Stretch Marks Post Pregnancy - Ways You Can Get Rid of them

Stretch Marks Post Pregnancy - Ways You Can Get Rid of them

Ask any woman who had a baby in the last one year, as to what was one of her major complaints post pregnancy and the answer would be “stretch marks.” And, if you think of the belly as the only affected area, you are wrong! Even the breasts, calves and arms are affected.

The skin stretches beyond its limits in a short period of time and so these stretch marks appear. It is more common with women who have had excessive weight gain and with multiple babies. It is also hereditary and women with oily skin are less likely to have them. Also, women who regularly apply moisturizer have fewer stretch marks. However, there definitely are ways to both avoid and reduce the stretch marks.

Prevention is definitely more effective.

  1. Stretch mark creams can be used from day one of pregnancy, which can help reduce the formation of these marks.
  2. A good cream could also help eliminate existing stretch marks from earlier pregnancies, in addition to preventing new ones from forming.
  3. It is best to use the cream both during day and night after a warm shower. This will help the skin to absorb the cream optimally, making it more effective.
  4. Preventive lotions have a combination of cocoa butter, shea butter, honey, aloe vera and various oils including almond, castor, olive, vitamin E, and other essential oils. Each of them has their own effective way to control stretch marks.
  5. Other preventive measures include exercise, exfoliation using a scrubber and eating a diet which is low in zinc.

But treatment is the solution if prevention is not possible.

  1. Soon after pregnancy, try and use creams that contain cocoa butter, glycolic acid, various oils like almond, vitamin E, castor, and olive which will help manage the stretch marks.
  2. A good massage using these oils has proved to be one of the best ways to manage stretch marks on the belly and breasts.
  3. There are various on-the-shelf products nowadays for treating these marks, but use the one prescribed by your doctor. The way these chemicals get absorbed and excreted may not be clear to you and if you are breast-feeding, it is safer to consult a doctor before using such items.
  4. In addition to the creams, exercise and sufficient hydration are also essential to help stretch marks disappear.
  5. Laser surgery is another option which can do any of these 3 things – produce pigments in the lighter areas, improve collagen production in the depressed areas, or reduce the color of the darker areas in a stretch mark. Though offered widely, this is best avoided given the side effects.

Stretch marks are an integral part of pregnancy and it is best to let nature run its course after doing everything to prevent it or treating it safely. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

It's nice that you are still feeding your child at 2 years of age. Recommendation is to feed the child at least till the age of 2 years because such children are going become clever children. As a mother you are benefited a lot by breastfeeding your child. Most importantly it helps to maintain your weight. Let your child stop feeding naturally.

How Gestational Diabetes Affects Your Baby?

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), MBBS
IVF Specialist, Delhi
How Gestational Diabetes Affects Your Baby?

You may develop a form of diabetes during pregnancy, which is known as gestational diabetes. The condition usually goes away after childbirth. During pregnancy, hormonal changes within the body may cause the blood sugar level to rise. This condition affects the developing fetus as well, as the baby receives nutrients from your blood. The baby may store the extra sugar as fat and may grow unusually large.

How gestational diabetes affects the baby

Owing to the abnormally large size, the baby may be at risk of facing several complications, if you have gestational diabetes. Your baby may be affected in the following ways:

1. There may be injuries during birth due to the large size.

2. Low blood sugar level and mineral level during birth.

3. Jaundice, which is a condition which turns the skin to yellow.

4. The baby may be born prematurely.

5. Breathing problems which are temporary.

6. The baby will be at a higher risk of obesity later in life.

How gestational diabetes affects the mother

The chances of several pregnancy complications get enhanced due to gestational diabetes. The possible risks are as follows:

1. Chances of undergoing a C-section

2. Chances of miscarriage

3. High blood pressure.

4. Pre-term birth

5. After giving birth, the mother has high chances of developing type 2 diabetes.

How to manage gestational diabetes?

You can follow several tips and must undergo lifestyle changes for keeping your diabetes in control. These include the following:

1. You should have a healthy diet with reduced amount of carbohydrates as they cause the sugar level to increase. You must abstain from high sugar food items.

2. Regular physical exercise is essential for the management of sugar levels. You should work out for at least 30 minutes every day.

3. Regular health check-ups are very important, especially for your baby after birth. These may include ultrasounds and nonstress tests.

4. Prescribed medication such as insulin and several others help in the management of blood sugar levels.

5. You must observe your blood sugar level properly. You should take a blood sugar test many times a day.

6. You should always watch your symptoms for any sign of blood sugar during pregnancy.

In case you are diagnosed with gestational diabetes, you must consult a doctor immediately. Managing this condition at an early stage will prevent your baby from being affected in several ways. The condition can be successfully managed and majority of women with gestational diabetes have regular vaginal births and produce healthy babies. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

After having taken pills for 10 days before having sex, and you started also at the right time, there should be no chances of pregnancy but still if good bleeding don't occur, get a pregnancy test done.

