How Many Ultrasounds Do You Need During Pregnancy?

Hello, mera naam Dr Sujata Agarwal hai, mein MBBS MD Gyaene hoon, obtsetrology mein mera diploma kiya hua hai, main Sarita Vihar, Badarpur aur Apollo hospital mein practice karti hoon. Main aap logo ko pregnancy aur usse related ultrasound ke baare me batana chahungi, agar aap log mujhe dikha na chahte hain ya consult karana chahe toh aap mera number Lybrate se le sakte hain. Pregnancy aur ultrasound aajkal dono ek doosre ke saath bilkul mil rahe hain, main aim hamara pregnancy mein ultrasound karne ka ye hota hai, ki bache ki growth theek ho aur baccha us samay deliver karaya jaaye jab woh safe ho, koi complication ho toh hum usko pata karle, bache ke andar kisi bhi tarah ka defect ho to usko pata karle. Kuch logon ka iss tarah se myth hota hai ki ultrasound jo hai bahut jyada karana pregnancy mein safe nahi hai, lekin yeh bilkul galat hai dharna hai. Ultrasound ek tarah ka different mechanism hai jisme sound waves bache ke andar ja ke reflect hoke wapas machine mein aati hain, isme Koi x-ray ya koi aur tarike radiation nahi hai jo bacche ki growth pe ya uski kisi development pe problem kare. Isliye pregnancy me ultrasound bhale hi doh ho, dus ho, bees ho depending upon our requirement woh bilkul hi safe hote hain. Jo pehla ultrasound hum karte hain wo do se teen mahine ke beech mein karte hain yeh janane ke liye ki kaee baar twin pregnancy hoti hai, triplet pregnancy hoti hai, ke number of foetuses kitne hain. To know number of foetuses No.1, No. 2 bacche ko hum naap ke uski age pata laga sakte hain aur usse delivery ki date hum confirm karte hain aur teesra bacche ki heartbeat dekh ke hum bata sakte hain ki bacche ke andar koi missed abortion hai ya koi cruel problem nahi hai. Toh pehla ultrasound hota hai dating viability scan between 2 to 3 week preferably 8 weeks mein, second ultrasound humlog usko NT scan bolte hain 11 to 30 weeks me kiya jata hai. Iss ultrasound baccha pura bann chukka hota hai, uske charo haath pair bann chuke dekhte hain uske sar ki mainly, sar k i haddi bani hai ki nahi skull bone woh nazar aati hai kabhi kabhi kuch defects ho bacche ka skull nahi bana hota hai. Waise anal carefree baby ko hum early diagnose kar sakte hain. Teesra bache ke neck ki bone ko major karte hain jo main anteen hota hai aur uski thickness se hum bata sakte hain ki bacche mein koi development chromosomal defect hai ya nahi hai. Agar anteen normal se jyada hoga toh phir hame aage janch karne ki jarurat hogi kyunki usme bache ka defective hone ka risk badd jata hai. Uske alawa bache ka hame bacche ka stomach, urinary bladder, bacche ka heart care flow, ductors flow aur ek basic heart ka structure hame dikh jata hai aur hum ye bata sakte hain ki bacche mein basic koi defect nahi hai, yeah 11 to 13 weeks Mein NT scan hota hai. Iske baad mein jo sabse important ultrasound hai woh 4 se 5 mahine ke beech mein hota hai preferably 18 to 19 weeks mein 20 weeks se pahle hame dekh lena hota hai ki bache ke andar kisi bhi tarah ka koi defect nahi hai. Toh 20 weeks ke baad agar bachche defective bhi hai toh bhi abortion karne ke liye Supreme Court ke paas ja ke unse hame permission leni padti hai. MTP act mein sirf 20 weeks tak hi hum log agar defective baby ho toh terminate kar sakte hain. Toh 18 to 19 weeks mein baby jo hai pura develop ho chuka hota hai, uski puri body, brain, skull, heart, kidney, hath, pair har tarah ki cheeze hume dikh jati hain aur hum confidently bol sakte hain ki bacch bilkul safe hai aur aap pregnancy aram se continue kariye. In 18 to 19 weeks jisko hum anomaly scan bolte hain, uske baad jo next ultrasound hai wo patient to patient requirement pe depend karta hai. Normally ye around 30 to 34 weeks pe karte hain aur isko coloured optical scanning bolte hain. Isme hum bache ke sare brain, heart or uske alag alag naso me blood ka Prabhav dekhte hain aur usse hame pata chal jata hai ki bacche ki growth jo hai thik hai ke nahi hai, uterus ki arteries mein blood flow dekhte hain usse pata chal jata hai ki high BP hone ka risk hai ki nahi pregnancy ke samay. Aur jin baccho mein growth retardation hota hai, unka phir hum doh doh hafte pe serials scan karke dekhte hain ki growth ho rahi hai ki nahi ho rahi hai aur agar hame lagta hai ki baby bahut jyada week hai aur pait mein uski maa ke andar uterus mein dala jata hai isliye hum timely delivery plan kar sakte hain ultrasound ke dwara. Toh is tarah se ultrasound pregnancy mein bahut hi safe hai, isko karane mein koi hichak nahi honi chahiye. Deliveries ki requirement ho aur aapke doctor suggest kare, toh usko bina kisi darr ke karaiye, uska koi side effect nahi hai. Thank you so much agar aap logon ko mujhse kabhi kuch scan karana ho ya milna ho toh aap mere se appointment le sakte hain.

