Benefiber Abdominal Discomfort Causes and Reviews


The uterus, or womb, is the place where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. If you have an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg grows in the wrong place, outside the uterus, usually in the fallopian tubes. The result is usually a miscarriage.

Ectopic pregnancy can be a medical emergency if it ruptures. Signs of ectopic pregnancy include

  • Abdominal pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Feeling dizzy or faint

Get medical care right away if you have these signs. Doctors use drugs or surgery to remove the ectopic tissue so it doesn't damage your organs. Many women who have had ectopic pregnancies go on to have healthy pregnancies later.

Benefiber Abdominal Discomfort Reviews

Fri, 04 Feb 2011

That's because you're not drinking enough water. Increasing your intake of fiber should be done slowly to avoid Abdominal Discomfort and cramps. When increasing fiber in your diet it is very important to drink PLENTY of water so you do not get constipated or anything of that nature. Hope this helps
