Hello friend,

Mai Dr. Ekta Singh gynecologist in Noida.

Aaj hum kuch aap se share karte hain kuch discuss karte hain abou obs and gynae.

Toh aaj hum jo topic choose karte hain that is pregnancy mein hum care kaise kare, pregnancy hamari life ka ek bahut precious event hota hai aur usme ek family ko ya us lady ko apni care kaise karni chahiye jisse ki hum ek bahut acchi, apne baby ko janam de paye that is very important. So agar first hum care ki baat kare toh shayad aap kahoge medical care jab bhi aap pregnant hote hain aap apne gynae ke paas jate hain, toh aap jante ho pregnancy is a natural process toh doctor ka kaam kya hota hai. Jab bhi aap pregnant hote hain aap apne gynae ke paas jate hain toh woh aapko supervise karti hai aapki pregnancy ko, woh dekhti hai ki kahi koi abnormality uss normal process mein develop to nahi ho rahi hai ya aisa koi indication to nahi mil raha hai jo develop ho sakta hai abnormality, toh usko treat karne ki ya prevent karne ki koshish karti hai, yeh woh different test examination dwara karte hain. Aur Ideally agar aap apni pregnancy se pehle hi preconception time mein miliye apne doctor say toh zayda behter hota hai. Second care ki baat karenge toh shayad aap sabhi jante hain aur aap bolenge hi ki nutrition, diet and nutrition kaise lena chahiye pregnancy mein, yeh bhi bahut hi jyada important hai kyunki hamara baby jaisa nutrition hum le rahe hain ek pregnant lady uss pe depend karta hai uss bachche ka growth, toh aap ki diet mein, diet ki baat kare toh jaise aap jante honge calcium rich diet hamare bache ki bones banani hai hamara baccha develop ho raha hai uski bones banani hai toh aap calcium rich diet chahte hain ki aap ki pregnant lady lene chahiye. Toh jaise dairy products aap jante ho calcium milta hai hame doodh, dahi, bahut acche se milta hai usko zaroor shamil kare lagbhag aadhe se ek kilo kam se kam aap doodh lein, paneer ke roop mein lena bhi theek hai but usme jo aapka bhi nikal jata hai that is not very good. So iske alawa iron rich diet aapke bachche ka blood banana hai, iske liye iron chahiye hota hai aapke mein blood adhik banne ki jarurat hai pregnant lady ko. Toh iron rich diet le sakte hain, green leafy vegetables hoti hai and aap jante ho beetroot mein kafi iron hota hai chukandar hai that is beetroot, dates hain dates thodi amount mein thodi amount mein aap kishmish raisins le sakte ho, chini avoid kare uski jagah thodi ek, do kishmish le toh jyada behtar hai. High protein diet aapke baby ka muscles banana hai aapke muscles ko strong hona hai toh protein is very important, protein aap ko milta hai daaloo main ya dudh mein bhi bahut accha protein hota hai aap wo le. Diet ke saath hi, nutrition ke saath hi hum baat kare to water intake is very important. Water intake kitna, le kab le, kaisa le or kab pani na le that all are very important. Toh hamme pregnancy mein jyada amount mein pani lena, gunguna pani is always good in summers also, in winters also and khana ke turant baad aap pan na le, khane se ek ghanta pehle ek ghanta baad mein, bahut choti choti baatein hoti hai lekin aap ki pregnancy ko healthy karne mein ye bahut important role play karte hain. Then hum aate hain third care kya samajhte hain aapka kya hoti hai 3rd care, toh exercise ya activity, physical activity ke aaj se lagbhag dus saal ya panch pehle hum baat hi nahi karte thay pregnancy ke dauran kyunki uss samay aap apni mother ki baat kare jab aap pait mein honge toh ghar ke sabhi kaam karti thi, toh physically wo bahut active rehti thi but aaj ke samay mai jaise mai ek gynecologist hoon, yeah maybe aap ek teacher honge, aap ek engineer honge, ya IT mein honge, ek bank professional mein honge, ek as female lady jo pregnant ho gayi hai ya pregnant hai, toh woh subah se shaam bandi subah se shaam chair par baithi hoti hai toh physically koi proper activity nahi ho pati hai. A ur shayad aap ye jante honge ki jab hum physical activity hain toh hamari puri body ka blood circulate hota hai toh obviously jaise hum daud ke aaye kahin se toh aap dekhte ho redness, pura chehra red ho jata hai iska matlab ki blood circulate hota hai toh same way jab aap physically active hote ho toh aap ke bachche tak bhi blood flow acchaa jata hai. Toh aap jo bhi khaoge aap ka nutrition, aapke vitamins, minerals wo sara kuch aapke bacche tak pahuchega. Toh physically active hona bahut saari exercise hai jo ek pregnant lady, uske bache ke liye bahut hi jyada important hai, yoga hai jo aap jaan sakte ho aap kar sakte ho. Iske baad chauthi baat kare hum toh theek kaunsi care chahiye toh breathing techniques, aap jante ho ki oxygen hamari har cell ke function ke liye bahut important hoti hai toh oxygen hamare bacche tak kaise jayegi ye hamare body ke kisi bhi organ tak kaise jayegi, toh aap jab gehri saans lene ki exercise karte hain deep breathing karte hain just oxygen ander jayegi carbon dioxide or toxins niklenge aur woh aap ki pregnancy ko healthy banayenge aapke bacche ki growth ko increase karaenge. And last but not the least or I can say the most important thing is ki aap mentally kya think karte ho uss pregnancy are pregnancy hone ke just pehle se hai aap ki thinking kaise rehti, hai aap kis baare me sochte ho, aapka mental attitude kya rehta hai yeh bahut hi jyada important hai. Abse jo 4 humne pehle ki hamne care ki medical care, nutrition diet care, aapki physical activity ya exercise, yoga care, ya aapse breathing technique oxygen jyada pahunchne ki ye saari care aapke bacche ki body ko accha banaegi. Toh aapka baccha aapko chahiye intelligent bhi, emotionally stable bhi, happy child aapko chahiye toh zaroor aap dhyan rakhe ki aapka uss samay thinking kaisi chal rahi hai, aapki positive thinking aap ki pregnancy ko, aapke bache ko uski puri life ke liye bahut kuch de sakti hai, ek positive life pura jo aap nine-month jis tarah se rahoge aapka mental attitude jo rahega wo aapke bachche ka 9 months ko carry karega.

