Dr Oz: Can Women Get a Hernia?

Dr. Oz wonders if you would recognize a hernia if you one, or if you know how to prevent them from happening in the first place. They typically involve a bulge or a “popping” sound, but many women often miss or ignore the signs, so Dr. Oz chose an Assistant of the Day to help explain what to look for.

Dr Oz: How To Know If You Have a Hernia

Dr. Oz says in order to know if you have a hernia you have to start by asking yourself 4 simple questions.

  1. Do you have pinching pain in your lower abdomen after lifting?
  2. Do you have a shooting pain in your groin after a coughing fit?
  3. Do you have a pain after straining on the toilet?
  4. Do you have an area of the body where there is pain that stops hurting when you push “in” on the area?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might have a hernia. Dr. Oz says one of the classic examples for a hernia in women is when they have a baby and their belly button switches from an “innie” to an “outtie”.
