Depression & Anxiety During Pregnancy And Postpartum

A new study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine examines the way depression and anxiety during the pregnancy and postpartum periods affect a woman?s sexual life.
Researchers from Brazil and the United States found that depressive/anxiety symptoms, or DAS, can be linked to declines in sexual life for up to eighteen months after a baby is born.
While relationship and socioeconomic problems have been studied in relation to decreased sexual activity after woman gives birth, the association between DAS and sexual decline has not been clear.
The study focused on lower-income women who were receiving antenatal care at public primary clinics in S�o Paulo, Brazil. To learn more about sexual activity, research assistants interviewed the women between 20 and 30 weeks of pregnancy and again at some point during the eighteen months after delivery. During the postpartum period, the women completed the Self Report Questionnaire (SRQ-20), a tool that assesses depression and anxiety.
Eight-hundred thirty-one women participated during pregnancy. Of these, 644 women had resumed sexual activity and were available for follow up after delivery. The women?s mean age was 25 years and approximately 78% of them were living with a partner.
During the interview, the women were asked, ?Considering your sexual life before pregnancy, how would you describe your present sexual life: improved, the same, worsened??
Based on results of the SRQ-20, the women were divided into four groups:

? Group 1 had no DAS during pregnancy and the postpartum period.#11;
? Group 2 had DAS during pregnancy only.
#11;? Group 3 had DAS during the postpartum period only.#11;
? Group 4 had DAS during both pregnancy and the postpartum period.

About 21% of the women had seen their sex lives decline. This result was more likely among women in Group 3 (DAS during the postpartum period only) and Group 4 (DAS during both pregnancy and the postpartum period.)
Sexual decline was also associated with the mother?s age and the number of miscarriages she had had. The risk of sexual decline was twice as high for women over 30 when compared to younger women, a result that could be related to stress. Women who had had miscarriages had a 50% increase in the risk of sexual decline, which could be due to the emotional toll of miscarriage.
The researchers acknowledged that DAS and sexual decline could work in two ways. DAS could lead to sexual difficulties after delivery. But problems after delivery, such as episiotomies, could also lead to DAS.
The findings may help practitioners recognize DAS symptoms and their effects on the sex lives of lower-income women.

Pelvic Floor Dysfunction & Women?s Sexual Concerns
Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and urinary incontinence can have many sexual repercussions for women. Recently, a team of European researchers described these problems in detail in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
POP occurs when female pelvic organs drop and put pressure on the vaginal walls. Urinary incontinence (UI) refers to the loss of bladder control and leaking of urine. Both conditions can make women anxious about sex.
The authors explained that healthcare providers often do not consider themselves fully trained to treat sexual issues associated with POP and UI. Also, much research has focused on the quantitative aspects of sexual function for these women. The goal of this study was to add ?meaning and context? to the current literature.
Thirty-seven women between the ages of 31 and 64 participated. Each woman was about to have corrective surgery for POP, UI, or both POP and UI. All participants were sexually active except one, who avoided sex because of her condition, but wanted to start again after surgery.
Each woman was interviewed face-to-face, responding to open-ended questions about how POP and/or UI affected them sexually. Questions focused on desire, arousal, orgasm, pain, satisfaction, body image, partners, and intimacy. Because of a recording error, one interview could not be used. Therefore, results were based on interviews with thirty-six women.
Seventeen percent of the women said their sex lives were satisfactory, with no problems from POP or UI. Thirty-nine percent rated their sex lives negatively and 44% indicated that their sex lives were fine overall, but that certain aspects were negative.
Most Commonly Affected Sexual Areas
? Body image. Women with POP described their vaginas negatively, using descriptors like ?ugly? and ?not normal.? Those with UI were anxious about using incontinence pads and emitting urine odor. Many women felt embarrassed, depressed, unattractive, or undesirable. They were also concerned about their partner?s experience. For example, some women with POP worried that a partner could feel the prolapse.
? Desire. Many women found themselves less motivated to have sex because they feared pain and felt awkward. Some rushed through sex; others avoided sex altogether.
? Arousal. Distraction, fear of pain, and difficulty relaxing could all contribute to diminished arousal.
? Orgasm. Some women had trouble reaching orgasm because they couldn?t relax or ?let go.? Others found their orgasm less intense. Some didn?t allow themselves to reach orgasm because they feared incontinence.
? Pain. Women with POP were more likely to report discomfort or pain, which were mainly due to sexual position, the prolapse itself, or the fullness of their bladder.
The authors acknowledged that other factors, aside from POP and/or UI, could play a role in the women?s sexual problems. A partner?s sexual issues, relationship conflict, stress, and menopause could all be involved. ?Despite the profound effect of POP and/or UI, the confounding effect of these factors should not be overlooked when assessing female sexual function,? the authors wrote.
They also noted ways that healthcare providers can help women with POP and/or UI by addressing sexual problems. Letting patients know that these conditions are common may help them gain confidence.