So best of luck for your pregnancy, so thank you thank you very much. If you want to consult me you can come to my clinic which is a Noida or you can take appointment from Lybrate also, Thank you very much.

Myself Dr Ekta Singh, a gynaecologist in Noida. Aj hum baat karenge un infections ki women ki private parts mein hoti hain. Isme bohut ki common hain urinary tract infection, ya hum use UTI ki naam se jante hain. Isme patient ko, baar baar urine jana padh sakta hain, burning ho sakti hain, or pain bhi hota hai genital area me. Yeh kabhi bhi ho sakta hain, kisi bhi age group mein ho sakta hain, aur winter mein kabhi kabhi paani peena kam karte hain to aisa ho jaata hain. Isme hum jab urine test karate hain, routine microscopy and culture, toh isse pata chalta hai ki haan, infection hai. Lekin ye test karana tab bilkul zaruri hota hain jab ye infection recurrent ho, baar baar ho jay. Aise hi agar baar baar hota hain, ya saath mein flank pain ho raha hai, toh humein ek ultrasound jo kidney-bladder ko focus karta hua hota hain, ultrasound ko KUB kehte hain hum, use karana chahiye, aur agar aap ki mother father diabetic hain, ya humein kabhi aisa raha ho, toh blood sugar ka test bhi karna chahiye. Agar paani dher sara piyein, agar apko…piyein aap, toh apni gyanecologsit se mile, who apko antibiotic dete hain, aur ____ agent dete hain, aura ap use treat ho sakte ho.

Ab hum baat karenge infections in vaginal tract, jaise vaginitis and vulvitis. Isme patient ko bohut zyada itching hoti hain, redness ho sakta hain, discharge hota hain. Ye alag alag agents ke wajah se ho sakte hain jaise fungal infection apne suna hoga, jisko candida infection bhi kehte hain, yeast infection bhi kehte hain. Isme patient ko bohut thick discharge hota hain, curdy white, chesse ki tarah ka, cheesy white discharge hota hain, and itching is very severe, redness ho sakti hain.

