Lower Abdominal Pain

Question:

Hi, I experience low abdominal pain when I go running. If I am pregnant in the early stages is this normal?  Should I stop running? Fran Zimbabwe

Answer:

Dear Fran,

If you are pregnant, it is usually not advisable to do strenuous exercise within the first trimester. I would therefore consult you doctor/obstetrician for further guidance and discontinue running if your symptoms are persistent.

Kind regards