I am 52 years male, whenever I go for fasting sugar test it comes around 120 states to be pre diabetic, however what I feel its not giving true picture fasting is less than 12 hrs and aslo I am taking drinks whisky 120ml, 5 days a week Is ot really a prediabetes situation please guide.

Homeopath, Delhi
This range of fasting sugar test is true but not always if you have doubt for diabetes then get oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) done. This is another test used to diagnose prediabetes. The doctor will give you instructions on how to prepare for the test, but you won’t be able to eat anything for eight hours before the test; you’ll be fasting. This test give accurate result for test.

Dear , Smoking, in the beginning, may not affect family sexual relationships. But family relationship may be at stake. Your wife may not like smoking and she and your children will be a victim of passive smoking. When age progresses, you will be troubled with sexual disorders due to smoking. Therefore, I suggest you to quit smoking. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I am Saurabh Joshi, 26 year age male. I do a lot of things for my loved ones and I love to do things for others. I want nothing for my self. But problem is that I think too much when they do not give importance for what I have done for them. Instead they started ignoring me. I go too depression and become very anxious and always think that what I have done wrong, why such think always happens to me, in short I feel like a victim. But still I do not stop doing good things to them. So tell me the solution that how can I overcome from my problem of over thinking. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, your problem does not seem to be" overthinking" or" doing good things for others" on one end you say that you do not want anything for yourself, but on the other hand you expect appreciation of your good deeds. I think you need to start thinking rationally. Your" overexpectations" are irrational beliefs that need to be rationalised through counselling. Consult a ret therapist or a cbt therapist for counselling.

How to cure loss of memory. I am 52 years old and very forgetful. Please prescribe some medicines.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

How can I increase willpower? I tried mindfulness breathing exercises, as suggested, and found them very difficult to do. My mind gets distracted within 15-20 seconds. Could you please tell me other exercises (preferably easy one) or some other methods. My intention is to increase willpower and concentration.

General Physician,
Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

I am 22 years male. I often used to smoke, I can't get out of it. How can I control smoking and how go make my cheek chubby. Please do answer for my questions.

Homeopath, Raebareli
Triggers are the people, places, things, and situations that trigger your urge to smoke. On your quit day, it's best to avoid them all together. Here are a few tips to help you outsmart some common smoking triggers: • Throw away your cigarettes, lighters, and ash trays if you haven't already • Avoid caffeine, which can make you feel jittery; try drinking water instead • Hang out with non-smokers; most people don't smoke, so you should have options • Go to a place where smoking isn't allowed; unless you want to break the law, you won't light up • Get plenty of rest and eat healthy; lack of sleep and too much sugar can trigger you to smoke • Consult me for homeopathic treatment. recommend me by clicking on recommend option and leave feedback.

It's good that you don't have girl friends. Having a girl friend is inviting problems. It's time for you to study, concentrate on that and aim to achieve a goal in your life. Have friends, talk to them casually. Don't give too much importance. It's not an imp issue, don't waste your time thinking like this.

My parents were strict at my childhood and never allow me to go to play with my friends or any function with my on but now I grown up but I couldn't go to any function or crowd because I feared and cannot faced or mingled with others this is new for me my parents couldn't allow me to do this in my child hood and beat me if I done things that's not my mother's wish in front of others. What can I do?

Homeopath, Secunderabad
The best way is the accept the facts and move on in a very dignified manner with no sense of bitterness in your mind as you cannot change the past. Your parents were simply over-protective and did the best according to their understanding. So nothing is lost. You don't have to feel guilty. Also do not rush to mingle with people. (Do not force yourself to change your nature overnight. Its always better to have a few good friends than to be famous and have lots of useless friends who will simply drain your time and energy in useless things. Focus on your goals and take time to study the people before becoming friends. Character of a person is more important than the status. You will definitely make very good friends and have good relations with every including your parents when your understanding and vision is clear.

Habitual smoking or chain smoking increases the Tar content in our lungs thus decreasing our lungs Air spaces called Alveolar sacs.Due to this decrease in air spaces,we cant exert much as our lungs cant carry more volumes of air due to decreased lung spaces.This leads to shortness of breath when we exert thus loosing our stamina.So to increase stamina,the first and foremost thing a chain smoker should do is ti quit smoking cigrattes and start doing morning cardio exercises or breathing exercises to increase lung spaces.It sounds very easy but my friend it is not that easy as it requires a lot of Determination and will power because you will have to face a lot of challenges while quitting this habit and you must have to be head strong.Once you quit your smoking habit,the things will automatically becomes easy for you.

It will give you tremendous relief if you see a good psychologist regularly. All the hurt that is deep inside you will get an outlet making you very light and comfortable. You can begin by online consultation with a psychologist of your choice from the comfort of your home/office. You can talk about your problem in a totally confidential manner and get to know the doctor with whom you are likely to interact on a regular basis for treatment. Online consultation will save you the botheration of travel to the psychologist and help you to assess for yourself if you at all need to go for face to face treatment or a video chat from your room/office is good enough. If you find an online consultation helpful, continue with it or simply try some other means.
