Gastrointestinal tract of the future mother and Bifidumbacterin
Pregnancy is a burden on the body, which lowers immunity, inhibits the activity of the muscles of the uterus, as well as the musculature of the gastrointestinal tract. Reduction of such activity is a protective physiological process, because the body prevents the possible termination of pregnancy. At the same time it causes disruption of intestinal motility and, as a consequence, constipation, bloating. Decrease in immunity promotes reproduction of pathogenic microflora, the greatest quantity of which is in the intestine. To such a microflora is also the Candida yeast-like fungus. Recall that he provokes thrush in expectant mothers. Naturally, such infections are not needed by a pregnant woman, since they develop complications in her body, and hence in the fetus. Therefore, such a microflora of the intestine must be neutralized. For this purpose, the use of Bifidumbacterin, which is absolutely safe for a future mother, is recommended.
Bifidumbacterin improves the digestion of food in the body of a pregnant woman, promotes its movement through the intestines. This reduces the phenomenon of bloating and intestinal colic. Normal movement of food along the intestines reduces constipation, and therefore, the prerequisites for the appearance of hemorrhoids during pregnancy. The drug also reduces the chances of infection of the skin of the anus and infection in the genito-urinary organs. The causative agents of such infections are often representatives of the pathogenic microflora of the intestine. Since the genitals are close to the anus, the infection can spread to them and cause inflammation. Sanitation of the intestine with Bifidumbacterin reduces this risk.
Topical application Bifidumbacterin
One of the forms of the preparation is candles. They can be injected into the vagina and into the rectum. The first method, as a rule, use after treatment of inflammation with antibacterial drugs to restore normal microflora and acidity of the vagina. After treatment with candles, the vagina again acquires the ability to self-purification - and the pathogenic microflora in the organ does not settle down.
It is also possible to prescribe Bifidumbacterin in candles before childbirth or other manipulations in the genital tract to prevent the development of septic complications.
And although the preparation Bifidumbacterin is safe and harmless for the body of a pregnant woman, it is not necessary to engage in self-medication with it. Individual dosages and regimens can be correctly and correctly prescribed only by your doctor, taking into account the course of pregnancy and the characteristics of your body.
