What is the diet to be followed by a pregnant woman in the first three months of pregnancy.

What is the diet to be followed by a pregnant woman in the first three months of pregnancy.
Hello. If you don’t have any medical condition and if your diet is poor to begin with, it is even more important to make sure you have a healthy diet now. You need more vitamins and minerals, especially folic acid and iron. You need a few more calories during your pregnancy as well. Getting your diet right for pregnancy is more about what you eat than about how much. Limit junk food, as it has lots of calories with few or no nutrients. Eat a variety of foods from these different food groups each day: Milk and dairy products: skimmed milk, yogurt/curd, buttermilk (chhaach), cottage cheese (paneer). They contain calcium. Cereals, whole grains, dals, pulses and nuts: these are good sources of protein if you do not eat meat. Vegetarians need about 45 grams of nuts and 2/3 of a cup of legumes for protein each day. Vegetables and fruits: these provide vitamins, minerals and fibre. Avoid Papaya. Meat, fish and poultry: these provide concentrated proteins. Fluids: Drink lots of fluids, especially water and fresh fruit juices. Make sure you drink clean boiled or filtered water. Carry your own water when out of the house, or buy bottled water from a reputed brand. Avoid packaged juices as they have a very high sugar content. Fats and oils: Ghee, butter, coconut milk and oil are high in saturated fats, which are not very healthy. Hydrogenated vanaspati oil and ghee is high in trans fats, which are as bad for you as saturated fats. A better source of fat is vegetable oils because these contain more unsaturated fat. **********Consult nutritionist also****

My Friend took her first pill from misoprostol and mifepristone kit on 19th march on 20th march she took her next 2 pills together like it was told and 1 hour after talking the pills she started bleeding and cramping and on 21th march she took her next 2 pills as there are 5 pills in the kit her bleeding continued for next 4 days i.e. 25th of march then she started spotting but her cramps continued and she started having lower and upper abdomen pain I consulted a doctor on this site about this and I had talked to a doctor she said these are the side effects of the pills you took and she gave me name of to medicines which were Rabeprazole and Rantac she took these medicine for 5 days her pain was vanished just after she took these medicine but she was spotting all throughout. Her doze of medicine was of 5 days so her medicine finished on 2nd April. But she had one problem that whenever she used to eat something heavy or oily she had (gastric) pain in her abdomen, the pain was bearable and lasted for half or 1 hour. From 10th April she started bleeding, the bleeding was like the bleeding she has on her period. She feels gastric pain when she eats something oily or heavy food. And its 13th April she is still bleeding, not heavy bleeding but normal period bleeding with no cramps. Is that normal doctor?

I can understand your agony and misery. You still have a tube left so still there is hope. Get your self examined for its patency and uterine cavity assessment by hysteroscopy. You need work up for your abortion issues too. The reason for occurrence of twice ectopic pregnancy is must before trying out for next pregnancy. If all the reports are normal when get ovulation induction along with follicular monitoring. When you have ovulation on left side go ahead with planned relation or iui depending on your husbands semen analysis. This way you have high chances as you had natural conception in past so wish you luck for successful pregnancy and healthy baby in your lap soon.

eat light diet with simple proteins if nausea isn't bothering her less spices or fried food as demand during first three months is not very high compared to last three months when baby starts gaining weight baby is taking shape and all organs are developing avoid medicines and synthetic foods BTW. nausea is nature's own way to cut out unnecessary eating

Chlamydia And its Symptoms!

Chlamydia And its Symptoms!

Chlamydia is caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis and doesn't have any defined symptoms and hence, most people who suffer from it are not even aware of their status. Of all the sexually transmitted diseases, Chlamydia is the most common.

And, since it doesn't have any defined symptoms, it is transmitted unknowingly from one person to another. Chlamydia can also be passed on from mother to child, if the mother suffers from Chlamydia while she is pregnant. Here are a few things you should know about this sexually transmitted disease.

Symptoms: Symptoms of Chlamydia are noticeable within 1-3 weeks of unprotected intercourse. The symptoms of Chlamydia are different in men and women. 

Symptoms in Men

  • Clear or cloudy discharge from the penis
  • Painful urination
  • Burning and itching around the penis head
  • Painful swelling of the testicles

Symptoms in Women

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Painful menstruation
  • Bleeding between menstrual cycles
  • Abdominal pain and fever
  • Painful urination
  • Itching and burning around vagina
  • Pain during intercourse

A simple urine test or lab test can be used to diagnose Chlamydia. For the lab test, the doctor will take a sample swab from a man's urethra or a woman's cervix.

