Hi, I'm pregnant. Im in 3 trimester. My TSH level is 5.56.Does it causes any effect to the baby? Please confirm. Also let me know how to prevent hypothyroidism.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
As a result, the normal thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) level during pregnancy is lower than the normal nonpregnancy level. The new recommendations for TSH levels during pregnancy are the following: First trimester: less than 2.5 with a range of 0.1-2.5. Second trimester: 0.2-3.0, but you have 5.56. This condition is hypothyroidism. In many respects, the treatment of hypothyroidism in pregnant women is similar to that in nonpregnant women. A synthetic form of T4 is given to replace the missing hormone. The medication dose is regularly adjusted to maintain a steady blood level of thyroid hormone within the normal range. Therefore, it is routine practice to monitor the blood level of the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) during pregnancy.

Hello, I am not getting my MCs on time, I have already consulted many Gynech and had many treatments but I still have irregular MCs, I get my periods while I m under some treatment and then again the same problem continues as the course gets completed. I am bit worried because I think that due to this problem I m gaining more weight even though I have limited diet. I got my last MC in the month of dec. Please help me out with this. Thanks.

Irregular mc are due to either harmonal imbalance, any vitamin deficiency, any pathological changesthatoccur in your reproductive system. Like ovarian cysts, or uterine tumors, less hb levels, some times, but rarely it might be due to functional origin also. But here as per you said, whenever you r taking medicines, you r getting normal, & now your obesity. All indicating that, there must be harmonal imbalance/ovarian cysts if any. For that you need to under go spcfc tests. If already under went, try to reveal the reports so that, you can opt for proper t/t.

What to expect when marrying a 25 yrs old diabetic girl diagnosed with type 2? and the complications related to pregnancy?

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, FCPS, DGO, Diploma of the Faculty of Family Planning (DFFP)
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Compared to non-diabetic woman, more investigations, control of diet and drugs required for long time. If properly controlled not much difference in outcome of pregnancy but if not controlled properly and not treated properly higher chance of abortion, premature delivery, congenital problems and growth problem of baby.

I have 11 weeks pregnancy. But now yesterday spotting seen. I am very nervous about my baby's health. Is this any complicated condition.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Mumbai
Any bleeding during pregnancy should be regarded as a process of abortion which should be evaluated immediately with the ultrasound and with the correct treatment that process can be stopped. This could be normal implantation bleeding also which can only be confirmed be ultrasound.

Yes very high chance of getting pregnant as it coincides with the ovulation date. If you plan to prevent pregnancy you can use ipill within 5 days, within 1 day to be most effective.

Your physiological need increases during pregnancy. Most of the times mild hypothyroidism will revert back to normal.

Hello I'm 21 years old male. I regularly have sex with my girlfriend. Recently I had sex with her without protection. But I did not insert the sperm in her as the sperm come I took my penis off. So is there any problem? Please advise.

Predischarge can also have sperms. Hence it is not a 100% safe practice. Wait for her periods and if she misses her periods, then take urine pregnancy test.

Causes of Vaginal Yeast Infections and Risk Factors Associated with it

Gynaecologist, Delhi
Causes of Vaginal Yeast Infections and Risk Factors Associated with it

Vaginal yeast infection occurs when too many yeast cells grow in the vagina, causing inflammation. It can spread by sexual contact but is not considered as a sexually transmitted infection. A yeast infection results in soreness or itching in the vagina with a burning sensation while urinating.

Causes of yeast infections in the vagina:

The vagina contains a balanced mix of yeast and bacteria; but if the balance is disrupted, it can lead to yeast infection. The reasons for overgrowth of yeast infections are:

  • If antibiotics are used more than usual, they can decrease the level of lactobacillus bacteria present in the vagina, changing the pH of vagina
  • Having high estrogen levels during pregnancy by using high dose birth control pills and hormone therapy can lead to the overgrowth of yeasts.
  • Having diabetes, especially when the blood sugar level is not checked and tends to be high
  • Having a weak or impaired immune system
  • Being overweight and having poor eating habits, including foods high in sugar level

Risk factors associated with the condition:

A number of factors can increase your risk of getting a vaginal yeast infection.

  • Using antibiotics heightens your risk of developing vaginal yeast infection as it disrupts the balance between yeast and bacteria. Excessive intake of antibiotics can kill healthy bacteria, leading to overgrowth of yeast organisms.
  • Having a weak immune system with conditions such as poorly controlled diabetes and HIV can lead to an overgrowth of yeast in the vagina. Corticosteroid medicines also weaken the immune system.
  • Wearing pants that are tight-fitting, nonabsorbent and undergarments that trap warmth and moisture
  • Having high estrogen levels due to an imbalance of hormone levels during pregnancy or menstrual cycle can also lead to vaginal yeast infection.

I am 27 years old 18 weeks pregnant. I want to abort as I am not in the situation to continue this pregnancy. Please advise.

MBBS, MD Obs & Gynae, FNB Reproductive Medicine

It is too late and tough now. Risk to your life as the blood loss will be more and consent of 2 gynaecologists is required. If the pregnancy was unwanted it should have been terminated much earlier.

Pls help me I hav tb infection and I am pregnant nw some Dr. r saying abort and one is saying keep so what to do.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Normal tuberculosis (i. E not drug resistant) can be treated along with presence of pregnancy. Not to worry if one has been given rifampicin, isoniazid, ethambutol and pyrazinamide for treatment of tb along with pregnancy. So no need for abortion but regular consultation with gynaecologist for monitoring fetal well being growth and development is needed.

It is ok sometimes after HSG some female have prolonged cycles for a month or two. So need not to worry generally ovulation starts from day 8 of cycle till 18th day will be fertile period. After HSG the chances of conceiving increases, so do regular intercourse during fertile period
