C-Section - Are There Risks Associated With it?

C-Section - Are There Risks Associated With it?

When the delivery of a baby has to happen through a surgical process rather than normal child birth, the procedure is known as a Caesarean Section or a C-section. There are many reasons why one many need to go through this surgical procedure including complications during pregnancy and childbirth. One can also plan for a C-section beforehand by talking it through with a doctor who will recommend the same in case there are any complications and risks at play during the pregnancy. Read on to know more about the procedure.

Reasons: There are many reasons why a doctor may want to go in for a C-section. If the labour is not progressing properly, then a C-section may be required in order to extract the baby. This procedure may also be used in case the baby is not getting proper amount of oxygen which can put it in distress and lead to changes in the heartbeat. Also, if the baby is in an abnormal position like a breech position, then a C-section may be required. This procedure is also used when a woman is carrying twins or triplets. Other health concerns like high blood pressure and genital herpes or even HIV can lead to this procedure. Any mechanical obstruction like fibroids in the birth canal can also cause the doctor to resort to a C-section, while a patient who has delivered via C-section earlier may also be asked to do the same again.

Risks and complications: One has to remember that a C-section takes longer to recover from than normal childbirth and delivery would. Also, it does pose a few risks and complications that may arise during and after the procedure.

  1. Breathing issues: The babies who are born via C-section are more susceptible to a condition known transient tachypnea which is a breathing problem characterised by an abnormally fast rate of breathing in and out. Also, other respiratory distress syndromes may take over subsequently.
  2. Surgical injuries: The doctor may accidentally nick the baby’s skin during the surgical process which involves the use of sharp instruments for making the incision.
  3. Inflammation risk: The uterus may undergo inflammation which may also lead to endometriosis as well as infections of the membrane which can cause fever and foul smelling vaginal discharge. The wound may also get infected.
  4. Bleeding: While some amount of bleeding is normal, this procedure can also lead to excessive bleeding in which case immediate medical intervention may be required. Also, the patient may suffer from blood clots inside the veins of the pelvic organs. These clots may also travel to the lungs and cause further complications. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

You need to get a Pelvic USG and a hormonal assay done- TSH ,FSH ,LH ,Prolactin to see the reason for delayed periods. For white discharge I would advice you to take Cansoft-CL vaginal pessaries- insert in vagina for 3 consecutive nights and see if it helps.

The causes and treatment of male infertility

Hello viewers. I am Doctor Rahul Reddy from Androcare Andrology Institute. I am microsurgical Andrologist. Today I am going to discuss about male infertility problems. Why a patient a male patient with low sperm count has to go for ICSI procedure. So there is treatment for male infertility. At least 40% of the patients without any major treatment, they can improve. And another 30% of patients with minimal procedure, they can come back to normalcy. The reason for sperm count going down is Lifestyle issues, hormonal imbalance and obstructions, because of the infections and prosthetic and seminal vesicle infections. What happens in Lifestyle, we don't sleep properly, we don't do workouts, the testosterone will go down.

When testosterone goes down it suppress the sperm count, the ejaculate volume the semen volume will go down and the penetrating capacity of the sperm is also low when your testosterone is low. So we have to change your lifestyle to improve our sperm count. Second common cause for a low sperm count is infections. A male genital tract if you understand that there is testis and there is a sperm tube and from the sperm tube there is a small cement reservoir which is called seminal vesicle and from there whenever a male ejaculate, the semen comes out into the urine passage then it comes out. So in these practice in this complete track wherever there is infection sperm can get affected so whenever we see a patient with low motility the common cause is epididymal infection and these are easily treatable.

So if you start treatment in early days we can completely make this patient normal. The third part is the semen tube. If the semen tube is blocked then it is difficult to treat. The fourth part is the semen reservoir. Why we call it a seminal vesicle? The prostate and seminal vesicle, they produce the white colour fruit which is in the semen. So most of the times we see patients has zero sperm count but he ejaculate. But what they ejaculate is the fluid from the prostate or seminal vesicle which is where there is no sperm inside. So this sperm tube is directly connected to your urine Pathways and the seminal vesicle with the semen reservoir is closely associated with the rectum which is a motion pipe.

