Side Effects of Diabetes Medicines During Pregnancy - What Everyone Should Know?

Side Effects of Diabetes Medicines During Pregnancy - What Everyone Should Know?

Diabetes is a chronic disease, which is linked with a malfunction of the pituitary gland. Once this gland stops functioning properly, the body tends to absorb the glucose that comes from food, in order to create insulin. This creates diabetes of various kinds.

Here are the facts that you should know about diabetes during pregnancy and the side effects of diabetic drugs taken during pregnancy.

  1. Women may be suffering from Diabetes Mellitus before they conceive, or they may develop gestational diabetes after they have conceived. In either case, the blood sugar levels will be adversely affected and the baby will also be at risk of being born with the same condition. This will also have a bearing on the diabetes medication that may be administered to the expecting mother at such a time.
  2. Control over blood sugar during one's pregnancy is of utmost importance. This has to be done in a natural way, rather than with the help of medication. This is due to the fact that changes in the blood sugar level where the same goes beyond the normal range can result in birth defects if it is not controlled within the first 13 weeks of pregnancy.
  3. Choosing the diabetes medication methods during pregnancy is of utmost importance. One can choose to use a syringe or go in for oral medication, depending on how far the pregnancy is, as well as the level of the blood sugar.
  4. Doctors usually try to prescribe oral anti diabetic medication for women who are suffering from gestational diabetes as well as those who have been suffering from Diabetes Mellitus before the pregnancy.
  5. More than medication, the doctors suggest that the expecting mother should control her sugar levels with the help of proper diet, plenty of pregnancy-safe exercises as well as lower stress levels, which may trigger a sudden spike in the blood sugar levels, in many cases.
  6. Low carbohydrate intake is one of the best ways to ensure that the maternal sugar levels are low during pregnancy. This can prevent birth defects like a head that is too large for the body of the baby.
  7. The timing and the dosage of the medication must be carefully monitored and reported so that the patient is able to take charge of the glycemic control duration and dosage on her own. This will also help ensure that the pregnancy is a perfectly safe one with minimum complications.
  8. The above evaluation must happen on an at least weekly basis so that the medication is prescribed at the exact dosage as required by the patient’s body. This will ensure that the medicines do not cause any undue side effects on the pregnancy or the baby growing within the womb, at that time. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an endocrinologist.

Hi lybrate-user, chances of getting pregnant with unprotected intercourse on day 25th will be very very low. Don't worry about delayed period, it could be due to hormonal imbalance or stress. Please await period for 3-4 days if don't come then get urine pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy.

Progesterone is prescribed by many doctors during pregnancy to add extra progesteron, if your body is not producing one. But this is medicine is not needed at all, as our body is capable of producing more than enough progesterone for maintaining pregnancy. Taking progesterone is not going to harm your chances of getting pregnant but it does not increase also. This has no proven efficacy in any situation in pregnancy. You have already crossed the critical phase of abortion i. E. 3 months. This is not needed even if have had previous abortions also.

Since 7 days back I had sex with prostitute with condom but I consume alcohol so I afraid what will happen that's why I have anxiety so I need your suggestion for further tests.

You are panicking unnecessarily. The alcohol and using condom has no connection to affect any outcome. If you are too worried you can go for VD test and at the same time check for HIV too. If you worry yourself too much you can make all the symptoms of a disease appear and haunt you.

Don't get too anxious as anxiety itself delays the pregnancy one year is not a long time it will happen keep patience you must have sexual relationship on every alternate day from 10th to 20 th day of your periods considering first day of the bleeding as day one as ovulation takes place at that time and hence it is the fertile period.

Ovarian Cysts - 6 Ways To Treat Them Better!

Ovarian Cysts - 6 Ways To Treat Them Better!

All women have two ovaries located on either side of the uterus. They are fundamental for the process of child birth. However ovarian cysts have emerged as major problems which most women suffer from. In this, small pockets filled with fluids develop on the surface or within the ovaries. Though they are generally harmless, often times disappearing without any treatment, they do have the potential to create complications during child birth. Treatment of ovarian cysts depends on the size and the quantity of the cysts. 

Some of the treatments available are: 

  1. Patience and a careful watch: In case medical examinations reveal tiny cysts, patience can be the key word. If you did not suffer from perceptible symptoms and the cysts were revealed only through tests, you must follow it with regular visits to the doctor. Few medications and regular ultrasound examinations are all you need in such a case.
  2. Contraceptives: Birth control pills or contraceptives may be sometimes prescribed to you as possible medications to treat the cysts. Regular administering of these medicines deters the possibility of further development of cysts.  They also benefit greatly in reducing the possibilities of suffering from ovarian cancer in the future.
  3. Operations: In case the tests reveal large cysts, operations or surgical removal of them may be the only possible solution.  Operations are generally suggested if the cysts have persisted for a long time and are accompanied by terrible pain in the lower abdomen.
  4. Ovarian cystectomy: This is performed when the ovaries are kept intact and only the cysts are carefully removed.
  5. Oophorectomy: In this form of surgery, only the ovary that is affected with the cysts is removed, while the other is kept intact. Both the ovaries might also have to be surgically removed if they are found to be affected.
  6. Hysterectomy and subsequent removal of fallopian tubes and uterus: This is done when the cysts developed have the potential of becoming cancerous. In such a situation, an extreme measure is adopted with the complete removal of the ovaries along with the uterus and fallopian tubes. This is done in order to prevent the subsequent spreading of cancer.

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