Planning for Pregnancy? Preconception Health Is Equally Important as Health During Pregnancy

MBBS, MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Lucknow
Planning for Pregnancy? Preconception Health Is Equally Important as Health During Pregnancy

Pregnancy should not be considered a nine month journey, but a year long journey. Knowing that the first few weeks of pregnancy are the most vital to the development of the baby, a mother should be healthy and avoid any harmful activities and substances near the time of conception. The future health of a baby is decided even  before  conception. The baby'shealth depends on your preconception health. Planning a baby is a demanding task, but if you plan it well you will have a healthier and easier pregnancy. Following these simple guidelines can help you prepare for pregnancy.               

 First lets talk about the healthy habits that should be followed:·        

1. Exercise – Start exercising now. You have to decide dependingupon your present weight whether you want to lose weight, gain weight,build muscle, or improve lung capacity. Some good exercise options include walking, swimming, bicycling, and aerobics. Yoga is an excellent choice for exercise because it incorporates posture,breathing, and concentration techniques which will be beneficial for youduring labor.   

2. Read – Get yourself educated and prepared by reading books on pregnancy and child birth. 

3. Track your menstrual cycle – This is very important. Your doctor will ask you about your menstrual cycle, so you need to be prepared. Keeping track of your cycle will also help you track your ovulation and increase your chance of pregnancy. 

 4. Practice relaxation techniques – Relaxation can help minimize stress. Try yoga,meditation, or listening to soft relaxing music in a warm bath. 

5. Get lots of sleep – Eight hours of sleep is recommended if you are trying to become pregnant. Adequate amounts of sleep can also help relieve stress and tension. 

6. Eat healthy – Nutrition is vital to your health. The healthier you are the easier the pregnancy will be for you. Make sure that you are getting lots of vitamins in     your diet, and start taking folic acid now. Studies have shown that folic acid (300-400mcg a day)     can help reduce the risk of neural tube defects when taken before     conception. Just make sure to tell your health care provider about any supplements you are taking.     

7. Up-to-DateVaccination - Make sure your vaccination is complete. Vaccination againstrubella and flu are very important. It is also important to maintain a gap ofat least one month between your rubella shot and pregnancy planning.·       

 8. Optimize your Medical Condition- If you have Hypertension, Diabetes, Asthma, Epilepsy or any other medicalcondition you must take complete advice from the physician. Blood pressure andsugar levels have to be under full control. The type and dose of the drug mayneed modifications.·        

9. Check Family History - Ask your parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, aunts andcousins about any health problems in the family like genetic problems, mentalretardation or malformations in babies. This can help your Gynaecologist todetermine which problems to look for and how to prevent it. ·       

10. Visit your Doctor - Carry a record of your medical conditions, family history and achecklist of your queries. Get tested for Blood Group, Thalassemia, HIV,Thyroid Levels, and Blood Sugars. 

Now lets see the habits that are harmful and should be completely avoided: 

1. Smoking  can cause low-birth weight babies, preterm deliveries, and 10% of all infant deaths. So quit smoking

2. Drinking  Alcohol – There is no safe amount of alcohol to consume while you are pregnant. Recreational drug  use during periconception  period can increase the chance of miscarriage, low birth-weight, premature births, developmental delays, and behavioral and learning problems.

 3. Prescription Drugs – There are many prescription drugs that are teratogenic (cause birth defects). Talk with your healthcare provider about any and all prescription drugs you are taking.  

4. Avoid Exposure to - Harmful chemicals, metals and toxic substances at workplace and home that could be potentially teratogenic. For example, most studies show that the greatest risk of  exposure to pesticides     is during the first three to eight weeks of the first trimester when the neural tube( that gives rise to     future brain and spinal cord development is occurring.) This is often before a woman knows she is pregnant.  

5. Protect yourself from infections. Stay away from cats Stress – Stress has been linked to delayed or missed periods which can cause difficulty tracking ovulation and getting pregnant. 