Healthy Pregnancy - 7 Tips You Must Follow For It!

Healthy Pregnancy - 7 Tips You Must Follow For It!

Pregnancy is that phase in a woman’s life where she has to take care of not only herself, but also the bundle of joy growing inside her body. Pregnancy gestation in humans is a total of nine months. These nine months the to-be mother has to be extra careful in all ways possible. At times, some complications may arise during this time. It is not possible to say that these complications can be avoided but at least precautions can be taken to live a healthy life during these nine months.

Here are some tips to follow during your pregnancy period for a healthy delivery.

  1. Smoking is a strict no-no during pregnancy. Due to mothers who smoke, the baby can be delivered prematurely or have a low birth weight. At times, mothers think that babies with low weight are easier to deliver. But it causes additional complications in the child and the mother after delivery.
  2. Proper balanced diet should be followed. According to age-old customs, to be mothers are asked to eat for two people. But that is not so. A mother needs a few extra calories which should be consumed through fruits and vegetables and not by eating chocolates or junk food. Also, water intake should be doubled to avoid constipation.
  3. Alcohol is deemed as poison for the baby growing inside you. Thus, it should be completely avoided by pregnant women.
  4. Additional vitamin and protein supplements in the form of tonics, capsules or even milk supplements can be consumed. These would give the necessary nutrition the body needs but is unable to get from the balanced diet.
  5. It is a myth when to-be mothers are asked to rest completely during their gestation period. Adequate rest is compulsory for pregnant mothers but working or exercising is equally important. Thus, to be mothers should keep themselves busy for at least thirty minutes per day with some simple exercises.
  6. During the early stages of pregnancy exposure to toxic materials like paints, new carpets etc should be avoided. Toxic chemicals may enter the body of the mother and cause severe damage to the growth of the child, particularly the brain.
  7. Pregnancy, especially for the first time, can be stressful for the women. They should turn to focusing their free time to simple therapies and hobbies in order to reduce their stress.

Thus, these are seven simple steps to have a healthy pregnancy leading to a proper delivery of your newborn baby.

Rectocele - The Most Common Reasons Behind It!

Rectocele - The Most Common Reasons Behind It!

Also known as Posterior Prolapse, Rectocele involves weakening of the walls between vagina and rectum, thereby, causing the rectal wall to swell and protrude into the space of the vagina. This bulging is a common, but temporary problem that arises after childbirth. In severe cases, the swollen tissues may extend out of the vaginal opening and usually cause more discomfort than pain.

What are the most common causes of Rectocele?

