If you really do not want pregnancy right now, you can visit some nearby gynaec and undergo abortion using pills. Its quite safe if taken under supervision of a gynaecologist. You both can use various contraceptives condoms, oral pills etc to prevent pregnancy. Better to consult a gynaec right away.

This can be a case of delayed ovulation and delayed pregnancy and so the heart beats may not be seen. Please re do an ultrasound after 10 days. If the report shows no change, you might have had a missed abortion. Wait and watch and relax.

Highly lipemic means high fats interfering with results, due to internal factors like hemorrhage any where, liver disease or break down of blood due to any other disease. It can be due to external factors also due to wrong collection of sample. Get the test repeated from another lab and do share with all of us here.

Placental Abruption - What are the Risks and Complications Associated with it?

Placental Abruption - What are the Risks and Complications Associated with it?

Pregnancy can have a number of complications. One of these is known as placental abruption. This is a serious yet uncommon complication. The placenta is a structure in the uterus that nourishes the growing baby. In rare cases, this placenta can get peeled off- partially or completely, before delivery. This is known as placenta abruption and deprives the baby of oxygen and essential nutrients and can cause the mother to experience heavy bleeding. If left untreated, this condition can put the life of both the baby and mother in jeopardy.

The cause of placental abruption has is still not known, but there are a number of conditions that can increase the risk of suffering from this condition. This includes:

  1. A prior placental abruption
  2. High blood pressure
  3. Abdominal trauma such as a fall or blow to the abdomen
  4. Substance abuse or smoking
  5. Premature rupturing of the amniotic sac that surrounds the baby
  6. Any condition that reduces your blood’s ability to clot
  7. Multiple pregnancies
  8. Pregnancy after the age of 40

A placental abruption can be diagnosed through blood tests, an ultrasound and a non stress test to check the baby’s heart rate. Placental abruption affects the life the mother and baby in many ways. For the mother, it can result in excessive bleeding that triggers shock, blood clotting problems and the need for a blood transfusion. It can also cause kidney, liver and pituitary gland failure. Even after delivery, the mother may still experience vaginal bleeding. If this cannot be controlled, an emergency hysterectomy may also be required. The uterus may also not contract properly after delivery and the mother may need medication to help the uterus contract back to its original position.

Placental abruption deprives the baby of essential nutrients and can lead to premature birth or stillbirth. After delivery the baby may suffer from breathing and feeding difficulties. The baby may also be born with low levels of oxygen in the blood. Low blood pressure and low blood count can also be triggered by this condition. In severe cases, it can also lead to brain damage and death shortly after delivery.

Placental abruption can be prevented by following a healthy diet that helps regulate blood pressure. Get plenty of rest and take multivitamins regularly to reduce the risk of suffering from this condition. Lastly, if you experience any contractions or vaginal bleeding, consult your gynaecologist immediately.

I am 23 years old female. I have a history of pcos problem. Now I got to know that I have a cyst in my left ovary near adnexa with 46*40 mm size. I would like to know whether it is curable by medication or is there any need of undergoing surgery?

Hey lybrate-user pcod or pcos is definitely curable. And there is no need for surgery. I am a homeopathic doctor and have cured several ovarian cyst cases. Curing a cyst is much easier than curing pcos because pcos comes with other anomalies also. Like hair growth on chin, weight increase, pigmentation on skin etc etc. So go for homeopathic treatment as early as possible. Because if the size of the cyst increases more than 55-60 mm, then the treatment would not be an option and only surgery will be done.

Contraception

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Pune
Contraception

With increasing globalization and lifestyle changes, even general practitioners are getting more and more young patients willing to adopt contraceptive measures. An optimum clinical choice of contraceptive can only be done through a mutual discussion between the physician and patient taking into consideration both clinical aspects and patient's choice. This article gives a brief general summary of the methods of contraception.

Contraception is the process of taking steps to ensure about not becoming pregnant after having sex. There are different types of contraceptive measures. They all have pros and cons. Different methods will be right for different couples, or right at different times in life.

