my lower abdomen hurts when i pee

i am 5 weeks pregnant and my lower abdomen has started to hurt when i pee one the right side mostly and a little lower on the left side. a couple weeks ago i was in the er for sevre pain in my lower abdomen the drs said it was either an ectopic or a ruptured cyst. they did tests and found out i was a couple weeks along but my hormone levels at the end of the week went from 50 to 250 in a couple day. is the pain more likely to be a ectopic than something else?

  • Try to drink plenty of water. You could just be dehydrated. I have that same problem and when I told my doctor that is what he said so anytime I start to hurt I will drink a big glass of water and be fine. If that doesn't work you should call your OB you could also have a uti.

  • I had really horrible pains in my right side all the time, for a few days. At the time I wasn't pregnant, but it ended up being a bladder infection. I agree with PP drink lots of water, and try to rest. If it gets unbearable I'd call the OB, just to be sure!

  • Have your dr check your bladder and kidney's with a simple pee test. Those types of infections are VERY common in pregnant women and easily treated. Hope you feel better soon and congrats on the baby!
