During pregnancy, expectant mothers often have a delicate problem that you don’t really want to talk about. But at the same time to cope with it is necessary. Let's talk about an awkward problem - the treatment and prevention of hemorrhoids during pregnancy.
Causes of hemorrhoids during pregnancy
By itself, pregnancy, like childbirth, is a risk factor for the development of a hemorrhoid in a woman. The main reason for this trouble is the peculiarities of the blood flow in the small pelvis of a woman. The fact is that the baby, which grows quickly, prevents the free flow of venous blood, which leads to an increase in intra-abdominal pressure. These nuances and lead to hemorrhoids during pregnancy.
It is important to turn to the proctologist in time, if such a problem is outlined so that the disease does not go into the chronic stage, because then it is much more difficult to treat, especially during pregnancy.
Also among the factorsaffecting the occurrence of hemorrhoids during pregnancy - sedentary lifestyle, improper and irregular nutrition, frequent constipation, taking oral contraceptives and alcohol abuse. Exercising in some sports can also cause hemorrhoids, such as auto, moto and cycling, rowing, equestrian sport and weightlifting. Also, pregnant moms should not carry heavy bags, so as not to provoke hemorrhoids.
