Hello lybrate-user, If you have missed your regular periods, you can do fresh urine pregnancy test to know if you are pregnant or not and for better result you can try during your ovulation time that is 14 days prior to your next menstruation.

Can I travel in flight for 3 hours while trying to get pregnant? Its around 2 weeks we’ve been trying. And I feel symptoms like abdominal cramps, lower back pain and frequent urge to pee. My travel has a layover of 20 minutes in between but I have to be seated in the plane itself.

Back Pain:This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. •Standing hamstring stretch: Place the heel of your injured leg on a stool about 15 inches high. Keep your knee straight. Lean forward, bending at the hips until you feel a mild stretch in the back of your thigh. Make sure you do not roll your shoulders and bend at the waist when doing this or you will stretch your lower back instead of your leg. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Cat and camel: Get down on your hands and knees. Let your stomach sag, allowing your back to curve downward. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Then arch your back and hold for 5 seconds. Do 3 sets of 10. •Quadruped arm/leg raise: Get down on your hands and knees. Tighten your abdominal muscles to stiffen your spine. While keeping your abdominals tight, raise one arm and the opposite leg away from you. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Lower your arm and leg slowly and alternate sides. Do this 10 times on each side.•Pelvic tilt: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your abdominal muscles and push your lower back into the floor. Hold this position for 5 seconds, then relax. Do 3 sets of 10. •Partial curl: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your stomach muscles. Tuck your chin to your chest. With your hands stretched out in front of you, curl your upper body forward until your shoulders clear the floor. Hold this position for 3 seconds. Don't hold your breath. It helps to breathe out as you lift your shoulders up. Relax. Repeat 10 times. Build to 3 sets of 10. To challenge yourself, clasp your hands behind your head and keep your elbows out to the side. •Gluteal stretch: Lying on your back with both knees bent, rest the ankle of one leg over the knee of your other leg. Grasp the thigh of the bottom leg and pull that knee toward your chest. You will feel a stretch along the buttocks and possibly along the outside of your hip on the top leg. Hold this for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •Extension exercise: Lie face down on the floor for 5 minutes. If this hurts too much, lie face down with a pillow under your stomach. This should relieve your leg or back pain. When you can lie on your stomach for 5 minutes without a pillow, then you can continue with the rest of this exercise.

Infertility - Understanding the Reasons Behind it!

Female infertility is not really a rare condition, it happens to one out of six couples. Infertility is a condition in which a woman is unable to conceive despite efforts. There can be a number of causes for female infertility, including problems with ovulation, uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries. Age can also be a contributing factor to infertility. Following are the reasons that might be responsible for female infertility

  1. Ovulatory problems
  2. Damage of organs of reproductive system
  3. Pelvic inflammatory disease
  4. Scar tissues or adhesions of some sort
  5. Presence of polyps in the uterus
  6. A previous serious infection in the fallopian tubes or uterus
  7. Chronic medical illness relating to the reproductive system
  8. A previous ectopic pregnancy
  9. A birth defect in the uterus or fallopian tube
  10. The DES syndrome where in the infertility can occur to the offspring due to the medication DES is given to a mother in order to prevent miscarriage or premature of the child.
  11. Abnormal presence of cervical mucus can make it more difficult for sperms to reach the egg.

Treatment
Now that the part about the causes has been discussed, it is essential to discuss the treatment. Are there really ways to reverse infertility in women to make them fertile? Well, in some chronic cases it is not possible; however, some are treatable by the following methods:

  • In the case of hormone imbalance or endometriosis or short menstrual cycles, hormones are taken to treat the problems.
  • Medications can be taken to stimulate ovulations.
  • Fertility enhancing supplements can be used.
  • In case of infection in any of the reproductive parts, antibiotics can be taken to remove them
  • In order to remove blockage or scar tissues from the uterus, fallopian tube or pelvic area, minor surgeries can be performed.

Prevention
Yes, there are some tips for prevention of infertility

  • Taking all the steps required to avoid sexually transmitted diseases.
  • Avoid intake of illicit drugs
  • Having regular checkups with the gynaecologist
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle
  • Exercising regularly
  • Having a healthy sexual relationship

Advantages Of Gestational Surrogacy!

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery

Advantages Of Gestational Surrogacy!

IVF procedure is often used for surrogacy. Surrogacy is a process where a healthy woman’s womb is used for the proper development of the fetus from the time of fertilization till the time of birth. Surrogacy is divided into two parts, namely, traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy.

Traditional surrogacy is the process where the sperm of the father is introduced into the egg of the surrogate mother for the pregnancy. In such a case, the surrogate mother is also the biological mother of the resulting child. Gestational surrogacy is a process where a fertilized egg is introduced inside the surrogate mother. In such a surrogacy, the surrogate mother’s genes are not passed onto the child.

Gestational surrogacy is quite beneficial for the surrogate mother and can be the ideal choice for many. Here are a few of the advantages of gestational surrogacy.

  1. Reduction of risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer: Most people do not know that being a gestational surrogate mother can reduce your risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. This is because during the pregnancy, the body’s hormone levels spike quite substantially. These hormones also protect your body against cancer. Research has revealed that gestational surrogacy is the most effective against breast and ovarian cancer and may even help to reduce chances of other cancers.
  2. Improves heart muscles: A gestational surrogate mother has a lot of other benefits as well. One such benefit is the improvement of the cardiac muscles. The real reason for this change is not known, but researchers feel that any hormonal change during the pregnancy can be a cause. The improved functioning of the heart can be quite effective during a second pregnancy for the same mother.
  3. No healthcare costs: The intended parents of the surrogate child are liable to pay all the healthcare bills of the surrogate mother throughout the duration of the pregnancy. This means that the gestational surrogate mother does not have to worry about spending money in a bid to treat any adverse side effect of the pregnancy. Since the child will go to the intended parents after birth, they are liable to pay for all the medical costs.

However, no surrogate mother chooses surrogacy in order to receive these benefits. Instead, they opt for the procedure in a bid to do some good for the society and let the intended parents feel the joy of having children.

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