Frequent Diarrhea While 7 Months Pregnant?
hello doctor, I’m 30w pregnant .. but from the beginning I entered TM 3 so I often defecated and (sorry) diarrhea like diarrhea but no other complaints such as fever, flu or other. even though I routinely take vitamins from the doctor and eat food from home and those who usually eat food A (for example) hr monday, but when several days of cooking the same can get diarrhea .. what are the causes?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Diarrhea is a condition when a person experiences watery bowel movements, three or more times a day. For pregnant women, the third trimester is the most common period of diarrhea, although not all pregnant women feel it.
In general, it is true that what you have said is that diarrhea can be caused by poor hygiene by consuming food from outside, but in pregnant women, outside of that common cause, diarrhea can also occur because:
Hormonal changes Changes in diet Eating pregnancy vitamins The digestive tract is more sensitive and sensitive to food
What is clear, because now you are pregnant, you should not take any drug even though it is sold freely. Therefore, you still have to check yourself to the obstetrician to get diarrhea medication that is safe for your consumption. Because it is not impossible, the diarrhea that you experience is caused by bacteria that cannot be cured without the consumption of antibiotics.
Meanwhile, make sure you consume enough fluids, whether in the form of juice, water, tea or milk to replace fluids lost in the form of diarrhea. Get enough rest, avoid stress, smoke cigarettes, and keep your body clean overall. So, hopefully answering your question.
