How Do Hernia Present in Women?

Q:
How do hernia present in women?

A:
The symptoms of hernias in women are different from those in men:

  • In women, the hernia is frequently deeper in the body and therefore less visible than in men.
  • A woman with a hernia often has chronic deep pelvic pain or bouts of acute, stabbing pain that come on quickly and lingers.

These hernias are often very small and deep in the abdomen. Because of this, women’s hernias rarely cause any bulging on the skin, which is the classic hernia sign in men.