6. Limit your amount of stress as much as possible. You may find it helpful to employ relaxation techniques or yoga to help moderate your stress level. You might need to change your work hours or may be change the job profile. You will also need someone to help you out with the household chores  around this time. 

7. Herbs – Most herbs and herbal remedies are not mandated by the FDA, and therefore,there is little to no research on the effect they have on pregnancy. Discuss any herbal or natural remedies you may be using     with your healthcare provider.

8. Caffeine – Few studies have shown that there may be an increase in miscarriages among women who consume more than 200 mg   (one 12oz cup of coffee) a day versus those who do not consume any caffeine.

At the end if you follow the above guidelines you can have relatively  trouble free pregnancy and a healthy baby  that every pregnant woman aspires for.

I am 19 years old. I had taken unwanted 72 on 30th oct pre semen slightly touched the condom. I had taken another unwanted 72 6th nov because condom broke during anal sex. On that day (6th nov) I have got withdrawal bleeding just for 9 hours and the amount is very very low. Is it just the side effect if that pill? Will I get this kind of bleeding very frequently? My periods date is 17th nov. When will I get my next periods? Will it bw too late or will I skip it? Am I safe from pregnancy? When will my periods be normal. Will this 2 pill in one cycle make a huge problems in my periods schedule?

Taking frequent i-pills can mess your periods up! I would advice you to avoid any further unprotected intercourse this month and wait patiently for your next periods. If they are over a week due to a serum b-Hcg to rule out pregnancy. Also consider taking regular contraceptive pills to avoid any further problems.

No urine test for pregnancy is positive only after skipping the periods if cycle is regular, test should be positive by 3 days after due date negative doesn't mean negative for pregnancy repeat the test after a week if in a hurry to know, get beta hcg hormone test which is positive only when the woman is pregnant and implantation has taken place. This test cam be done before due date.

Pregnancy is possible only on one day of cycle, day of ovulation when ovum is released from ovary of woman. That is why couple should have 12 to 24 cycles of unprotected sex around time of ovulation before going to Gynecologist or infertility specialist for further evaluation and advise. In woman with regular cycles of 28 days this occurs on 14 th day after first day of last menstrual period. As body does not behave like mathematics, fertile period is considered as from day 10 to day 17.

Integrative medicine is a recent advance, and a healing system through which conditions like Diabetes can be reversed. Yes thats right, reversed, so that its possible that your Insulin may be stopped and you may return to your normal vibrant health. Of course, this can be confirmed only after a detailed consultation and testing, but the system works. As an example, a 65 yr old patient, diabetic since 25 years and on high dose of Insulin, was able to reduce Insulin to 40% in one week.

Mota Hone Ka Tarika in Hindi - मोटा होने का तरीका

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Mota Hone Ka Tarika in Hindi - मोटा होने का तरीका

कुछ लोगों के लिए वज़न बढ़ाना, वजन घटाने से भी ज़्यादा मुश्किल हो सकता है। कुछ लोगों के लिए वजन बढ़ाना मुश्किल होता है क्योंकि वे अधिक सक्रिय हैं, जबकि अन्य स्वाभाविक रूप से पतले हैं क्योंकि उनके पास छोटे ढांचे हैं और वे बड़े और मजबूत (एक्टोमोर्फ्स) होने के लिए नहीं बने हैं। 

वज़न बढ़ाने के लिए आपको अपने शरीर की खपत की तुलना में अधिक कैलोरी खाने की जरूरत है। केवल आपके आहार में कुछ खाद्य पदार्थों को जोड़ना वजन बढ़ाने के लिए बहुत प्रभावी हो सकता है। लेकिन एक पूर्ण वजन बढ़ाने की विधि के लिए प्रशिक्षण और पोषण के साथ में स्थिरता की आवश्यकता होती है।

वजन बढ़ाने के तरीके:

कुछ अतिरिक्त, लेकिन स्वस्थ वजन जोड़ने के लिए इन सरल और आसान सुझाव और आहार का पालन करें:

1. अपने आहार में अधिक कैलोरी जोड़ें:
जैसे कि हम वजन कम करने के लिए कम कैलोरी वाले भोजन खाते हैं, ऐसे ही वज़न हासिल करने के लिए हमें उच्च कैलोरी वाला खाना खाने की ज़रूरत है। वजन बढ़ाने के लिए रोजाना लगभग 250-500 कैलोरी जोड़ें। ऐसे भोजन खाएं जैसे दाल, अनाज, मांस, रोटी, चावल आदि जो कैलोरी में समृद्ध हैं। फ्रेंच बीन्स, ब्रोकोली, गाजर, सलाद, पालक आदि जैसे अधिक सब्जियां खाएं। इसके अलावा, आप निम्नलिखित खाद्य पदार्थों का उपभोग कर सकते हैं: 
- मूंगफली का मक्खन
- केले
- एवोकाडो
- आलू
- चॉकलेट
- स्वस्थ अनाज

2. अधिक बार खाओ:
सिर्फ तीन बार खाने के बजाय रोजाना 5-6 बार भोजन करें। आपके खाने के 3 भारी भोजन के अलावा, अपने आहार में 2-3 हल्के भोजन जोड़ें। नाश्ते के लिए, आप नट्स, मेवे, डेयरी उत्पाद आदि का उपभोग कर सकते हैं। वजन बढ़ने के दौरान आप चॉकलेट, पेस्ट्री और अन्य मिठाई वस्तुओं के लिए अपनी तरस को पूरा कर सकते हैं। अक्सर खाने से, हर तीन से चार घंटे में, आपके शरीर को लगातार ऊर्जा स्तर बनाए रखने में मदद मिलती है।

3. अपने प्रोटीन का सेवन बढ़ाएं:
जबकि वजन बढ़ाने के लिए कैलोरी सबसे बुनियादी आवश्यकता होती है, प्रोटीन और कार्बोहाइड्रेट में समृद्ध, संतुलित आहार इस प्रक्रिया को बढ़ावा देने में मदद करता है। ट्यूना, अंडे, चिकन स्तन, चिकन जांघों, पनीर आदि जैसे खाद्य पदार्थों का उपभोग करें, जो प्रोटीन के समृद्ध स्रोत होते हैं। प्रोटीन आपको वज़न हासिल करने में मदद करता है, लेकिन फिट दिखने के साथ। 

4. योग:
प्राचीन काल से, लोगों ने संपूर्ण स्वास्थ्य और फिटनेस को बनाए रखने के लिए योग पर भरोसा किया है। यह न केवल आपके शरीर को आकार में रखने में मदद करता है, बल्कि तनाव, चिंता, खराब चयापचय आदि जैसी स्थितियों से लड़ने में मदद करता है। योग भूख को सुधारने में भी मदद कर सकता है और आपके समग्र रूप को बनाए रखने में मदद कर सकता है। सर्वांगासन, पवनमुक्तासन, वज्रासन आदि योग उपयोगी हो सकते हैं।

5. तनाव को दूर करें और पर्याप्त नींद लें:
वजन बढ़ाने के आपके प्रयास में तनाव एक बड़ी रुकावट बन सकता है। तनाव और चिंता आपके खाने की आदतों, दिनचर्या, प्रयासों और साथ ही आपके स्वास्थ्य को प्रभावित कर सकती है। योग, संगीत, नृत्य सभी तनाव को कम करने के अच्छे तरीके हैं। आप श्वास-व्यायाम का प्रयास भी कर सकते हैं।

इसके अलावा, पोषण और शारीरिक गतिविधि की तरह, नींद आपके स्वास्थ्य और कल्याण का एक अनिवार्य निर्धारक है। नींद न केवल थकान को कम कर, आपको आराम दिलाती है, बल्कि यह आपके शरीर की मरम्मत और साथ ही निर्माण में भी मदद करती है।
