Yes, there are some side effects of anti-Thyroid meds. Merely having T3, T4, TSH normal is not enough. I would recommend a more comprehensive and Integrative management. It is not necessary to take Neo Mercazoke, Betanol lifelong. But your Thyroid status will have to be monitored long term.

Beta-hCG Test

Gynaecologist, Delhi
Play video

I am Dr Surekha Jain, I am practicing since last 38 years in Shalimar Bagh Delhi. And I am curtsy consultant to Shalimar Bagh Fortis hospital. Today I am going to talk about a very important hormone which is known as pregnancy hormone or beta HCG. Why it is called pregnancy hormone because this hormone beta HCG is the first hormone to increase and which can diagnose pregnancy very early. Why we should diagnose pregnancy very early, now days in a era of assistant reproductive techniques like IVF, ETSY, IUI etc. We want to know whether our patient is pregnant or not very early so that we can support her and we can give her certain medications which will help her to continue her pregnancy. This is a pregnancy hormone which starts as soon as when embryo is form that is 14 to 15 days after your ovulation or egg pick up. We can detect up to 100mIU’s of Beta HCG on the 14th day after ovulation, if pregnancy is occur. So to know the welfare of the pregnancy or to know first of all whether you are pregnant or not, we do your beta HCG. Anything about 10mIU/ML is taken as positive, it is just positive but to know whether the patient is doing fine or not, we can repeat this hormone every 48 to 72 hours that is every third day and it should almost double up every third day which shows that now the pregnancy is going fine and now we are assured. And we keep on following the patient. When the beta HCG levels they reach around 1000 to 1500 International unit the gynaecologist or your doctor should be able to see by Trans vaginal sonography at least sack. If she cannot see the sack at 1000 to 1500 International unit then there must be something wrong either blighted over or anything else. Now how can you test a beta HCG there are two methods to test beta HCG one is urine and other is blood, urine beta HCG is very simple to test anybody can test it at home. You can buy a simple strip from any chemist and then you can put fresh clean urine in the small socket formed on the slide 3 drops of fresh urine and wait for about 3 to 5 minutes. What you can see on the slide is either a one single line of about red or violet colour which shows that you are not pregnant but you have done your test alright. But if you see 2 parallel lines of equal strength you are happy because indicates that you are pregnant and your pregnancy is fine. But in case you don't see any of the lines, it shows that you have not done that test correctly or you are suffering from some severe urinary tract infection or your urine is very diluted. You have taken it after lot of consumption of water or some liquids. So Urine Pregnancy Test is very easy the drawback with Urine Pregnancy Test is it just tells you that you are pregnant, it doesn't tell you what will happen or what time of the pregnancy it is. Now the second method to test beta HCG is blood, it's very important definitive and very good test to know about the conception and its progress and the time of weeks. So if you get your blood beta HCG done in your blood as I told you anything about 10mIU/ML is positive test and then you follow it every third day to find out that it becomes double or not and then when it is about 1000mIU/ML then it should be seen in the trans vaginal sonography. What is the use of this hormone, why this hormone is there it is with some purpose the purpose of this particular hormone is that when you conceive and after just fertilizations 8 to 10 days after fertilization the embryo goes and implants in the uterus and there it is formed by the plasanta, this sends a message to the ovary that corpus luteum has to keep on working because corpus luteum give the hormone progesterone which is very-very necessary for the pregnancy. Now once the corpus luteum is giving progesterone and gradually the plasanta develops. When the plasnta develops it takes so what the corpus luteum, see the nature's method tell the Corpus luteum to maintain the corpus luteum in pregnancy the beta HCG is keep on increasing till 8 to 10 weeks it is the highest it around 10 weeks its level is about 100, 1000 international unit but as soon as the plasnka takes over the work of making progesterone corpus luteum is no more required. And hence the beta HCG also keeps on reducing and it makes effective Plateau at around 20 weaks its only 20000 then it goes to Plateau and it remains at the same level till full top. Beta HCG other than telling you about the welfare of the pregnancy has certain other many important jobs to do. First of all if your beta HCG is not corresponding with the weeks of pregnancy shown in your lab report, it shows that either your pregnancy is not progressing well or you might be having ectopic pregnancy that is your pregnancy might be other than the in the uterus. It can be it outside the uterus which is very dangerous for the health of the patient. Second it shows if it is very high it shows either you are having multiple pregnancy or some pregnancy related cancers which are known as trophoblastic disease of the pregnancy. Which are also again very dangerous and followed by beta HCG test and thirdly this test is also done to know about the welfare of the foetus in the first trimester of your pregnancy that is known as double marker. So it's a very-very important hormone and is related to all the pregnancy welfares, miscarriages, blighted ovum, ectopic, twins, cancer-related pregnancy that's all, ok.

