PCOD - How It Is Ruining Your Body?

PCOD - How It Is Ruining Your Body?

Poly Cystic Ovarian Disorder or PCOD is one of the most common gynecological problems faced by women around the world. This condition is characterized by an imbalance of hormones that causes menstrual irregularities and can affect the way a woman looks. If left untreated, PCOD can affect your chances of having a child in the future and increase your risk of heart disease and diabetes. Some of the changes that may become visible as a result of PCOD are:

  1. Acne: Recurrent acne breakouts are the most common symptom of PCOD. This usually takes the form of large, red pimples that are deep-seated and do not respond well to topical creams. Acne caused by PCOD usually develops on the cheeks, chin and along the jawline. These parts of your face are referred to as the hormonally sensitive parts of the face. It may also get aggravated by certain foods. Birth control pills are the best form of treatment for this type of acne.
  2. Weight Gain: Women suffering from PCOD put on weight easily, but it becomes difficult to shed weight. The hormonal imbalance makes it difficult for the body to use insulin. Instead, this is converted into fat and stored around the abdominal area. Women with PCOD tend to have more of an apple shaped body because of this. Being overweight can lead to a number of other problems and hence it is imperative for a PCOD patient to constantly keep their calorie intake in check.
  3. HirsutismOne of the fallouts of a hormonal imbalance is that you may begin to notice excessive hair growth on your face, neck, arms, chest etc. This condition is known as hirsutism. Hirsutism is the result of an elevated presence of androgen hormones. These are the male hormones responsible for hair growth. Thankfully, this can be controlled. By eating a well-balanced diet, exercising regularly and living a healthy lifestyle you can control this hair growth.
  4. Balding: While on one hand, you will see unwanted hair growth on your arms and legs, the hair on your head may actually thin out. This is also a result of the excessive amount of androgen and testosterone hormones in your body. These hormones are converted into dihydrotestosterone or DHT by the body. DHT makes hair follicles shrink and thereby makes it easier for hair to fall out. It can also make hair finer and cause a lack of visual volume.

PCOD is responsible for infertily, abnormal menstrual bleeding and recurrant abortions. So, timely management is essential for protacting your health. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Care For Your Child Starts In The Womb - Know What Diet Should You Follow During Pregnancy!

Care For Your Child Starts In The Womb - Know What Diet Should You Follow During Pregnancy!

There is an ongoing intense debate on what to eat, how to eat and when to eat during pregnancy. While quality eating is becoming crucial by the day for everyone, it becomes vital for a pregnant woman. It is a widely known and well-established fact that what a woman eats and drinks during pregnancy is the primary source of nourishment for the baby. So, the experts suggest that a would-be mother should choose a wide array of healthy foods and beverages in order to provide the required nutrients that the baby needs for optimal growth and development.

Foods to eat during pregnancy:
To improve prenatal nutrition, you should eat more fruits, lean protein, vegetables, whole grains and of course, dairy products. You must fill half of your plate with fruits and vegetables, 1/4th of it with lean protein and the remaining 1/4th with whole grains. It is also vital to include dairy products in each meal.

During pregnancy, you should eat more protein, which can be found in dairy products, particularly Greek yogurt. Also, increase your intake of soybean, peanuts, chickpeas, beans, and peas in your daily diet as they are excellent plant-based source of iron, folate, protein, and fiber. Sweet potatoes should always find a place in your diet since they contain copious amounts of beta-carotene, which is converted to Vitamin A in the body. Salmon contains Omega 3-fatty acids such as DHA and EPA, which are required for the development of the baby’s brain and the eyes.

Foods to avoid during pregnancy:

To enhance the good effects of these helpful foods, you should also curb down those that can prove to be detrimental to your health. Some of these include:

  1. Alcohol: Alcohol can directly pass to the baby through the umbilical cord, and heavy consumption of alcohol during pregnancy is linked with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders which may cause physical issues along with learning and behavioral problems in the unborn child.
  2. Fishes with high mercury level: Fishes with high levels of methylmercury can prove to be detrimental to the baby. It is a toxic substance which may pass through the placenta and may prove to be harmful to the unborn baby's brain, nervous and renal system.
  3. Raw meat: A mother may pass the Toxoplasma infection to her baby, which may lead to blindness and mental disability in later life of the child by consuming raw meat. So, it is essential to avoid sushi, uncooked poultry, raw cookie dough, homemade ice cream, tiramisu and raw and undercooked sprouts.

Note that even though pregnancy diet is referred to as eating for two, it doesn't mean that you will have to consume twice as much food as you used to consume. You are not eating for two until your second trimester, and the best thing you can do is to add 300 calories more along with the general dietary intake.

Family Planning - Why Go For It?

Family Planning - Why Go For It?

Home to the second largest population in the world, India has been facing a population explosion for quite a few decades. Thus, family planning becomes an important aspect of India’s vast social fabric. Family planning methods enable its citizens to control the potential damages inflicted by the raging population explosion. Research indicates that an estimated 214 million women of reproductive age in developing countries are willing to avoid pregnancy through the use modern contraceptive methods. In response, modern medical science has created various options designed to inhibit conception and prevent the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases.

