Hi all....

 i have been having aching pains in my womb area ever since i gave birth to my beautiful little girl almost a year ago. in the beginning i thought it was my body just getting itself back into place,,,but i thought it would have gone away by now.

its not all the time ...but a lot of the time.

and sex is very painful too,,,the pain is in my womb aswell - its liek shooting pains.

 Im a little worried but dont want to waste the docs time if this is normal?!

Hi Nicky,

I had the achey womb too (like constant menstrual pains), and still do at times. I constantly went to the doc and was fobbed off with it's your body getting back to normal and then when my LO was about 9 months they decided it was irritable bowel! Weird as i always described menstrual type pains, but they stuck by that it's irritable bowel and that it has presents itself in many different type pains. However, sex was never painful and i was always told that if sex was painful or you bled after to get checked out. So i would go to your gp chick just to be sure, don't worry about wasting their time it's their job.

When my pains first started to really bother me i begged for a smear as i was worried something was wrong, but they won't give them where i am til you turn 25, i finally got one (after turning 25 lol!) and thankfully all is good, but it's put my mind at rest having had had that aspect of things checked. so push for a smear hun just so you can put your mind at ease.

Hope my waffling has helped and keep me posted!

Hi Nicky,

Let me know how it goes at the doc and do push for a smear because if nothing else it will put your mind at ease to have that side of things checked.
