Bad Breath After Pregnancy

Submitted by Nick on May 20, 2013

Going through a pregnancy can be a very trying time for any woman, despite the fact that the rewards at the end of it can be more satisfying than any other experience. Going through a pregnancy will put a woman's body under a significant amount of stress and pressure as it grows and expands to be able to accommodate the new being, as well as the number of chemical changes that take place in the body to allow the pregnancy to go through smoothly.

Not everybody is aware of the development of pregnancy breath, but it is a common condition that is the result of hormonal changes in the body and could have certain long lasting effects such as in the case of certain dental issues. Because of the fact that we live in a world that is overly obsessed with aesthetic appeal, most women tend to ignore this problem and concentrate more on ensuring that they get their figure back to the way it was before the pregnancy.

Given the fact that a bad breath after pregnancy is not uncommon, there are a number of home remedies that can be used to help treat the condition.

Consuming a diluted solution of hydrogen peroxide and water or fresh lime juice or even simply rinsing your mouth on an everyday basis with water and salt solution can help. Studies have also shown that there are a number of birth control pills that can also be held accountable for the development of bad breath after pregnancy because of the fact that they subdue the hormonal levels when used extensively, resulting in the hormonal levels going a little haywire when the birth control pills are not being used anymore.

When deciding to use birth control pills as a method of contraception, it helps to discuss the advantages of one brand over another with your local chemist. You can find out if there are any side effects to be aware of.
