High blood pressure in Pregnancy (PIH) - What To Expect

High blood pressure in Pregnancy (PIH) - What To Expect

Pregnancy and high blood pressure isn’t as deadly a combination as feared by many. A blood pressure that is equal to or more than 140/90 mm of Hg is considered to be high and abnormal. While hypertension requires close monitoring, here is what every pregnant woman must know about this condition.

What are the different types of high blood pressure that can occur during pregnancy?

  1. Gestational hypertension: Women suffering from this condition typically suffer from high blood pressure after the 20th week of pregnancy. While in most of the cases, no protein or signs of organ damage are detected, many women might develop a condition known as the preeclampsia.
  2. Chronic hypertension: This is a condition that occurs at least 20 weeks before the pregnancy. This is a little hard to detect since there are no symptoms attached to this condition.
  3. Chronic hypertension and superimposed preeclampsia: This is a condition that is often seen in women with chronic hypertension. It typically befalls before the pregnancy and is characterized by high protein in the urine. Typically, a pregnancy of this type has delivery-related complications.
  4. Preeclampsia: This condition occurs 20 weeks after the pregnancy. It is often associated with complications involving other organs such as liver, kidneys, brain, and blood. If this goes untreated, it can prove fatal for the mother and the unborn baby.

Why is high blood pressure an unwanted problem?

  1. Reduced blood flow to the placenta: If the placenta doesn’t receive adequate blood, the baby receives less food and oxygen. It can lead to premature birth, slow growth, and low birth weight. Premature birth can lead to infection of the baby and breathing problems.
  2. Placental abruption: This is a condition where the placenta gets separated from the inner lining of the uterus before the delivery happens. Abruption can cause heavy bleeding leading to life-threatening condition both for the mother and the baby.
  3. Injury to other organs: If the hypertension is not tackled well, it may lead to injury of the lungs, heart, liver, kidney and many other organs. In many cases, it could prove to be life-threatening as well.
  4. Premature delivery: In case of high blood pressure, a doctor might take a call for an early delivery to avoid the risk of unnecessary complications.

What are the signs and symptoms to develop this condition?

  1. Pain in the kidney or excessive protein in the urine.
  2. Vomiting and nausea.
  3. Problems in vision including but not related to blurred vision, temporary loss of vision and light sensitivity.
  4. Limited liver function.
  5. Fluid accumulation in the lungs resulting in shortness of breath.
  6. Frequent and long stretches of headaches.
  7. Pain in the upper abdomen especially on the right side, under the rib.

Dangerous Side-effects of i-Pill Every Woman Must Know!!

Dangerous Side-effects of i-Pill Every Woman Must Know!!

Though pregnancy is one of the most cherished phases in a woman’s life, there are times when it is not desired. This can be due to various reasons ranging from premarital sex to the couple not being ready yet. Whatever the reason, emergency contraceptive measures are available, and I-Pill has become synonymous with that.

Since its introduction, it is widely used to prevent unwanted pregnancies. The easy availability (no prescription required) and low cost have added to its popularity. However, not many realize it has some side-effects and the need to be aware of certain facts when using the I-pill.

  1. It is an emergency contraceptive pill, should be used between 24 to 72 hours after unprotected sex
  2. It is effective in 95% of the women when taking during this time frame
  3. It prevents pregnancy by stopping fertilisation or preventing implantation of the fertilising egg
  4. It stops pregnancy; however, if you conceive before the pill it was taken, it will not have any effect. It is therefore not an abortion pill
  5. So, if you miss the period the next month, test for pregnancy
  6. It does not offer protection against sexually transmitted disease including HIV/AIDS
  7. It is not to be used on a regular basis
  8. If you are on long-term medication, please consult with the doctor before taking the I-pill
  9. It has no long-term consequence. However, there could be some minor symptoms including breast tenderness, nausea, vomiting, headache, and lower abdominal pain (pelvic area),
  10. The next menstrual cycle could be delayed by a couple of days
  11. There could also be spotting before the actual period starts
  12. Women who are allergic to levonorgestrel should not take I-pill.
  13. It can cause skin allergies and reduce libido.
  14. When used repeatedly, it can cause delayed and irregular menstruation
  15. It is ideal for use between the age of 25 and 45. Teenagers should not use it regularly. This needs to be made aware through sex education, as the prevalence of teenage sex and pregnancy is on the rise in India
  16. Repeated usage can cause ovarian damage and severe menstrual issues, so occasional use is the only recommended usage
  17. It is safe to take the pill during lactation. There is no effect on the quality of milk or any other adverse effect on the baby

I-Pill was introduced as an emergency contraceptive method, and not for regular contraceptive purpose. Its correct usage and avoiding complications is largely dependent on sex education which needs to start early and talk about other safe sex measures and avoid using it on a regular basis.

