrying high so for me, that is not the reason. Did you do anything for it?
