C-Section Vs Normal Delivery - Which One Is Better?

Many people across the world spend a considerable amount of time contemplating on which type of delivery is the most preferable. In earlier times, normal delivery was the only option but these days, there is an increase in the number of caesarean or C-sections. Today, 30% of children of children around the world have been born through the C-section. Since it is up to the woman to select which type of delivery she would prefer, it is imperative to comprehend the advantages as well as risks of both the options.

Advantages of vaginal delivery to the mother
From a psychological point of view, women who opt for normal delivery are believed to have a relatively positive birthing experience. Women who go through normal delivery often feel that it is empowering to be actively involved in the procedure of giving birth to their babies. Such mothers have a much shorter span of recovery time compared with those opting for C-sections. This procedure also lets the mother as well as the baby to come in contact with each other, which in turn speeds up the process of bonding.

Pros of normal delivery for the baby
It has been found that babies who are born via vaginal delivery are less prone to developing any kind of complications related to health. They can be fed, sooner and develop fewer allergies and respiratory issues. However, very few babies born through vaginal delivery can experience any injury while being born, though this is an extremely rare condition.

Benefits of Caesarean section for the mother
There are numerous women who opt for the C-section so that there is no need to go through extended hours of labour. Today, with the advancement in medical science, mothers are able to plan the birth of their child, and it allows more control over the birthing process along with more predictability. Women who go for a C-section do not suffer from any damage to the pelvic floor, which often leads to incontinence in the course of time.

Advantages of a C-section delivery for the child
In most cases, when there are twin babies, or a single baby is too large, opting for a C- section can prove to be the most viable option. Plus, if the mother is a carrier of certain diseases like HIV, then a C-section reduces the chances of passing it to the baby.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Sitting for Too Long - Do You Know It Can Act As A Slow Poison?

Sitting for Too Long - Do You Know It Can Act As A Slow Poison?

Although this might come as bit of a shock for most of you, the habit of sitting, acquired or inherent can lead to a lot of physical complications. Even with adequate exercise, the practice or compulsion to sit for too long, more than six hours at a stretch to be scientifically precise, can prove to be fatal. Or in a sense, it can at least have a detrimental effect on your life span.

Studies have revealed that sitting in front of the television for an hour if you’re above 25, can lessen your life expectancy by 22 minutes. The process might take effect sooner than you think, with the development of myriad complications such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, various forms of cancer, digestive problems and other orthopedic disorders of the waist and backbone. This becomes precarious, especially for those affiliated to professions that facilitate no mobility or those leading a sedentary lifestyle by choice.

If you are engaged in a desk job which involves a lot of sitting around for long hours, you should be worried about the ills that come along with it. Besides ophthalmological disorders, obesity, painful and stiff joints, sitting can also induce further serious problems involving the heart. To avoid this, make sure you take regular breaks to get up and walk at regular intervals, a little bit of neck and stretching exercises that is affordable in the given space. Avoid sitting on your rear for more than half of the day at all costs.

Standing in a fully upright posture burns a lot of calories, so even simply standing after a period of prolonged sitting can prove beneficial. For instance, it is advisable to watch the last ten minutes of a show or match standing up. Evening walks and morning walks are a good practice to lessen the amount of time spent on the chair. Regular and habitual jogging or running regimens help in getting you out of the infamous couch potato syndrome. Make sure you sit in a correct and erect posture while working on the computer or watching the television. Avoid long hours of prolonged sitting in front of these devices at home, especially if you are already compelled to do so at office.

Kya Hote Hain Leptospirosis Ke Lakshan, Janne ke Liye Padhe - क्या होते है लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस के लक्षण, जानने के लिए पढ़े!