Types of contraceptives:

Hormonal (2-3%)
Intrauterine (5%)
Barrier (10-15%)
Chemical (15-20%)
Physiologic
Sterilization (4%)
* percentages mentioned within brackets are failure rates

Hormonal contraception

It involves the use of estrogen and progesterone to prevent fertilization; associated with a 2-3% failure rate.
Oral contraceptive pills suppress the action of fsh/lh from the pituitary gland, they also suppress the lh surge, alter the cervical mucosa to inhibit penetration by spermatozoa, and they inhibit atrophic change in the endometrium.
Complications: venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, cva, mi, htn, amenorrhea, cholelithiasis, hepatocellular adenoma. Risks increase with smoking.

Contraindications: dvt, pe, cvd, cva, pregnancy, cancer, abnormal lfts

Classification

Monophasic (fixed combination: take estrogen and progesterone on days 1-21 and placebo on days 22-28. Increased estrogen increases the side effects of a headache, weight gain, nausea, and edema decreased estrogen and progesterone increase the risk of breakthrough bleeding and increases the failure rate.
Multiphasic: low-dose estrogen with varying doses of progesterone on days 1-21.
Progestin-only pills: not as effective and can cause breakthrough bleeding.
Levonorgestrel: lasts up to five years.
Medroxyprogesterone: lasts three months.
Benefits:

Decreases the risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer and decreased the risk of ectopic pregnancy.

Intrauterine contraception

It involves the insertion of a small device into the uterus with the hopes of inhibiting implantation, altering tubal motility, or inflaming the endometrium.
Intrauterine contraceptive devices are associated with a relatively low failure rate (2-4% pregnancy rate) but do suffer from a higher rate of complications (e. G, four times increased the risk of ectopic pregnancy).
Types:

Intrauterine device (iud) with progestogen: it releases progesterone and must be replaced annually.
Iud with copper-t: it contains copper and can last up to 4-6 years.
Side effects:

Increased blood loss and duration of menses, increased dysmenorrhea

Complications:

Expulsion of iud, pregnancy, perforation of the uterine wall when inserted, increased risk of tubo-ovarian abscess (esp. Among younger nulliparous females with greater than ;1 sex partner). Pid is not as common with the newer iuds but still a significant risk factor.

Indicated for: multiparous women greater than 35 years who smoke.

Concerns about pelvic infections and subsequent fertility often limit the use of iucds to women who are at low risk for sexually transmitted disease and to those less likely to desire further children, i. E, monogamous multigravid patients.

Barrier methods

It involves the use of an artificial device to inserted into the vagina or fitted to the penis with the intent to retain the products of intercourse.

Types:

Condoms: condoms have a 2% failure rate in consistent couples and a 10% failure rate in occasional users. They are best indicated for std prevention.
Vaginal diaphragms: they have a 15-20% failure rate, but when combined with a spermicidal jelly and left in for 6-8 hours post-coitus failure rate declines to 2%. Diaphragms are associated with side effects of bladder irritation and cystitis, also colonization with s. Aureus if left in too long.
Cervical caps: they must be properly fitted and can be left in for a longer time than the diaphragm.
Chemical contraception

It has a 15- 20% failure rate and involves the use of sponges and spermicides.
Spermicides contain surfactants to disrupt cervical membranes; placed in the vagina up to 30 minutes before intercourse.
Physiologic contraception

It involves the avoidance of intercourse from an onset of menses to 2-days post ovulation.

Sterilization

This method involves manipulation of parts of male and female anatomy such that conception is prevented by failure and gametes to combine.

Types:

Vasectomy: lesser than 1% failure and can be successfully reversed in some cases.
Tubal ligation: lesser than 1% failure rate. Increase risk of ectopic.
Emergency contraception pills - emergency contraception can be used if one had sex without using contraception; or if someone had sex but there was a mistake with contraception.

Emergency contraception options are usually very effective if started within 3-5 days of unprotected sex. The earlier you take this pill, the more effective it is. It works either by preventing or postponing ovulation or by preventing the fertilized egg from settling in the womb (uterus).

A proper patient counseling informing the success rate and complication of contraception should be an integral part of the treatment regime.

From the last one week their's a problem of itching in my vaginal part and frequently urination also. Please suggest the treatment.

itching could be due to fungal infection but frequent urination could be due to urinary infection. so if have any other symptom come back with the information. presently keep the vaginal area dry by cleaning with water and dry the area with clean cloth. every time when you pass urine also clean it with water and dry it with clean cloth. take plenty of water atleast 2.5 to 3 litres in a day. avoid spicy food. for medication you need to come back in private consult with more information. good luck