Iske ilawa protozoan infection hota hain, isme frothy yellowish white discharge hota hain aur itching hoti hain, thin discharge hota hain.

Iske alwa bacterial infection bhi ho sakta hain. Iske liye aap apni gynaecologist se treatment lete hain, aur especially agar aap sexually active hain, toh husband and wife ya both partners should take medicines, then results are long term and effective.

Iske alawa apne suna hoga bohut saare sexually transmitted disease hote hain jisme se bohut saare curable hain, jaise gonorrhoea, and chlamydia and syphilis. Inko toh cure kiya ja sakta hain, par kuch hai jinko cure nahi kiya ja sakta hain, treatment ko unka sambhav hain, jaise ki aap jante hain Hepatitis B and HIV, AIDS jisko hum kehte hain, Herpes…inko properly cure karna sambhav nahi hain. Aj ke yug mein jo hamare paas therapies hain. Iske liye hum samaj sakte hain ki prevention zyada accha hain. Toh hum sabhi ko apna husband ya partner ki sexual history ke baare main pata hona chahiye. Agar hum monogamous hain, matlab hamare partner ek hain, toh chances of sexually transmitted diseases bohut kam ho jaat hain, jaise ki India mein hum sabhi…most of us are monogamous. This is good practice actually. And then we should use a barrier method. Barrier methods humein ek doosre se infection transmission ko kaafi kam kar dete hain. Iske upar agar hum jate hain, toh PID – Pelvic Inflammatory Disease ho sakti hain patient ko, jisme humein lower abdomen pain hota hain. Ya hum sexually active hain, toh during coitus, humein pain ho sakta hain. Aisa kuch bhi hota hain toh hum gynaecologist se mil sakte hain.

Agar aap mujhse consult karana chahte hain, toh Lybrate ke through aap mujhse appointment le sakte hain, ya online consultation bhi kar sakte hain. Otherwise aap mere clinic pe, jo ki 61 Sector mein hain, Noida mein, C20 is the address, you can come here.

Thank you.

Hi friends, I am Dr Ekta Singh, Gynaecologist in Noida. Aaj hum baat karenge ke reproductive tract ki care kaisi karni chahiye, kyunki aap jaante hai prevention is always better than cure.

First of all, hume apna proper hygiene maintain karni chahiye private parts ki. For that water wash is good enough. Soap ka regular use karna is not good actually. And then jab humare menses aate hain, then we should change our pads in every 3 to 4 hours, and we should practise safe sex practices. Aap jaante hai bahut saare sexually transmitted diseases hai, jese ki, HIV, AIDS, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Herpes, Syphilis etc. So there are barrier methods that you can use. Then you have, Contraceptive care, ya fir hum ise birth controlling method bhi kehte hai, jo ki humein use karna chahiye.

Kabhi kabhi, hum regularly use karte hain emergency contraceptive ka, that is not good. Not a healthy practice. There are barrier methods such as IUCT, jisse Copper T kehte hain, ya birth controlling pills hote hain jo aap regular basis pe letey ho, that are healthier alternatives.

And then, aap ko shayad pata ho, that every lady should do and know breast self examination. Humein aapne har mahina after menses, every month, we should select a date, after our menses, we should do, aapne breast ka self examination karna chahiye. Jab hum bath le rahe hotey hain, uss samay with soapy hands, with three fingers we should do the breast self examination. And then, aapne shayad Pap Smear ka naam suna hoga. Pap smear is a test jisse hum apne uterus ke mouth ka test karte hain. Womb ke mouth ko hum cervix kehte hai. Woh healthy hai ya nahin, woh ek chhote se test se, jab aap OPD mein jaate ho, aapne gynaecologist ke paas, ek simple test hai, woh aap le saakte ho, karwa sakte ho, Liquid based cytology kehlate hai. Agar hum sexually active hai, lag bhag, sexually active huye hume 3 saal huye hai toh hum karwa sakte hai. Hume shuru karwa dena chahiye, every 3 years mein ya 5 years mein, ya humari umaar 21 years se zyada hai, to hi. Aur agar humare umaar 35 years se zyaada hain, toh ek Human Papilloma Virus test hota hai, woh bhi bahut zaroori hai karana.

