Kindly note as all your reports are fine and you are not able to conceive than this is termed as unexplained infertility. We would recommend that you should undergo Laparoscopy to see whether there is any hidden endometriosis or not. Depending on the laparoscopy report you can try 1 or 2 cycles of IUI or you straight forward go for IVF.

Benefits of Vitamin D Supplement During Pregnancy for Mother and the Baby

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS, DGO

Benefits of Vitamin D Supplement During Pregnancy for Mother and the Baby

Vitamin D and pregnancy go hand in hand. Expecting mothers need to ensure they get the recommended amounts of vitamin D during pregnancy for the healthy development of the baby as well as their own well-being. 

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin obtained mostly from consuming fortified milk or juice, fish oils and dietary supplements. It also is produced in the skin by exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D, which is ingested or produced in the skin must undergo hydroxylation in the liver and kidney to promote absorption of calcium from the gut to enable normal bone mineralization and growth. Severe maternal vitamin D deficiency has been associated with congenital rickets and disordered skeletal homeostasis coupled with fractures in the newborn during pregnancy.  Vitamin D is necessary for the metabolism and absorption of phosphorus and calcium. Many studies are finding a connection between low serum vitamin D levels and an increased risk of certain types of autoimmune disease, cancers, insulin resistance, neurological disease and cardiovascular disease.

Latest studies have shown that vitamin D deficiency is common during pregnancy especially among women residing in northern latitudes, living in cold climates or wear sun and winter protective clothing and ethnic minorities, especially those with darker skin. As the vitamin D level of newborn is largely dependent on maternal vitamin D status, the infants of mothers with vitamin D deficiency are also at risk of vitamin D deficiency. Inadequate level of vitamin D can lead to abnormal bone growth, fractures, or rickets in newborns. Deficiency of vitamin D leads to a higher risk of pregnancy complications like gestational diabetes, premature birth and low birth weight.

The symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency include aching muscles, bone pain, and softened bones leading to fractures. Fish liver oil, fatty fish, and eggs are excellent food source for Vitamin D. It is difficult to get sufficient vitamin D from food, which makes it necessary to have vitamin D supplements. Since the skin uses the sun's rays to produce vitamin D, limited sun exposure is recommended. Exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays intensifies the pigment changes causing skin darkening in pregnant women. Thus, most doctors endorse that pregnant women protect themselves from the sun and get their vitamin D from supplements. The average prenatal vitamin contains 400 IU of vitamin D, which makes it imperative that additional supplements should be taken. The significant compounds for human development are D2 and D3. The best way to really ensure adequate vitamin D is through simple supplementation. Ergocalciferol is the vegetarian form of vitamin D, whereas cholecalciferol is the animal-sourced form, derived from fish liver oil or lanolin from sheep.

We are planning for Baby please suggest that when we should intercourse my periods ends on 20 july.
Dr. Manisha is right. The first day of periods is counted as the day 1 and ovulation is the best time for conception. Another important aspect is to be stress free. Anxiety works against conception. For how many years have you been married and living together? if this is the first time you are planning then its fine. Otherwise some tests may have to be conducted. Do get back with any further query. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user as you said that your misses is suffering from the ovarian cyst. It could be due to hormonal imbalancein females during puberty time and during menopausal time .and shows marginal calcification which we call it as a hardening of the cyst. So with the help of homoeopathic treatment. With out any side effects we will dissolve the cyst completely only by intake of oral medicines with out any surgery.

Aap i-know ovulation test strip medical store se kharide aur agar aapki menstrual cycle 28 days k hai toh aap bleeding ka first day samje aur fir 11th day par apna urine check karna chaalu kar sakti hai aur daily 12.30 pm bhaje kare aur test har din kijiye jab tak results positive aata hai. Aur jis din positive aayega aap ek din k baad paanch din tak sex karna chaalu kar sakte hai.