आजकल हम में से काफी सारे लोग अपने घर में जानवर पालना या कहे रखना पसंद करते हैं. जिसमें से कई लोग अपने शौक के लिए जानवरो को रखते है, तो गाँव देहात में लोग अपने व्यव्यसाय के लिए पशु पालन करते है. जानवरों के साथ कई सामान्य समस्या भी आती है, जिसके लिए उनकी अतिरिक्त देखभाल करनी पड़ती है.  खासकर, मानसून जैसे महीने में जब बारिश के कारण इन्फेक्शन फैलने का डर सामान्य से अधिक होता है. ऐसे ही एक बीमारी है लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस, जो मनुष्यों और पशुओं को प्रभावित करती है. यह एक जीवाणु रोग है, जो जानवरों के माध्यम से फैलता है. इसलिए यह जरुरी है कि आप लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस के लक्षण के बारे में पूरी जानकारी रखें. लेकिन उससे पहले जानें लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस के कारण जो इस प्रकार है -

लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस के कारण 

लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस मुख्य रूप से जानवरों के माध्यम से फैलता है. यह एक बैक्टेरियल रोग है, जो लेप्टोस्पिरा जीनस बैक्टीरिया के कारण होता है. ये संक्रमित जानवर के मूत्र से फैलता है. संक्रमित जानवरो की मूत्र में लेप्टोस्पायर्स बैक्टीरिया होते है, जो पानी में मिल जाते है. यह व्यक्ति के आँख, मुंह या नाक के संपर्क में आने पर फैलता है. मानसून के महीने में यह अत्यधिक तेजी से फैलता है, क्योंकि इस समय चूँहों की संख्या बढ़ जाती है. इससे बैक्टीरियल इन्फेक्शन का प्रसार आसान हो जाता हैं. इसके अलावा, दूषित पानी भी एक कारण है. लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस रोग की चपेट में आने का जोखिम अधिक हो जाता है. 

लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस के लक्षण 

लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस के लक्षण भी सामान्य बीमारी की तरह होते है. परंतु उचित उपचार नहीं किए जाने पर यह गंभीर समस्या भी बन सकता है. अगर सही समय पर उपचार नहीं किया जाता है, तो किडनी को नुकसान और लिवर की विफलता जैसी गंभीर जटिलताओं का सामना करना पड़ सकता है. इसलिए इसके लक्षणों को कभी भी अनदेखा नहीं करना चाहिए. 

लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस के लक्षण निम्नलिखित है -

1. तेज बुखार - रोगी को तेज़ बुखार का अनुभव होने लगता है.
2. सिरदर्द - लक्षणों में सिरदर्द होना भी आम होता है, इसलिए अपने आस-पास साफ-सफाई रखना जरूरी है.
3. ठण्ड - यह सबसे आम लक्षणों में से एक है.
4.  मांशपेशीयों में दर्द - इसके इन्फेक्शन से रोगी को मांसपेशीयों में दर्द का अनुभव होता है. 
4. उल्टी - संक्रमण के कारण उल्टी होना भी बहुत आम है.
5. पीलिया - पीड़ित को पीलिया भी हो सकता है.
6. आँखों का लाल होना - अगर ऐसा कोर्ई लक्षण दिखे तो डॉक्टर से तुरंत संपर्क करें.
7. पेट दर्द - लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस के लक्षण की बात करें तो यह सामान्य लक्षणों में एक है.
8. दस्त - ऐसा होने पर तुरंत चिकित्सक से मिलें.
9. खांसी में खून आना इत्यादि लैप्टोस्पायरोसिस के कारण और प्रमुख लक्षणों का हिस्सा है. ऐसे में कोई भी लापरवाही न बरतें.

यह कोई गंभीर बीमारी नहीं है, लेकिन इससे दूर रहने के लिए कुछ बातों का ख्याल रखना बहुत महत्वपूर्ण हो जाता है. इस बीमारी से बचाव के लिए सबसे बेहतर तरीका है कि जानवरों से कुछ दूरी बनाकर रखी जाए. यदि आप उपरोक्त किसी भी लक्षण का अनुभव करते हैं, तो अपने नजदीकी डॉक्टर से जांच जरूर करवाएं.

1 ml semen me crores of sperms hote hai. Usme se 1 sperm kaise bhi krke apke oocyte tak pahuch gya to pregnancy ho skti hai. Agar 1 sperm bhi travel krke upr tak pahuch gya in case to pregnancy ho skti hai.
