Pregnancy brings a woman not only joy, often this process is accompanied by digestive problems, and one of them is constipation. To get rid of constipation, doctors often prescribe herbal preparations to pregnant women, and one of them is Senada. This is a laxative that stimulates the work of the colon. Eight to ten hours after taking Senada, a normal bowel movement occurs.
Constipation and their danger
In the early days, the cause of constipation is the intake of calcium and iron preparations, increased levels of progesterone,which relaxes the smooth muscles of the intestine. As a consequence, hypotension develops, peristalsis and the process of regular emptying are disrupted. If the threat of miscarriage is diagnosed, constipation results from a reduction in motor activity and bed rest.
Closer to the end of pregnancy, the cause of constipation is the restriction of the amount of fluid used, a reduction in physical activity. In addition, the intestine is squeezed by a growing uterus, which disrupts its function.
Constipation causes not only the discomfort of the mother, they have an effect on the process of bearing a child. The large intestine absorbs everything that is in the body, so that toxic substances enter the bloodstream. Therefore, constipation is always accompanied by poisoning of both the mother and the child, which can affect its development.
The gut, in which dense stools accumulate, presses on the uterus, causing its irritation. The consequence of this may be increased tone and the threat of premature birth. With constipation, the intestine presses against the uterus and other organs, disrupting the outflow of blood from them. All this contributes to the development of hemorrhoids.
The Senadé laxative works by the extract of Senna leaves. They contain special substances that irritate the nerve endings of the intestine, improve its peristalsis and ensure the advancement of stool to the exit. Senada has no effect on the digestive tract. In addition, it is not addictive.to table of contents ^
