Question: Can I have gelusil in case of acidity
Answer: Hello dear. Yes you can. The hormone progesterone is one of the main causes of excess gas/acidity during pregnancy. As your body produces more progesterone to support your pregnancy, progesterone relaxes muscles in your body. This includes the muscles of your intestine. Slower moving intestine muscles mean that your digestion slows down. Few of the remedies are : Don't eat big meals. Take your time and chew thoroughly. Limit how much you drink during meals. Drink from a cup or glass – not from a bottle or through a straw – and don't gulp. Don't drink carbonated beverages. Take care.