Fertility And Infertility

Sexologist, Hyderabad
Fertility And Infertility

Fertility is the ability to conceive and have children. Most of us take our fertility for granted but the process of reproduction is complex and sometimes couples experience difficulties when they try to have a baby.

If you are planning to have a baby there are some things you and your partner can do to improve your chance of conceiving and having a healthy baby.

Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after 12 months or more of unprotected intercourse. About one in nine couples experience fertility difficulties. There are many reasons for this, some relating to the male partner and some to the female partner. If you suspect an infertility problem , talk to your Sexologist, infertility specialist who will guide you through the steps of an infertility investigation.

For people who have been diagnosed with cancer, fertility preservation is an important consideration if there is a chance that their cancer treatment may affect their fertility. 

Increasingly, fertility preservation is now also being used for non-medical purposes. Egg freezing for social reasons has seen a rise in demand in recent years.

Suspecting infertility

Most people take their fertility for granted and do not expect to have problems conceiving. However, one in nine couples experience fertility difficulties.

What to do if you suspect a problem

If you have been trying to conceive for a year or more, it is time to seek medical advice. If you are over 35, you should see a doctor if you have been trying to conceive for six months or more.

The first point of contact should be your general practitioner (GP) who will start an infertility investigation. This involves a detailed medical history and a physical examination of both partners and some basic tests to make sure that the woman is ovulating and that the man produces sperm. If everything seems in order, your GP may advise you to keep trying for a little longer before consulting a fertility specialist. However, if your test results indicate a problem, your doctor will refer you to a fertility specialist without delay. The fertility specialist will do more tests to establish the cause of infertility and determine the type of treatment  you may need. 

Causes of infertility

There are many reasons why pregnancy does not occur. About one third of infertility cases are due to male factors and one third due to female factors. Sometimes both partners have a fertility problem. In about 20 per cent of cases, there is no apparent cause of infertility, so called unexplained or idiopathic infertility. As more couples delay childbearing age-related infertility is becoming more common.

Dealing with infertility

A diagnosis of infertility often comes as a shock. It is unexpected and unwelcome and emotionally challenging. Unlike other adverse life events, which may have a clear resolution, infertility is uniquely distressing because it can last for many years and the outcome is uncertain. Some people find it helpful to discuss their feelings with a psychologist or counsellor. Others feel better if they take action by starting treatment.

What to do next

Once the cause of infertility has been pin-pointed, your doctor will discuss treatment options with you. These will vary depending on the cause of infertility but will most likely involve some form of assisted reproductive treatment . You need a referral from your GP to see a fertility specialist. Your GP may recommend a fertility specialist, unless you have a preference for a particular ART clinics or individual fertility specialist.

The chance of ART treatment working has greatly improved since the late seventies when the first IVF baby was born. Although your chance of having a baby with ART depends largely on factors that are beyond your control, there are some things that you can do to improve the odds. The lifestyle factors that influence the chance of natural conception for both men and women also affect your chance of ART success.

Understanding reproduction

It is useful to understand how eggs and sperm are normally formed, and how conception occurs to understand the causes of infertility and how they are targeted in ART.

The hormones which control the production of sperm and eggs are called gonadotrophins. There are two types of gonadotrophins: follicle-stimulating hormone (FSA) and luteinising hormone (LH). In men, they stimulate the testicles to produce sperm and testosterone. In women, they act on the ovaries, where the eggs develop. The female sex hormones, oestrogen and progesterone, are produced by the ovaries when eggs mature and are released (ovulation).