Know the different family planning options available
Citizens can use family planning technique to control the expansion of their families.

  1. Oral contraceptive pills: These formulations are marketed in the form of small tablets that have to be orally ingested. They stop ovulation and thicken the cervical mucus to block the passage of sperm cells.
  2. Injections: This technique hinges on subcutaneous injections of progesterone that prevents ovulation and thickens the cervical mucus.
  3. Condoms: These family planning devices are engineered from latex, a refined form of rubber. They create a physical barrier that prevents conception.
  4. Diaphragms: This device is a dome-shaped rubber cup that covers the cervix after it is inserted into the vagina before sexual intercourse.
  5. IUDs - It is a very effective mode of contraception specially to keep gap inbetween two pregnancy and after your family is completed. It is effective for almost 5 years. It is best for Indian population.
  6. Family planning throgh operation: It can be done laproscopicaly or mini laparoscopy. One can go for it if they have at least two living healthy children.

Why should one opt for family planning?

  1. Promotes individual and national growth: Family planning is essential to support initiatives that secure the health, well-being, and autonomy of women. These efforts support the development of human communities, enable the achievement of social and community goals, and boost national prosperity.
  2. Prevents pregnancy-related issues: Family planning prevents the occurrence of health issues related to pregnancy in women. This is important in terms of boosting women’s general health and well-being. A woman’s ability to choose bears a direct influence on her physical and emotional well-being.
  3. Unwanted pregnancy: Family planning prevents unwanted pregnancies in older women. This demographic faces higher health risks from pregnancies.
  4. Maternal mortality: Family planning allows women to limit the size of the family unit. Medical evidence suggests that women who have borne more than four children face a heightened risk for maternal mortality. Family planning reduces the rate of unintended pregnancies and thus cuts the need for unsafe abortions.
  5. Prevention of diseases: Women infected with HIV/AIDS must drastically reduce the risk of unintended pregnancies. Failure to comply may result in the birth of babies infected with diseases. The use of male and female condoms offers dual protection against sexually transmitted diseases and infections.
  6. Empowering women: Family planning helps women to make an informed decision about their own sexual and reproductive health. It offers an opportunity for women to pursue education, boost their professional standing, and participate in non-family institutions. Moreover, smaller families allow parents to make meaningful investments in each child.

In light of the above, family planning has emerged as a critical mission in modern developing countries. National, state, and local governments must work with citizens to achieve community goals.

Infertility - Common Factors Behind It!

Infertility - Common Factors Behind It!

Most couples look forward towards completing their family with a child. However, getting pregnant isn’t easy for everyone. The inability to conceive a child despite having unprotected sexual intercourse for a year is termed as infertility. Infertility can be caused due to issues related to both man and woman's health.

Reasons behind infertility in women

  1. Ovulation disorders: Many women suffer from hormonal disorders such as PCOD which prevents the formation of egg by the ovaries as per the monthly cycle. If the ovaries do not release eggs at the right time, sperm cells will have nothing to fertilize. Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism are two other common hormonal disorders that can affect ovulation. In addition to this, your ovulation cycle can get adversely affected by eating disorders, exercising too much or an injury.
  2. Fallopian tube damage or blockage: The ovaries are connected to the uterus through fallopian tubes. Once an egg is released by the ovaries it must pass through these tubes to reach the uterus where it can be fertilized. In some cases, a woman may have a damaged fallopian tube as a result of pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis or any other problem. In such cases, the inflammation and scarring can restrict the egg’s movement and keep it from being fertilized.
  3. Poor egg quality: It is important that the health of the egg must also be considered as a poor quality egg can cause complications at a later stage during the pregnancy.  There are a number of factors that can affect the quality of an egg being released. Some of the most important factors are age of the woman, stress level and overall physical health.

     

Some of the most common causes of infertility in men are:

  1. Poor sperm quality: To penetrate the egg and fertilize it sperm cells must be the right shape and be agile. Thus sperm health includes the shape of sperm cells, sperm motility and tail whip. The quantity of sperm cells produced also plays a large role in determining a couple’s fertility. Low sperm count and poor quality sperm could be the result of prolonged exposure to electromagnetic frequencies, smoking, poor diet and alcohol consumption.
  2. Blocked Vas Deferens: The Vas Deferens is the tube through which sperm travel from the testicles to the penis. A blockage in this tube will restrict the amount of sperm being ejaculated and can cause infertility. This blockage may be caused by scarring as a result of an STD or varicocele.

Get laproscopic and hyteroscopic evaluation of your tubes and uterus. We may find reason for miscarriage and actual conditions of tubes. Sometimes hsg are misleading.

If tubes are badly damaged results of laproscopic correction is poor. If you can afford ivf is better option. If not go for laproscopic surgery for tubal blockage.
