Acupuncture Treatment for Constipation in Pregnancy

There are many conditions which can occur during pregnancy. With increased progesterone which softens bowel tissue and the weight of the foetus pressing on the intestines constipation is a common, uncomfortable and distressing condition. It is the sluggish movement of the bowels that can often lead to haemorrhoids at this time.

Due to there flushing action, it is not recommended to use laxatives during pregnancy and so acupuncture can provide a subtle, safe and effective method of regulating the digestive system.

In combination with possible changes in diet and exercises, it is possible to maintain a healthy bowel movement throughout the pregnancy. Acupuncture is used predominantly but herbal medicine can be effectively added in stubborn cases.
