Can pelvic pain have a negative impact on pregnancy? If so, how?

I'm not so sure that pelvic pain in general has a negative impact on pregnancy, because actually, some of the conditions are actually improved when the patient does become pregnant. So I would not say that any of the pelvic pain symptoms that we have would have a negative impact on a pregnancy.

   

Pelvic pain does not have a direct impact on pregnancy. In fact, some conditions, such as endometriosis and painful periods, improve when a women becomes pregnant. In that sense, pelvic pain symptoms do not have a negative impact on pregnancy.
