Pregnancy - Is Your Body Ready For It?

Pregnancy - Is Your Body Ready For It?

When you decide to conceive, you are emotionally prepared to have a baby, but is your body prepared? It is important that one is aware of factors that are involved in ensuring that the body is ready to conceive and have a healthy pregnancy. Below are some of the factors are imperative to consider when it comes to conceiving.

The type of birth control that you have been using
If you are taking a combination birth control pill, it will cause a two-week delay in the period at the most once you stop taking the pill. This means that you will not have to take a break before you try to conceive. However, it will be easier to some extent to estimate the time when you are ovulating and when the baby will be due if you have experienced at least one normal period cycle before you conceive. If you are willing to wait for a few months, you will have to use condoms until the time your menstrual cycle gets back to normal. It may take longer to return to your natural fertility state if you have been taking any sort of long-term birth control like progestin injection.

If you are under any current vaccination
Infections such as German measles and chicken pox can be dangerous for your baby. Make sure that your immunizations are complete. In case you think that you are not properly immunized against certain infections, your preconception care may also include some blood tests to check for immunity of certain vaccines.

If you are suffering from any chronic medical conditions
If you have a certain medical condition such as asthma, high blood pressure, high blood sugar or obesity, you must ensure that it is well under control before you conceive. In certain circumstances, the health care provider may recommend adjusting the medication or another treatment before pregnancy.

If you are taking any supplements or medications
You should tell your provider about any herbs, supplements or medications that you are taking. Depending on the product that you are taking your doctor may make some alterations in the dose or usage of the product or may switch you to something else. It is the right time to take the prenatal vitamins since it helps in prevention of neural tube defects. The neural tube of the baby later develops into the spinal cord and brain of the baby.

This tube develops during the first month of pregnancy which is possible before you understand that you are pregnant.

Healthy lifestyle choices are important if you want a healthy pregnancy. Your doctor will explain to you the significance of a healthy diet, regular exercise, and managing stress. Follow it diligently to deliver your little bundle of joy successfully.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Four Tips That Can Help Bring Down Stress During Pregnancy!

Four Tips That Can Help Bring Down Stress During Pregnancy!

Pregnancy is a time of numerous changes in terms of one’s emotions and life. Most women happily welcome these changes but, they invariably bring in new sources of stress in their lives. Feeling stressed is quite common during pregnancy but, when your stress knows no bounds, it may become difficult to cope up. It can cause trouble while sleeping, you can lose your appetite and it can give you headaches.

High levels of stress for a continuous span of time can cause a host of health problems such as heart disease and high blood pressure. When you are pregnant, this form of stress can surge your chances of having a low birthweight baby or a premature baby. If you are too stressed during pregnancy, you should follow some stress reduction techniques that can go a long way in aiding you to manage stress. Some of the stress reduction tips are:

  1. Getting more sleep: You are already aware of the fact that getting more sleep can reduce your stress. This is because sleeping is a wonderful feat of the body that allows the brain to restore the neurotransmitters which become depleted when you are sleeping. When you are sleeping, the parasympathetic nervous system is also getting the desired rest that aids the body to deal with stress. Though sleeping becomes a tough ordeal, particularly in the third trimester, you can keep the temperature low, avoid eating anything for two hours before bedtime and use a body pillow for finding a comfortable position.
  2. Taking long baths: This is perhaps the best way to relax and when you are soaking yourself in lukewarm water, it will help in relaxing body aches as well. It will also curb down the anxiety when you are going into labour. Make sure that you don’t use essential oils that have not been approved by your doctor.
  3. Indulge in a physical workout: Exercise aids in the release of endorphins while improving circulation. When you are pregnant, exercise can take your mind off the stress and anxiety. Before starting, it is important to have a word with your doctor to determine the move that’s safe for you. The best workout is one that you can continue all through your pregnancy and come back to even after your baby is born.
  4. Having a soothing massage: You will have to find an experienced and certified therapist who can give you a warm and rejuvenating massage. Positioning plays a crucial role when you are pregnant and you will either have to lie sideways or rest in a specially made table for pregnant women. If you are not able to arrange for so many things, a shoulder rub from your spouse can also work wonders.

As can be seen, these measures are easy to adopt. So, with these tips, you will be able to manage any stress during pregnancy and deliver a healthy baby.

What Can Cause Back Pain During Pregnancy?

What Can Cause Back Pain During Pregnancy?

Pregnancy is not always a breeze and is associated with few to many problems. One of the common problems is the back pain, and statistics report that about half of all pregnancies are coupled with severe back pain.

