Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello,Welcome and thank you for your question.
Is she constipated?
Does she get cramps or abdominal pains or feels like going to the loo when she eats or drinks anything?
The pain is due to trapped gas in the intestines. It is common for indigestion to occur in early pregnancy and for excessive gas formation in the intestines.
Please ask her to take a medicine called GasX which will help absorb the gas in the stomach and intestines - it s safe in pregnancy.
She also needs to drink at least 7-8 glasses of fluids and walk daily to relieve her constipation.
Please talk to her doctor about a laxative she can use. Lactulose is safe to use in pregnancy.
