Hello Midren,

Where is the hernia? How big is it?

A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. Hernias are most common in the abdomen, but they can also appear in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin areas.

Have you seen a doctor about this? A hernia will not affect your sexuality, but depending on location and size, you may have some discomfort or pain during intercourse.

Hello again,

A hernia does not affect your fertility or ability to become pregnant.

Your obstetrician will monitor you during your pregnancy and keep a close eye that another hernia does not develop.
