I have had these shooting pains in my butt but only when I get up after waking up or sitting down a certain way, picking up my kids etc. I have been to the chiro, not helping yet, am doing hip exercises and just praying that God will help heal it. It hurts!

I don't have pains in my anus, however I feel the same sharp pains in my butt cheek.

I have been having these pains for a long time now and they only come once every 2 months and in the middle of the night for up to an hour - v.v.sore. I would just like to say that if these symptoms are similar to yours then you should def. look at this article. Check out this website
It answered some of my questions about this annoying pain in my rear. Apparently the medical term is "proctalgia fugax". Thanks christine for pointing it out, feeling a bit better about it now.

Yes i have felt this pain as we speak and its the same type of sharp pain in the abdomen but in my anus i would like to know also is this normal when your pregnant in your 6th week?

I had horrible "knife in the butt" pain during my labor and still have it occasionally 6 months after the baby was born. It will sometimes stop me in my tracks and I can't explain it to people because it is too embarrassing. The doctors and nurses at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, IL didn't seem to know what I was talking about when I described the pain and they deliver about 10,000 babies each year. The rectum pain was excruciating and unbearable. The epidural didn't even take that pain away completely, at least until I had a c-section after 36 hours of induced labor, then I couldn't feel anything. Before surgery the pain was so bad I couldn't push, it felt like my whole back side was going to rip out, I just cried and cried and begged for more pain killers. I felt a little cheated since I'd been watching these shows where laboring women are given epidurals and were somewhat able to enjoy the birth of their baby. The only time it felt a little better during labor was when the nurse or doctor was examining me and put pressure close to the area of pain through the vaginal wall, it was very weird. I never talked about it again as I don't plan to have more children but I think they should come up with something to help relieve that pain, at the time I even asked for some kind of shot in my rectum but they looked at me like I was crazy. No one seemed to know what to do for me.

On 4th pregnancy now -- and all of my "butt pains" were contractions. Felt like I hadn't had a bowel movement in years .... I never had the tightening of the belly or period crampy feelings with contractions....just the butt pains.

I have been experiencing pains in my anus as well....and it's really scary! I'm wondering if this sharp pain, quick spasm thing is a sign of pregnancy?

Maraen - September 20th, 2005 10:16 AM

Oh its so nice to hear that others are experiencing the same butt pain with their pregnancy! Even though it is horribly uncomfortable. I have been experiencing this for about 7 weeks 32 weeks. When I asked my doctor he had two thoughts on was either the baby pushing its head down there, and due to a UTI i had, i am 80%thinned so I can just be feeling it more, or the fact that I have a tilted uterus that causes the baby to lay a little differently than normal. Do you have either of those?

i get these pains also but i normally get them when I cant go to the bathroom. I am very constipated!!

I have pain in my left butt cheek off and on. I think it is a nerve. I am a mother of 4 and is not pregnant but have had this pain for a few year. I can't continue living this way excepting this pain. I am going to the doctor. they have to do something

I felt goofy writing "sharp pains in anus" at Google, but glad I did ... now I know I'm not alone.
I didn't have them when I was pregnant, but am now 2 weeks after delivery and having them frequently. I think today it was because I was trying to do too much ... carrying too much and put too much pressure down there!

I notice this too. I especially noticed it after some particulary rough sex. Usually doggy style. (Sorry, not trying to be crude)

t - November 16th, 2005 2:09 AM

i thought i was the only one who experienced those type of pains. i am almost 38 weeks preg. and have been haveing sharp pains mostly in my vagina; but i have no clue what it is. i guess its normal because my doctor doesnt take them very seriously when i tell him about them.

MP - November 29th, 2005 1:47 PM

I'm 6 months pregnant and I occasionally get those sharp pains. I tried asking a couple of friends if they ever got it when they were pregnant and they said they never experienced it. Mine only lasts for about 5 seconds then it goes away. It's a weird and painful feeling. Can't really explain it. You're not the only one!!!
