1... Why am I so constipated while I'm pregnant?
Constipation is a common problem during pregnancy: Up to half of pregnant women get constipated at some point.
One reason for constipation during pregnancy is an increase in the hormone progesterone, which relaxes smooth muscles throughout the body, including the digestive tract. This means that food passes through the intestines more slowly.
And the problem may be compounded later in pregnancy by the pressure of your growing uterus on your rectum. Iron supplements, especially in high doses, can make constipation worse.
2... Constipation during pregnancy
Pregnancy is usually a wonderful (and worrisome!) time for most women.
There is nothing that can describe the feeling of having another being rapidly growing inside you, while moving and communicating with you too.
To most women, this is worth the petty annoyances and health issues that can arise, such as constipation.
Many women suffer from constipation during pregnancy, with one study finding that it effects around a quarter of all pregnant women. It can be embarrassing to talk about, therefore some women suffer in silence until it becomes a really difficult issue.
