Urinary Incontinence - Why It Happens During Pregnancy?

Urinary Incontinence - Why It Happens During Pregnancy?

Pregnancy is definitely the most wonderful period in a woman’s life. It has its won bliss and hazards as well. To gain something, you need to bear the pain. There are a plenty of conditions that come as side effects of pregnancy. The experiences may vary from woman to woman. Thus, urinary incontinence is a condition that is experienced by some women. It is a medical term to refer to the involuntary loss of urine during pregnancy. This might be sometimes mild in nature. Pregnant women may experience this condition quite frequently. It may even last after pregnancy or disappear soon after childbirth. It may also occur to women in their late 40s, as they develop bladder problem with age.

Causes of Urinary incontinence in women during pregnancy: Researchers believe that the urinary incontinence in pregnancy is caused due to stress on the urinary bladder. This is called stress incontinence. It happens as extra pressure is put on the urinary bladder. The sphincter muscles in the bladder don’t work well to hold the urine during pregnancy. Another reason behind this condition is an overactive bladder. Women usually don’t posses an overactive bladder. They are known to have controlled spasms. Sometimes, the urethra or the tube carrying urine may also be the cause of urinary incontinence in pregnancy. The tube is infected or affected to give birth to this condition.

It has also been seen that the sphincter muscles get stressed in pregnancy. The urinary bladder exerts pressure on the sphincter muscles and in the pelvic region. This may lead to leakage of urine. The condition is such that urine may leak out even at the slightest movement like sneezing or coughing by the pregnant lady.

Incontinence may continue even after childbirth as the entire pregnancy puts enormous pressure on your pelvic region. As a result of which, the muscles in the pelvic region become weak. The condition leads to overactive bladder. The condition may also arise due to the following reasons:
1. The nerve cells that regulate the functioning of the bladder got damaged.
2. The urethra and the urinary bladder may have got shifted from their original position during pregnancy
3. Episiotomy in the pelvic region.

How to avoid pregnancy incontinence?
You should not panic about urinary incontinence. You have ways to deal with this issue. You can schedule your bathroom breaks to avoid stress and embarrassment. Moreover, you can practice kegel exercises to keep your pelvic region healthy and strong. Try to keep a check on your body weight prior to planning a pregnancy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

You should follow these very important and simple things to prevent stone formation & to get sure treatment of kidney stones: 1. First take a lot of fluid daily. The more you drink water and fluid, the less amount of deposit accumulate in kidney. So you have to make your kidneys healthy just only by drinking 2-3 liters (10-12 glasses) of water. 2. Stones are mainly formed of calcium and oxalate. So take very low quantity of milk, cheese, cream and dairy products. 3. Do not take strawberry, plum, spinach and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in oxalate. So avoid them to prevent from kidney stones. 3. Stop taking supplementary vitamin d and calcium medication. 4. Avoid animal protein diet- eggs, red meat, fish in diet. 5. Take less amount of salt, pickle and western foods. They have high amount of sodium. So avoid it. 6. Urinary infection are also one of the cause of stone. So take proper antibiotic treatment of urinary infection on time. Even when you feelburning sensation or pain during urination, don't avoid it. Take medication as soon as possible. I hope you follow them in your life andstay healthy. 7. You can take gokshur tablets of himalaya for 3 months. It definitely get relief from kidney stones.

Tips for removing kidney stones: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5.

How to remove stones in kidney. Can it be removed permanent or not? please tell me, ayurvedic treatment.
what are the size of the stones? stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive procedures. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) registered dietitian who will also prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

If creatinine is 7.5 and doctor is suggesting dialysis should we go for dialysis? I have heard if you start dialysis once it will be difficult to stop and each time you have to go for dialysis if creatinine increases to 7. Ankle is swollen and some times vomit happen. I am scared of dialysis. How can you reduce creatinine.

Renal failure is two types. Acute: recently, due to some reversible cause creatinine is increased. Chronic: over months to years creatinine is increased and irreversible. In first case (Acute renal failure) kidney damage is temporary and may require few dialysis only. In others case (chronic renal failure): kidney damage is permanent. Regular permanent Dialysis or kidney transplant is the answer. As you have symptoms you need to start dialysis as early as possible and then continuation depends on type of renal failure you have. Your fear is common and We do see many patients and take alternative medicines. They come back to us with much more serious condition and poor outcome. Choice is yours!

Do you have burning urination and what about epithelial cells in urine. In males pus cell should be zero. I think there is a mild infection go for urine culture wd out having any antibiotics prior to test after that it can be confirmed if your having infection or not.

My problem is I am going too much time toilet on a day give me a suggestion what can I do.
Spending toomuch time in toilet is the indication of improper digestion, excretion. I. E. Constipation. Try to take more water. Like 3-4 litres minimum/day. If you drink 1/2-1 litre of water in morming with emoty stomach, then its very good pressure builder& good in general also. Take more fruits. Not filtered juices, try to take with ulp, & wherever possible with external layers also. Take more fibre rich contents like, whole wheat, hand pounded rice, green leafy veg, veg salads, oats, sprouts, daily do exercises regularly without fail, as the movement is mandatory for internal organs.
