Causes Stomach Cramps During Young Pregnancy?
Hello, I am 2 months pregnant, but why does my stomach often cramp like a period?
Thank you for your question.
During pregnancy there is an increase in several hormones in the body. An increase in these hormones can cause some changes in the function of the body in the mother. During pregnancy there is an increase in the hormone estrogen, which is where the hormone estrogen influences the work of the digestive system.
Hormone estrogen causes the movement and emptying of the stomach and intestine to slow down, so that due to the slowing of the intestine and stomach, the intestine which is normally moved normally becomes obstructed and the food in the intestine moves smoothly, causing cramps in the intestine.
In addition to hormones, intestinal cramps can also be caused due to a lack of fluids which in liquid fluids in the mother will be divided into two with the fetus so that water intake to the intestine of the mother becomes reduced. Lack of liquid intake in the intestine can also cause slowed bowel movements.
There are several things that can be done to reduce your complaint, including:
multiply the consumption of water at least 2 liters per day eat foods high in fiber, eat in small portions but often do pregnancy exercises If by doing this there is no change then immediately consult your obstetrician, to get a more appropriate treatment.
