Pregnancy is an important thing for the continuation and survival of life and it is a very nice feeling, but the most important effects and unwanted diseases that a pregnant mother is exposed to during her pregnancy must be known, and the most important of these symptoms and diseases are heartburn and stomach acidity for the pregnant woman.
When does a heartburn start for a pregnant woman?
Pregnancy heartburn is one of the most common pregnancy problems. Pregnant heartburn usually occurs in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, and although it does not indicate a serious illness, heartburn may be the cause of pain and discomfort for pregnant women. Indigestion is commonly known as indigestion or an upset stomach.
The danger of heartburn for pregnant women
If you experience frequent and abnormal heartburn and heartburn, this may indicate the presence of a more serious condition known as gastroesophageal reflux disease. Gastroesophageal reflux can lead to severe heartburn and other serious diseases such as esophageal ulcers.
Sometimes, heartburn is a symptom of heart ischemia. Therefore, a person must undergo a series of tests and analyzes such as endoscopy, x-rays, esophageal motility test, and manometry.
reasons of heartburn during pregnancy
The cause of heartburn in pregnant women is that there are some foods that can cause heartburn when consumed in large and inappropriate quantities. These foods include chocolate, alcoholic beverages, highly caffeinated beverages, spicy foods, garlic, onions, and fatty foods. Peppermint, tea, coffee and alcohol also lead to heartburn and heartburn. Lying down right after eating can lead to heartburn and heartburn. Lying on the back allows the acid to flow through the esophagus, causing a painful stinging and burning sensation.
Also, eating a large meal and eating too fast leads to heartburn. There are also certain foods and practices that irritate the lining of the esophagus and thus may lead to heartburn. These foods include citrus fruits, smoke, ibuprofen, aspirin, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and osteoporosis medications. Other foods that cause heartburn include black pepper, mayonnaise, creamy sauce, butter, margarine, salad dressings, and whole dairy products.
People with certain serious conditions are more likely to have heartburn. These conditions include scleroderma, CREST syndrome, hiatal hernia, gastroparesis, diabetes and autoimmune diseases
Normally, food passes through the mouth and travels to the stomach. While a person is not eating, the valve in the lower part of the esophagus closes, creating a barrier between the stomach and esophagus. This barrier works to prevent acid from building up. But when a person eats, this valve opens, allowing liquid and food to pass through. Therefore, if the valve opens when a person is not eating, this allows the acid to pass up through the esophagus, causing a burning sensation in a pregnant woman.
