Ever since giving birth to my firstborn, the first two days of my menstrual cycle will always be coupled with extreme soreness in my pubic area. I assume it is due to the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles as a result of childbirth. It can be rather crippling as I will not be able to carry heavy weights (can't carry my children) due to the pain, and will have to sit down or even lie down in order for the pain to stop. This has been ongoing for four years. I would like to ask if this is a common problem? What is the cause? Does this pose any long term health concerns? And if there is anything that can be done to help alleviate the pain? Thank you.
