How to avoid uterine hypertonicity during pregnancy

When a woman is in an inter­est­ing posi­tion, she is often intim­i­dat­ed by var­i­ous “hor­ror sto­ries” relat­ed to preg­nan­cy and child­birth. One of the most com­mon fears of preg­nant women is uter­ine hyper­tonic­i­ty.

About why there is an increased tone of the uterus and how to avoid it, the obste­tri­cian-gyne­col­o­gist of the high­est cat­e­go­ry, Lyud­mi­la Shu­penyuk, spoke on the air of the TV mag­a­zine “Every­thing will be kind.”

The uterus is a mus­cle tis­sue that often and strong­ly con­tracts with hyper­tonic­i­ty. This behav­ior is typ­i­cal in con­trac­tions before child­birth. And com­plete­ly abnor­mal long before them. Hyper­tonic­i­ty is often referred to as one of the symp­toms of a mis­car­riage. But there are some tips on how to avoid the devel­op­ment of increased uter­ine tone.

Tips for avoiding uterine hypertonicity

Coun­cil 1. Reg­u­lar­ly take seda­tives and drugs that relieve mus­cle ten­sion. The ner­vous sys­tem should be at rest, as well as the mus­cles.

Coun­cil 2. Be sure to take mag­ne­sium sup­ple­ments. Or eat foods rich in mag­ne­sium. If they do not have a neg­a­tive reac­tion of the preg­nant woman. Mag­ne­sium per­fect­ly relax­es the mus­cles of the uterus, intestines and oth­er inter­nal organs, and also helps to reduce the excitabil­i­ty of the ner­vous sys­tem. The largest amount of mag­ne­sium is in legumes, bran bread, green veg­eta­bles, buck­wheat and oat­meal.

Coun­cil 3. Be sure to be out­doors as often as pos­si­ble. Oxy­gen sat­u­rates the body and per­fect­ly copes with the increased tone of mus­cle tis­sue. Avoid over­work.

Any woman can face the prob­lem of uter­ine hyper­tonic­i­ty, but women with the fol­low­ing symp­toms are espe­cial­ly at risk:

  • Hor­mon­al dis­or­ders, includ­ing endocrine. Insuf­fi­cient func­tion of the ovaries, pla­cen­ta, dys­func­tion of the adren­al glands
  • Infec­tious dis­eases in the pelvic organs of a woman
  • Fail­ure of the immune sys­tem dur­ing preg­nan­cy.
  • Pre­vi­ous abor­tions.
  • Tumor process­es (myomas).
  • Dis­eases of the heart, kid­neys
  • Anx­ious and depres­sive state of a woman dur­ing and even before preg­nan­cy. Inter­nal ten­sion, irri­tabil­i­ty.

More­over, if dur­ing the ultra­sound the indi­ca­tors of uter­ine hyper­tonic­i­ty in a preg­nant woman are record­ed, do not pan­ic. Today, these devices are very sen­si­tive, and any uter­ine con­trac­tions are read as hyper­tonic­i­ty. Only after a doc­tor’s exam­i­na­tion and the sen­sa­tions of the preg­nant woman her­self can a diag­no­sis be made.