The production of sex hormones and the release of an egg is known as the menstrual cycle. It is counted from the first day of the period until the day before the start of the next period. In an average cycle of 28 days, ovulation happens on day 14. However, 

And it is important to note that ovulation occurs earlier in women with shorter cycles and later in women with longer cycles.

Your fertility and timing 

  • Sperm are produced at the rate of about 300 million per day. They take some 80 days to mature. Each sperm has a head, which contains the genetic material, and a tail, which propels it up through the vagina, uterus, and Fallopian tubes where the
  • Conception occurs when an egg and a sperm come together. At ovulation, an egg is released from the ovary into the fallopian tube. If sperm is present at that time, the egg can be fertilised. The fertilised egg then starts to divide and becomes an embryo. After ovulation, the ovary produces progesterone which prepares the lining of the uterus - the endometrium - for the growing embryo. If an embryo does not form or attach to the endometrium (implantation), the level of progesterone drops and the next period starts.
  • A few days after implantation, the embryo starts to produce Human Chorionic Gonadotrophins (HCG) - the hormone that gives a positive pregnancy test reading.

3 Ways You Can Treat Ectopic Pregnancy!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics & Gynecology, Fellowship in Infertility (IVF Specialist)
Gynaecologist, Aurangabad
3 Ways You Can Treat Ectopic Pregnancy!

An ectopic pregnancy takes place in the case when the completely fertilized egg attaches itself to a place instead of the inner side of the uterus. Ectopic pregnancy is also called tubal pregnancy because in most cases, it takes place in the Fallopian tube. Usually, the Fallopian tubes are not responsible for holding an embryo which keeps on growing. Hence, the egg has no scope to develop in the Fallopian tube. This problem must be treated as soon as possible to avoid further complications.

Here are several ways of treating ectopic pregnancy.

  1. Expectant management: In case you are not experiencing any symptoms of pregnancy or the pregnancy cannot be found, close observation is required. This is known as expectant management. You should conduct regular blood tests and follow them up in order to detect, whether the hCG level in your blood is ascending or descending. You are likely to have vaginal bleeding. Use pads and towels instead of tampons. Pain in your tummy is also indicated.
  2. Proper medication: In case ectopic pregnancy is detected at an early stage and constant monitoring is not suitable for you, a medicine by the name of methotrexate can be used for treatment. The medicine stops this pregnancy from developing. It is usually injected into your buttocks. Regular blood tests must be carried out to know how the treatment is taking shape on your condition. Trusted contraception measures should be taken for three months following the treatment as methotrexate is very harmful for an infant in case you become pregnant. Keep away from alcohol, as the combination of methotrexate with alcohol is harmful to the liver.
  3. Surgical means: The most common mode of surgery for removing ectopic pregnancy during an early stage is laparoscopy or keyhole surgery. While a laparoscopy is carried out, you will be in a state of anesthesia. A narrow tube or the laparoscope is inserted through surgical cuts in the tummy. The Fallopian tube which had the ectopic pregnancy is totally removed in case the other Fallopian tube is functioning well. Else the pregnancy has to be somehow removed without cutting off the Fallopian tube. Removal of the Fallopian tube is the best remedy for treating ectopic pregnancy and getting pregnant again is also possible. It takes a normal woman almost six weeks to recover after the surgery. Laparotomy is another kind of surgery carried out to repair a ruptured Fallopian tube.

Pregnancy & Thyroid - How They Are Interdependent?

MBBS, MD - Paediatrics, FRACP - Pediatrc Endocrinology, SCE, Endocrinology
Endocrinologist, Kanpur
Pregnancy & Thyroid - How They Are Interdependent?

It is important for you to know how pregnancy affects your thyroid gland. The thyroid hormone plays an important role during pregnancy in the development of the baby and also regarding the health of the mother. If you suffer from thyroid problems during pregnancy, you should take medicines and certain thyroid function tests.

