What is Pelvic Girdle Pain ?

Pelvic Girdle pain also called PGD or symphysis pubic dysfunction SPD often appears around the fifth month of pregnancy when the belly gets heavier. Also some women can find themselves ‘stuck’ after hoovering or by simply getting up from a chair. This intense pain travels along the leg and therefore some think this could be related to sciatica. The feeling is the same than sciatica but sciatica is chronic back pain while pelvic girdle pain is temporary and can be treated easily.

Symptoms of Pelvic Girdle Pain PGP

During pregnancy, sometimes as soon as the first semester and until right after giving birth, twinge and pinch like pains can be felt in the back.
The pelvis is painful and the pain can only be felt from one side and from the buttock to the tight or from the hip to the lower abdomen. This very much looks like sciatica except the pain is not felt all the way to the feet and is not constant as a change in posture can relieve it.

Why Pelvic Girdle Pain appears?

The most obvious is the growth of the baby, which moves your gravity centre forward. To avoid falling forward and to maintain balance, you pull your upper body backwards which increases your lower back’s arch.
The second reason is that with the growth of the belly, your abdominal belt is stretched more than usual. Your abdominal muscles lose their tonus and strength; therefore the normal balance between the abdominal and the lower back muscles change and create this painful sensation in your lower back or pelvis.
The last reason is hormonal – the increase of oestrogen and relaxin secretion distends your ligament and decreases the tonus of your abdominal muscles.
Not surprisingly, these the factors combined with stress often lead to lower back pain or pelvic girdle pain (PGP).
