Things to Do Before Trying to Conceive Again After a Miscarriage

PG in Assisted Reproductive Technology, MD - Obstetrics & Gynaecology, DGO, MBBS

Things to Do Before Trying to Conceive Again After a Miscarriage

A miscarriage, though heart wrenching, does not imply the end of the world. Unless the miscarriage is an outcome of a serious health complication, there is nothing to lose heart. In fact, many women have had successful pregnancies even after a miscarriage. Barring a few exceptions, a miscarriage during the first pregnancy reduces the chance of a miscarriage during subsequent pregnancies significantly. However, it is best to get your doubts and apprehensions cleared before you try to conceive again. An experienced gynaecologist can assist and guide you better throughout the process.

  1. A lot of couples wonder about the right time to conceive after a miscarriage. Do not rush into things. Miscarriage can drain out a couple physically, mentally and emotionally. Give your mind and body some time to cope with the loss. Your decision to embrace parenthood should not be influenced by any undue and baseless pressure. Patience and perseverance will make the subsequent pregnancies less stressful. To avoid complications in your next pregnancy, it is best to wait 6 months to 1 year after a miscarriage.
  2. Do not indulge in sexual intercourse immediately after a miscarriage. This might result in immense pain and vaginal infections. If you experience any discomfort, share it with your partner and the physician concerned. Getting pregnant immediately after a miscarriage will do both the mother and the foetus no good.
  3. In case of two or more miscarriages, getting to the underlying cause becomes very important. Medical conditions such as Diabetes, Thyroid problems (Hyperthyroidism and Hypothyroidism), Obesity, Chromosomal aberrations or Infertility often interferes with pregnancy. With timely medical intervention, it is possible to have a healthy and safe pregnancy. To minimise the chances of a miscarriage, pregnant women are given Prenatal Vitamins (Folic Acid in particular).
  4. A pregnant lady should eat healthy and live healthy. The goodness of fruits and vegetables need no special mention. Regular consumption of fresh vegetables and fruits can do the mother and the developing foetus, a world of good. A healthy diet can lower the instances of a miscarriage greatly.
  5. Stress and anxiety are a big NO during pregnancy. Relax and try to be happy as much as possible. Go for small walks, read books, listen to music. Proper and sound sleep is extremely important. One can also indulge in light exercise. However, to be on a safer side, exercise under an expert supervision. If you have been to drinking and smoking, quit the unhealthy habits at the earliest.

A miscarriage should not push you into a state of depression. You can still have a normal pregnancy. Know your body well. Take the decision wisely only after a proper consultation with your physician.

I was suffering from pcod and after 3 months of medication my cysts have reduced. Now I have cysts on only one ovary. My husband is coming for 1 month. Can I become pregnant in one month and will I be fertile on 22 day of my cycle (my cycle is 30 days old)

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
Irrespective of cyst size and number, its more important to know how many days your last 3 cycles were, particularly those that came after all medication were stopped. From that we can come to the average days in each cycle, plus the range. This will help in formulating the'most fertile period' which will be quite specific in your case. Provided there are no other issues (after full investigation) spontaneous pregnancy is still possible.

Can an extremely skinny girl have pcos? As I m vry skinny and no symptoms of pcos but my ultrasound reports are showing it. I am 21 and my weight is 43k kgs.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Chandigarh
Being very thin does not rule out pcod. It is the hormonal imbalances that leads to improper ovulation and pcod. Yes it is more common in obese or overweight. It will depend on your usg report and competency of your radiologist to diagnose pcod in usg. It also depends whether you have following clinical features like oligomenorrhoea (delayed menses), signs of hyperandrogenism - acne, hirsutism, weight gain and polycystic ovaries in usg. You may get a repeat usg from another radiologist for confirmation. Also get an lh, fsh assay to confirm pcos. But if you do not have any of the above symptoms, pcos is less likely.

I am dietician Sheela Suhag Sherawat, Mentor Diet Clinic. We are in this field since 11 years. And have been consulting different people with the different medical issues with the different requirement different needs. Sirf hamare paas log sirf therapeutic consultation ke liye Nahi atay. It’s all about your proper all over nutrition and healthy diets.

To is me jaise for example mai aap ko batao gi jesay IT workers. It workers jab hamare paas apni problem leke aate hain. They are saying k they have very hectic schedule and irregular shifts and very eating wrong habits. Basically hame unko unki schedule k mutabiq we have to modify proper healthy diets. Tou usme humko consult kehte hain kya aapko apnay daily routine mein kya cheezain include kar sakte ho. Jaise ki aap apni jo daily routine key dietary habits hain us me thoda change kar sakte ho ya Jo apka lifestyle hai us me modiy kar saktay ho. Jaise first of all log jo ke IT workers hote hain unka main issue hota hai k. They are tend to eat in canteen. Canteen k liye sab se pehlay hum boltay hain k ap canteen se khanay ki bajaye apnay daily routine me habit dalo aik tiffin carry kar k le k jao. So that at least jo aik meal ap log jo lo gay wo apka healthy hoga. Second thing agar aap ke office me stairs hain to prefer karo k ap lift ki bajaye stairs ko use karo.

