Bladder and bowel problems during pregnancy

Posted By Gyno-Blog

During pregnancy, women experience a few unpleasant conditions like constipation, frequent urination, incontinence, haemorrhoids (piles), etc.

๐ŸšHaving a healthy diet and doing regular exercise can help make your pregnancy easier to an extent.

โ— Constipation

You may face constipation very early in pregnancy because of the hormonal changes in your body.

โ— Haemorrhoids

It is also known as โ€˜pilesโ€™. They are enlarged and swollen veins in or around the lower rectum and anus. When youโ€™re pregnant, haemorrhoids can occur because of constipation and/or pressure due to the enlarging baby and uterus.

โ— Frequent urination

Frequent urination often starts in early stages of your pregnancy. Sometimes it continues right through pregnancy. In later pregnancy, frequent urination happens due to the pressure baby exerts on your bladder.

โ— Incontinence
Incontinence is a common problem. It can affect you during and after pregnancy. Sometimes pregnant women cannot prevent a sudden spurt of urine or a small leak when they cough, laugh or sneeze. It also happens when they move suddenly, or just get up from a sitting position. But, don’t worry! This is temporary. This happens because the pelvic floor muscles relax slightly to prepare for the babyโ€™s delivery.

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸปWhatever discomfort you have, talk to your doctor without fail. Your doctor will suggest when and what to do to ease your irritations or pain.

Happy pregnancy ๐Ÿ™‚