Once diagnosed, Chlamydia can be easily treated. In most cases, oral antibiotics will cure the patient in a week or two. It is important to complete the antibiotic course even if the symptoms disappear early. In some cases, women with severe Chlamydia may need to be hospitalized for intravenous treatment.

With Chlamydia, it is important not only for you to get yourself treated, but to also get your partner treated. This will eliminate the chances of the disease recurring. You must also test yourself after three months to ensure that the disease has been completely cured.

Chlamydia can affect your health badly, if left untreated. It can cause pelvic inflammatory disease in women, which may make the woman infertile by affecting her fallopian tubes. It could also increase the risk of an ectopic pregnancy and premature birth. Further, remember that Chlamydia can also be passed on from mother to child if left untreated. This can cause the newborn to have an eye infection or pneumonia at the time of birth. If left untreated in men, Chlamydia can cause nongonococcal urethritis, epididymitis and proctitis. The first is an infection of the urethra; the second, an infection of the tube that carries the sperm from the testis and the third is an inflammation of the rectum.

Like all STDs, Chlamydia can be prevented by the use of a condom and fidelity between sexual partners. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Vaginal Discharge - Know the Reasons

MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Chennai
Vaginal Discharge - Know the Reasons

There are certain glands in the vaginal walls and uterine cervix of a woman, which cleanse the vagina by producing a small amount of fluid. This clear or milky white coloured vaginal discharge is normal for a healthy woman if it doesn’t smell unpleasant. But if you observe that the colour, consistency, odour or amount of your vaginal discharge differs from usual, it may indicate an infection or a disease.

Here are 6 common factors behind abnormal vaginal discharge.

1. Bacterial vaginosis
Bacterial vaginosis is a medical condition characterised by agray discharge, which has a lingering fish-like odour. Moreover, if you experience irritation and burning sensation in the vagina, which is increased by intercourse, it’s a strong indication of bacterial vaginosis.

2. Yeast Infection
It often happens that your vaginal area’s natural bacterial balance is disturbed due to certain factors such as use of antibiotics, decreased immunity, stress, uncontrolled diabetes or consumption of excessive sugary foods. This results in yeast overgrowth in the vagina, known as simply yeast infection or candidiasis. It’s characterised by a thick and whitish-grey discharge from the vagina.

3. Gonorrhoea
Caused by the bacteria Neisseria Gonorrhoea, this sexually transmitted disease (STD) is an infection, which causes vaginal discharge of an intense odour. Other symptoms of this disease include feeling of pain while urinating, chills, fever and irregular discharge of menstrual fluids. If left untreated, gonorrhoea can transform into a pelvic inflammatory disease and can even lead to infertility.

4. Genital Herpes
Genital herpes, a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that leads to formation of small watery blisters on the vaginal area, and causes irritation, itching and pain while having intercourse or urinating, may also be the cause of a vaginal discharge of watery texture.

5. Atrophic Vaginitis
After menopause, there’s a considerable decrease in oestrogen levels of the body along with the occurrence of changes in tissues of the vaginal cavity. This medical condition, known as atrophic vaginitis, can lead to a watery vaginal discharge, which can sometimes get bloody. Some other symptoms of this disease are vaginal inflammation and thinning or atrophy of tissues.

6. Infected IUD
In some situations, it may happen that the intrauterine device (IUD- a form of contraceptive) inserted in the body of a woman can get infected. This results in a purulent discharge (pus) from the vagina. Getting the IUD removed as soon as possible is the best thing to be done in this situation. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

The problem is my roommate , getting fatter day by day. We cannot figure out what could be the reason. Whilst other girls here in the hostel are getting thinner due to the improper food and hygiene, she on the other hand is gaining weight and has become 10 times fatter than what she was when she came to Asansol, here in the hostel, last year. It has been 1 year. Please give me tips on how to reduce or lose weight within only a few weeks. What to eat and what not to? Will it just be okay if she drinks a lot of water and minimizes the quantity of food by a considerable amount?

Your room mate is not the problem but the monotonous food served by hostel is, that leads to binge eating. You are right that drinking lots of water does reduce the need to eat extra. Go for weekly shopping for fruits and vegetables and store them in fridge if you have got one in your room, otherwise buy one, some authorities do give permission to keep coolers and fridge in rooms. Do try for few days - eat hostel food plus plenty of seasonal fruits and vegetables plus water and write back after a month. Remember walking is best and simple exercise.
