Inguinal hernia during pregnancy

Pregnancy is one of the causes that can contribute to a hernia, since the weight of the foetus pushes on the abdominal wall. The greatest worry for future mothers is: Does an inguinal hernia during pregnancy necessarily mean a caesarean?

Normally, there is no need for correction. The hernia can form during pregnancy or be pre-existing. In the latter case, they resolve by the seventh month.

If, on the other hand it appears after the fifth month during pregnancy, this is generally due to congested veins and resolves after birth.

In any case, it is a good idea to follow the exercises for strengthening the abdomen and adopt a diet that is light on the digestive system.
