How Can Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections Be Prevented?

How Can Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections Be Prevented?

A urinary tract infection or UTI can be quite painful and uncomfortable. This infection can be described as an infection that affects the ureter, urethra, bladder or kidneys. Women have a shorter urethra than men which makes this more vulnerable to this kind of infection.

It is said that most women suffer from at least one bout of this infection in a lifetime. Urinary tract infections are caused by bacteria and may often recur after treatment. However, in most cases, this can easily be prevented. Here are a few tips to help prevent recurrent urinary tract infections.

  1. Drink plenty of fluids: Ideally, we should drink 8-10 glasses of water a day at regular intervals. This keeps the body hydrated and flushes toxins and bacteria from the body. Water also prevents the formation of kidney stones that could increase your risk of suffering from a urinary tract infection.
  2. Urinate frequently: If you drink the required amount of water, you will typically need to urinate frequently. Do not try to control your bladder. Holding your urine in your bladder allows bacteria to multiply inside the bladder. This is an easy way for a UTI to begin.
  3. Follow healthy bathroom habits: Cleanliness is the first step to preventing any infection. When using public restrooms, flush the toilet before and after urinating. In the case of women, it becomes important to ensure that the seat of the toilet is clean as well. After urinating wipe the residual urine with toilet paper in a motion that goes from front to back. Since the urethra is situated very close to the rectum, this step is very important. For uncircumcised men, it is important to wash the foreskin after urination.
  4. Wear loose clothes: Tight fitting clothes trap moisture and aid in the multiplication of bacteria. Hence, always wear loose fitting clothes that keep the area around the urethra dry. Also, avoid synthetic underwear and only wear cotton underwear.
  5. Urinate after intercourse: The relative closeness of the vagina to the urethra makes it easy for bacteria to enter the urethra during intercourse. Hence, make it a habit of washing your pubic region after intercourse and urinating. This helps flush out any possible bacteria that may have entered your body.
  6. Choose the correct method of birth control: Certain types of birth control such as diaphragms and spermicidal agents can promote a urinary tract infection. Hence, it is best to avoid these types of birth control and pick alternatives.

Hi lybrate-user, breast milk is the best nutrition for such a small baby. If the milk is insufficient, visit your gynecologist or lactation specialist for drugs to improve production. Before supplementing with cows milk or other alternatives, consult your pediatrician as using cows milk is harmful.

Know About The Most Common Bleeding Disorders!

Vaginal bleeding is a common phenomenon in women. Sometimes it is due to cyclical changes in the cycle, while other times, it may be indicative of something unnatural and perhaps severe. Abnormal vaginal bleeding includes:

  1. Heavy periods: This is a very common phenomenon. Bleeding during periods cannot be measured with optimum accuracy but periods can be considered heavy if it lasts over 7 days, if you need double protection, or if you seem to pass too much clots. It is recommended to consult your doctor if it starts to affect your lifestyle and causes hindrance in your day to day activities. The cause of heavy bleeding during menses is often unclear, but it may be indicative of uterine fibroids or cysts.
  2. Post coital bleeding: Post coital bleeding happens when you bleed after sex. The most likely reason for this to happen is if there is inflammation in the neck of the cervical opening or it is sore. The common cause of this can probably be sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia.
  3. Inter menstraul bleeding: Bleeding between your periods is also a possibility. There can be several causes for this. It can be broadly indicative of uterine polyps or infections. Polyps are fleshy masses of cells which are basically an abnormal growth in the uterus or cervix.
  4. Break through bleed: These bleeds happen very suddenly and spontaneously in the middle of the cycles or close to the menstrual cycles. These can happen when you start contraceptive pills and usually settle down in a matter of few months.
  5. Post menopausal bleeding: Bleeding or spotting post menopause can be indicative of something more serious. The common causes can be uterine or cervical cancer. Often, it may also happen that the uterus starts to degrade, and small fibrous bleeding or spotting may be visible.

