Blood Clots - 4 Common Signs That Indicate It!

Blood Clots - 4 Common Signs That Indicate It!

Blood clots can be alarming, more so during pregnancy. The seriousness is much more because of the baby growing inside you. However, the good part is that this condition is considerably rare.
However, one can take steps to minimize the risks of this condition during pregnancy.

What is a blood clot?
Blood clots develop when the platelets obstruct blood flow. Normally, this happens after any injury or a cut, in order to prevent continuous bleeding. During pregnancy, blood clots act as a safeguard against losing excessive blood at the time of labor. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is however, a serious condition wherein a blood clot forms within the leg’s deep veins or the pelvic area. DVT is linked to Pulmonary Embolism, a condition wherein a blood clot ruptures and travels all the way to the lungs’ blood vessels.

Bear in mind that statistically, a blood clot may affect one or two out of every 1000 women. So there should be no real alarm unless you realize that you could be at risk. The risks of this condition are at their highest, either during the initial six weeks post-childbirth or the first 3-4 months post pregnancy.

The risk factors are:

  1. Family history of DVT
  2. Smoking or having been exposed to passive smoke
  3. Age- especially above the age of 35
  4. Being overweight or obese
  5. Sedentary lifestyle devoid of any exercise
  6. Childbirth via a C-section

Common symptoms:
Although rare, some of the common symptoms include:

  1. Pain or swelling in the affected leg
  2. Pelvic pain
  3. Pain that deteriorates while walking/moving around
  4. Abnormally large veins

Possible complications:
Placental abruption or blood clots in the placenta

  1. Stroke
  2. Heart attack
  3. Miscarriage
  4. Pulmonary Embolism

Treatment and prevention
Adopting a healthier way of life by following a proper diet and exercising regularly is the basic preventive measure you can take. Discuss the type of exercises you can do with the healthcare provider. Exercising regularly ensures better circulation, thus averting the formation of blood clots. Now is as good a time as ever when it comes to quitting tobacco. An anticoagulant will be administered that prevents blood clotting.

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

Labour - Medical & Natural Ways To Induce It!

Labour - Medical & Natural Ways To Induce It!

Pregnancy is usually one of the most important times in a woman’s life. Pregnancies are divided into four terms. These include the early term where the delivery happens after 37 weeks, the full term where delivery happens after 39 weeks, the later term where the delivery takes place after 41 weeks and the fourth or post-term stage where the delivery happens after 42 weeks.

If a pregnancy lasts for two weeks longer that the expected due date, a woman is more likely to experience complications. In such situations, it is recommended that a woman induce the labour or has it done by a doctor.

The medical ways to induce labour are as follows:
1. Cervical ripening helps in making the unborn baby anxious and come out of the womb.
2. Breaking or bursting of the amniotic sac that covers the baby within the uterus. This gets the labour started and is also known as amniotomy.
3. Using oxytocin to induce labour as it tends to ripen the cervix and making more space for the delivery around the uterus by lubricating it further.
4. Naturally occurring chemicals like prostaglandins might be used. These tend to soften the cervix to allow cervical stretching. These can either be delivered to the vagina or taken as an oral medication.

Some of the natural and most effective ways through which labour can be induced are as follows:
1. Relaxation techniques: Self-hypnosis or guided imagery may be useful in inducing labour in certain women.

2. Sex: The uterus tends to contract from the orgasm and release oxytocin. However, women with broken waters or vaginal bleeding should not indulge in this activity.
3. Nipple stimulation: Gently rubbing or rolling the nipple may release oxytocin and hence induce labour.
4. Herbs: Certain herbs like tulsi or turmeric might be useful in inducing labour.
5. Exercise: Taking a light walk or certain exercises might help in inducing labour. This might help moving the baby into the pelvis.
6. Foods: certain spicy foods might help induce labour. However, at times they can also slow it down. One should consult a doctor while doing so.
7. Homeopathy: Certain homeopathic treatments might also be very useful. Do consult a homeopathy specialist before taking any and discussing the side effects if any.

It is highly important that women speak with their doctors or specialists to talk about methods of inducing labour since some of the methods mentioned above might turn out to work for some, whereas for the others, they may not be as useful or could also turn out to be harmful. There are chances that a woman might get highly annoyed because of the delay during the post-term stage. However, one should always give different relaxation techniques a try.

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

There are certain tablets, powders and injections which can improve the fluid and weight of the baby. These can be prescribed only after checking you physically. So please do consult a Obstetrician or gynecologist. From your end you can try and consume at least 4 to 5 lts of fluids including water, juices, coconut water, buttermilk etc.

We are newly married couples (age 30M, 29F) and wanted a baby only after 3 years. But many are suggesting to plan a baby within 2 years of marriage. Is there truly any complications and we should not wait that long?

Yes definitely. After 30 years of age chances of complication increases. So don't wait till 3 years if possible. But still if it is not possible for you to carry pregnancy now you can wait and have pre pregnancy counselling before planning your pregnancy.
