INFORMATION FOR WOMEN HAVE DIARRHEA DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is diarrhea?

Diarrhea is the frequent excretion of feces at an abnormally high frequency and in liquid (or mostly liquid) form. During pregnancy, diarrhea can be due to inflammatory bowel disease (IBS; includes Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis), food poisoning, deficiencies of enzymes, celiac disease, or, most often, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). IBS is a common disorder of gastrointestinal function that can result from a variety of abnormalities that are generally minor, as they are not connected with any anatomic problems, inflammation, or other disease process. Diarrhea also can be a side effect of several different types of medications, including antibiotics.
