How to relieve constipation in pregnancy | Mum's Grapevinene

Bringing a child into this world is a miraculous thing. The fact that your body can grow a whole other human is pretty amazing. But while your body is doing all of that life-creating greatness, it can sometimes throw you a curveball – one that’s a downright pain in the butt. Yep, we’re talking about haemorrhoids.

Symptomatic relief of haemorrhoids

Haemorrhoids are not only an unwanted surprise in your pants, they can also leave your downstairs feeling sore and itchy. While sometimes surgical options may be required to treat or remove more serious or recurring cases, after talking with our doctor, you may find that you can manage haemorrhoids with products that help with symptomatic relief. If you have haemorrhoids and are looking for an option to help relieve symptoms, discuss SOOV It with your doctor to see if it is suitable for you.

How SOOV It Haemorrhoid Ointment can help

SOOV It Haemorrhoid Ointment does double duty as both an anti-inflammatory and anaesthetic ointment. It contains a combination of ingredients that helps relieve the symptoms of haemorrhoids and help to the sting out of your tail.

Inflammation: Hydrocortisone helps reduce inflammation, so you can sit comfortably.

Pain & itch: Lidocaine (lignocaine) helps relieve pain and itch, to help reduce that embarrassing scratching.

Chafing: The emollient base helps keep the skin soft to minimise chafing, so you can walk with ease.

Just apply it to the affected area up to three times a day. Yeah, we know, ointment on your butt. But don’t worry, after bub arrives, you’ll spend so much time looking after another person’s tush, you’ll be glad you spent a little time looking after your own.

Haemorrhoids in pregnancy

If you’re suffering from haemorrhoids while you’re pregnant, remember, you’re not alone – many pregnant women will experience haemorrhoids at some point throughout their pregnancy. Of course, they can happen at any time, but they’re especially frequent while pregnant.

What even are haemorrhoids?

You might also know them as piles. But essentially, haemorrhoids are swollen and enlarged veins around the anus area. Think of them as varicose veins for your rear end. You might not notice them, but they can also be uncomfortable and even painful. So, if things aren’t feeling quite right down there, especially when you’re doing a number 2’s, it might be worth checking because you could have haemorrhoids.

How to avoid haemorrhoids

If you don’t have haemorrhoids and you’re keen to avoid them, there are a few things you can do to minimise the risk of getting them.

  • Help prevent constipation by maintaining a high fibre diet
  • Increase your water intake
  • Maintain regular moderate exercise
  • Avoid ‘hanging on’ and empty your bowels when you feel the need

And remember, always read the label and follow the directions for use. If you are pregnant, intend to become pregnant or you are breastfeeding or intend to breastfeed, please consult your doctor before using SOOV It. Your doctor will discuss the risks and benefits of using SOOV It when pregnant or breastfeeding.
