I'm new to this but just wanted to share my experience as there was nothing about this when I was worried and searching.
So I had a miscarriage at six and a half weeks. All came naturally, the first couple of days were intense with cramps and back ache as is normal.
Since the miscarriage however I also experienced unusual 'pressure' in my rectum. It felt like something heavy pressing down around it.
As it was my first miscarriage I called the birth clinic for reassurance but they had "never heard of that before!!" Concerned they sent me for an early pregnancy scan.. which all turned out to be normal, nothing needing any assistance or help. They also said "never heard of this before!! Go see your GP." So I went to my GP where I had a rectal exam, whereby again everything was normal and he had "never heard of that before!"
Obviously, none of those medical experts put my mind at rest or could tell me what was wrong.
After googling and talking to friends/family I can only assume it was brought on by all the cramping in the pelvic floor area. It is all pretty close to each other in there after all. A week on I still have that 'pressure' feeling although it finally seems to be getting less intense.
I'm intrigued to know if anyone has had this random symptom after a miscarriage or if I really am an odd ball with this!?
