Yes side effects of contraceptive is more and it will lead to weight again and in future problem in conceiving .But if you have one baby you can use Copper T and it is safer . Use it till you want the next baby . Or if it is not that you still have the first baby and need protection for some time use pessaries or condom

Dear, do not drink aloe vera juice during monthly periods. Also stop drinking before 7 days from your coming date of monthly cycle of periods. Because it can increase your bleeding during periods.

Importance of exercise during pregnancy.
Having a baby? Congratulations.

How do you feel? Excited/overwhelmed/terrified?
Needn't worry, just relax.

At natal wise learn to relax and stretch with trimester appropriate exercises which will help you cope with ever-growing body with baby in your womb.
Pre-natal exercises are an important aspect of your months of pregnancy.

Pregnant and active! well why not?
=pre-natal stretching helps you ease your stiff joints and muscles (esp. Abdomninal muscles to accommodate to your growing baby) and also any aches and pains that are common on the joints and ligaments.
=exercises will strengthen your joints
=stretches with breathing techniques helps in increasing the oxygen level to the baby and also increases the blood circulation to all parts of the body.
=helps you sleep better
=regular 1 hour of exercises helps ward off gestational diabetes, high blood pressure and keeps all your stats in control.
= helps you re-gain your pre-pregnancy shape.
=makes you feel good and helps in keeping the skin glowing with blood circulation.

Imp: during pregnancy do not exercise on your own by watching dvds or you-tube, always exercise under a supervision of a certified child-birth educator who can guide you the right kind of exercise fort each individual specification.

JOINT DISORDERS
Joint Disorders
A ‪#‎joint‬ is where two or more bones come together, like the ‪#‎knee‬, ‪#‎hip‬, ‪#‎elbow‬, or ‪#‎shoulder‬. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or ‪#‎diseases‬, including
1. ‪#‎Arthritis‬ - inflammation of a joint. It causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. Over time, the joint can become severely damaged.
2. ‪#‎Bursitis‬ - inflammation of a fluid-filled sac that cushions the joint.
3. ‪#‎Dislocations‬ - injuries that force the ends of the ‪#‎bones‬ out of position
Treatment of ‪#‎JointProblems‬ depends on the cause. If you have a ‪#‎SportsInjury‬, treatment often begins with the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) method to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed healing. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery. For arthritis, injuries, or other diseases, you may need joint replacement surgery to remove the damaged joint and put in a new one.

Preejaculation semen does contain sperm, however without knowing your last periods date its difficult to comment upon the chances of pregnancy. Hwever, the symptoms you mention are not pregnancy symptoms.

If her pregnancy is without any complications you can continue your sex life as long as both of you are comfortable and in a mood to do it. Doing acrobatics or trying different positions or using lubes or other gels or vibrators may not be a good idea right now.

Don't worry. These problems are due to extreme sensitivity to the hormonal changes during periods. You must have an exercise schedule on a daily basis. That will raise the pain threshold, so the pain during cycles will be more bearable. Excess salty foods, chips, acidic foods, colas, and fried foods can increase the sensitivity and should be avoided or minimised. Water intake should be increased. Use a hot water bottle during the cramps tightly against the lower stomach. Flaxseed oil, ginseng, fish oils are recommended since they are anti- inflammatory. But cost and availability are the concerns here. Stress can be managed with regular sleep, low fat diet and daily exercise (30 mins walking/jogging), swimming, cycling, badminton or tennis. If still there is no response, visit a doctor for check up and medicines.

You are underweight it appears. You are on anti-tubercular drugs. Although most of these drugs are safe during pregnancy, except the streptomycin group, you are still not in an absolutely healthy condition. Complete physical, mental and psychological well being is important before you get pregnant. Just ask yourself the question, will pregnancy improve my present health status? If you have the slightest doubt, then wait. Now if you get pregnant by chance or due to failure of contraception, you have to sit with your gynecologist to decide how best to proceed. Termination of pregnancy due to ATT is no longer necessary. Only be sure to check your liver functions if you are taking isoniazid. Additional B vitamins may be prescribed. Rest all will continue as normal.

Maybe you're just really eager to get pregnant, or maybe you want your baby's birth to happen at a specific time. Please note that you can not predict a time frame and sometimes it takes time to conceive. Have patience and here are some tips which can help: Tip #1: The biggest secret to getting pregnant faster is knowing when you ovulate (release an egg from your ovary). Think of the egg as a bull's-eye and the sperm as arrows. One of the arrows has to hit the bull's-eye in order for you to get pregnant. If you notice that you have irregular periods over the course of several months, pinpointing ovulation could be difficult. Ask your doctor for advice. Tip #2: Once you know when your egg will be released from your ovary, you can plan to have sex during your most fertile days: from three days before ovulation through the day of ovulation. (Starting a little sooner can't hurt; some women have gotten pregnant from sex that happened six days before they ovulated.) If you have a regular cycle of 28 days, days 12 to 16 days are said to be a woman's most fertile period counting from the first day of cycle. Tip #3: Sperm have their best shot at fertilizing an egg when they're healthy, strong, and plentiful. Several things can help your partner get his sperm supply in fighting shape: - Cut back on alcohol (studies show that drinking daily can reduce testosterone levels and sperm counts and raise the number of abnormal sperm) - Quit tobacco and recreational drugs (these can cause poor sperm function) - Eat enough of certain key nutrients – like zinc, folic acid, calcium, and vitamins C and D – that help create plentiful, strong, wiggly sperm - Avoid hot tubs, saunas, and hot baths, since heat kills sperm.