Third thing ki jaisay k issue hota hai k chalo aik normal human being even k humari bhi adat hti ha k hum kam kartay hain aur sath me khatay hain tou sab se pelkay humain es habit ko no bolna hoga because humain pta he nhe chalta while working k hum kitna kha rahay han aur kia kha rahay hain. To better hai k jo apka tiffin ya jo bhi ap aik meal le rahay ho proper table pe beth k plus usko proper time k sath apna gradually jo apki digestion hai usko nhi body me time dena chahiye because jitna ap fast khao gy utna apka indigestion create hoga. To better hai while working avoid eating. It workers ki sabse main problem hoti hai they tend to eat more junks.

Then basically me unko ye suggest karungi junk khao per uski time routine banao. Keep your junk at the weekend. Or you can say keep your junk and sweets for the weekend. Weekday par follow your healthy diet And weekends par you have whatever you want to eat. So that aap ki body bhi healthy Rahay gi Aur aap bhi healthy raho gy. And aik aur important point kay Keep hydrated yourself Kyunki aap kitne time pe Jitna frequently Ap pani piyoge Itni he working capacity aapki increase karegi. Aur plus you feel more energetic. Tou kam se kam I will say after every one hour take a break of one or two minutes you can say five minutes and have a glass of water. Wo aap ko fresh karay ga and you feel more comfortable and you feel more energetic and apka jo concentration ha ap k work level pe o zyada increase ho ga.

To yeh thae kuch aapke tips for IT workers.

For further queries you can just connect us via lybrate. You can contact us. You can call us or you can book your appointment as well.

Seems it is some kind of Vaginal Infection, take rest, maintain good Personal hygeine and drink lot of water, if it is delivery pain then none of these will help and your pain would increase, or else your pain will decline once the Infection gets over.

Glaucoma - The Silent Thief Of Vision!

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can lead to damage to the eye's optic nerve and result in blindness. Open-angle glaucoma, the commonest form of glaucoma, has no symptoms at first. However, over the years it can steal your sight. With early treatment, you can usually protect your eyes against serious vision loss and blindness. Most people over the age of 40 should have an annual eye check, which includes measurement of eye pressure and assessment of the optic nerve, this is more important if you have a family history of glaucoma.

Dear user. Vagina is a storehouse of many germs which could cause many diseases. You should understand that vagina cannot be cleaned completely. Therefore it is not advised to lick or suck vagina. Though you can always do that if you can ensure that it is perfectly clean and hygienic. Take care.

Depression in Hindi - अवसाद

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Depression in Hindi - अवसाद

अवसाद मनोदशा की एक आम लेकिन गंभीर अव्यवस्था है। यह सिर्फ उदास होने की भावना से ज्यादा है। कभी-कभार उदास महसूस करना स्वाभाविक है, लेकिन अगर यह उदास मूड दिन बाद दिन बना रहता है तो यह अवसाद का संकेत हो सकता है। प्रमुख अवसाद अन्य लक्षणों के साथ उदासी या उदासीनता का एक एपिसोड है, जो कम से कम लगातार दो सप्ताह तक रहता है और दैनिक गतिविधियों को बाधित करने के लिए काफी गंभीर है। 

यह गंभीर लक्षणों का कारण बनता है जो आप को सोचना, सोचते हैं, और दैनिक क्रियाकलापों को संभालते हैं, जैसे सोने, भोजन या काम करना। वास्तव में, एक अवसाद से पीड़ित व्यक्तिशायद ऐसा भी महसूस कर सकता है जैसे कि उसकी ज़िंदगी अब और जीने योग्य नहीं है।
अवसाद हल्का, मध्यम या गंभीर हो सकता है। कुछ विशिष्ट प्रकार के अवसाद भी हैं, जो अद्वितीय परिस्थितियों में विकसित होते हैं, जैसे:


  1. लगातार अवसादग्रस्तता विकार
  2. मौसमी उत्तेजित विकार (मनस्ताप)
  3. जन्मजात अवसाद
  4. मनोवैज्ञानिक अवसाद
  5. प्रसवोत्तर अवसाद (पी.एन.डी)

अवसाद के लक्षण
अवसाद के लक्षणों में शामिल हैं:

  1. उदासी, आंसूपन, शून्यता या निराशा की भावनाएं
  2. गुस्सा, चिड़चिड़ापन या हताशा, यहां तक कि छोटे मामलों पर भी
  3. ज्यादातर या सभी सामान्य गतिविधियों में रुचि या खुशी की हानि, जैसे सेक्स, शौक या खेल
  4. नींद की गड़बड़ी, अनिद्रा या बहुत अधिक सोने सहित
  5. थकान और ऊर्जा की कमी, जिसकी वजह से छोटे कार्यों के लिए भी अतिरिक्त प्रयास की आवश्यकता पड़ती है
  6. भूख में बदलाव
  7. चिंता, व्याकुलता या बेचैनी
  8. नाकाबिल होने या दोषी होने की भावनाएं
  9. सोचने, ध्यान केंद्रित करने, निर्णय लेने और चीजों को याद रखने में समस्या
  10. आत्महत्या के अक्सर या आवर्तक विचार, और आत्महत्या के प्रयास
  11. अस्पष्टीकृत शारीरिक समस्याएं, जैसे पीठ दर्द या सिर दर्द
  12. अवसाद के कारण

1. बचपन के अनुभव:
बचपन में मुश्किल अनुभवों से गुज़रना या आघात, बाद में जीवन में अवसाद का कारण बन सकता है। जैसे कि:

  1. शारीरिक, यौन या भावनात्मक शोषण
  2. उपेक्षा 
  3. किसी करीबी की हानि
  4. दर्दनाक घटनाएं
  5. अस्थिर पारिवारिक स्थिति

2. जीवन की घटनाएं:

  1. अपनी नौकरी खोना, बेरोजगारी
  2. किसी संबंध का टूटना
  3. वियोग
  4. जीवन में प्रमुख बदलाव, जैसे कि नौकरी बदलना, घर में स्थानांतरण या शादी करना
  5. शारीरिक रूप से या यौन उत्पीड़न किया जा रहा है
  6. धमकाया या दुर्व्यवहार किया जा रहा है
  7. शारीरिक, यौन या भावनात्मक शोषण

3. मानसिक स्वास्थ्य समस्याएं:

मानसिक स्थितियों और समस्याओं जैसे चिंता, पी.टी.एस.डी आदि से भी अवसाद ट्रिगर हो सकता है। यदि आप एक और मानसिक स्वास्थ्य समस्या का अनुभव करते हैं, तो यह भी अवसाद का अनुभव करने के लिए सामान्य है।

4. शारीरिक समस्याएं:
खराब स्वास्थ्य आपके अवसाद के विकास के जोखिम को बढ़ा सकता है। कई स्वास्थ्य समस्याओं का प्रबंधन करना काफी मुश्किल हो सकता है, और आपकी मनोदशा को प्रभावित कर सकता है। पुरानी स्वास्थ्य समस्याएं, जीवन-धमकाने वाली बीमारियां, स्वास्थ्य समस्याएं जो आपकी जीवन शैली में काफी बदलाव करती हैं, आदि अवसाद पैदा कर सकती हैं।

  1. कुछ शारीरिक स्वास्थ्य समस्याएं भी अवसाद पैदा कर सकती हैं:
  2. मस्तिष्क और तंत्रिका तंत्र को प्रभावित करने वाली स्थितियां
  3. हार्मोन संबंधी समस्याएं, खासकर थाइरोइड और पैराथाइडर समस्याओं
  4. मासिक धर्म चक्र या रजोनिवृत्ति से संबंधित लक्षण
  5. कम रक्त शर्करा
  6. नींद की समस्याएं

5. जेनेटिक:
अनुसंधान ने दिखाया है कि अगर आपके करीबी परिवार के सदस्य को अवसाद हैं, तो आपके अवसाद अनुभव करने की अधिक संभावना है। 

6. दवा, ड्रग्स और अल्कोहल:

  1. अवसाद कई अलग-अलग दवाइयों का एक साइड इफेक्ट हो सकते है। शराब और ड्रग्स भी अवसाद पैदा कर सकती हैं। 
  2. हालांकि आप शुरू में अपने आप को बेहतर महसूस कराने, या अपने आप को विचलित करने के लिए उनका उपयोग करते हैं, लेकिन अंततः वे आप को और भी बदतर महसूस करा सकते हैं।

7. नींद, आहार और व्यायाम:
एक गरीब आहार, व्यायाम और पर्याप्त नींद की कमी भी आपके मनोदशा को प्रभावित कर सकती है। इस प्रकार वे आपको अवसाद के प्रति अधिक संवेदनशील बना सकते हैं।