Iske alava kuch general advices hai jo aap follow karenge toh bahut achha hoga. Jaise, simple, humein paani dher saara peena chahiye. Aap jaante hain humaare blood mein, kareeb 50 to 60% water content hota hai. Ye water humare body ke har cell tak nutrition pahuchata hai, aur toxins remove karke urine ke raaste yeh remove karte hai. Toh water aapka lena, kareeb 3-4 litre lena is very good. Depends ki agr summer hai toh thoda zada pani lijiye, winter mein thoda kam bhi chalega.

And then, high fibre diet, nutritious diet humein lena chahiye. Woh diet, jisme minerals, vitamins zyada hai aur fibres hai. Yeh aapke constipation ko rokegi aur nutrition pahuchayegi body mein.

Then, oxins avoid karna chahiye. Aajkal bahut saare advanced bachhe hain, smoking karte hain, alcohol is a status symbol, and drugs. These are actually not good at all. Other toxins jo hum bahut zyada use karte hain, jse ki:

  •  Microwave ka use, that is not good.
  • Plastic wares mein hum khaana paakate hai microwave ke andar.
  • Hum bottles le jaate hain plastic ki, usse car mein rakhkhe rakhkhe garam ho jaate hain and that water is really dangerous.
  • And then aapko exercise, regular exercise is very good. Lekin aap agar gym mein bahut intense exercise karte ho, that is sometimes, not very good.
  • Swimming, walking, is all good.
  • And iske alava, last but not the least, humein positive thinking karni chahiye.

Jaise aap jaante hain, stress is absolutely, absolutely unhealthy for us, for our health. And agar aapko lagta hai ki kahin koi abnormalities nazar aatey hai, toh aap apne gynaecologist se mil sakte hain. Aur agar kuchh bhi nahin nazar aatey hain to sb normal hain, toh bhi aap ek routine check up ke liye apne gynaecologist se mile toh aap apne health ko leke sure ho sakte hai.

Aur agar aap mujhse consultation lena chahte hain, toh aap Lybrate se le saakte hai. Otherwise you can come to my clinic, which is situated in Noida, 61 sector, C 20.

Thats all,  Thank You. Bye.

Ectopic Pregnancy - Things You Must Be Aware About!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Noida
Ectopic Pregnancy - Things You Must Be Aware About!

In ordinary pregnancy, the egg released from the ovary becomes fertilized when it meets the sperm and travels through the fallopian tubes to the uterus where it grows in the following nine months. In an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg never makes it to the uterus instead it stays in one of the fallopian tubes; this is also known as tubal pregnancy. In very rare cases, the egg also attaches itself to one of the two ovaries making your pregnancy difficult and putting your health in danger.

Treatments: Ectopic pregnancy is usually ended if it is detected at an early stage to prevent rupture and extreme blood loss. There are both medications and surgical options depending upon the stage of detection.

Medication: Methotrexate is a potent drug used to end ectopic pregnancy but it has several side effects like vomiting, stomachache, drowsiness and nausea. It requires several hormone and blood tests to determine its effects on the pregnancy. This medication will work only when your hormone levels during your pregnancy are low and the embryo does not have any heart activity.

SurgerySurgical treatment of ectopic pregnancy is needed when the symptoms have become more rampant like increased hCG levels and excessive bleeding. At this stage, any kind of medication won't work and the possibility of a rupture becomes more prominent as time progresses. In such cases, Laparoscopic surgery is done, which requires a small incision and is safe and effective. If the patient happens to experience rupture, immediate emergency surgery is required.

Ectopic pregnancy tends to take care of itself by miscarriage, which is called expectant management. Medication is the first choice of treatment, it is usually very effective and surgery is used to treat severe cases when one becomes unresponsive to medications. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Genital Warts - How They Can be Diagnosed?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Noida
Genital Warts - How They Can be Diagnosed?

Genital warts are a sexually transmitted disease caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and affects both men and women. Genital warts are treatable but can come back if the underlying infection is not treated properly.

