Sciatic Pain?? or PGP
Hi

I'm 15 weeks pregnant and for the past week I've had this pain on my right buttock that goes down my thigh. How do I know if it's Pelvic Girdle pain or Sciatic pain. What can I do to ease the pain and does it last thru out pregnancy?

Thank you

You have to be examined by a doctor to see what the problem is. Whether it persists will depend on the problem.
