How often do you have bowel movements?
Did you know?
If you’re having trouble emptying your bowels on a regular basis, eat a lot of fiber (fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds) to avoid constipation. Prolonged constipation can cause hemorrhoids. During pregnancy, the extra progesterone (steroid hormone) in your system slows down your bowel movement so as to serve as much nutrient as possible to your little Your Child.
