Constipation

Treating constipation with acupuncture can have surprisingly immediate results.

Constipation can begin in early pregnancy from the rise in natural progesterone or if a person is supplementing progesterone during fertility treatment. Progesterone slows down the muscle contractions that normally move the stool through the intestines.

Constipation can get worse if nausea leads to a decrease in fluid and dietary fiber intake. As much as possible try to drink lots of water and eat fruits, veggies and whole grains.
