Hello I was once pregnant back in 2013 and I did an abortion, so since then, I have pain that I do not understand it feels like a have a scar on my womb and sometimes like I want to going to the toilet. I got pregnant in 2015 and everything was fine but again the pain is back and it just last maybe 5 minutes and go. I don't know what to do coz I once went to the doctor but I did not get any help. This is painful Thank you

Dear Viwe,

There are many possible causes of lower abdominal pain, other than from the womb. It may be related to your ovaries, gastro-intestinal, musculoskeletal or even urinary system. As this seems to be a longstanding problem since 2013 and you are concerned and feel that it is your womb, you should consult with your gynae and do an ultrasound as a baseline investigation. If your gynae does not find any gynae pathology then he/she may refer you to the other disciplines for further assessment.
