According to a report by WHO, every hour about five women die in India during childbirth. Giving birth is one of the most challenging bodily functions that a woman has to perform in their life.
When it comes to the mode of delivery, there are a number of delivery options:
- Normal or Vaginal Birth
- C-Section or also known as Cesarean
- Water Birth
- Vacuum Extraction
Of the few mentioned above the most common delivery options are natural birth and C-section. The mode of delivery will be decided only after factoring in the woman’s health condition, ability to endure pain etc.
Also, when it comes to deliveries, there is a lot of half-baked information floating around. The internet is one of the biggest contributor in this regard. Here are some of the most common myths -
Myths on Normal Delivery:
Myth 1: It’s More Superior
Many women consider or think that being able to bring a life into the world without the aid of any painkillers or any other external interventions gives them a sense of empowerment.
Myth 2: It is Riskier
There is no definite statistic to prove that a natural birth is more risky than other delivery options.
Myth 3: A Process that comes naturally to a Woman
Another commonly held fallacy about normal delivery is that a woman’s body knows exactly how to respond to a normal delivery. The common reason given is that women have been undergoing natural childbirth process since time immemorial without external interventions or assistance. Not only is a normal delivery fraught with misconceptions but so is a C-section surgery.
Myths on C-Section:
Myth 1: A C-Section is more convenient compared to a vaginal Birth
A C-Section is an invasive surgery method that comes with its own set of risks like any surgery. Doctors generally advise women to opt for a natural birth if possible.
Myth 2: You cannot undergo too many C-Sections
There is no limitation on the number of C-sections you can have in your lifetime. However, the risks of complications increase with every subsequent C-section.
It is advised that you plan the delivery option based on your health condition weeks before your due date. In some cases, C-section surgery is resorted to during the course of a vaginal birth when complications arise.

Hi, I am 27 years old unmarried girl having 60 kg weight. I am on periods since 3rd Sept. I am also passing clots. To identify the issue, I had my ultrasound and according to the reports I have a simple left ovarian cyst of 46 x 18 x 34 mm vol: 15 cc. I am consulting an homeopathic Dr. He has given me DROX 15 Haslab to stop bleeding 3 times a day. It is my second day of the medication but still I am having heavy flow with clots. Note: I previously had a history of PCOD but it was cured.
I am 3 weeks pregnant and I want to travel back from London to Delhi in 9-10 hours flight. Is it safe to do so or should I wait for my first trimester to end? Also when can I go for my first ultrasound?

Infertility is a growing problem, which has forced couples to seek alternative methods of conception. There can be a host of reasons behind infertility in both men and women. Endometriosis, blocked fallopian tubes and lack of ovulation are some common causes that most people are aware of. However, here is a look at some lesser-known causes of infertility.
- Obesity: 5% of India’s total population is morbidly obese. Unhealthy lifestyle, regular consumption of junk foods, lack of bodily movements, is to blame for the rampant obesity. This excess body weight and fat can often cause severe problems for fertility. A couple needs to maintain their respective ideal weights if they want to stand the maximum chance of conceiving a child naturally.
- Stress: Prospective mothers know that stress during pregnancy can be quite harmful for the baby. However, stress levels can severely limit your chances of getting pregnant as well. Research has shown that stress can even damage the eggs in women, leading to the infertility.
- Intense exercise: While moderate amount of exercise and physical activity is known to boost fertility, spending too much time in the gym can be counterproductive when you are trying to have a baby. Going for a jog every morning or engaging in simple cardio workouts can help increase fertility, while weight training can pose serious problems in this phase of life. Similarly, steer clear of any protein supplement as well.
- Smoking: Well, this may not come as a surprise, but smoking affects your fertility and not in a good way. Both men and women are adversely affected by tobacco smoking. The quality of the sperm is severely damaged in a man who smokes regularly. Similarly, the eggs may also be damaged due to cigarette smoke.
- Processed foods: Processed meats can drastically reduce the sperm count in a man. If you are in the habit of eating such foods, ensure that you give it up and start consuming more organic meat and vegetables. This is much better for your general health and aids the goals of conception as well.
Lastly, ensure that you engage in sexual intercourse throughout the ovulation cycle and not just at the time when a pregnancy is most likely. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
PCOS or Polycystic ovary syndrome is a condition where a woman’s body produces excessive male sex hormones. This leads to an imbalance in the body, adversely affecting the chances of a successful pregnancy. Additionally, women who suffer from the disorder may have excess facial hair growth or baldness.
Treatment for PCOS
Even though there is no permanent cure for the PCOS, the treatment can help manage the symptoms. Here is a look at some treatments used.
- Birth Control- Regularly ingesting birth control pills can help regulate the female hormone levels in the body. These drugs contain estrogen and progestin hormones, which restores the normal hormonal balance.
- Type 2 diabetes medication- These drugs increase the insulin levels in the body. This not only helps deal with PCOS, but also restores the normalcy of the menstrual cycles.
- Fertility Drugs- These medications are used to induce ovulation. However, the usage of such drugs may lead to multiple births in some cases.
- Hair removal treatment- The excess hair growth can be stopped or prevented with the help of medications. Additionally, laser hair removal procedures may also be used to get rid of the unwanted hair from the body.
- Surgery- If all other treatments fail to prodcue with the desired results, surgery may be considered to restore normal ovulation.
Ongoing Care For Patients
Since this condition is incurable, patients need to stick to the treatment throughout their life. Along with medications, certain lifestyle and diet restrictions must also be maintained.
- Losing excess body weight
- Follow a health diet. Consult a doctor before you start a particular diet, but generally try to limit carbohydrate intake if you have PCOS.
- Exercising at least 30 minutes a day for three days a week
It is crucial to understand that PCOS is treatable, even though there is no cure. If you follow the directives of the physician, you can lead a relatively normal life, even when you suffer from this condition.