Genital Warts appear as soft growths on the genitals and are known to cause itching, pain and discomfort. Although the disease affects both men and women, it causes more complications in women as some strains of HPV can cause cancer of the cervix and vulva.

Warts can appear on the penis, scrotum, groin, thighs, inside or around the anus for men. These can appear inside of the vagina or anus, outside of the vagina or anus or cervix for women. They can also appear on the mouth, lips, tongue, throat of the person who engages in oral sex with an infected person. Sometimes the warts may be invisible to the eye and still cause symptoms like vaginal discharge, itching, bleeding or a burning sensation.

Symptoms of Genital Warts: HPV is very common and nearly 70 pc of the people are infected around the genital area. The Center for Disease control (CDC) says that most sexually active people, are affected by the disease at some point of there life. It is important to note that although the disease is transmittable through skin-to-skin contact, it doesn't spread from the hand to the genitals or vice versa.


Diagnosis:

 

  • Genital Warts can be diagnosed by performing a physical examination of the infected areas by a medical professional. Since some warts can be inside a woman's body, a doctor may have to conduct a pelvic exam. While conducting the test they use a mild acidic solution which makes the Genital Warts more visible.
  • A Pap smear test may also be conducted, in which a swab of the area is taken from inside your cervix. Apart from that doctors may also ask questions about a person's sexual history as well as health as ask if they have participated in unprotected sex, including oral sex.


Treatment: Visible Genital warts go away with time; however treatment is essential to prevent their return. The virus cannot be eliminated once it is in your bloodstream, which makes it possible that an infected person will have many break outs in their life. Managing the symptoms of Genital warts is important as they can be easily passed on to your sexual partner, even if there are no visible symptoms.

Why Heavy Period During Early Pregnancy Scary?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology

Why Heavy Period During Early Pregnancy Scary?

If you are pregnant with your first child and you are aware that you don't get your periods during this phase, naturally you may be scared if you suddenly start getting your periods. Your natural instinct says that you are experiencing a miscarriage. Although it is worrisome, if you bleed during your pregnancy, it is however, a very common phenomenon during the first trimester. However, if it continues to happen, you need to consult your gynaecologist as soon as possible.

Let us see the reasons for which you may encounter heavy bleeding during early pregnancy

  • You can experience bleeding if you have sex during the early phases of your pregnancy. This is because the cervix becomes softer due to pregnancy and gets increased blood flow during the thrust. This bleeding doesn't harm the baby, so there is nothing to be scared of.
  • When you are pregnant, the primary fertilization of eggs happens in the fallopian tube. After that, the eggs are then implanted in the uterine wall. During this phase, you can encounter bleeding. You may find it similar to the menstrual bleeding with a slight change in the colour, but there is not much to worry.
  • You may experience sudden bleeding if the fertilized eggs are embedded in the wall of the fallopian tube instead of the uterus. This condition is called Ectopic Pregnancy and can lead to the rupture of the fallopian tubes once the embryo grows bigger in size. This is a serious situation and you need to consult a doctor as soon as possible.

However, you cannot rule out the chances of miscarriage. So, if you are really scared of intermittent bleeding when you are expecting, it's best to go for medical care as soon as possible.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Gestational Trophoblastic - How This Problem Can Be Treated?

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Noida
Gestational Trophoblastic - How This Problem Can Be Treated?

Gestational trophoblastic disease is when there are trophoblastic cells which are growing abnormally inside the uterus. It is a pretty rare disease. Gestational trophoblastic disease mostly occurs after conception. The trophoblastic cells are a sort of tumorous cells which surround the fertilized egg in the uterus. It is a very serious and painful condition which can even become cancerous.

Here are the treatments for gestational trophoblastic disease.

