Pain in the kidneys during pregnancy can signal the development of such a serious pathology as pyelonephritis - inflammation of the kidneys.

Hormonal reorganization of the body during pregnancy can also cause a negative effect on the functioning of the ureters, resulting in the formation of stagnation of urine. The risk of pyelonephritis also exists for women who have already had pyelonephritis or cystitis in the past. The development of pyelonephritis is a threat to pregnancy, can also cause toxicosis and anemia.
