Take the controls in your hands. Have a reality check. Take the help of friends and relatives (parents and close relatives who understand you). If you are not able to handle it even after that then take the help of a counselor (Psychiatrist) and overcome your problem. Its always better to look at the larger and whole picture surrounding you and move on for a bright and healthy future.

Hello lybrate-user, firstly, stop smoking. It does cause contraction of the muscles and also causes acidity and heart burn. You can also take syp gelusil one tsp three times a day which will help in your symptoms. Drink luke warm water and mix a tsp of asafoetida in it. It will help relieve your symptoms.

Depression During Pregnancy - How Can You Manage it?

Depression During Pregnancy - How Can You Manage it?

Pregnancy is that wonderful and beautiful phase that most women rejoice about. However, many may find it hard to believe that pregnancy can bring with it a condition known as ‘antenatal depression’. This is a common condition in expecting mothers and should not be ignored.

Depression during pregnancy like regular depression is a clinical condition and requires further investigation and management. Pregnancy is related to the female hormones and therefore, mood swings are common (as during PMS and menopause). However, depressed pregnant women would typically have the following associated symptoms too.

  1. Altered eating habits

  2. Altered sleeping patterns (too much or too less)

  3. Loss of attention/ability to focus

  4. Losing interest in activities which usually interest the person

  5. Feeling very anxious

  6. Constant feeling of sadness

  7. Uncertainty about the future

  8. Feeling of worthlessness

  9. Suicidal tendencies

It has been noted about 25% of women can get depressed during pregnancy for varying periods of time. Some potential reasons for this are as below.

  1. Strained relationships: One of the most important factors for a healthy pregnancy is a happy relationship, not just with the partner, but with immediate and close family members with whom there is a high level of regular interaction.

  2. Work stress: For working women, a stressful office environment could take a toll on their moods.

  3. Previous miscarriages: This can cause anxiety and depression about possible repeat incident.

  4. Potential complications: If the periodic examinations showed up possibility for complications in pregnancy, the chance of depression in the mother increase.

How it affects pregnancy?

A depressed mother would not be able to care for herself and  therefore, the baby may not get adequate nutrition for its development. Additionally, the potential for nicotine and alcohol abuse increases, which also negatively impacts the baby’s growth. There could be low birth weight, premature birth and developmental delays after birth.

How it can be managed?

While the hormonal changes during pregnancy causes mood swings, diagnosing if it is depression is important. A consultation with a psychiatrist may be required for some women.

Some of the options available for treatment include support groups, individual counseling, and medications.

  1. It is important to understand that this is a common condition and you are not the only one going through this. Talking to other women who feel depressed can help in mood uplifting of all involved.

  2. If you are too shy about it, individual counseling could be the next best thing.

  3. Stress management including light exercise, music, meditation, rest, diet, and support from close friends and family are highly recommended.

  4. Since most antidepressants would reach the baby, it is advisable to avoid these less you need them as a last resort. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

She needs to be put on medicines for depression. Besides improving depression, antidepressants will have many different additional benefits like improving quality of life, reducing pain, improving other minor physical complaints that she may be having. I strongly recommend antidepressants for her.

Any addiction is harmful for the body and so is marijuana. Drink lots of water and fresh fruit and vegetable juices to clear the toxins from your body. Take good sleep for 8-10 hours and exercise for 1 hour atleast 3-4 days a week for a better life.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

It's been quite a long time that she is on medication. Try to change her life style. Engage her in some activity that interests her. Take her for walking, spiritual discourses. Encourage her to meet people and talk to them. Even gardening can help her if you have a garden at home. Talk to her and share her feelings.

Three years ago you were in late adolescence and obviously that it the last time some unresolved childhood issue will surface looking for a resolution. I feel that you need to go for counseling and explore what that issue is: I suspect from your description that it has to do with some rejection. The loss of affect may have to do with a defense against dealing with feelings. Kindly explore this with the counselor and you will find a lot of relief.

Please try to change the erratic habits to have a permanent solution. Focus on doing one thing at a time. Have a disciplined life and take care of your health. Drink lots of water and fluids (2-3 ltr) and include fruits and vegetables in daily diet so that you get sufficient fiber. Also exercise every day so that it will also correct your bowel habit naturally. Avoid junk food and any bad habits. You can take some laxative for a short period if it is difficult for you to pass stools.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.