  1. HysterectomyA hysterectomy is when the entire uterus is removed from the body using surgery. Hysterectomy is one of the most common methods to cure gestational trophoblastic disease. However, after the hysterectomy, a lot of beta human chorionic gonadotropin blood tests are administered every week. Beta human chorionic gonadotropin blood tests are sometimes shortened to B-HCG blood tests. Patients will also have to visit the doctor for up to 6 months every month following the hysterectomy. However, since a hysterectomy completely removes the uterus, it is probably a last resort option as the baby is kept in the uterus. Chemotherapy and dilation and curettage are perhaps better options if you have gestational trophoblastic disease.
  2. Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is usually done with one or more anti-cancer drugs. Chemotherapy is continued until the B-HCG or beta human chorionic gonadotropin levels are back to normal. If the chemotherapy does not reduce beta human chorionic gonadotropin levels or the tumor spreads to other parts of the body, then different treatment is required. This includes using chemotherapy for what is known as high-risk metastatic GTN for the gestational trophoblastic disease.
  3. Dilation and curettage: This is a much less drastic procedure and is usually done when the tumor has not spread as much. A D&C which is the short form of dilation and curettage is performed so that the inner parts of the lining of the uterus as well as abnormal tissues are all removed. This is performed by dilating the cervix so that the inner parts of the lining of the uterus as well as the abnormal tissue is all removed. However, a dilation and curettage is safe only when you have a molar pregnancy.

PCOD - How The Right Diet Can Help?

PCOD - How The Right Diet Can Help?

A rising number of teenage girls in the country are getting affected with Poly Cystic Ovarian Disease or PCOD. Though an advanced menarche has become very rampant these days, there are many young women who are suffering from a delay in menarche, which in turn is leading to PCOD as opined by gynaecologists. Obesity and sedentary lifestyle among young people have caused a rapid doubling of PCOD cases in the past five to eight years.

Occurrence and Symptoms:
Gynaecologists report that they get at least 15 fresh instances of PCOD cases and a considerable number of teenagers aged 16-17 are not getting their menarche. Such patients are recommended to take a strictly balanced diet, which will help them to lose weight. Initially, their mothers think that they would experience their menarche in proper time, but some girls are diagnosed with PCOD when taken to a family gynaecologist. Even worse, they could never imagine that their obesity can pave the way for such a grave health issue. PCOD can cause numerous other problems like delayed and irregular menses, rapid weight gain and tremendous difficulty in losing weight, developing acne and blocked skin pores. Furthermore, it leads to thinning of hair and excessive growth of hair on chest, back and face. Infertility, continual miscarriage, high blood pressure and high blood sugar are also common with PCOD.


Help yourself with the right diet:
There is no proven evidence regarding the cause of PCOD though gynaecologists are of the opinion that some females possess a predisposition to this disease and it may run hereditarily in the family. You can alleviate your PCOD symptoms to a considerable extent by regulating your diet properly. Have loads of fruits and green leafy vegetables and try to abstain from dairy products as many experts believe that dairy products are a direct cause of an increase in insulin levels, which can aggravate skin troubles along with other PCOD symptoms. Avoiding red meat and eating lean meat instead will help the condition and reduce the chances of infertility. It is always recommended to avoid hydrogenated and saturated fats, which are normally found in animal and dairy-based food. Try to put a stop to cheese, cottage cheese, clarified butter, pork, lamb, beef, etc. and certain baked products like cookies, cakes and fudges as they will trigger a rise in your blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

Foods to be avoided are foods with high glycemic index, refined sugars and carbohydrates- not milk products. PCOD is such a condition, which you can never afford to overlook. If you had been facing any of the common symptoms, then it is probably time to pay a visit to a responsive gynaecologist.

High Blood Pressure During Pregnancy - 10 Causes Behind It!

MBBS, MS - Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Gynaecologist, Noida
High Blood Pressure During Pregnancy - 10 Causes Behind It!

Blood pressure is the amount of force exerted by the blood against the walls of the arteries. A person's blood pressure is considered high when the readings are greater than 140 mm Hg systolic (the top number in the blood pressure reading) or 90 mm Hg diastolic (the bottom number). In general, high blood pressure, or hypertension, contributes to the development of coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure and kidney disease.

Causes of High Blood Pressure During Pregnancy

  1. Being overweight or obese
  2. Failing to stay active
  3. Smoking
  4. Drinking alcohol
  5. First-time pregnancy
  6. Teenage pregnancies
  7. A family history of pregnancy-related hypertension
  8. Carrying more than one child
  9. Age (over 40)
  10. Assistive technology (such as IVF)

What are the effects of high blood pressure in pregnancy?
Although many pregnant women with high blood pressure have healthy babies without serious problems, high blood pressure can be dangerous for both the mother and the fetus. Women with pre-existing, or chronic, high blood pressure are more likely to have certain complications during pregnancy than those with normal blood pressure. However, some women develop high blood pressure while they are pregnant (often called gestational hypertension).

