Pregnant 7w Take Hemorrhoid Medication?
Hello, I’m 7w pregnant, having a hard time with chapter 6 this day, not at all. I also have hemorrhoid. Then, I have bought constipation medicine that is used through the anus, but it still cannot come out. Finally I took hemorrhoids medicine. And just realized if I’m pregnant, are there any side effects of my hemorrhoid medication in the womb? And how to overcome it, how?

In general, during pregnancy, there will be some changes in the body's hormones, which when there is an increase in hormones, especially the hormone estrogen and progesterone eating will cause changes or disorders in some parts of the body. For example, there will be a slowdown in gastric emptying and slowed bowel movements, resulting in slowed bowel movements. If the bowel movement slows down it will cause constipation or difficult bowel movements. When you experience this situation you should improve the condition of your body, by eating lots of fiber, fruits, vegetables and multiply the consumption of water.
