Pain in Vulva During Pregnancy

By Nabta Team

Did you know that you can get shooting pain “down there” during your pregnancy, especially in the third trimester? It occurs when you make sudden movements or the baby moves in the uterus, and is felt like a lightning pain in your vulva and groin area. It is caused by either the baby’s head pressing on your cervix or pressing on nerve endings in your pelvis. Staying active during pregnancy, avoiding tasks that involve twisting, bending, or lifting heavy weights, wearing a support brace, and getting a pregnancy massage are some of the things that will help to relieve the pain you feel in your vulva.
