Restoring Fertility Post Miscarriage - How Homeopathy Can Help?

Restoring Fertility Post Miscarriage - How Homeopathy Can Help?

Being a mother is the greatest gift to womankind. Every woman dreams of bearing a child. The feeling of being a mom is beyond any description. For some women, conception becomes a long and painful struggle. The fetus requires a complete 28 weeks to mature. Women who are unable to hold fetus or where fetus ceases to grow to suffer complications. Abortion is a term used for medical termination of pregnancy. It can be induced by drugs or surgery. However, complications can arise within any trimester causing a miscarriage. Miscarriage refers to the loss of a fetus before 20 weeks of pregnancy. A miscarriage is medically known as spontaneous abortion that may occur due to fetal or maternal complaints.

The symptoms of a spontaneous abortion are severe pain, cramps or heaviness in abdomen, fluid or tissues passing from the vagina or vaginal spotting or bleeding. These are warning signs and immediate gynaecologist attention is required in case of any such symptoms.

Let’s look at some of the causes of miscarriage:

  1. Faults in the genetic makeup of the fetus or chromosomal abnormalities can cease fetal growth.

  2. Immune system disorders

  3. Infection such as syphilis, rubella, poliomyelitis can lead to fetal death

  4. Trauma and injury due to accidents may cause loss of fetus

  5. Lifestyle factors such as excessive smoking, drinking, drug abuse can lead to fetal death.

  6. Women with fibroids, cysts, menstrual issues or uterine abnormalities have a tendency for recurrent abortions.

  7. Women with hormonal imbalances also tend to suffer miscarriages.

Homeopathy, with its holistic systems approach, provides highly individualised treatment for recurrent abortions. This all natural treatment targets the symptoms of the disease in totality. Homeopathic treatment of miscarriages goes beyond treating complications in conception and aims to restore uterus health and hormonal balance. It also deals with psychological symptoms like mood swings, irritability, anger, depression and fear that become associated due to recurrent failures in pregnancy. Morning and evening sickness can also be effectively managed through homeopathic medication.

Apart from this, homeopathy effectively combines a preventive and curative approach to treatment. It ensures that the patient is treated for the miscarriage and her health be restored for further conception

  1. Arnica is a well-known remedy for miscarriages in case it happens due to falls, lifting weights or violent concussion. If given in time, it may reduce the chance of miscarriage.

  2. Caulophyllum: deals with the tendency of miscarriage due to weakening of uterine tissues.

  3. Crocus Sativa: Deals with the tendency of abortion in Ist or 2nd month and issues like mood swings, violence, repentance and sadness.

  4. Erigon: effective remedy for irritability, abortion due to exercise and profuse bleeding.

  5. Sepia: Deals with morning sickness, depression, the tendency to abort in 5th to 7th month.

These and many other remedies are available for effective and long term treatment. Remember to consult a qualified homeopathic doctor for the same.

IF THE BLEEDING HAS STOPPED THEN THERE IS NO NEED TO UNDERGO DNC, BECAUSE THE PRODUCTS WOULD BE AUTOMATICALLY THRONE OUT OR GET ABSORBED. YOU CAN WAIT FOR ANOTHER 2 WEEKS. WAITING WONT CREATE PROBLEMS

At these age, the most common cause of lump in the breast is fibroadenoma which is a benign tumor. However you should get examined physically by a doctor and if necessary an fnac should be performed before jumping to any conclusion.

Chlamydia - Things You Must Know About It!

Chlamydia - Things You Must Know About It!

Chlamydia is a Sexually Transmitted Disease. It is generally found in men and women under the age of 25. Researchers have found that in the United States about 2.9 million individuals develop this disease every year.

Here are things that you must know about the disease:

What is it all about?
It is caused due to bacterial infection and is transferred sexually. You can be infected with disease by having vaginal, oral or anal sex with the patient. You must be aware of the fact that you can develop chlamydia even if your partner doesn’t ejaculate inside your vaginal tract. If you had suffered from this disease in the past, you can still get it again by having unprotected sex with an infected person.

What are the symptoms of this disease?
There aren’t any obvious symptoms for this disease. Most of the patients show no sign of developing this disease. Thus, you never get to know when you were infected actually. However, some patients do reflect some symptoms after 4 to 5 days of infection. These symptoms include abnormal penis or vaginal discharge and painful, burning urination. Men can also develop a bleeding rectum.

How do you know for sure that you are infected?
Well, you can get yourself tested to confirm about the infection.

What happens if you don’t get treated?
If the patient doesn’t seek medical help, he or she is posing threat to his or her health. Women may develop pelvic inflammatory diseases, infertility or ectopic pregnancy. In men, it can cause pain and fever as the infection spreads along the tube carrying sperm.

Is there any treatment?
This disease is curable. But it is important to avoid sexual contact with anyone during the period of treatment or medication. First, you need to undertake the test to confirm the infection. You shouldn’t have sex for seven days after the treatment is over. It is advisable to get yourself tested thrice in a year. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Ovarian cysts less than 6cm in size are usually functional and related to hormonal imbalance. Surgery is not needed at this stage. Rather you should take a course of hormonal pills for three months ; get a repeat USG done to see if things have normalised

Life is unsecured because we have made a much distance from nature. And it is my strong opinion that a person who lives near nature get less illness because nature is a strong hiller itself.

Regular exercise, a healthy diet, weight control, and not smoking are all important parts of treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) Eat a balanced diet that includes lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. If you are overweight, weight loss may be all the treatment you need. A small amount of weight loss is likely to help balance your hormones and start up your menstrual cycle and ovulation. Get regular exercise to help you control or lose weight and feel better. If you smoke, consider quitting. Women who smoke have higher levels of androgens than women who don't smoke. Smoking also increases the risk for heart disease.
