Pregnancy and childbirth cause a great number of changes in the body because of the ever changing balance of hormones. One of the numerous complications that are experienced by pregnant women is that of piles. Sometimes, the condition is so advanced, that they tend to experience a certain amount of bleeding when passing stools. In order to reduce the occurrence of such a condition, there are certain measures that you could take:

  • Pregnant women must ensure that they eat healthy foods that are easy to digest.
  • Resorting to the consumption of a high fiber diet will help to clean out the system, as well as provide the right kind of roughage for the smooth functioning of the digestive system.
  • When you are pregnant there is a tendency to drink less water and this could also lead to the occurrence of piles. It is extremely important that the body be kept well hydrated throughout the day so that the system may remain clean and free from toxins that lead to the occurrence of piles and other such complications.
  • If you have experienced bleeding while trying to pass a motion, it is extremely important that you clean thoroughly to avoid any infection that may result from the lesion that has formed.
  • Allowing your body to soak in a warm bath with Epsom salts will help to provide immediate relief from what could be a rather painful and discomforting situation.
  • If you experience any swelling in the rectal area, try using an ice pack to reduce the swelling. Ice has been recommended for its effectiveness in reducing swelling and should be administered if there is any evident swelling.
  • In order to reduce the occurrence of abrasions in the affected area, while cleaning your self after having passed a motion, it is recommended that moist tissue paper be used.