How pregnancy affects normal thyroid function?
The pregnancy hormones known as human chorionic gonadotropin or hCG and estrogen lead to increased thyroid hormone levels in your blood. The hCG made by the placenta stimulates the thyroid to produce excessive hormones. Increased estrogen leads to higher levels of the thyroxine binding globulin, which transports the thyroid hormone in the blood.

Because of these normal hormonal changes, thyroid function tests are difficult to perceive during pregnancy. The thyroid hormone is very important for the normal development of a baby’s nervous system and brain. During the first trimester of pregnancy, the foetus depends on the supply of thyroid from the mother via the placenta.

In healthy women, the thyroid enlarges during pregnancy. An enlarged thyroid can indicate a thyroid disease, which should be diagnosed immediately. Thyroid problems are difficult to diagnose during pregnancy because of the increased hormone levels, increased thyroid size, fatigue and other factors.

Hyperthyroidism in pregnancy
Hyperthyroidism may occur in pregnancy because of Graves’ disease where enough thyroid hormones are not produced. Graves’ disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks the cells and organs of the body instead of fighting bacteria or viruses. With Graves’ disease, an antibody is released by the immune system called the thyroid stimulating immunoglobulin or TSI. This causes the thyroid gland to produce excess thyroid hormone. In many cases, the antibody is also associated with eye problems like bulging, irritation and puffiness. Graves’ disease commonly appears during pregnancy, but women with this disease from before may actually observe improvements in the symptoms during the second and third pregnancy trimesters. The remission or the disappearance of the symptoms of Graves’ disease may occur due to the general suppression of the immune system, which occurs during early pregnancy. The disease is likely to recur and worsen in a few months after the delivery. It is important for pregnant women with Graves’ disease to be monitored carefully.

Hypothyroidism during pregnancy may lead to a developmental delay in the child. Sometimes, hormone therapy is given to women who are at the borderline stage in thyroid function during pregnancy or just before pregnancy. The treatment of the condition aims at maintaining a proper and balanced thyroid hormone level in the body.

Screening For Chromosomal Abnormalities In First Trimester - Why It Is Important?

Gynaecologist, Delhi
Screening For Chromosomal Abnormalities In First Trimester - Why It Is Important?

First-trimester screening is a prenatal test. It is conducted to get early information about a baby's risk of certain chromosomal conditions. It can detect conditions like Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and extra sequences of chromosome 18 (Trisomy 18).

It is usually conducted in two steps:

  1. Blood test
  2. Followed by USG

Initially, a blood test is conducted to ascertain the levels of two pregnancy specific substances in the mother's blood. The blood is tested for pregnancy associated plasma protein and human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). Thereafter, a USG is done to find out the size of the clear space in the tissue that is present at the back of the foetus’s neck.

The screening is done between weeks 11 and 14 of pregnancy. The doctor is able to gauge the risk of your baby having Down syndrome or Trisomy 18 by using your age and results of the test. This screening is quite helpful and can guard you against deadly consequences in the future. Down syndrome is known to cause impairments in the mental and social development of the child. Trisomy 18 gets often fatal by age 1. However, first screening doesn’t find out the risk of neural tube defects.

It is the first screening done in pregnancy. It can be done before any other screening. Thus, the results are known at an early stage. You will get time to think about the future consequences can help you in deciding your course of action and the decision to either continue or terminate the pregnancy. You will be ready to know and decide whether you will be able to live and take care of a baby with special needs. You can conduct other screenings later in pregnancy. You must know that first-trimester screening is treated as being optional. It can detect the risk and cannot tell you whether your baby has the problems in real or not.

Often women get worried about the test and it’s after effects. However, there is no need to worry. It will not harm your pregnancy. The foetus remains untouched and safe during the screening. It will not lead to any miscarriage or any other complication.

A practitioner will collect your blood by inserting a needle into your veins. The blood is then sent for testing to the lab. You can resume your usual daily activities. The ultrasound will need you to lie on your back on a table and the technician will put a transducer on your abdomen. The sound waves will be changed into digital images that the technician will refer to. You can get back to your normal routine as soon as the test is over.

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