Human evolution from ape to man has experienced the process from crawling to walking upright.
It has to be said that this change is an important embodiment of human progress.
However, it is precisely because of upright walking that the pressure on the anus increases.
Especially when women are pregnant, the anus is more damaged.
So, how much harm does a pregnancy do to the anus?
Hemorrhoids are easy to occur during pregnancy or aggravate the original hemorrhoids
Due to the increase of uterus and abdominal pressure in the third trimester of pregnancy, the hemorrhoid venous reflux is blocked and the pressure is increased, resulting in hemorrhoid varicose veins.
This makes pregnant mothers without hemorrhoids before pregnancy prone to hemorrhoids in the third trimester; It also makes pregnant mothers who have hemorrhoids before pregnancy, and the symptoms of hemorrhoids in the third trimester of pregnancy will be significantly aggravated.
About 30% - 40% of pregnant mothers will feel the discomfort caused by hemorrhoids, which can be shown as follows:
1. Painless bleeding: bleeding is generally related to defecation. The blood is usually bright red. At the end of defecation, the blood covers the surface of the stool or may drop in the toilet like water drops. Occasionally, the amount of bleeding will be large, and it will be aggravated when exerting force. In addition, sometimes bleeding may be spontaneous.
2. Perianal skin itching.
3. Thrombosis: during thrombosis, pregnant mothers may have acute perianal pain and "lumps" that can be touched by hand.
Whether it is "bleeding", "itching" or "pain", the anus has to bear it silently.
Constipation is more likely after pregnancy
The feeling of constipation should be understood by everyone:
Hold it for several days to row once, feel laborious when defecating, hard to discharge, always feel that it is not discharged clean, and sometimes even need the help of "external force", etc.
These uncomfortable feelings are "putting pressure" on the "anus" again and again.
Especially during pregnancy, the intestinal peristalsis and intestinal tension of pregnant mothers will be weakened, coupled with the reduction of exercise during pregnancy, it is more prone to constipation.
The anus has become the most direct "victim".
