The patient you are talked about is sensitive mentally as well as physically. She is an introverted lady and her emotions leads to mental restlessness. She keeps on thinking about her pregnancy and some other things. If the above statement I made about her is true then make it a point do not go for any medication for vomiting only two things are helpful for her 1. Couselling 2. Homoeopathic medication.

6 Sure Shot Ways of Birth Control

6 Sure Shot Ways of Birth Control

Birth control is a method by which unwanted pregnancy is prevented. Partners can plan their childbearing in a better way using the increased levels of awareness about birth control.
 
Methods of birth control:

  1. Intrauterine devices (IDUs): These are most effective methods of birth control. The intrauterine device (IUD) is a long-acting and reversible form of contraception for women. It is of two types: Copper IUD (contains copper) and Hormone-releasing IUDs (progestin hormone is released into the womb slowly). It is a small device that is fitted inside the womb and it provides contraception by preventing fertilization of the egg.
  2. Sterilization: This is a process of birth control that renders a woman incapable of conception or a man incapable of sperm delivery. The process is conducted with the consent of the individual and can be done using either surgical or non-surgical methods. In both the cases, tubes carrying sperms (in males) and fallopian tubes (females) are either cut or blocked.
  3. Condoms: These are the most commonly used measures for birth control. Male and female condoms act as barriers and prevent the sperm from reaching the uterus.
  4. Oral contraceptive pills: These pills are the most popular measures of birth control used by women across the world. This is the most convenient way of postponing pregnancy. However, it is very important that the side effects of the contraceptive pills be noted. The side effects cause changes in the body, such as irregular bleeding, increase in the breast's size increased levels of blood pressure as well as eventual infertility.
  5. Contraceptive Injections: In this method, one hormone injection is administered, the effects of which last inside the body for a time period of 8 to 12 weeks i.e. 2-3 months. The contraceptive injection has the similar effects as that of contraceptive pills on birth control. Evidently, the shot is irreversible, which makes the woman infertile for a period of three months. However, similar to the pill, protection from STDs is not offered by contraceptive injections. But these injections can guarantee 99% safety and surety on being used.
  6. Natural Family Planning: Even though it is not any external pill or device, Natural Family Planning is also a method of birth control. It relies on the knowledge of timings of the menstrual cycle (periods) so that the couple can avoid sex during the time period when the woman is fertile. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Importance of Oral Hygiene Pre-Pregnancy and for Expecting Mothers

Importance of Oral Hygiene Pre-Pregnancy and for Expecting Mothers

Maintaining proper oral health is very essential for everyone but it becomes more important for women who are planning to conceive or are pregnant. Studies reveal that if a woman is suffering from gum disease, the chances of the baby being born prematurely or having inadequate weight increase.

Moreover, the alteration in the levels of the hormone in the body caused due to pregnancy might also trigger gum disease and a condition known as pregnancy gingivitis, which makes taking care of oral hygiene mandatory for expecting mothers.

How can you ensure proper oral hygiene before conceiving?
Visiting a dentist before conceiving is necessary to diagnose and treat any issues related to oral health, so that it doesn't affect the health of the baby in any way. During this visit, you can opt for professional cleaning of your teeth and proper scrutiny of your gum tissue to detect any oral health issues, which might influence your pregnancy.

How can you maintain proper oral health during pregnancy?
You can take the following measures to ensure that your teeth and gums remain healthy during pregnancy.

  • Visit your dentist regularly - Pregnancy should not keep you from going for regular dental checkups. The dentist can conduct the requisite periodontal exams and provide you instructions for maintaining healthy gums and teeth during this period.
  • Inform your dentist about the drugs you are consuming - Letting your dentist know about all the medications you are consuming and their dosages is advisable so that he/she can accordingly design your dental treatment plan.
  • Don't avoid dental X-rays - If you need a dental X-ray, you can opt for it even while you are pregnant. Informing your dentist about your pregnancy will ensure that, he/she takes extra measures for your and the baby's safety by protecting your thyroid gland and abdomen from the rays.
  • Consider morning sickness while choosing your toothpaste - Morning sickness often hinders with the normal process of brushing due to the taste of the toothpaste. In this case, asking your dentist to recommend a suitable brand for you would be the right thing to do.
  • Ensure that you follow a healthy diet - Following a diet which contains a minimum amount of sugary snacks and more dairy products like yogurt and cheese is recommended for expecting mothers. This not only decreases the risks of tooth decay but also ensures proper development of the baby's gums, bones, and teeth.

Hi usually pregnancy related vomiting is very uncommon at this time of gestation, if happens __ 1- go for prenatal examination, if already not doing so 2- get your blood test done especially liver function tests 3- eat small, frequent meals as empty stomach can increase nausea 4- take vitamin b6 twice daily 5- stop taking iron tables as it causes gastritis so increases vomiting. You can start again once problem settle. 6- avoid rich, spicy & fried foods 7- drink plenty of fluids eg lemon water. Green tea, fresh juice & lassi but no to aerated drinks 8- keep bland snacks handy e. G. Biscuits and eat throughout the day. Lastly take proper physical & mental rest. Always remember all this happen because of your baby. This will give you strong will power to fight it back.

Hello, by lamp you are 7 weeks and 4 days, but with usg 5weeks a+ 6 days, so ideally the heart beat in the foetus arrives by 6-7 weeks and hence next scan would be necessary. However the present spotting can be controlled with progesterones and complete bed rest for 48-72 hrs. Avoid moving around much. If the heart beat doesnt arrive by next scan tehn it shall be termed as a missed abortion. Regards.

Hello, These are not the signs of hymen break, and might be due to shredding of vaginal mucus plugs due to the gravitational force during zumba dance. There is nothing to worry about regarding your virginity issues.
