Traveling could be one of the reasons for abortion but there can be other reasons also for which tests are done at the time of abortion only if it was not done then next time when you conceive get under the treatment of obstretician immediately and follow her advise and me sure you don't travel this time.

Most likely you have a urine infection. Please give a urine for RE and C/S . After that use a single dose of AF-KIT4 to help with your symptoms. Further treatment required will depend on your urine culture report.

If more than 15 days have passed since the start of harmoni f tablets then its contraceptive benefits may apply and you may not conceive, but if you had unprotected sex withing 15 days of starting the pills, then you have a chance of pregancy. Generally in pcod the ovulation is not happening, so considering this the chances of conception are rare, but if you have missed your period, it would be better to do a urine pregnancy test using a morning sample of urine in a lab. Do not use home kits as sometimes they give improper results, if you get the test negative, just wait for the periods, if unfortunately you have a positive test, it could mean you are pregnant and may have to seek a gynecologists opinion whether to continue the pregnancy or not.

Miscarriage and Tips to Ensure a Healthy Conception

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Miscarriage and Tips to Ensure a Healthy Conception

Miscarriage refers to a pregnancy that has ended prematurely, within 20 weeks. Research shows that around 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies end in miscarriages. Chemical pregnancies cause 50-75% of all miscarriages. The condition happens when a pregnancy is lost not long after implantation, bringing about bleeding that happens around the time of her normal period. The woman may not understand that she has conceived when she encounters a chemical pregnancy.

The normal period where miscarriages are expected to occur is during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. While pregnancy can be an overwhelming and exciting experience, it is beneficial that the woman keeps herself informed about the possibilities of miscarriages.

Some types of miscarriage are:

  • Threatened Miscarriage
  • Inevitable or Incomplete Miscarriage
  • Complete Miscarriage
  • Missed Miscarriage
  • Recurrent Miscarriage
  • Blighted Ovum
  • Ectopic Pregnancy
  • Molar Pregnancy

Symptoms:
In case of any of the following signs, the doctor should be consulted immediately,

  • Mild to Severe Pain
  • White-Pink Mucus
  • Weight loss
  • True Contractions
  • Sudden Decrease in Signs of pregnancy
  • Tissue made of clot-like material passing from the vagina
  • Bright red or Brown bleeding with or without cramps
  • Investigations

Ultrasound:

  • The majority of women will require a transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) and 98% of complete miscarriages can be diagnosed in this way.
  • If a transvaginal ultrasound scan is unacceptable to the woman, then a transabdominal ultrasound scan should be offered and the woman should be made aware of the limitations of this method of scanning.
  • If there is no visible heartbeat then a second scan should be performed. This is either done at a minimum of 7 or 14 days, depending up the measurements of the crown-rump length or the mean gestational sac.
  • Be aware that a woman with a pregnancy of unknown location may have an ectopic pregnancy.
  • Serum hCG
  • Serum hCG tests can help to exclude an ectopic pregnancy in women with a complete miscarriage (or pregnancy of unknown location), determined by ultrasound.
  • Serial tests are required but results should complement clinical assessment and not replace it. Two tests are taken as close as possible to 48 hours apart:
  • >63% increase suggests ongoing pregnancy.
  • >50% decrease suggests pregnancy is unlikely to continue.
  • A woman with results between these parameters should be reviewed in the EPAU withing 24 hours.
  • Slow doubling times are associated with miscarriage and declining values have high sensitivity of 93-97% in diagnosing a complete miscarriage[1].
  • Rare causes of a raised hCG should also be borne in mind, including gestational trophoblastic disease or cranial germ cell tumour, which must be considered.

Progesterone

One meta-analysis has shown that a single low progesterone measurement for women in early pregnancy, presenting with bleeding or pain and inconclusive ultrasound assessments, can rule out a viable pregnancy. However, a very low serum progesterone can be seen in normal viable pregnancies, so progesterone should not be used as the definitive diagnostic test without other evidence.

Management

  • Admission to hospital can be avoided in 40% of women with threatened or actual early pregnancy loss.
  • Following a miscarriage, all women should have access to support, follow-up and formal counselling when necessary.
  • Anti-D rhesus prophylaxis (250 IU) should be offered to all rhesus-negative women who have a surgical procedure to manage a miscarriage.
  • However, anti-D rhesus prophylaxis does not have to be given to those women who:
  • Receive solely medical management for an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage.
  • Have a threatened miscarriage.
  • Have a complete miscarriage.
  • Have a pregnancy of unknown location.
  • Women need evidence-based information to guide their decisions, as well as access to support and counselling; leaflets, web addresses and helpline numbers for support organisations should be offered to all women experiencing miscarriage.
  • There is no evidence to support a couple delaying attempts to conceive following a miscarriage.

Treatment:

The main purpose of treatment is to prevent haemorrhage and infection. It is common that the body expels all the fetal fluid during the earlier stages of the pregnancy. In case it doesn t, a procedure known as D&C (Dilution & Curettage) is performed to remove the fluid and prevent infection.

Since most miscarriages occur due to chromosomal abnormalities, nothing significant can be done to prevent them.

Tips to be taken to ensure a healthy conception are:

I am suffering from nipple white sticky discharge, brush pain and more nauseated, and irregular periods every 3 months,
Delayed menses may be due to Anemia, weakness, stress, Hormonal imbalance, Pregnancy and other Uterine structural problems. Most probably you are suffering from poly cystic ovarian disease. In this problem instead of follicle rupture and ovulation follicle is transformed into small cystic structure along the periphery of ovaries. Regular female hormones are insufficient to maintain regular periods also causes acne pimples And hair-loss with some weight gain sometimes. Also in PCOS, prolactin hormone levels are raised leading to discharge from nipples. Go for check your prolactin, LH-FSH hormones, Testosterone, insulin and USG Gynae for more help. Always be happy with your personality and enjoy your present, Avoid all types of stress. Take more fruits and vegetables, Avoid junk food (Fat fried street food with more calories) Maintain physical activities regularly Have sound  Sleep regularly  with best possible schedule. You can also have some Homeopathic medicine (if you have faith) for Fat reduction and regularise your periods (may be due to PCOS) For more help Send me your reports, you can contact me in person online through Lybrate.

My wife is pregnant from 5 months and if we do any sexual activity now then is there any harm to baby?
Your developing baby is protected by the amniotic fluid in your uterus, as well as the strong muscles of the uterus itself. Sexual activity won't affect your baby. So it is completely safe to sex during pregnancy.

you need rich iron,calcium,protein,follic acid,vitamin,minerals diet during fourth month of pregnancy. essential fatty acid diet contains sufficient amounts of Omega 3, 6, 9 fatty acids by taking foods like fresh water fish, tinned tuna, nuts and olive oil ,high fiber foods like whole grains, oats and green vegetables. Opt for iron fortified whole wheat bread instead of regular white bread.have 2 glasses of milk or 500 gm of curd or 200 gm of paneer. These act as good supplements to your calcium medication.take dry fruits.

Consult with a gynecologist. If there is nothing internal than started little exercise to give strength to your body. Take green vegetables in your diet and nothing to worry, it will be all right but take a doctor's consult first. If there is something different in your moods in your menstrual cycle just inform me.
