Swollen Feet During Pregnancy At The Age Of 17 Weeks?
Good afternoon, I want to ask that my ankle has swollen for 6 days even though I was only 17 weeks old because of what? Danger is also not approximately for my womb? Thank you.
Swollen feet during pregnancy, especially young pregnant need to be considered especially if you do not have a similar history before. Swelling of the feet at a young gestational age can be caused by several factors such as prolonged standing, long walks, hormonal changes, where in early pregnancy or in the first trimester if symptoms are accompanied by other complaints such as pain in the legs, headaches, dizziness, swelling in the area other body, or bleeding then the cause needs to be ascertained because it can be triggered by health problems.
To overcome this can be done several ways such as reducing strenuous activity, especially a lot of standing or walking long distances, limit salt intake, use comfortable footwear, support the feet with a pillow or other objects so that the position is higher than the body so that blood flow back more smoothly to help reduce swelling . Maintain food intake and fluid requirements so that the pregnancy remains smooth. Check with your doctor immediately if the complaint does not subside within a few days.