The effects of high blood pressure range from mild to severe. High blood pressure can harm the mother's kidneys and other organs, and it can cause low birth weight and early delivery. In the most serious cases, the mother develops preeclampsia or "toxemia of pregnancy", which can threaten the lives of both the mother and the fetus.


How can women with high blood pressure prevent problems during pregnancy?
If you are thinking about having a baby and you have high blood pressure, talk first to your doctor or nurse. Taking steps to control your blood pressure before and during pregnancy - and getting regular prenatal care - go a long way toward ensuring your well-being and your baby's health.

Before becoming pregnant:

  • Be sure your blood pressure is under control. Lifestyle changes such as limiting your salt intake, participating in regular physical activity, and losing weight if you are overweight can be helpful.
  • Discuss with your doctor how hypertension might affect you and your baby during pregnancy, and what you can do to prevent or lessen problems.
  • If you take medicines for your blood pressure, ask your doctor whether you should change the amount you take or stop taking them during pregnancy. Do not, however, stop or change your medicines unless your doctor tells you to do so.

While you are pregnant:

  1. Obtain regular prenatal medical care.
  2. Avoid alcohol and tobacco.
  3. Talk to your doctor about any over-the-counter medications you are taking or are thinking about taking.

Note: Treatment before and during pregnancy should be a medication which is safe as few antihypertensives are teratogenic.

Menstrual Problems - Things That Can Lead To It!

By the time a woman is 20 years of age, monthly periods become a part of her routine normal life. Most women are well-equipped to handle it without their normal life (personal or professional) getting affected. They know it is “that time of the month” and are prepared mentally and physically. However, some women find it difficult to do it, as they could be suffering from menstrual problems including irregular periods and uterine bleeding. Most often, the bleeding is abnormal and dysfunctional, when most women are not able to identify a set pattern to it.

The list below identifies the most common forms of abnormal or dysfunctional uterine bleeding:

  1. A normal menstrual cycle occurs with a gap of anywhere from 21 to 35 days. Anything shorter than 21 days or longer than 35 days is defined as irregular period
  2. Complete lack of period for up to 3 to 5 months is termed as amenorrhea
  3. Bleeding that is heavier or lasts longer than usual, and occurs before the due date for that month’s period
  4. Scanty bleeding between periods
  5. Spotting or bleeding after sexual intercourse
  6. Spotting or bleeding even after menopause

Causes: The most common causes of abnormal uterine bleeding are as follows:

  1. Hormonal imbalances can cause absence of period, increased frequency and amount of bleeding
  2. Miscarriage, bleeding is often the first sign of miscarriage
  3. Ectopic pregnancy
  4. Pregnancy
  5. Cervical or uterine infections
  6. Polyps
  7. Uterine fibroids
  8. Cancers of the reproductive tract
  9. Polycystic ovaries
  10. Endometrial hyperplasia
  11. Problems with blood clotting

Diagnosis: Menstrual problems are very common; however, most women tend to shy away from talking about it and do not come out in the open. When talking to a doctor, a detailed family history, menstrual history, and physical examination are done to come to a diagnosis. Additional diagnosis can also be done by ultrasound, hysteroscopy, endometrial biopsy.

Treatment: Identifying the problem helps in initiating the right treatment. A combination of the below is usually used in most women.

  1. Hormonal therapy is based on the underlying condition, and the type and dosage is determined based on it. It could be in the form of tablets, injections, vaginal applications, or released through an intrauterine device.
  2. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen are useful in reducing bleeding and controlling cramps during excessive menstrual bleeding.
  3. Antibiotics may be useful if there is infection of the pelvic organs
  4. Polyps, cysts, and cancers can be removed surgically and cancer should be ruled out
  5. Endometrial ablation where the endometrial tissue is treated with heat can be used to control bleeding permanently.
  6. Hysterectomy is the last resort where other forms of treatment fail.

Bacterial Vaginosis: Understanding The Risk Factors!

