Gastrointestinal disorders in Pregnancy

Most pregnant women experience gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, heartburn or constipation. Motility disturbances, caused by altered hormone levels, probably explain most of these symptoms, but several other factors can contribute. While new-onset gastrointestinal symptoms are usually mild to moderate and respond to simple therapeutic measures such as lifestyle and dietary changes, some women suffer severe symptoms and need medical therapy. Moreover, chronic gastrointestinal diseases that affect young women, such as IBD or chronic liver disease, can deteriorate and/or need altered diagnostic and therapeutic approaches during pregnancy.