3 Tips For Working Women During IVF Treatment!

3 Tips For Working Women During IVF Treatment!

The In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) technique manually involves combining the eggs of a woman with the male sperm outside the body through medical procedure. It is a popular treatment method for those who are unable to conceive. IVF treatment occurs through a number of stages –

  1. The ovaries are stimulated to produce eggs through the process of ovulation induction
  2. The eggs are retrieved from the woman and fertilized with male sperm outside the body and,
  3. The embryo is implanted back into the uterus.

Although in most cases IVF treatment yields positive results, there are certain guidelines one must follow during the treatment in order to avoid any complications -

Eat healthy meals in small portions throughout the day. Working women are bound to spend long hours at the workplace. There may be occasions when you are put under too much pressure and do not get enough time to look after yourself. But in spite of all the workload, you will need to maintain a healthy diet. It is advisable that you stick to light and nutritious food- a wholesome salad rich in veggies and fruits, sprouts, healthy snacks which consist of cheese and yogurt, meat and eggs. Omega-3 and Folate supplements are very important for staying healthy.

Do not stress yourself too much
While doctors normally prescribe you to walk and move around sometimes after the treatment, too much activity can be dangerous during this condition. Do not engage yourself in exercises that are too strenuous for your health. Working women are required to take extra care of their health because they are expected to commute to their place of work every day till they are on maternity leave. Commuting via public transports can be dangerous immediately after an IVF treatment and during pregnancy. It is advisable that you use a private car or cab to commute daily, or you can ask your colleague to pick you up to work.

Stay organized
There are too many things to keep in mind while undergoing the treatment and after the procedure. You need to keep a tab on all the prescriptions, medications, and follow up dates with your doctor. You can keep a notepad to write down specific details such as appointments or list down a few do’s and don’ts as a reminder. This will help you keep a check on your health even when you’re at work.

Pregnancy post IVF treatment can lead to stress and health issues, and since the pressure at your workplace cannot be completely stalled, these tips can help you deal with the condition with much ease.

4 Things About IVF That May Surprise You!

4 Things About IVF That May Surprise You!

IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is a procedure where the fertilization of the egg by a sperm occurs outside the human body. “In vitro” means “in glass”. Conducted under laboratory conditions, the ovum or ova are removed from the woman’s ovaries and the sperm is allowed to fertilize them. The fertilized egg or zygote is then allowed to grow in a culture of amniotic fluids for almost a week. This fertilized egg at its embryonic stage is introduced into the uterus in order to trigger a pregnancy.

IVF as a fertility treatment may be prescribed on the basis of various factors such male or female infertility, genetic disorder, or disorders with ovulation. So an IVF treatment may or may not include a surrogate. It makes good sense to know as much as you possibly can before you undergo any treatment.

Here are 4 lesser known facts about IVF-

1. IVF pregnancies too can become ectopic
An ectopic pregnancy is when the fertilized egg gets implanted on the outside of the uterus. This usually happens somewhere in the fallopian tubes, though the egg might implant itself elsewhere as well. Given that in an IVF the embryo is directly transferred into the uterus, it is safe to assume that ectopic pregnancies can be confidently avoided. But, the contractions in the uterine walls after the transfer may cause the embryo to shift elsewhere.

2. Acupuncture increases success
Research shows that acupuncture therapy before or during or after a cycle of IVF can increase the rate of success of the procedure. There are special therapies of acupuncture designed specifically to enhance the success of implantation.

3. Twins are more likely
A multiple embryo transfer enhances the chances of a successful pregnancy. But it also increases the chances that the pregnancy would lead to the birth of twins. Fraternal or identical twins born out of an IVF pregnancy are very common. In fact the likelihood of identical twins is especially high.

4. Healthy lifestyle will lead to better IVF cycles
A well-balanced diet with the all the essential nutrients and vitamins is absolutely necessary for a smooth IVF cycle. Lots of water and fluids along with regular sleeping habits are also important. You need to make sure that you get a good night’s sleep on an every day basis. A minimum of 7-9 hours of sleep every night will increase the rate of success of the treatment.

If you are undergoing treatments for fertility, perhaps these lesser known facts will help you.

Hi Lybrate-user, letrozole is an ovulation induction drug which stimulates your ovaries to produce eggs so that you could conceive. When this is combined with follicular scans and timed intercourse, your chances of conception is increased.
