Candles Relief in Pregnancy

The course of pregnancy is exacerbated by various health complications that develop as a result of a radical restructuring of the mother's body. One of the most unpleasant problems is hemorrhoids. As a result of the growth of the size of the uterus, which presses on the surrounding pelvic organs, a decrease in the elasticity of the walls of the vessels, an increase in the amount of blood in the body, and the slowing of its movement, inflammation may develop with pain and bleeding in some areas. For the treatment of hemorrhoids in pregnant women, doctors often prescribe the Relief Candles, which provide wound healing and painless defecation.
