Diabetes - How it Affects Your Pregnancy?

Diabetes - How it Affects Your Pregnancy?

The transition from being a woman to motherhood is a beautiful journey that remains memorable for a lifetime, for the mother as well as those around her who care for her and love her. There may be times when the health conditions and the pregnancy related discomfort may leave a bad taste, but it is also taken with a pinch of salt and forgotten as soon as the baby arrives. Whatever, may happen to the mother, but she would always try to make sure that the baby is safe and healthy when he arrives in this world. She always wishes that her child grows into a healthy toddler and a well developed adult.

While we may practice all sorts of care and caution in the course of a pregnancy, there are times when the body systems fail to function regularly, which is when the real problems arise. One of the most common, yet risky problems that usually appears or aggravates during pregnancy is the problem of glucose. A lot of women experience the problem of diabetes during pregnancy because their blood sugar goes extremely high with the changes in the lifestyle, dietary and hormonal conditions. In cases of women who may be patients of diabetes before pregnancy, they may experience increased blood sugar levels and may need to go on extra medication to keep their condition under control.

The types and effects of diabetes:
There are majorly two types of diabetes which is pre-existing and gestation induced. In the case of the pre-existing condition, the woman may already be suffering from diabetes before she conceived and in the gestational diabetes, the woman may have developed the condition after getting pregnant and may be able to go back to normal after the pregnancy is over. While it may be common in pregnant woman to develop high blood sugar, there are a number of things that could go wrong:

  1. Pregnant women with diabetes may find it difficult to go in for a natural labour and may have to opt for induced labour or even a caesarean delivery.
  2. It is also possible that women who already suffer from diabetes before pregnancy are more likely to carry a baby that is larger than regular babies.
  3. Developing diabetes may open up the doors for a lot of other disorders and diseases in the women such as problem with vision or disorders of the body organs such as kidneys.
  4. The foetus that develops in the womb may also be exposed to health issues and lack of development in the organs.
  5. If the baby is born fairly healthy, it may end up developing diseases after birth or even in adult life, which may be due to the diabetes in the mother at the time of the pregnancy.
  6. In extreme cases, the woman may undergo a miscarriage or the baby may be a still born.

In order to, be able to ensure a healthy and safe pregnancy, it may be essential to make sure that the best gynaecologist is chosen for regular checks and the meeting schedules with the doctor are followed religiously to rule out the possibility of unhealthy consequences.

You can stimulate your wife by doing more foreplay. During foreplay,touch her boobs,lips,her body,vagina or clitoris. Clitoris is most sensitive part of female genitalia. By doing this,she will get excited. From her body language,you can know that she needs sex.

Mam, I have done first night, so after first night she got periods within 10 days, after that we are not participated in intercourse then next month she doesn't get periods does it means she has pregnancy, if she is pregnant tell me how to stop? Please sir or mam.

If after your first night she has had menses and then in the next whole month you have NOT done sex, then the delay in menses could be due to so many factors other than pregnancy. It is easiest to rule out pregnancy , so first thing first do a urine test on an early morning sample of your wife's urine and get it done in lab.....IT will be negative. Having ruled out pregnancy, you can seek a Gynec consultation to get tablets for menses. If the test is positive, then you still can get help of gynec to have it aborted You must understand that the hormones which are needed for the menses to occur are released from the brain and so any activity that causes emotional upheaval like announcement of result or death in family or sudden joy, or coming to stay in husbands house post marriage can cause the menses to become irregular. If you want to prevent pregnancy for a time, till both of you are ready you can met a gynec to understand the choices you can have to prevent pregnancy

Hello, Having sex wouldn't land you in any problem related to your menses. It's something related to your internal reason, so get blood (for CBC) tested and an ultrasound (pelvis) done. Share the reports with me along with rest of the symptoms associated with it. Medication: For the time being, start taking homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe's Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - both for 3 times a day for 1month. Revert me back with the reports.

Squirting is good or bad, will squirting cause any problem, If it's good to health than tell me how to squirt.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

Squirting is good or bad, will squirting cause any problem, If it's good to health than tell me how to squirt.
Squirting in males is just an alternative of getting sexual pleasure as in sex. It is a perversion and therefore a personal choice to make. It is inappropriate to label it as good or bad. Squirting or masturbation has no proven benefits or harms to human health. However with repeated use of squirting to have immediate sexual gratification youngsters and even others tend to get psychologically dependent on it as stress relieving exercise which late may become a compulsion. Hence it is advisable to always find healthier ways of dealing with sexual anxiety and nor resort to squirting as an option or rule.

Each woman has chance of pregnancy only on day of ovulation and that occurs about 14 days prior to next expected period meaning in one with regular 28 days cycle 14 days after period.

Immunisation Against Tetanus

PGD Maternal Child Health, MBBS
General Physician, Akola
Immunisation Against Tetanus

It is seen that many people still think that tetanus is caused due to injuries by iron objects only. This is a gross misconception. Any injury, where there is a breach in continuity of skin, may it be by any object, thorn prick, animal bite, surgical trauma tetanus may be caused if the injury gets infected by tetanus spores. It is necessary to get complete immunisation by taking 2 doses at a 1-month interval, one booster after 1 year and then boosters every 5 years.

Hello, it is always in the best faith to rule out pregnancy with a urine pregnancy test and if negative then you should opt for a hormonal profile and an ultrasound pelvis to look for the possible causes as pcos or hyperprolactinemia/ hypothyroidism.

A small cyst can be a routine finding, it can disappear on its own or with a course of antibiotics. Small cyst does not affect pregnancy and there is no need to take any medicines, do write back about the size of the cyst.
