11. Gastrointestinal Complications in Pregnancy
Nausea and vomiting, hyperemesis gravidarum, gastroesophageal reflux disease, gallstones, diarrhea, and constipation are some of the most common gastrointestinal disorders women face during pregnancy. Long-term diarrhea can induce dehydration, which can lead to major complications such as premature delivery. Constipation can also damage your pelvic muscles, tissues, and nerves. This can cause the uterus to fall out of position in severe circumstances. Women with IBS are also more likely to miscarry.
