What exactly does the doctor mean by "pelvic rest?"
Asked May 23, 2011, 10:35 PM
I am 10 weeks pregnant, and had some bad pain in my lower abdomen last night, followed by a very light pink tint to my discharge.
The spotting following pain worried me so I went to see the doctor this morning. They did an ultrasound, and said everything looks just fine, thank God!
However, the doctor said I needed "pelvic rest." She said my husband and I can't "be intimate" for 2 weeks!
Does this mean there just can't be any penetration? Or does this mean I shouldn't climax at all for 2 weeks? I'm wondering because I know the uterus does contract during orgasm.
(I tried to ask this question to the doc, but she wasn't my normal doc, and didn't seem to want to discuss anything having to do with intimacy.)
