Pregnancy is a condition in which almost every healthy woman is at least once in a lifetime. This is a wonderful period of life, which leads most women to delight. But, despite this, pregnancy often leads to some discomfort and various malfunctions in the body. One of the frequent problems during pregnancy is constipation. Almost fifty percent of women during pregnancy face this disease. In this article we will talk about constipation, the causes of its appearance and the ways of its treatment.
Firstly, during pregnancy, the uterus grows. This leads to the fact that it begins to squeeze the intestines. The bowel is not able to work in the previous regime, which can lead to the appearance of hemorrhoids.
Hemorrhoids in turn lead to constipation. Another reason for the appearance of constipation in pregnant women is the weak susceptibility of the muscles of the intestine. In the ordinary state, the human body produces special substances that stimulate the normal operation of the intestine. During pregnancy, the amount of these substances is much less. Therefore, the intestine can not work the same way as before.
Treatment of constipation must begin with a diet. You need to eat carrots, cucumbers, beetroot, zucchini, pumpkin, apples and dried fruits. Try to eat as much as possible fermented milk products – kefir, yogurt, and also kvass and sour cabbage soup. Very good with this disease helps prune. It must be taken in the form of infusion. Infusion is made from 100 g of prunes and 200 g of boiling water. Prunes are poured over with boiling water. It adds a small amount of sugar. Everything is covered with a lid and insisted one night. Infusion is drunk half a glass before eating. Plums need to be eaten.