  1. An upright posture places a lot of weight on the pelvic region, which is probably the most important cause for Rectocele or Posterior Prolapse.
  2. Constipation is also a very valid reason for Rectocele because it causes straining of the connective tissues that separate the vagina and the rectum.
  3. Constant heavy lifting and indiscriminate increase of body weight may also put a lot of pressure on the pelvic region that could ultimately lead to weakening of rectal and vaginal tissues.
  4. Weakening of vaginal passageway due to pregnancy and childbirth is also a common reason for Rectocele development.
  5. Chances of developing Posterior Prolapse increases with age.

Physiological problems posed due to Rectocele:

  1. Passage of bowel becomes difficult and may sometimes require pressure on the vaginal bulge.
  2. The protrusion of tissue takes place from your vaginal opening, when you strain while passing bowel. This usually happens in people with constipation.
  3. This disorder may also induce a sensation that the bowel tract has not been fully emptied even after passing stool.
  4. Such vaginal bulging also causes difficulties and embarrassing concerns during sexual intercourse.

Medical recommendations and preventive measures to tackle Rectocele:

  1. Home made remedies and exercise are usually effective. Performing exercises help re tighten the pelvic muscles and tissues, thus reversing the effects of Rectocele. Vaginal pessaries or rubber rings, inserted into the vagina, can also support loose tissues and keep them in place.
  2. Surgical procedures are hardly needed in most cases of Rectocele. But if the issue is chronic, you may opt for removing the protruding tissues by surgery or strengthen the boundary between vagina and rectum by a mesh patch.

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

5 Most Common Gynaecology Problems!

5 Most Common Gynaecology Problems!

Almost every woman suffers from a gynecological problem at some point or the other. In most cases these disorders are mild and easily treatable, but some gynecological problems can have serious implications and affect their fertility and quality of life.

Here are the five most common gynecological problems faced by women.

  1. Dysmenorrhea: Abdominal cramps and back aches are common side effects of menstruation but some women can suffer from excruciating pain during their menstrual cycles. This is known as dysmenorrheal. This is caused by a decreased supply of oxygen to the uterus due to strong contractions in the uterus. These cramps become less painful as a woman ages and in most cases is resolved by childbirth. Symptoms of this disorder include excruciating abdominal pain, pain in the lower back, inner thighs and hips, nausea and loose stools.
  2. Ovarian Cysts: Ovarian cysts can be big or small and many women live with cysts without being aware of it. These cysts can be described as fluid filled sac like structures that develop around and on the ovary which vary in terms of size and type. Ovarian cysts may or may not be tumors. Cysts can be a result of the growth of a follicle or the breaking down of tissue within the ovaries. In most cases, these cysts dissolve on their own but they should be monitored carefully.
  3. Endometriosis: This is a condition where the uterine tissue grows outside the walls of the uterus. This occurs commonly on the ovaries and fallopian tubes but can also develop on the cervix, bladder, bowel or rectum. The exact cause of endometriosis is unknown. Some theories suggest that it is triggered by retrograde menstruation or the backward flow of menstrual blood into the fallopian tubes. The symptoms of this condition include abdominal cramps, pain during intercourse and bowel movements, bleeding between periods and digestive problems.
  4. Poly Cyst Ovarian Disease (PCOD): PCOD is a condition where the ovaries produce follicles that develop into cysts instead of eggs. This leads to a lack of viable eggs and thus affects a woman’s fertility. This can also cause mood swings and depression. PCOD is triggered by hormone changes and exhibits symptoms such as irregular periods, acne, hair loss and breathing problems while sleeping.
  5. Urinary Tract Infection (UTI): UTIs are usually caused by bacterial infections and can be triggered by pregnancy, frequent intercourse, diabetes and as a side effect of certain types of medication. The symptoms of this condition include stinging and burning sensations while urinating, abdominal cramps, painful intercourse and an increased urge to urinate frequently.

Screening For Chromosomal Abnormalities In First Trimester - Why It Is Important?

Screening For Chromosomal Abnormalities In First Trimester - Why It Is Important?

First-trimester screening is a prenatal test. It is conducted to get early information about a baby's risk of certain chromosomal conditions. It can detect conditions like Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and extra sequences of chromosome 18 (Trisomy 18).

