Questions About
tame the flame

What is heartburn?

Heartburn (acid indigestion) is an irritation of the esophagus that is caused by stomach acid. This can create a burning discomfort in the upper abdomen or below the breast bone.

How do I know I have heartburn?

Classic heartburn symptoms include: a burning sensation that starts at the upper stomach or lower breastbone and progresses upward.  Heartburn may occur after a meal or when bending over. 

I’ve never experienced heartburn before I was pregnant, what causes heartburn during pregnancy?

During pregnancy, the placenta produces the hormone progesterone, which relaxes the smooth muscles of the uterus.  Progesterone also relaxes the valve that separates the esophagus from the stomach.  As a result, gastric acids seep back up and cause an unpleasant burning sensation.  Progesterone also slows down the wavelike contractions of the esophagus and intestines, making digestion slower.  Later in pregnancy, as the baby grows, the abdominal cavity becomes crowded and pushes the stomach acids back up into the esophagus.  Many women start experiencing heartburn and other gastrointestinal discomforts in the second half of pregnancy.

Should I tell my doctor about the symptoms I am experiencing?
