Haven’t Defecated For A Week While 2 Months Pregnant?
Hello .. I want to ask ..
Hello Doni, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Constipation or constipation in pregnant women is a fairly common condition. The hormones produced by pregnant women are one of the factors that influence the occurrence of this constipation. Here are some things your wife can try to do:
Try eating more fiber like vegetables and fruits, and consumption of more complex and more fibrous carbohydrates such as brown rice, brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat bread, quinoa, etc. Do not consume excessive meat, and reduce fatty foods, and sugar Drink in sufficient quantities every day (drink at least 2-3 liters a day) Avoid alcohol consumption and reduce caffeine consumption Increase physical activity and try to do light exercise regularly (for example walking on morning, swim) When defecating, try to defecate in a squatting position (do not squat in the toilet seat), if indeed you only have a toilet sitting at home, give a rebuttal so that the foot is slightly raised when defecating Do not hold back the desire BAB Try to go to Routine toilet, for example when you wake up in the morning or after eating. If indeed your wife has not been able to defecate smoothly after trying the things above, consult her obstetrician again so that further treatment can be given. Do not consume certain drugs without consulting an obstetrician first.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
