What should a women do in pregnancy? When she feel more pain in stomach and in knees also?
A pregnancy state is a natural state and its not a disease per se. She should behave normally during pregnancy and just that diet should be slightly increased from second trimester with increase in daily calorie intake by 300 calories in second trimester, hence 2400 calories daily.

Hello, Menopause is defined if menses do not occur for atleast 1 year. The best way to rule out pregnancy would be to get a serum beta hcg test done.

What?s the Only Best Thing You Must Do For Yourself ?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
What?s the Only Best Thing You Must Do For Yourself ?

Being positive is the best thing you can do for yourself!

Do you see life as a blessing, an opportunity or a burden? The answer to this question plays a significant role in shaping your existence as it decides your outlook towards life. Being positive or optimistic is highly beneficial for your psychological and physical well-being.  Positive thinking is an idea that not only drives you towards success, but also makes way for happiness in your life.  

Cultivating positivity is undoubtedly the best thing you can do for yourself as it makes your life worth living, besides delivering a bunch of health benefits.

Here are 6 of them.

1. Gives you a longer life span

A positive outlook not only keeps you happy, but also increases your life expectancy by manifold in comparison to people with pessimistic thoughts. A recent Dutch study analysed the thought patterns of people for 9 years to come to this conclusion. According to this study, which was published in JAMA Psychiatry, people with a generally pessimistic approach have decreased life expectancy by 55%.  

2. Increases good cholesterol level

A research was conducted in 2013 by Harvard School of Public Health to find the link between optimism and cholesterol levels. The study was carried out among middle-aged people and it revealed that that optimistic thought patterns indicated increased levels of “good” cholesterol.

3. Boosts your immune system

Researchers are of the opinion that people who cultivate positive thoughts show a stronger immune response in comparison to people who associate themselves with negative emotions.

4. Increases your confidence

Having positive thoughts can be very advantageous for you as it teaches you to feel good about yourself. This encourages you to try new things and accept challenges more heartily, which in turn boosts your confidence level drastically. Increased self confidence drives you towards success and enhances your performance in all phases of life.

5. Helps you cope with stress better

Studies show that when optimists face a situation, which is not in their favour, they focus more on solving the problem instead of getting disappointed or frustrated. Positive thoughts make you enthusiastic and teach you to deal with any stressful situation with a smile, thereby helping you to work your way out of a crisis. It has also been observed that positive thinking among adolescents acts as a source of protection against depression and behavioural problems commonly faced during teenage.

6. Reduces risk of cardiovascular diseases

A recent study conducted by the American Heart Association, and published in its journal Circulation, showed that people who depicted a positive attitude towards life had decreased their chances of getting heart diseases by 73% in comparison to their pessimistic counterparts. According to researchers, this happens because optimism leads people towards a healthier lifestyle, comprising of a balanced diet and a proper exercise regime. Moreover, optimistic people also have the improved ability to deal with stress, which further points towards a healthy existence.

Hi , I totally agree with your doctor, you must get done your ultrasound lower abdomen earliest possible. It serves three purposes__ 1- rules out ectopic pregnancy, can have same picture but can cause emergency at anytime. 2- to confirm foetal cardiac activity which will prove viability of pregnancy 3- presence of any subchorionic bleed, shows threat to pregnancy in future. Ultrasound is completely safe in pregnancy, no side effects & don't worry every thing will be ok. God bless you.

Emotional Health, Counselling and Fertility Treatment

Emotional Health, Counselling and Fertility Treatment

Few couples are prepared for the diagnosis of infertility, and for most, this will be one of the greatest challenges they face together. Fertility treatment can affect a couples work, family, relationship, social life and self-esteem.

Although everyone is different, there are some common questions that come up for many couples. Have you wondered about any of the following:

  • How to deal with your friends who are getting pregnant and having babies?
  • Who to tell and what to tell?
  • How to fend off unwanted questions and/or comments?
  • How to relieve tension?
  • How to keep your relationship strong?
  • How to deal with the workplace and frequent absences?
  • How to find strength and strategies to keep going cycle after cycle?

It is strongly recommended that anyone undergoing fertility treatment attend at least one counselling session at the start of treatment. At our Centre, you have the opportunity to use a complimentary counselling session once during every stimulated cycle. You will find out more about the emotional processes involved in fertility treatment, realistic expectations of outcomes, both physical and emotional, and how to prepare for and manage the rollercoaster of emotions.