So what happens is if there is a infection in urine pipe? This infection can enter the prostate or seminal vesicle and then it can cause severe infection. But why I say severe infections because these most of these infections are silent infections. If you know that there is an infection or there is any pain you can go to doctor. You will go to your doctor and get it treated but most of the time these infections are silent. Whenever a patient comes to us with low sperm count, then we do Semen analysis, we do semen culture, we find out what the kind of infection they have, kind of the bacteria they have and then we have to start treating these patients but only catch in these patients is they need long-term antibiotics and unlike urinary tract infections. So generally in urinary tract will give antibiotics for four five days but inseam infections you need antibiotics for 15 to 20 days. So don't get worried about male infertility. Nowadays 80%, up to 80% of patients with male infertility they can have normal count, normal improvement.

So if you have low sperm count go and see your local urologisy and he will help you in this matter. If you are not getting result you can reach me on lybrate.

If baby's size is more in 9th month then what to do for normal delivery and what to eat to keep size ok?
Don't blindly run after the normal delivery. Safety of the baby is more important than normal delivery. I am sorry to say but who wants a baby with problems after normal delivery. So keep on eating healthy diet don't starve yourself else baby might develop severe issues.

Dear user. Inflammation of the vaginal area can occur because of poor hygiene but is often a result of infection in or around the vagina. A common infection that can cause vaginal odor is overgrowth of the normal vaginal bacteria to cause bacterial vaginosis. The sexually transmitted disease trichinosis can cause vaginal odor. I suggest you to consult a gynecologist for treatment. Take care.

Health Benefits Of Sitting On The Floor While Eating!

Diploma in Diet,Health & Nutritions

Health Benefits Of Sitting On The Floor While Eating!

Health benefits of sitting on the floor while eating:

 1. Improves digestion

Sitting on the floor in a cross-legged position and eating your food is good for your digestive system.
The back-and-forth movement of bending forward to eat and returning to your natural sitting position helps abdominal muscles secrete digestive juices, which are needed for quick and proper digestion.
Plus, this sitting position allows the mind to calm down and applies pressure to the lower spine, which facilitates relaxation. Also, muscular tension releases and high blood pressure comes down.

2. Increases life span

Regularly standing up from a seated position on the floor without needing a hand can also help you live longer.
A 2012 study published in the european journal of preventive cardiology reports that the ability to stand up from a seated position on the floor without using any support correlates with a longer life expectancy.
According to the study, getting up from sitting position requires considerable flexibility and body strength, which are needed to avoid common accidents, injuries and falls.
If a person has difficulty standing up from a sitting position, he or she is 6.5 times more likely to die within the next six years. Study participants ranged in age from 51 to 80 years.

3. Improves strength and flexibility

Sitting on the floor in a cross-legged position also makes your body stronger and more flexible.
This sitting position stretches the hips, knees and ankles. It also increases flexibility throughout the spine, shoulders and chest, thus making you more flexible and able to ward off certain diseases.
This strength and flexibility helps you stand upright without slouching, as well as pick up heavy objects without hurting your back.
On the other hand, sitting in a chair for hours leads to weak, tight and sore lower back; weak abdominal muscles; and stiff, inflexible and aching hips, to name only a few.

4. Supports correct body posture

Good posture is important for reducing excessive strain on certain muscles and joints, especially the back and neck.
By sitting cross-legged on the floor for eating, you are automatically correcting your posture.
When you sit on the floor in the sukhasana pose, you need to keep your back straight, expanding your spine and pushing the shoulders back. This posture helps prevent all kinds of aches and pains that are caused by bad posture.
On the other hand, sitting on a chair or couch and hunching over your desk and computer for most of the day can lead to poor posture and a weak lower back.

5. Improves blood circulation

Sitting cross-legged to eat your food is also beneficial for your circulatory system.
When sitting on the floor, blood pumps more easily through the heart to other parts of the body, as opposed to sitting on a chair with your feet further below your heart level. Also, sitting on the floor leads to a healthier heart by reducing the excess pressure on it while eating.
Good blood circulation ensures that all the body’s organs get the essential nutrients to function properly. For people with circulatory problems, sitting on the floor while eating is highly recommended.