Many women complain of terrible back pain while pregnant, and the pain may become so severe that it can also interfere with one’s ability to work or carrying out normal day to day activities. Here is an account of the possible causes and risk factors of back pain during pregnancy-

  1. Some key factors that are associated with developing lower back pain include having a history of low back pain before conceiving, lifting and bending, and undertaking physically strenuous work.
  2. When it comes to the causes of back pain during pregnancy, malfunction of the sacroiliac joint is the most common. Though it tends to be immensely painful, it can be treated and tends to get better after the delivery of the child.
  3. The sacroiliac joint is the functional unit of the pelvis which contributes to the normal alternating movement while walking. With the advancement of pregnancy, the alterations of the hormonal level prepare the pelvis to deliver the child by gradually loosening the ligaments that are in charge of these joints. The associated rise in motion, as well as instability around the sacroiliac joint, often leads to pain in this region.

Some other causes of back pain during pregnancy include:

  1. Gain in body weight: At the time of a healthy pregnancy, the backbone has to support and carry around 25 to 35 additional pounds. It can lead to pain in the lower back region. Also, the weight of the growing baby, as well as the mother’s uterus, exert pressure on the nerves and blood vessels in the back area and the pelvis.
  2. Changes in posture: Pregnancy invariably shits a woman’s centre of gravity. This can gradually and unconsciously lead to adjustment of body posture along with the way she moves. As a result, a woman may suffer from lower back pain and strain.
  3. Alterations in hormone levels: At the time of pregnancy, the body produces a hormone known as relaxin that causes the ligaments present in the pelvic region to relax while the joints become looser in order to prepare the body for the process of delivery. This hormone can also lead to the loosening of the ligaments supporting the spine and therefore cause back pain.
  4. Separation of the muscle: With the expansion of the uterus, two sheets of muscles running parallel from the rib cage to the pubic region may start separating from the centre beam thus causing intolerable back pain.

Though back pain is quite common when you are pregnant, it is advisable to consult an expert to be assured that you are not heading for any risk or complication that may be detrimental to the baby. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Painful Periods- Can A Specific Diet Help Ease The Pain?

Painful Periods- Can A Specific Diet Help Ease The Pain?

Menstrual cramps are not new to women after puberty, and generally are manageable without specific care. However, when the abdominal cramps interfere with your regular activities, it is important to take some steps in relieving it. The pain is usually caused by chemicals known as prostaglandins that promote inflammation and aid in blood vessel constriction as well as the contraction of muscles. The chemical breaks down during menstruation while constricting blood vessels in the uterus which causes muscle contractions, referred to as cramps.

It is possible to manage the pain caused by these cramps by following a healthy diet that can include the following foods:

  1. Soy milk: Some women have reported that having soy milk can help in reducing menstrual cramps. It is rich in natural plant chemicals known as isoflavones that act like estrogen in the body. Fortified soy milk also offers around 300 milligrams of calcium which will fulfill 1/3rd of the daily recommended intake of calcium.
  2. Fatty fish: Fish is considered one of the prime sources of anti-inflammatory fats referred to as omega 3-fatty acids. Researchers have found that women who consume omega 3 fatty acids experience less intense pain. To get maximum benefits, you can consume mackerel, salmon or trout. You should also include ground flaxseeds in your daily smoothies and yogurt.
  3. Legumes: Legumes such as lentils and beans offer a high amount of protein and fiber without the saturated fat that is found in animal-derived protein sources. Taking a high fiber diet that constricts intake of animal fats can improve the estrogen levels which, in turn, can help in reducing the menstrual pain.
  4. Fruits and vegetables: Eating foods rich in antioxidants and reducing the intake of processed ones can help in improving period cramps. You should opt for different colored fruits and vegetables, from broccoli to berries, from citrus fruits to bell peppers to tomatoes, and anything else that comes to your mind. Many fruits and vegetables such as apricots, raspberries, and brussels sprouts are also rich in fiber that can help in reducing muscle cramps during periods.
  5. Nuts: There is hardly any individual who doesn’t like eating nuts, particularly when they are roasted. It can help in alleviating the hunger for junk foods and the rich magnesium content is essential for reducing period pains.
  6. Dark chocolate: Research suggests that dark chocolate is known for satiating cravings for junk foods while boosting the serotonin levels. When you are on your periods, you should take one ounce of dark chocolate every day for reducing depression and fatigue and alleviating the physical discomfort.

Adding these food items can contribute a lot in sparing you from the undesired stomach cramps during periods.

I'm 22 year old female. I had unprotected intercourse but all came outside me. If this might get me pregnant then when will I understand this and if I have to go for abortion, How much does it cost from your clinic?

MBBS, DGO
Gynaecologist, Bangalore
Sperms are microscopic. The prostatic fluid helps in navigating. So even all of the fluid comes out the sperms make an entry.

My girlfriend is pregnant of 6 weeks and she took abortion pills but no bleeding yet its above 72 hours but no bleeding, only one time spot. She had stomach pain after taking pills, she is facing nausea, What is happening. Is abortion successful or any other problem please help?

MBBS, DGO

Abortion pills are not to be taken over the counter. Can cause problems. Should be done by a gynaecologist in a registered clinic. Self medication in relationship with abortion is cause of many problems.