Miscarriage and Tips to Ensure a Healthy Conception

Miscarriage and Tips to Ensure a Healthy Conception

 

Miscarriage refers to a pregnancy that has ended prematurely, within 20 weeks. Research shows that around 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies end in miscarriages. Chemical pregnancies cause 50-75% of all miscarriages. The condition happens when a pregnancy is lost not long after implantation, bringing about bleeding that happens around the time of her normal period. The woman may not understand that she has conceived when she encounters a chemical pregnancy.

The normal period where miscarriages are expected to occur is during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. While pregnancy can be an overwhelming and exciting experience, it is beneficial that the woman keeps herself informed about the possibilities of miscarriages.

Some types of miscarriage are:

  • Threatened Miscarriage
  • Inevitable or Incomplete Miscarriage
  • Complete Miscarriage
  • Missed Miscarriage
  • Recurrent Miscarriage
  • Blighted Ovum
  • Ectopic Pregnancy
  • Molar Pregnancy

Symptoms:
In case of any of the following signs, the doctor should be consulted immediately,

  • Mild to Severe Pain
  • White-Pink Mucus
  • Weight Loss
  • True Contractions
  • Sudden Decrease in Signs of pregnancy
  • Tissue made of clot-like material passing from the vagina
  • Bright red or Brown bleeding with or without cramps
  • Investigations

Ultrasound:

  • The majority of women will require a transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) and 98% of complete miscarriages can be diagnosed in this way.
  • If a transvaginal ultrasound scan is unacceptable to the woman, then a transabdominal ultrasound scan should be offered and the woman should be made aware of the limitations of this method of scanning.
  • If there is no visible heartbeat then a second scan should be performed. This is either done at a minimum of 7 or 14 days, depending up the measurements of the crown-rump length or the mean gestational sac.
  • Be aware that a woman with a pregnancy of unknown location may have an ectopic pregnancy.
  • Serum hCG
  • Serum hCG tests can help to exclude an ectopic pregnancy in women with a complete miscarriage (or pregnancy of unknown location), determined by ultrasound.
  • Serial tests are required but results should complement clinical assessment and not replace it. Two tests are taken as close as possible to 48 hours apart:
  • >63% increase suggests ongoing pregnancy.
  • >50% decrease suggests pregnancy is unlikely to continue.
  • A woman with results between these parameters should be reviewed in the EPAU withing 24 hours.
  • Slow doubling times are associated with miscarriage and declining values have high sensitivity of 93-97% in diagnosing a complete miscarriage[1].
  • Rare causes of a raised hCG should also be borne in mind, including gestational trophoblastic disease or cranial germ cell tumour, which must be considered.

Progesterone

One meta-analysis has shown that a single low progesterone measurement for women in early pregnancy, presenting with bleeding or pain and inconclusive ultrasound assessments, can rule out a viable pregnancy. However, a very low serum progesterone can be seen in normal viable pregnancies, so progesterone should not be used as the definitive diagnostic test without other evidence.

Management

  • Admission to hospital can be avoided in 40% of women with threatened or actual early pregnancy loss.
  • Following a miscarriage, all women should have access to support, follow-up and formal counselling when necessary.
  • Anti-D rhesus prophylaxis (250 IU) should be offered to all rhesus-negative women who have a surgical procedure to manage a miscarriage.
  • However, anti-D rhesus prophylaxis does not have to be given to those women who:
  • Receive solely medical management for an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage.
  • Have a threatened miscarriage.
  • Have a complete miscarriage.
  • Have a pregnancy of unknown location.
  • Women need evidence-based information to guide their decisions, as well as access to support and counselling; leaflets, web addresses and helpline numbers for support organisations should be offered to all women experiencing miscarriage.
  • There is no evidence to support a couple delaying attempts to conceive following a miscarriage.

Treatment:

The main purpose of treatment is to prevent haemorrhage and infection. It is common that the body expels all the fetal fluid during the earlier stages of the pregnancy. In case it doesn t, a procedure known as D&C (Dilution & Curettage) is performed to remove the fluid and prevent infection.

Since most miscarriages occur due to chromosomal abnormalities, nothing significant can be done to prevent them.

Tips to be taken to ensure a healthy conception are:

  • Regular Exercise
  • Stress Management
  • Daily consumption of folic acid
  • Not smoking