Me and my wife is 43,42 years old living a happy and healthy sex life, but incidentally due to failure contraceptive she conceived, but non growth of fetus in 8 weeks she has to undergo abortion, we have two females of 20,15 years. now problem is that she wants tubectomy immediately, but doctors tell us to do that after 6-8/weeks of abortion, yesterday we did intercourse using condom, but she is afraid some cum leaks in her vagina and she can get pregnant again, but I am sure no burst of condom, all cum in condom but how can I tell her, my life at presently in a very sad condition, what should I do to assure her that we do not need any baby in future and after a perfect time we will undergo tubectomy or vasectomy. Please guide.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Vasectomy does not reduce the male hormones or the sex urge thereafter. It takes less than 30 mins and you can walk home almost immediately since it's done under local anesthesia. In fact you can get it done tomorrow if you want (monday). Visit any surgeon. She need not go for any surgery the. Her fobias will dissipate. When she realises that there is not going to be any repetition of her ordeal, and your commitment to top it, she should feel better. A condom safely used provides 100% protection, assure her of the fact. Only risk after vasectomy is that you have to use condoms for a month at least till you semen test shows no sperms.

Hi doc, these days I have been hearing a lot about intimate washes for cleaning woman's private area. And also the vaginal tightening creams. Are these both safe to use? Will it affect my reproductive health?

BGO

Best thing to wash private part is lukewarm water. There is no such cream for vaginal tightening. Better is do perineal exercise.

Detox Your Body

Detox Your Body

Detox Your Body Now.

Now as we celebrated Diwali yesterday, many of us had sweets and gracious sweets.

Honestly, it would be unfair to resist this indulgence, especially during this festive season.

Lemons – The acidic content in lemons will help you get rid of a heavy stomach feeling and bloating. Lemon also helps in smooth movement of food in our gastrointestinal tract. You can have lemon with lukewarm water on an empty stomach every morning.

Honey – Along with lemon and water, addition of honey helps in relieving constipation. This water will help in digestion and get rid of toxins in the body.

Spinach – Your body needs fiber. Festival binging often brings with it foods rich in fats and low in fiber. Because of this we often end up constipated. Spinach will help build up bulk in the body and clean the gastrointestinal tract.

Tomatoes – Yes, tomatoes are an underrated super food. Since during festive time we indulge in too many fried snacks, we end up consuming trans fats which are cancerous in nature. Eating tomatoes will help cut this cancerous effect in our body.

Cucumber – Cucumbers help produce more urine in the body which consequently means it secretes toxins out of the body.

Also, cucumber is a diuretic food which means it helps in excess losing water from our body.

Beetroot – Beetroot is known to cleanse our liver. Therefore, after a heavy alcohol night, blanch beetroots and have them.

Beetroots contain betalains which help neutralize toxins and flush them from our body through urine

Onions – Surprising as it may be, onions help cut toxins from other foods. This due to the antioxidants present in onions.

If you are a diabetic and indulged in heavily fried foods during Diwali, onions will help regulate blood sugar level.

If you r married and had sex in the last month there is a chance of pregnancy. So if you had sex, then please get urine test after 7 days of missed period. If not then you can wait for another month to get menses naturally. There is no food which can bring menses. People will say to eat papaya or pineapple, but nothing works. Hormonal changes can delay menses.

Can Balanced Diet Treat Impotency?

BHMS
Sexologist, Noida
Can Balanced Diet Treat Impotency?

Impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction, is a condition in which a man is not able to maintain an erection during sexual intercourse. It can be triggered by a variety of conditions like smoking, intake of certain drugs, health disorders or excessive consumption of alcohol. Although treatment options like medication and surgery are available, there are non-invasive treatments that can help a person fight the condition.

Here are some of them:
1. Engage in a physical workout - 
Among the many types of lifestyle changes that could be resorted to, exercise is the most effective one. Exercising improves blood flow and blood pressure in the body, both of which are essential for getting and maintaining a normal erection for a prolonged time. Plus, exercising also increases the level of testosterone, which is a crucial factor in sex drive.
2. Follow a balanced dietThe food you consume has a direct effect on your health and subsequently on your sex drive. A diet consisting of fruits, veggies, fish and lesser servings of red meat and refined grains can decrease the risk of impotency. Also, a healthy diet helps to maintain a stable body weight, which aids in sexual activity. Overconsumption of junk foods can cause obesity and diabetes, which are responsible for impotence.
3. Get sufficient sleep - Apart from a host of health problems, lack of sleep may also you render you impotent. Studies have shown that testosterone levels of men who are sleep deprived are much lower than in those who get their 8 hours of sleep. A proper sleep schedule should thus be duly adhered to.
4. Quit smoking and limit your alcohol consumption - Erectile dysfunction can be the cause of vascular disease. This occurs when the blood supply to the penis becomes restricted due to the blockage and narrowing of arteries. Alcohol and smoking can be responsible for this and can be the cause of both temporary and long-term impotence. Therefore, it's important to limit your alcohol consumption and quit smoking altogether. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Sexologist.