It is very common to fear that getting counselling means that there is something wrong with you or that it confirms a weakness and inability to handle treatment. But this is not the real scenario infertility helps you manage emotions, cope better with day to day stresses, whether these are related to treatment or not, and ultimately prevent long-term problems, such as depression or anxiety.
Overall, our goal is to help you gain a greater sense of control and reclaim life amidst treatment. It is therefore our role as Counsellors to help you identify which strategies would suit you the best. We become support person, educator, counsellor, therapist, mediator, and life coach.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Gums bacteria can cause preterm delivery

Proper dental care can prevent heart attacks, heart blockages, asthma and COPD. This was stated by Padma Shri, Dr B C Roy & DST National Science Communication Awardee, Dr K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and Honorary Secretary General IMA. Bacteria present in the gums have been linked to many diseases in the past.

Periodontal treatment should be included in prenatal care programs, as per a study in the Journal of Periodontology, which has shown that treating gum disease in pregnant women may prevent preterm birth.

The study has shown that while pregnant women, in whom the periodontal disease was treated, were no more likely to deliver their babies prematurely than women with no gum disease, those who did not get treatment had a nearly 90-fold increased risk of premature delivery.

Another study found that the more bacteria women with periodontal disease had in their gums during and after pregnancy, the more likely they were to deliver their infants prematurely.

The muscles loosen up during pregnancy needs to be toned up postpartum. You can start doing abdominal tone up exercises, walk briskly to lose weight if it is more. Wear corset beneath dress before going to a party.

Hi, the menstrual bleeding stops once a female conceives as egg gets fertilized. About 20% of women have some bleeding during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Possible causes of first trimester bleeding include: implantation bleeding. You may experience some normal spotting within the first six to 12 days after you conceive as the fertilized egg implants itself in the lining of the uterus. Other causes of bleeding during pregnancy can be - miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized embryo implants outside of the uterus, usually in the fallopian tube, molar pregnancy, placenta previa, placental abruption, uterine rupture, vasa previa, premature labor. Additional causes of bleeding in late pregnancy are: injury to the cervix or vagina, polyps, cancer.

What Are the Predictors for Pregnancy Induced Hypertension?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology

What Are the Predictors for Pregnancy Induced Hypertension?

Pregnancy is a thrilling time period for every woman, but at times things can go wrong and turn out to be scary due to certain complications. Pregnancy Induced Hypertension or Preeclampsia is a high blood pressure disorder of pregnancy. It is a major problem that occurs in women during their pregnancy and it has an effect on nearly 7% of the first-time mothers. The Pregnancy Induced Hypertension causes serious complications and in severe cases, it is dangerous for the baby as well as the mother. Pregnant women suffering from this condition are induced with labor early if they suffer from PIH or pregnancy 
Induced hypertension.

The Three levels of Pregnancy Induced Hypertension include:

  1. Only high blood pressure
  2. High blood pressure and protein in urine or swelling
  3. High blood pressure, protein in urine, convulsions and swelling

Common Symptoms of Preeclampsia:
The main symptoms that occur are:

  1. Blurred vision
  2. Upper right Abdominal Pain
  3. Headaches
  4. Swelling in the Face and Hands
  5. Infrequent Urination
  6. Rapid weight gain

Physiologic Tests:

The methods that are used to test Pregnancy Induced Hypertension

  1. Cold pressor test
  2. Rollover  test
  3. Isometric handgrip tests

These tests are carried out in pregnant women during their 29th to 31st week of pregnancy. These Pregnancy Induced Hypertension tests when proved positive and the diastolic rise in pressure was found to be about 20 mmHg.  The pressure observed was not more than 140/90 in women in any case of two consecutive occasions. These results specify that not any of these trouble free physiologic tests are of any application as a predictor of Pregnancy Induced Hypertension.

Cure: 
Preeclampsia occurs in women with a history of hypertension in parents, high proteinuria, BMI or Body Mass Index and family history of diabetes. It is by using a partial set of maternal characteristics that pregnant women are at an increased risk of developing Pregnancy Induced Hypertension.

The cure for this condition-preeclampsia is delivery and in many cases, doctors insist their patients go for a caesarian section. Sometimes the Doctors suggest for an early delivery as it includes an additional threat of loss to the mother to be due to prematurity. 

The inflammatory disorder is characterized by anti-angiogenic protein in high levels and soluble forms like tyrosine kinase in the maternal circulation. It is very important that pregnant women adopt the process of self evaluation to safeguard from risk of high blood pressure. They must monitor their blood pressure from time to time as it would empower them to care for their pregnancy and reduce the chances of complications during pregnancy.

I am married person but I have not kid my wife not conceive but all test are ok. so, what to do next?
About 10% of cases of infertility are unexplained wherein all the tests done for husband and wife are normal and no obvious cause can be found. In these cases its best to keep trying. But if nothing happens say in 6months time or if you both are particularly keen seek the help of a fertility specialist who will guide you for iui or ivf. Iui is lots cheaper and is usually the first resort.
