Progesterone - norm and pathology
, Whose main task - not to terminate a pregnancy. To do this, progesterone inhibits motor activity of muscles of the uterus.
And since all the smooth muscles of the abdomen and pelvis is a common innervation suppressed motor activity of the gastrointestinal tract, biliary tract, urinary tract, which creates problems during pregnancy, such as constipation, pyelonephritis, and so on. Constipation can be quite quickly lead to hemorrhoids. As far as he is pronounced depends on the individual woman, that is the initial state of the venous system, it inherited from the parents.
In the second half of pregnancy the active role of progesterone decreases slightly, but growing uterus compresses the internal organs and blood vessels of the small pelvis, causing congestion in the veins of the rectum. This reinforces the effects of hemorrhoids.
