It's anything, but difficult to make a hasty judgment when you understand your period is late. In case you're attempting to conceive, you may have this feeling of incredulity. In case you're not, you may feel frustrated or disarrayed in the event that you know it is highly unlikely you could be pregnant. The truth of the matter is, however, the vast majority naturally consider pregnancy, at the time of a late period, it may be the case that or one of numerous different conceivable outcomes.
Here's a summary of the common causes behind a missed period:
- Preganancy: Sometimes when you miss your period, the cause maybe exactly what you think you could be pregnant! The initial symptoms of pregnancy such as bloating of the stomach, cramping of stomach, and tenderness in breasts can resemble the feeling that you get before your periods; may create confusion whether you are actually pregnant or if your periods are a little delayed. If your periods are delayed for over 10 days, then it is better to take a home pregnancy test.
- Stress: Stress can have several effects on your body such as headaches, acne, weight gain and other issues. Stress can also make you miss your periods. When you are stressed, your body synthesizes stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. These elevated levels force your brain to differentiate between essential and non-essential functions of the body. The blood supply to the muscles of the body can increase while systems such as the digestive system or the reproductive system can be subdued. This results in delayed period.
- Excessive exercise: Working out and maintaining fitness is a great thing to do; although when you overdo it, it restricts your body from producing enough oestrogen, the hormone that helps in completing your menstrual cycle. Thus professionals such as ballet dancers, athletes and gymnasts face a higher chance of suffering through amenorrhea (missing periods) for 3-4 months. Also if you work out too much without consuming enough calories, it can cause disruptions.
- Illness: When your body is battling a disease such as common cold or even fever, your brain starts concentrating on the functions that are important for the body. This can contribute to missing your period.
- Weight: If you lose excessive amount of weight without maintaining a good diet, you can deprive your body from producing oestrogen that helps build up the uterine lining. The same thing happens with eating disorders such as bulimia or anorexia. On the contrary, if you are obese, it can result in over production of oestrogen that can stop your ovulation in totality. This may lead to heavy, irregular periods. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!
I am starting the sex with my wife, so for today, so how many days I do this process and we get child. How many day I will get child.
One of the most important choices before a pregnant woman about to give birth is whether to have a normal delivery or a cesarean delivery. Today, both are equally common. A normal delivery involves pushing the baby out through the vagina. A cesarean delivery involves a small surgical procedure to cut open the mother’s abdomen and uterus to take the baby out. A Lower Segment Cesarean Section or LSCS is the most common cesarean procedure.
At the beginning of this procedure, a catheter is inserted into the bladder to collect urine through the course of the surgery. An epidural or spinal anesthetic is administered that numbs the woman from the waist down. In some cases, a general anesthetic may be given in its place. A horizontal cut is then made along the pelvic line of the abdomen through which the baby is delivered. Once the baby has been taken out of the uterus, the umbilical cord is cut and the mother is given an oxytocin injection to induce uterine contractions. This helps separate the placenta which can then be removed. Lastly, the uterus is sutured closed with soluble stitches and the abdominal wall is also stitched or stapled.
Misconceptions - Debunked!
There are a number of misconceptions surrounding a Lower Segment Cesarean Section procedure. Some of the most common amongst them are:
- A woman who has an LSCS cannot breastfeed her baby: Though the transition from colostrum to mature milk may take longer after LSCS, it does not have to keep a mother from breastfeeding her child. In most cases, the onset of mature milk is delayed by only a day or two. You can also facilitate breastfeeding by asking a nurse or a lactation consultant for advice on how to breastfeed your baby while lying on your side. This keeps the weight of the baby off your incision.
- A mother cannot have skin to skin contact with her baby after delivery: This varies case to case. It depends on a number of factors including the amount of anesthesia you are under. However, in most cases, doctors will allow you to have skin to skin contact with your baby after delivery. This helps stabilize the baby’s temperature, heart rate, and breathing. It is best to check hospital protocols on this before being admitted for delivery.
- Recovery for a normal delivery and LSCS is the same: Recovery in the case of LSCS can take up to 6 weeks while in the case of a normal delivery; this will take only 1-2 weeks. In some cases, a hospital stay may be needed even after a normal delivery but it is usually for a very short period of time.
