Constipation during pregnancy is a very common problem. If you are pregnant and experiencing constipation, then know that you are not alone and that most pregnant women at some time or anther experience constipation. You can add constipation to the list of pregnancy symptoms that are uncomfortable but will not do harm to your baby.
One of the main reasons that a pregnant woman suffers from constipation is the hormone progesterone, which is produced when pregnant, slows down the digestion of food. This basically causes a build up and blockage of waste which in return leads to constipation, or not being able to have a bowel movement.
Another cause for constipation in later months of pregnancy is the pressure from the uterus sitting on the rectum. This pressure can make it harder to have bowel movements and makes them irregular.
The last cause of pregnancy constipation could be what you are putting in your mouth every morning. Prenatal vitamins usually have a high amount of iron in them which can cause constipation. Some women even end up having to take extra iron supplements besides just a prenatal vitamin, which can really in turn cause bad digestive tract problems.
If you ever have severe constipation along with abdominal pain and rectal bleeding, you will want to call your doctor as soon as possible for an appointment. Constipation during pregnancy is almost never very serious, but there may be a problem if you are experiencing those symptoms as well.
Most of the time constipation problems go away shortly after giving birth. Once your hormones have started returning to normal and you may not be taking your extra iron anymore, you can probably expect the problem of constipation to go away. This is one of the pregnancy symptoms that you can look forward to getting rid of shortly after giving birth.
