She needs a CBC, Thyroid function test, Clotting screen as well as a USG done if possible. Treatment has to be tailored accordingly. Usually the first few periods after menarche are anovulatory and can be heavy/ prolonged. These usually settle down with medicines.

ALways test tube baby is not needed. PCOS women may have difficulty in having baby but with treatment they respond well and majority of them conceive. The main treatment is drugs along with weight control by diet and exercise.

Sex with cloths on. I was wearing jeans and underwear and girl is wearing underwear and trouser. We did it on 6th of july. On 8th of july she got her period. 1st day spotting, 2nd,3rd day-bleeding with some clots. 4 day also bleed. From 5 day bleeding stops gradually. Can she become pregnant? What is the sign of blood clots? Clots are common in pregnancy or in period?

Once she got her menses means she is not pregnant. Cloths indicate heavy bleeding. Next time onwards be careful n use some barrier method.

Hi ! you get your haemoglobin checked. I think you are suffering from anemia. Take some iron & calcium supplements for 2-3 mths. It should help you. By the way, morning sickness is early morning nausea occurring in pregnancy.

Effect Of Potatoes Consumption On Pregnancy

Post Graduate Course In Diabetology, MD - Consultant Physician

Pre pregnancy potato consumption and risk of gestational diabetes mellitus

Potatoes are the third most commonly consumed food crop in the world, after rice and wheat.

About 35% of women of reproductive age (that is, aged 19-50) consume potatoes daily, accounting for 8% of daily total energy intake.

The health effects of potatoes are inconclusive, and there have been longstanding debates on the appropriate placement of potatoes in dietary guidance. Nonetheless, the dietary guidelines continue to include potatoes in the vegetable food group and encourage consumption.

Though potatoes are rich in vitamin c, potassium, dietary fiber, and some phytochemicals, unlike other vegetables they can have detrimental effects on glucose metabolism because they contain large amounts of rapidly absorbable starch. Indeed, several epidemiologic studies have linked higher potato consumption to increased concentrations of fasting plasma glucose, insulin resistance, and an increased risk of type ii diabetes mellitus.

Gestational diabetes mellitus (gdm) is a common complication of pregnancy characterized by glucose intolerance with onset or first recognition during pregnancy. Gdm is not only associated with adverse perinatal outcomes, it is also related to increased long-term cardiometabolic risk in both mothers and their offspring.

It is therefore, crucial to identify modifiable risk factors that could contribute to the prevention of GDM.

Previous studies have found that a diet with a higher glycemic index is related to higher plasma glucose and hba1c concentrations during pregnancy and could increase the risk of GDM.

I am happy to know that your sugar levels are in control. However, please check hba1c% it should be around 6.5%, which means the control is good. It is important that you also maintain your weight near normal, right now your bmi is 29.77kg/m2 which shows obesity. Obesity also affects diabetes and fertility. Please take care to cut your weight as it is high as your ideal body weight should be 57 kgs. You need to exercise for more than 1 h a day and follow restricted diet avoiding deep fried foods, red meat and high fat containing items.

Actually it is one of the safest method for the females who are less than 35 years old. It should be taken regularly daily. It has many non contraceptive benefits too.

Dear lybrate user, menstrual cycle can normally also vary sometime. Depending on your description that her cycle was regular before and she was expecting her periods in 2days. There is negligible chances of pregnancy. You can wait and watch. Don't worry.

I'm almost 8 weeks pregnant now. Had a miscarriage in July due to chemical pregnancy and this September 6th I came to I'm 6 weeks pregnant. I feel nauseating alot and vomiting feeling only throughout day and morning sickness with vomiting. Wanted to ask what precautions should I take as eating wise. As of now I can't bear any cooked food smell. So I'm sticking more into sandwiches and juices would it be enough? And by when I can start prenatal yoga exercise. And do I have to be very careful with this pregnancy? but doc did say that it looks healthy pregnancy. Is it normal and safe to get immediate pregnant so fast after the last miscarriage?

Yeah you should be very careful with this pregnancy. In 1st trimester mostly ladies complain of nausea and vomiting. Dont panick. Eat whatever you like. After 12weeks problem will subside. After1st trimester you can start your prenatal yoga. Have small frequent diets. See a nearby gynaec, and do all the necessary investigations done so that if there is any problem, it can be sorted out at the early stage of conception. She will advise you some medicine for nausea and vomting.
