Non Stress Test on Fetus - What Should You Know About it?

Non Stress Test on Fetus - What Should You Know About it?

Pregnancy and childbirth is one of the most important time in the life of a woman. It is a time to celebrate and yet be cautious as well, so that all goes well and the end of the pregnancy is a beginning of life for a baby. There are numerous ways of monitoring the health of the foetus during pregnancy. The non-stress test is one of the ways. Let us find out more about this: 

Heart rate monitoring: The non-stress test is basically concerned with the monitoring of the heart rate of the foetus. This is a prenatal test that is very commonly used in order to check the overall health and vitals of the baby while it is still in the womb. The test is essentially carried out to check how well the heart rate responds to the other movements carried out by the baby inside the womb. It is called a non-stress test because there is no external stimulation that may put pressure on either the heart rate or the movements of the baby.

Why: This test is usually recommended by the doctor when there is an increased risk of losing the foetus due to complications. This test is usually carried out when the pregnancy is in 26th to 28th week. This test will usually show whether or not the baby needs extra test, monitoring or care. This test is essentially conducted to check the oxygen supply and is a non-invasive procedure that does not pose any serious physical risks or harm.
Fetal Hypoxia: This test will also show whether or not the baby is suffering from fetal hypoxia, which is a condition where the heart beat is disrupted, if the passage of oxygen is blocked due to some reason.

Conditions for non-stress test: The non-stress test may be conducted if the lady in question has lost or had complication in previous pregnancy. Also, if the mother has any other medical condition like diabetes or cardiovascular conditions, then this test is imperative. Decreased movement of the foetus may also prompt the doctors to take action and conduct this test as a cautionary measure.

Procedure: During the procedure, you will be asked to lie down on a reclining chair and two belts with monitors will be attached to your abdomen. The heart rate of the baby, as well as the movements, will then be studied once the monitors are switched on. These monitors are in turn attached to a screen, in order to take the reading. This test will take no more than twenty minutes. However, if there is no movement in the baby, then the test may continue for a little longer until the baby becomes more active.

Is there any method or home remedy to check if my girlfriend is pregnant? Apart from test kit?

Is there any method or home remedy to check if my girlfriend is pregnant? Apart from test kit?
Home remedies include recording basal body temperature, signs like tender breasts, nausea, feeling sick etc are ways of detecting whether ones pregnant. But these are not at all specific to pregnancy hence not reliable. The only way is to watch out for a next scheduled period, is she gets it on time she is not pregnant. If she misses it she might be pregnant. In that case consult a gynecologist.

You are not pregnant as you already had bleeding after having sex. Menses usually come irregular for a month or so. Your regular periods may get delayed as you already had bleeding. Usually it will come within 1 month from the withdrawal bleeding.

Hello, you should take proper rest. You must do a walk after having meals. Eat frequent small meals. Take at least 2 glasses of milk daily. Drink water at short intervals. If not necessary then avoid long travel. Follow your doctor's all suggestions. You can eat apple everyday during pregnancy and papaya should be avoided.

You can take simple analgesia like meftal-spas during periods- 2 to 3 times after food and see if it helps. If the pain continues then get a pelvic usg done.

YOU NEED TO SURE OF THE SOURCE OF THE INFECTION. WHETHER IT IS BACTERIAL OR VIRAL. VIRAL FEVER SAYS FOR 3 TO 5 DAYS EVEN IF TREATED AGGRESSIVELY. HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE ARE CONSIDERED SAFEST IN PREGNANCY AS IT DO NOT HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECTS. SO OPT FOR HOMEOPATHY FOR SAFE PREGNANCY AND HEALTHY BABY. ALL THE BEST.
