During pregnancy, women are most concerned about a variety of disorders of the digestive organs. This is constipation, heartburn, nausea, vomiting and so on. Is it possible to reduce these symptoms using drugs, which include pancreatin?
The work of the digestive system during pregnancy
During pregnancy, it changes the operation of all organs and systems of a woman's body. Digestive are no exception. From the very beginning of pregnancy in a woman's body begins to produce large amounts of the female hormone progesterone. The main objective of this hormone during pregnancy is a suppression of uterine smooth muscle contractions: contractions of the uterus can lead to premature termination of pregnancy, that is a miscarriage
Miscarriage - can you protect yourself from it?
But the fact that the smooth muscles of the abdominal cavity has a single nerve and its suppression of spasms in one body some impossible. Thus, progesterone

not only causes relaxation of smooth muscle of the uterus, and smooth muscle of the gastrointestinal tract.
As a result, significantly inhibited intestinal peristaltic movements which contribute to the promotion of normal food, which leads to chronic constipation characteristic pregnancy. A chronic constipation - a prolonged exposure of stool in the intestine, reabsorption into the blood of toxic substances, a violation of the general condition of the woman in the form of nausea and vomiting, and a negative impact on all the organs of digestion.
In addition, during pregnancy, women are often tormented by heartburn. But in this case it is not a consequence of heartburn power of gastric juice and raise its pH (gastric secretion in some cases may even decrease), as consequence of the relaxation of smooth muscles of the stomach, including the sphincter at the junction of the esophagus to the stomach. Because of this wicking occurs acidic gastric contents of the stomach into the esophagus - woman feels this as heartburn. With increasing duration of pregnancy heartburn increases as the growing uterus and helps the stomach backs thrown at its contents into the esophagus.
Do I need during pregnancy Pancreatinum
Pancreatin - a drug, which comprises enzymes, digesting the proteins, fats and carbohydrates entering the body with food.
Assign pancreatin with a decrease in the secretory function of the digestive system, including the reduction of gastric secretion. It also stimulates its own secretion of the gastrointestinal tract.
The main symptoms in the digestive system, which disturb women is heartburn, nausea and constipation

there is a side effect). Since constipation is reduced, it comes off and nausea, which is often a consequence of intoxication against constipation.
So to relieve unpleasant symptoms of the gastrointestinal tract that accompany pregnancy, pancreatin not do. In addition, manufacturers honestly warn that the clinical trials of the drug in pregnant women have not been conducted, and no one knows exactly, as in this case acts pancreatin. The one thing the producers believe is that pancreatin is not teratogenic, that is not cause malformations in the fetus.
In some cases, pregnant women are prescribed pancreatin
Pancreatin pregnant women appoint a doctor if she has to receive indications of the drug. After pregnancy does not exclude the presence of a woman or chronic pancreatitis, chronic gastritis with reduced gastric acid secretion.
In the presence of these diseases pregnant women prescribed drugs, which include pancreatin.
