You would think that in recent years have increased vaginal discharge? So, do not you think. This is known as Beli
Beli: abnormal discharge
- Excessive or unusual in nature from the genital organs of women that cause itching, burning and a constant feeling of moisture in the crotch area. Discharge not abundant, mucous, not irritate the skin of the external genitalia. The number of discharges increased in sensitive phase of the menstrual cycle and during pregnancy. Did you notice traces of discharge on the laundry before, before pregnancy, but now there are many more. This is due to enhanced production of estrogen and blood flow to the vagina.
Flatulence and bloating
Do not be surprised if you suddenly in the midst of a conversation or a meal you srygnete as a hero of some stupid teen comedy. Also, do not be surprised if you have to unbutton his pants due to the swollen belly, or you start to break wind, blaming your dog.
Why is this happening? During pregnancy a woman's body increases the production of progesterone
Progesterone - norm and pathology
- The hormone responsible for relaxation of smooth muscle tissue, which also forms and organs of the digestive tract.
As a result of the relaxation of tissues slows down the digestive process, which leads to accumulation of gas (flatulence), bloating, belching, and other such "charms." Therefore, after a meal, especially a hearty meal, the stomach begins a revolution.
Swollen, inflamed gums, bleeding when brushing or flossing, brushing, - one of the unpleasant "side effects" of pregnancy
. Bleeding gums and sensitivity are also explained by the increased level of progesterone in the body of a pregnant woman - the gums become more sensitive to the bacteria in plaque, in no small part due to increased blood flow to mouth
. This is known as pregnancy gingivitis is observed in about half of pregnant women
. Treatment of gingivitis pregnant is a set of procedures aimed at addressing both the impact of disease and its cause
. But regardless of the specific reason that caused the pregnancy gingivitis, treatment begins necessarily with a professional teeth cleaning, eliminating dental deposits (plaque and stone)
. Later necessarily anti-inflammatory therapy is conducted with the help of special drugs and normalizing vascular tissue permeability
If it's any consolation, you should know that constipation affects about one-third of pregnant women, so that you are not alone. One of the possible culprits of constipation - raising the level of the same hormone progesterone slows down the process of digestion, and thus the movement of food through the digestive tract. In late pregnancy, this problem is exacerbated by the pressure of the growing uterus on the rectum.
Some women think that during pregnancy they have enhanced salivation, especially when they feel sick. In rare cases, saliva so much that it has to spit, as it literally fills the mouth (the amount lost by the saliva can reach a liter a day, not counting swallowed). Excessive salivation is due to overexcitement branches of the vagus nerve in the parotid salivary glands. Drooling may begin with the first weeks of pregnancy and does not take place during the entire pregnancy.
Hemorrhoids in pregnant women is caused by varicose hemorrhoidal veins located inside the rectum around the anus. Hemorrhoids - is, in fact, a special case of a general change of varicose veins, he, like varicose veins, strongly influenced by heredity - usually the disease runs in families, and even repeated pregnancy, and long locks do not cause disease if the venous wall strong. On the other hand, the stagnation of blood in the pelvis, which is always celebrated during pregnancy serves as a predisposing factor to the first manifestations of hemorrhoids and constipation that often accompany pregnancy, women are often forced to make an effort that promotes loss varikoznoizmenennyh nodes. Furthermore congestion in the pelvis and constipation, hemorrhoids leads to the appearance of increased thrombosis in pregnant women and weight gain.
Rash and itching of the skin
Pregnant women are often itchy and rashes on the skin, especially on the abdomen and chest where the skin is stretched the most.

Swelling of the legs (edema)
Swelling of the extremities - are normal during pregnancy, because at this time of a woman's body retains more water. Hormonal changes also cause the penetration of fluid into the tissue. But the swelling can also be a sign of serious complications, so be alert.
Even in the normal microflora of the vagina
