Work During Pregnancy

DGO
Gynaecologist, Pune
Work During Pregnancy
Life is surely challenging for pregnant women who are working too. Pregnancy is a time when your body does not obey you and when you have to obey commands from other quarters, it becomes a bit tricky. But remember that pregnancy is not a disease and you can very much have a normal life and do well in office if you follow these simple tips.

1. Manage your stress level. It is but natural to have some or the other kind of stress at every work place. But you are in a beautiful phase of your life, so banish all negative thoughts and think of the little one who is growing inside you.

2. Carry your food and snacks as it is not advisable to eat out since your immune system becomes very weak during pregnancy and you are more likely to catch an infection.

3. Small breaks are a must. Take short walks; try deep breathing and east something every 2 hours.

4. Consciously sit straight. It is very important to maintain a healthy sitting posture so be very careful about it. If you suffer from swelling in legs, try a foot-rest to elevate your feet.{mosimage}

5. Avoid stairs. You don't need any strenuous exercise at this stage so it is better that you use a lift as there is no point tiring yourself unnecessarily.

6. No coffee, no cigarettes as a rule of thumb. Caffeine and nicotine are dangerous for your baby so stay away from them howsoever hard the temptation may be.

7. Don't try being a superwoman. That you are pregnant and still managing with your work is great. But you must understand that your body is weak and it needs rest. You must take rest at intervals and try not to overdo to prove yourself.

8. No bumpy rides please. You are in a delicate stage of health and your little one does not like to be juggled a lot. Moreover, it might turn harmful for the baby.

9. Drink a lot. But only water and fresh juices! no hard drinks please. Remain hydrated to avoid crams and bouts of nausea. It also helps in flatulence.

10. Keep emergency number on your desk and in your bag as a precautionary

No. If you took abortion pill then go for ultrasound pelvis to confirm whether abortion is complete or not.

You are suffering from frigidity. This happens due to reduced blood supply to vagina. We need ayurvedic tablets to treat it. This medicine increases blood supply to vagina so that night life becomes enjoyable. Just let me know your age, height, weight and details of menstrual cycle. This medicine is free from side effects. This information is important so as to arrive at perfect prescription.

You are 22, have a height of 5.4 feet and weight is 83.....this weight is in too much excess for your height. Unless you reduce weight, your menses wont regularise. so make it a point to come down to the best normal weight for your height of about 55 kg. Taking ultrasound and doing blood tests like thyroid tests hormone tests can be done to rule out some of the problems like thyroid dysfunction and ovarian uterine problems. Once you get menses, do visit the gynecologist to take medicines for making menses regular. BUT if you are OKay with irregular, or delayed menses, there is NOTHING to worry and you may not take medicines also. Meanwhile concentrate on your weight loss and get a diet charted by a dietitian and go to GYM to do cardiovascular exercises.

Good to know that every test done on her is normal. Neurokind plus to continue. It can be related to post menopausal hormonal changes but hormone replacement therapy has lots of side effects. Keep her occupied despite not able to walk due to pin prick sensation on foot. Make sure it is not a local cause like a corn or hardened skin tissue. Try this- soak her foot in warm water with a spoon of vinegar in it for few minutes till the time water remains warm. Let her wear slippers if she is not okay with bare foot as it must be hurting her. Do let us know about local cause.

The condition is termed as Metrorrhagia also known as the dysfunctional uterine bleeding is a problem that women suffer from.Basically, this condition is characterized by bleeding episodes (mainly spotting but can lead to severe bleeding) outside the menstrual phase. Metrorrhagia is considered a symptom of a possible health problem but shouldn’t be handled as a serious health problem right away. One should not panic. Some of the main cause are----------- • Endometrial hyperplasia. • Uterine cancer.. • Ruptured polyps. • Cervical dysplasia. • Cervicitis. • Abortion or miscarriage. • Infection. • Hormonal imbalance. • Coagulation problems. • Use of contraception. So consult a Gynaecologist for physical examination.