6. Aids weight loss

When you sit down and eat, it has a calming effect on your mind and body. A calm body is better able to focus on the food you’re eating, which in turn prevents overeating.
This happens because the vagus nerve performs better and transmits signals more efficiently in this position. It is the vagus nerve that transmits signals from the stomach to the brain as you eat, telling your brain whether or not your stomach is full.
Moreover, this sitting position makes you eat slower. This gives your stomach and brain enough time to recognize when you are full.
Plus, the act of sitting and standing up from the floor is good exercise. All these factors together aid in managing your body weight.

7. Promotes family bonding

Last but not least, sitting on the floor to eat your dinner or lunch with family can give you a brand new way to connect with your family members.
Also, when you are sitting at the same level with your children, it is simply easier to connect with them and learn about their feelings and emotions.
You can make sitting on the floor to eat a family ritual to improve family bonds. Also, the posture relaxes the body and mind, which is important to lead a stress-free life.

Artificial Insemination - Are there Any Risks Associated with it

Artificial Insemination - Are there Any Risks Associated with it

These days, infertility is a rising problem. The branch of gynaecology has successfully discovered a variety of procedures, which are helpful in conceiving in an artificial manner. These are known as Artificial Reproductive Techniques (ARTs). Artificial insemination is one of them. It is often termed as intrauterine insemination, which is used as an effective treatment of infertility worldwide.

This process helps the couple in conceiving by inserting the sperm directly into the womb of the woman.  These days, most of the couples who are unable to conceive prefer to go through this process rather than going for adoption. One of the major reasons behind the immense popularity of this treatment procedure is its good success record.

There are several risks associated with this process that one should know before opting for this procedure for having a baby of their own.

  1. Multiple births because of fertility medication: When the process of artificial insemination is carried out by using the fertility medication, there are immense chances that the mother gives birth to more than one child at a time. It can be twins or even triplets. The problem associated with multiple births is that it might contribute to complications like miscarriage or premature delivery. In case of multiple births, babies are usually not healthy and they are more prone to die in the first week of birth, which is very unfortunate for the parents. Gestational diabetes is also one of the consequences that can affect the mother during pregnancy.

  2. Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome: It is not a common issue, but potentially a very serious complication. In some cases, the ovaries of a woman get swollen because of the fertility medication given during the artificial insemination process. Swelling causes symptoms like nausea, abdominal cramps, vomiting and bloating. Usually, the symptoms of OHSS include shortness of breath and chest pain that occur four to five days after the use of fertility medication. One should immediately contact the doctor, in case they notice similar kinds of symptoms during their fertility treatment.

In most of the cases when the doctor is unable to figure out the reason behind the infertility of a couple, the only alternative they suggest is the process of artificial insemination. Artificial insemination is quite an affordable and non-invasive method fertility treatment, which is preferred by thousands of couples every year. There are certain risks in this medical process and it is recommended to consult an expert gynaecologist.

What is oral contraceptive pills? How to use it? Advantages and disadvantages? Is I pills and OCPills same?

MBBS, FAACS(USA)
Sexologist, Ahmedabad
What is oral contraceptive pills? How to use it? Advantages and disadvantages? Is I pills and OCPills same?
Oral contraceptive pills act by interrupting the ovulation (release of the egg), thus creating an anovulatory cycle. It takes at least one ‘pill cycle’ for annovulation to get established. Hence, during the first cycle, one must use an alternative method of contraception. If the woman forgets to take the pill at the usual time and remembers the lapse on the same day, she should take the scheduled pill on the same day, as soon as she remembers it. If the woman forgets to take ‘the pill’ for one day and remembers so only on the next day, she should take two pills on that day i.e. The ‘forgotten pill’ of the previous day, in addition to the scheduled pill for the day. If, however there is a lapse in taking pills for two consecutive days then the woman must consider herself ‘unprotected’ and adopt another method of contraception for the rest of the cycle. If the woman has a history of liver disease, abnormal liver function tests, steroid dependent cancer e.g. Breast cancer, abnormal uterine/vaginal bleeding or evidence of circulatory disease e.g. Thrombo-embolic disorders, hypertension and migraine, oral contraceptive pills are contraindicated. Other contraindications include diabetes, the first six months in the case of nursing mothers and epilepsy. However, a gynaecologist’s opinion should be sought prior to use.
