Constipation is a common symptom in women after birth. After giving birth, women lose blood, abstain from abstinence, often lying in one place, sedentary so the intestinal motility becomes weaker. Stool retention in the intestine is long after reabsorption of water so it dries and hardens, increasing the risk of constipation.
Even some labor pain relievers can slow the intestinal activity, leading to constipation. If there is no early resolution, but for prolonged constipation, the patient is at risk of being affected by the digestive and genital organs such as hemorrhoids, prolapses, rectal prolapse, blood defecation …
Treating constipation from the very beginning is very simple: just increase fiber supplement, drink plenty of water, move gently … Specifically, make the right diet (eat enough groups of powder and sugar , protein, fat, vegetables and fruits), should not only eat dried foods such as fish, silk rolls, pepper meat … but must eat soup and vegetables.
Drink plenty of water or low-fat, sugar-free, high-fiber milk.
Exercise or tighten the abdomen because after the uterus is small, the abdomen is loose, the pressure on the bowel straps reduces constipation.
Tightening the abdomen and exercising so that the muscles of the abdomen tighten quickly will make the abdominal pressure return to normal to help reduce constipation.
You should eat sour foods such as yogurt, fruit juice with natural sour taste like grapefruit juice, orange juice … or sour soup is also very useful in preventing constipation. Practice bowel movements regularly every day at a fixed hour (morning).
