Pregnancy, Round Ligament Pain (cont.)

Outlook for Round Ligament Pain

If you have been seen by your doctor and know that your pregnancy is not ectopic in location, not associated with bleeding, and not accompanied by uterine contractions, you are probably experiencing one of the more common discomforts of pregnancy.

  • For most women, the pain will go away simply by changing daily activities.
  • Except for rare cases, the pain may last throughout the entire second and third trimesters of your pregnancy.
  • Once your infant is delivered, the pain usually resolves.
