How do you get pelvic rest?

My doctor said I have to rest my pelvis.

You would have to have bed rest to rest your pelvis. When walking around, your pelvis is needed for this activity.

The best way I can think of the get pelvic rest is to just lay down. That should work, and if it still hurts you can always put a pillow under your lower back to give it a little more lift so that it is resting higher than the rest of your body.

Pelvic rest means no sexual activity, no straining down during urination, and nothing involving your lower reproductive organs. It's not the same as bed rest.

Pelvic rest is no sex and no hard working out or excersise. It means just as it says rest your pelvis.

Pelvic rest is prescribed when there is a problem with a pregnancy. Specifics of what to avoid include no intercourse, no lifting more than 15 lbs, and lying down frequently.
