Is 137mg/dl post lunch blood sugar level harmful during pregnancy?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology)
Gynaecologist,
It is an indication of decreased glucose tolerance. Chances are that gestational diabetes may develop at a later stage. It is better to get a full panel of blood tests for gestational diabetes, start diet modification and see your doctor.

If I have sex with my wife multiple times a month without any protection is it safe. We both are healthy and do not carry any disease.

Yes if it is safe but chances of pregnancy are there specially 8 days before and 8 days after first day of bleeding in a regular cycle of 28 days. Chances of penile and urinary infection are also there if you can not maintain hygiene.

Myths Associated With Pregnancy

Myths Associated With Pregnancy

Pregnancy is the most exciting period of a woman's life and has unique challenges. There are numerous well wishers - family members, friends, relatives- giving you free advice as what to do and what not to do for having a healthy baby. Many of these advices are just myths.

Following is a list of common myths and actual realities. It is best to follow your doctor's advice and not believe in myths:

  1. Your belly shape tells the gender of the baby: One of the most common myths during pregnancy is the shape of a woman's belly. If a woman is carrying high, it is a girl and if she is carrying low it is a boy. The fact behind this is the shape of a woman's belly during pregnancy depends upon her muscle size, tone, amount of fat deposited around her abdomen and also on the position of the baby.
  2. Your food cravings tell the gender of the baby: Craving for sweet food means it will be a girl and craving for salty food means you will be having a boy. According to literature food cravings have nothing to do with determining the sex of a baby.
  3. Eating more is needed for pregnancy: Another common myth is that pregnant mother must eat for two. Calorie requirements increase during pregnancy. Pregnant women require about 350kcals more to ensure that the baby is healthy. Eating a balanced diet during pregnancy rather than eating for two is required to fulfil the demands in pregnancy.
  4. Exercise will harm my baby : Exercises in pregnancy should be started after consulting your doctor and should be performed under a trained professional. Being fit improves your stamina and prepares you for the strenuous process of labour & delivery. Swimming, yoga, moderate amount of exercise, brisk walk are recommended during pregnancy, but should only be practiced after consulting with doctor.
  5. Sleeping on your back harms the baby: Sleeping on your back will not harm your baby, but you will feel better if you sleep on your left side. Sleeping on your left side actually increases blood flow to your body.
  6. Eating papaya increases chances of miscarriage: Raw papaya is suspected to be abortifacient. It contains chymopapain which is supposed to induce early labour. Ripe form of Papaya is a good source of vitamin A and is safe during pregnancy.
  7. Eating Saffron in milk affects the skin tone of the body: Remember skin colour depends upon the genes and food items have nothing to do with skin colour. Saffron has high nutritious content due to presence of Thiamine and Riboflavin. Because of its nutritional value it can be taken in pregnancy in very small doses.

Is there any symptoms of getting pregnant before missed periods? Kindly give examples of symptoms, if any.
There is no symptom of pregnancy before the menses. Most important symptom is missed period. There r other symptoms but all of them appear 2 weeks after the missed period. Those r nausea, vomiting, breast fullness and increased urination. If you have a missed period then you should get urine pregnancy test done at home after 7 days of missed period to confirm it.

Hi sir, I am 27 old I am taking alcohol and sex habits 2014 to till date when I do sex with aunts after 2 months I face bad breath and skin infections I inform to my near doctor he would give me some tablets but no reaction I am testing all tests it's good my problem is when I do sex with Aunty same smell I am getting in my mouth.

U r suffering bad breath. Causes =Food. The breakdown of food particles in and around your teeth can increase bacteria and cause a foul odor. Tobacco products. Smoking causes its own unpleasant mouth odor. Poor dental hygiene. Dry mouth. Medications..Infections in your mouth. What you eat affects what you exhale. That's because as food is digested, it's absorbed into your bloodstream and then is expelled by your lungs when you breathe. Eat a healthy, balanced diet and regular meals. Void breath busters such as garlic, onions, and some other spicy foods. Chronic garlic users cannot only have chronic bad breath, they also often have body odorCertain diets -- such as extreme fasting and very low-carb diets -- can give you bad-smelling breath. If you want to rid your complaints consult me.

Hi mam I want to know the main cause of pcos and what exactly happens to the organs of the body in this disease.
Dear lybrate-user PCOS is a problem where the ovaries single or both donot release ovum and the ovary is filled with small cysts, until the cysts resolve the problem hormonal imbalances will be there, there is fluctuations in almost all harmones related to female along with pancreas, and Androgen harmonies, hence early diagnosis and treatment helps in infertility also.

Hi I am 30 years old woman, and till last month I had reguler periods of menstrual cycle, my last date was on 1-april-15, but in this month still I didnt get periods, I am married since 2 years, I done pregenency test 3 times but it shows negative, my weight is 38 kg and my height is 5 2, what could be the reason for not having periods till now?

I think that you are under weight, and what is your hb%, the regularity of menses depends up on hormonal balance, and diet what you are taking daily. That is most probably due to under nutrition and anaemia! st you take proper diet and go for hormonal essesment.

Hello Doctor! My age is 32. Weight 60kg. I am trying from past 2 years but no luck. I always have a 28 days cycle. My Amh is low >0.30. I have been told for IVF with donor egg. I have finally made up my mind for it. Please let me know what all I should keep in mind before going for it. My Hysteroscopy is already done 2 months before which had a small polyp which is removed. I wanted to know is this process very painful or do I have to be on lot of drugs can I resume my normal activities. If I have a donor will the child be like me or completely like the donor. Kindly reply Thanks.

First of all relax, according to your reports you have taken right decision. Nothing special is required for this, all you need to do is be patient in the whole process and follow your doctors instruction, this process is not at all painful, this is totally lab procedure till implantation of baby in you. Donor are selected who matches the patient profile, it is not so that baby will look like donor. It depends on both ovum and sperm.