The study says listening to music while at work is said to increase physical productivity and give a feeling of well being. Also the goosebumps we get when we listen to certain genres of music is mostly caused by the brain releasing dopamine while anticipating the peak moment of a song.

Bed Sores: Causes and Complications

DGO, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Bed Sores: Causes and Complications

Continuous pressure on skin often results in injuries to the underlying tissues, causing what are generally known as skin sores. Though they generally occur in areas that cover bony areas like hips, ankles and tail bones, the part below the waist is most susceptible to them.

There are multiple reasons that cause bed sores. Some common causes include

  • Immobility
  • Inactivity
  • Poor nutrition
  • Smoking

However there are other more important causes that contribute to this disease. They are:

1. Constant pressure: Continuous immobility often causes pressure on the skin that further damages it and the underlying tissues. Tail bone, hip bone, ankles and heels are more prone to bed sores due to lack of movement. However similar damage is also detected in elbows, spine and ribs.

2. Friction: The friction that is caused when the skin rubs against another surface or when two layers of skin rub against each other, those that were moving in two opposite directions also result in bedsores. Sudden sliding down the chair or being transferred from a bed to a stretcher are common reasons behind it. 

3. Excessive moisture: Bed sores are also caused by excessive moisture that softens the skin and also reduces its resistance. Profuse perspiration and unchecked urination are important causes. If untreated immediately there are plenty of complications that arise from this disease. Few of them are: 

  • Infections: Skin sore causes multiple infections on the body like Cellulitis and Osteomyelitis. Cellulitis results in painful, red swelling of the skin that often oozes out fluid. On the other hand in Osteomyelitis, an infection is caused in the bone resulting in swelling over the affected area. Blood infection called Bacteremia is also caused due to skin sores. 
  • Septic arthritis: In this there is severe pain and swelling of a joint making it hot, red and tender.
  • Meningitis: Caused by the infection of the fluid around brain and spine, this disease causes severe headache with stiff neck and nausea. 
  • Squamous Skin cancer: This occurs if the skin sores remain unchecked for a long period of time. In this, the skin feels patchy and often bleeds.

Light therapy for treating Seasonal Affective disorder

B.A.(H)Psychology, M.A.Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology

Light therapy for treating Seasonal Affective disorder

One of the unique forms of depression is the Seasonal affective disorder which is characterized by the onset of depression with the start of the winter months and a full remission during spring time. Seasonal affective disorder is a form of depression that affects about 1 in 20 people around the world on average. One of the common therapies used to treat this disorder is light therapy.

What is light therapy?

Light therapy is the controlled exposure to specific amounts of bright light on a daily basis as a medicinal tool to correct depression and other mental disorders. It has been noticed that the lack of exposure to lights may trigger certain mental disorders within patients and controlled exposure to bright light over a stipulated period of time every day may be able to correct this effectively.

How it works?

Brightness within the daily world is usually measured with the unit of lux. For all types of artificial lights, the measure of luminosity is estimated via this unit. Human beings have an automatic trigger where low light levels for continued periods may cause depression. A clear sunny day outdoors will have a measurement of 10,000 lux and this is the recommended dosage for exposure for people suffering from depression.

It has been seen in studies that people with severe forms of Seasonal Affective disorder responded well to this therapy. They were treated 30 minutes daily with light exposure and over time the study showed that it significantly improved the moods of the people.

Some of the reasons why light therapy proves to be an effective treatment option for SAD include:

  • It resets the circadian rhythm - Controlled exposure to light will trigger the hormones that control the circadian rhythms or the daily rhythms of sleeping and walking cycles and thus will help reduce depression.
  • It triggers neurotransmitter function - Light exposure triggers certain neurotransmitter functions which work like an antidepressant and thus relieves stress or other internal functions that may cause depression.
  • Results in an increase in serotonin levels - This hormone is very important for mood elevation and is known to rise with increased light levels and decrease with low light levels. Controlled exposure can definitely help improve serotonin levels for lessening depression symptoms.