What It Really Means to Have Endometriosis

What It Really Means to Have Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a painful condition where the endometrium tissue lining the walls of the uterus, grows as implants outside the womb of the patient. This can lead to a number of painful conditions and is often considered as a common cause behind severe pelvic pain, as far as women are concerned. Here is all you need to know about Endometriosis and pelvic pain:

  1. Painful Menstruation: Depending on the stage of the condition, the implants could remain on the surface or go deeper into the ovaries which may cause acute and severe problem during ovulation as well as the menstrual cycles. This is one of the symptoms that one must not ignore. If you are having painful cramps that affect the pelvic area and the abdomen, and if these cramps last throughout the duration of the cycle, then there are strong chances that you are experiencing the pain that comes with Endometriosis. 
  2. Pain During and After Intercourse: While there are many reasons why women may face pain during intercourse, it may be noted that vaginal and pelvic pain that come during and after intercourse could point towards the presence of Endometriosis which is causing irritation and discomfort due to the implants. 
  3. Bowel Movements and Urination: Usually, pelvic pain may trickle down to and also get activated by the bowels when there is a motion as well as urination. This is a common problem that can cause pain which spreads throughout the region if the patient is suffering from Endometriosis. 
  4. Bloating and Other Symptoms: When the abdomen and nearby regions face bloating due to the implants and their painful spread, the pelvic region as a whole bears the brunt in terms of severe pelvic pain. The bloating and other symptoms like loose motions and constipation can also create pain in the abdomen and pelvic region on a persistence basis. Sharp pains may also shoot up and down the lower back due to such symptoms which should not be ignored if they do not abate within a few days. 
  5. Misdiagnosis: Many times, the bloating and pelvic pain may be linked with pelvic inflammatory disease which causes pain in the muscles and joints. But if you are having pain in the abdomen as well as problems during your menstrual cycle, then it may be helpful to have the tests for Endometriosis done as well. 

In order to diagnose the condition, the doctor must ensure that proper imaging tests like MRI and CT scans as well as an ultrasound with lab tests based on blood samples have been conducted. The pelvic pain that comes with this condition can be treated with the help of pain relievers like ibuprofen and aspirin.

TREATMENT-

Medical Treated of Endometriosis-

  • Oral contraceptives, progesterone, danazol
  • GnRH agonist with add-back
  • Alternating GnRH agonist and OCs
  • Aromatase inhibitors
  • NSAID

Surgical Treatment-

The surgical management of endometriosis involves careful consideration of the indications for surgery, surgical techniques, surgeon experience, preoperative evaluation and ancillary techniques.

Surgery may be either 'conservative' or 'definitive'. Conservative surgical management of endometriosis has the goal of restoring normal anatomy and relieving pain. This approach is most often applied to women of reproductive age who wish to conceive in the future or to avoid induction of menopause at an early age. It may involve:

  • direct ablation,
  • lysis, or excision of lesions,
  • interruption of nerve pathways,
  • removal of ovarian endometriomas,
  • excision of lesions invading adjacent organs (bowel, bladder, appendix, or ureter).

Definitive surgery involves bilateral oophorectomy to induce menopause and may include removal of the uterus and fallopian tubes and, ideally, excision of all visible endometriotic nodules and lesions. It should be considered in women who have significant pain and symptoms despite conservative treatment, do not desire future pregnancies, or are undergoing hysterectomy because of other pelvic conditions, such as menorrhagia or fibroids.

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

If your last period was on 4 th of august and you are having normal regular periods and you have taken I pill with in the prescribed period then it is quite unlikely that pregnancy would set in .just relax and wait for your cycles. You may not get your periods on time as after I pill periods tend to get delayed so if you don't get your period on time then please get your pregnancy test done so as to be sure.

you have to get your thyroid checked to see that your TSH levels are within normal limits and then check your weight as if you are over weight then also your periods tend to get delayed. since you and PCOD in the past so taking high protein , low carb diet is beneficial.
