Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Bowel irregularities are common in pregnancy
due to the hormonal
changes. It can also be caused due to poor dietary habits or due to infections. The current symptoms of passing stools frequently along with one spike of fever
, could be indicative of an infection. Now, most of these infections are self-limiting and should settle down with only supportive measures.
I would suggest the following:
1) Keep drinking plenty of fluids. You can also take an oral Rehydration olution (ORS
) to replenish the salt and water loss due to the frequent bowel movements
2) Avoid oily and spicy foods
3) You can take antacid
tablets or syrup to counter any stomach acidity problems which may also be causing your symptoms.
4) If your symptoms persist of worsen, or you develop recurrent spikes of fever, then you will need antibiotic medication.
