Constipation during pregnancy is incredibly common. And with constipation, another problem frequently
These are not pleasant things to talk about, and they may seem relatively minor compared to everything else that’s happening during pregnancy.
However, constipation and hemorrhoids during pregnancy are real problems.
What can make these problems even worse is the iron some women take as part of the prenatal vitamin regimen.
Normally, these are very easy conditions to treat. Constipation can be treated with dietary fiber, laxatives, and stool softeners. Hemorrhoids can be treated with various creams and wipes applied directly to the affected areas.
But as a pregnant women, you are understandably cautious about which medicines and supplements to use.
We also need to consider that constipation can lead to hemorrhoids, as the harder stools can cause the pain and inflammation to sensitive tissues in the lower bowels, resulting in hemorrhoids.
Another consideration is the presence of internal hemorrhoids versus external hemorrhoids.
You see, you may be experiencing both internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids. External hemorrhoids are basically those you can feel with your finger. Applying a hemorrhoid cream can work against those hemorrhoids. But the internal ones are unreachable.
So while external creams and wipes can be safely used on external hemorrhoids, they can’t be used for the internal hemorrhoids because they are literally out of reach.
So what is the answer?
Is fiber enough?
Just about every obstetrician will tell you that increasing dietary fiber is the best way to improve the constipation.
Plus, having better bowel movements may result in the hemorrhoids becoming less irritated, allowing them time to heal.
This makes a great deal of sense. In fact, simply increasing the daily consumption of fruits, vegetables, and high fiber cereals is a great first step towards reducing the problems associated with constipation during pregnancy.
However, as beneficial as increased dietary fiber is, it’s rarely enough, especially against hemorrhoids.
A better way to deal with constipation and hemorrhoids during pregnancy
We have a product idea that can help deal with BOTH problems of constipation and hemorrhoids…and it comes in a simple oral pill that you take once or twice a day. It’s called Tush MD, and it can change the way you deal with constipation and hemorrhoids.
Tush MD is completely all natural, and contains the following:
Fiber – The most common remedy for constipation during pregnancy, fiber can also help with hemorrhoids by creating a looser bowel movement.
However, fiber in and of itself will not decrease the pain nor the inflammation associated with hemorrhoids. You need more, so Tush MD also contains…
Bromelain – Bromelain is extracted from the fruit and core of the pineapple. It is already used in the food industry.
However, when taken by mouth, bromelain acts to digest food in the intestines, so bowel movements are much easier.
More importantly, bromelain has a mild anti-inflammatory effect. So it can reduce the inflammation associated with hemorrhoids. This is why bromelain is a great for both hemorrhoids and constipation. But, Tush MD doesn’t stop there!
Witch Hazel Leaf – Witch Hazel is a common astringent found in many hemorrhoidal preparations, like creams and wipes. It’s a great astringent, which also has a nice cooling effect when applied directly to the hemorrhoid.
Importantly, the Witch Hazel Leaf delivers the cooling effect throughout the lower intestines, so the internal hemorrhoids receive the witch hazel, which means more comfort for you!
However, the leaf form in a pill is a stroke of genius because the leaf largely passes through the intestines undigested (like lettuce or cabbage can pass undigested through the intestines).
So now imagine applying cooling, soothing with hazel to the internal hemorrhoids and the external hemorrhoids from the inside instead of the outside. That’s exactly what you’re doing by taking witch hazel leaf orally!
This is why taking a pill like Tush MD to deal with both the constipation and hemorrhoids during pregnancy is so important.
So if you’re suffering from constipation during pregnancy, and you’re also experiencing hemorrhoids during pregnancy, then taking an oral supplement like Tush MD for both problems is an ideal approach, especially for those internal hemorrhoids.
The combination enables you to battle both internal hemorrhoids and external hemorrhoids simultaneously, resulting in safer, more pleasant bowel movements during your pregnancy.