It is usually conducted in two steps:

  1. Blood test
  2. Followed by USG

Initially, a blood test is conducted to ascertain the levels of two pregnancy specific substances in the mother's blood. The blood is tested for pregnancy associated plasma protein and human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). Thereafter, a USG is done to find out the size of the clear space in the tissue that is present at the back of the foetus’s neck.

The screening is done between weeks 11 and 14 of pregnancy. The doctor is able to gauge the risk of your baby having Down syndrome or Trisomy 18 by using your age and results of the test. This screening is quite helpful and can guard you against deadly consequences in the future. Down syndrome is known to cause impairments in the mental and social development of the child. Trisomy 18 gets often fatal by age 1. However, first screening doesn’t find out the risk of neural tube defects.

It is the first screening done in pregnancy. It can be done before any other screening. Thus, the results are known at an early stage. You will get time to think about the future consequences can help you in deciding your course of action and the decision to either continue or terminate the pregnancy. You will be ready to know and decide whether you will be able to live and take care of a baby with special needs. You can conduct other screenings later in pregnancy. You must know that first-trimester screening is treated as being optional. It can detect the risk and cannot tell you whether your baby has the problems in real or not.

Often women get worried about the test and it’s after effects. However, there is no need to worry. It will not harm your pregnancy. The foetus remains untouched and safe during the screening. It will not lead to any miscarriage or any other complication.

A practitioner will collect your blood by inserting a needle into your veins. The blood is then sent for testing to the lab. You can resume your usual daily activities. The ultrasound will need you to lie on your back on a table and the technician will put a transducer on your abdomen. The sound waves will be changed into digital images that the technician will refer to. You can get back to your normal routine as soon as the test is over.

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

Placenta Previa - Understanding It In Detail!

Placenta Previa - Understanding It In Detail!

The placenta is a rich vascular tissue seen in the inner wall of the uterus. It provides nutrition to the growing baby through the umbilical cord. It also helps in removal of wastes from the developing baby. The placenta is usually present on the upper part of the uterus and grows during pregnancy in size and vascularity.

However, if this placenta is towards the lower portion near the cervix, it is known as previa, meaning prolapse. This could happen during the third trimester of pregnancy. There are chances that it will block the cervix, which is the opening of the uterus into the birth canal. This may hinder normal delivery and can be one of the reasons necessitating cesarean section. As the baby tries to push through the placenta, the highly vascular placenta can tear and cause significant bleeding. It can be a big risk to both the mother and the baby.

Occurrence
Placenta previa is quite common and can happen for every 1 in 200 pregnancies. Though what causes it is not very clear, some of the predisposing factors include the following:

  1. Advanced maternal age (35 or more)
  2. Smoking mothers
  3. Have had children
  4. History of C-section
  5. Carrying twins or triplets
  6. History of uterine surgeries

Types
There could be complete previa or total previa.

  1. If the placenta is in the lower portion of the uterus, but not close to the cervix, with about 2 cm distance between the cervix and the placenta tip, it is termed as low-lying placenta.
  2. If the placenta sits on the border of the cervix, but does not cover the opening, it is partial or marginal previa.
  3. When it is in the lower portion and completely covers the cervix, it is complete previa.

Testing
Placental position is monitored throughout pregnancy, and by the second trimester, the doctor can suspect potential previa. Though the placenta may be in the lower half of the uterus during the first trimester, it usually moves up towards the end of the second trimester. If it does not, then the doctor might request for periodic testing to ensure it is in place.

Management

  1. Fresh bleeding during the third trimester is indicative of previa. Managing previa depends on how far you are into the pregnancy and how severe the bleeding is.
  2. If it is minimal, then only observation will suffice. Bed rest with no intercourse, no pelvic exams, and limited travelling is recommended.
  3. If the previa is confirmed and there is no bleeding, a C-section will be scheduled at 37 weeks.
  4. If delivery cannot wait, then the baby will be immediately delivered at the end of 34 weeks, post which the baby and mother will be kept under observation. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
