Why is it easy to get hemorrhoids during pregnancy? Zhang Shuhong, a physician at Changsha Dongda anorectal Hospital, explained that pregnant women are prone to hemorrhoids for the following reasons:
1、 With the continuous growth of the fetus, the stomach also becomes larger and larger, which will put more and more pressure on the inferior vena cava. The increased pressure hinders the blood circulation of the inferior vena cava, especially for the venous plexus around the anus. The deposition of blood makes hemorrhoids easy to form.
2、 Pregnant women are more likely to be troubled by constipation. During pregnancy, for the sake of fetal nutrition, pregnant women generally consume more protein and nut foods, which increases the digestive burden of intestines and stomach. Dyspepsia is easy to cause constipation, and long-term constipation is easy to cause hemorrhoids.
3、 Pregnant women generally lack exercise, the amount of exercise is reduced, and the peristalsis of intestines and stomach will slow down, making the pressure of intestines greater and hemorrhoids easier to produce.
So, what should pregnant women do after getting hemorrhoids?
Zhang Shuhong introduced that for the health of the fetus, it is generally recommended to take less drugs if you get hemorrhoids during pregnancy. You can use light saline sitz bath to alleviate the discomfort caused by hemorrhoids. It is recommended to use warm boiled water. After cleaning, you can also keep the skin around the anus clean and hygienic. If the condition is serious, we should reasonably cooperate with drug treatment under the guidance of doctors. In terms of diet, we should eat more food rich in fiber and eat more fresh vegetables and fruits. Drinking plenty of water can soften the stool and facilitate discharge. Try to avoid squatting for a long time when going to the toilet to prevent internal hemorrhoids from prolapse. If prolapse occurs, it should be reset manually in time to avoid deterioration of the condition.
Pregnancy is not easy. Getting hemorrhoids will be more painful. Changsha Dongda anorectal Hospital reminds you that you must pay attention to diet and proper exercise after pregnancy to avoid hemorrhoids as much as possible. If you unfortunately get hemorrhoids, you must not use drugs casually. Follow the doctor's advice and use drugs reasonably under the guidance of the doctor.
