Kidney Pain During Pregnancy
December 3, 2009
If you are pregnant and experiencing pain in your kidneys you should always contact your doctor.
Kidney pain is generally caused by a urinary tract infection or kidney stones. Urinary tract infection is not uncommon during pregnancy. Pregnant women are at a higher risk for UTIs because a softening of the urethra occurs due to hormonal changes.
If you are experiencing these symptoms, contact your doctor immediately.
