Abdominal pain in pregnancy is not uncommon. Such pain can be caused by any condition as would be found in the non-pregnant woman. It can also be caused by conditions specific and related only to pregnancy.
Hormonal and other physiological changes occurring in a woman’s body during pregnancy makes her even more prone to conditions that could lead to pain in the abdomen.
This therefore means that any pregnant woman complaining of pain in the abdomen should be taken seriously, and the possible cause of pain should be sought in a methodological pattern.
