069 Round Ligament Pain

069 Round Ligament Pain

A Common Pain in Pregnancy


The round ligaments are ligaments that sit near the uterus and, pass near the inguinal canal and end in the labia majora. It is a very common report in pregnancy to experience pain in the round ligament area.   The pain is most common in the second trimester and can be on either the right or left side and often described as a pulling sensation. It is thought to be caused by irritation of the nerve fibers along the ligament.  In this episode, we discuss treatments and the best course of action in pregnancy.