Bacterial Vaginosis: Understanding The Risk Factors!

Bacterial Vaginosis is a vaginal disorder, which is caused due to a bacterial infection, and is characterized by abnormal vaginal discharges and foul vaginal odor. This is a mild disorder, which persists for only a few days and it happens when the bad vaginal bacteria outnumber the good vaginal bacteria.

The common risk factors of Bacterial Vaginosis are:

  1. Multiple sex partners: If a woman has multiple sex partners or has intercourse with a new sex partner, she may be at a higher risk of contracting the disease. This happens because frequent intercourses disrupt the balance between the good and bad vaginal bacteria.
  2. Lack of good bacteria: Lactobacilli bacteria is a type of good bacteria that helps to maintain an overall acidity (pH) balance of the vaginal environment. This type of bacteria is produced by the vagina itself. Thus, if there is a lack of this type of bacteria, the risk of getting bacterial vaginosis will increase tremendously.
  3. Douching: Douching refers to the activity of externalized cleaning of the vagina by rinsing it with water or some cleansing agent. The vagina is a self-regulatory organ, which can keep itself clean and there is no need to use external measures to clean the vagina.
  4. SmokingIt is a proven fact that smoking also leads to bacterial vaginosis. Smoking tends to add external harmful agents to your body, which indirectly affect the vagina by forcefully altering its acidity (pH) balance.
  5. Unprotected intercourse: Many times, sexual intercourse without a condom also leads to the disease. Under such a situation, the vagina comes in close and constant contact with external body parts of the partner and, thus, leads to the transmission of bacteria. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello friend,

Mai Dr. Ekta Singh gynecologist in Noida.

Aaj hum kuch aap se share karte hain kuch discuss karte hain abou obs and gynae.

Toh aaj hum jo topic choose karte hain that is pregnancy mein hum care kaise kare, pregnancy hamari life ka ek bahut precious event hota hai aur usme ek family ko ya us lady ko apni care kaise karni chahiye jisse ki hum ek bahut acchi, apne baby ko janam de paye that is very important. So agar first hum care ki baat kare toh shayad aap kahoge medical care jab bhi aap pregnant hote hain aap apne gynae ke paas jate hain, toh aap jante ho pregnancy is a natural process toh doctor ka kaam kya hota hai. Jab bhi aap pregnant hote hain aap apne gynae ke paas jate hain toh woh aapko supervise karti hai aapki pregnancy ko, woh dekhti hai ki kahi koi abnormality uss normal process mein develop to nahi ho rahi hai ya aisa koi indication to nahi mil raha hai jo develop ho sakta hai abnormality, toh usko treat karne ki ya prevent karne ki koshish karti hai, yeh woh different test examination dwara karte hain. Aur Ideally agar aap apni pregnancy se pehle hi preconception time mein miliye apne doctor say toh zayda behter hota hai. Second care ki baat karenge toh shayad aap sabhi jante hain aur aap bolenge hi ki nutrition, diet and nutrition kaise lena chahiye pregnancy mein, yeh bhi bahut hi jyada important hai kyunki hamara baby jaisa nutrition hum le rahe hain ek pregnant lady uss pe depend karta hai uss bachche ka growth, toh aap ki diet mein, diet ki baat kare toh jaise aap jante honge calcium rich diet hamare bache ki bones banani hai hamara baccha develop ho raha hai uski bones banani hai toh aap calcium rich diet chahte hain ki aap ki pregnant lady lene chahiye. Toh jaise dairy products aap jante ho calcium milta hai hame doodh, dahi, bahut acche se milta hai usko zaroor shamil kare lagbhag aadhe se ek kilo kam se kam aap doodh lein, paneer ke roop mein lena bhi theek hai but usme jo aapka bhi nikal jata hai that is not very good. So iske alawa iron rich diet aapke bachche ka blood banana hai, iske liye iron chahiye hota hai aapke mein blood adhik banne ki jarurat hai pregnant lady ko. Toh iron rich diet le sakte hain, green leafy vegetables hoti hai and aap jante ho beetroot mein kafi iron hota hai chukandar hai that is beetroot, dates hain dates thodi amount mein thodi amount mein aap kishmish raisins le sakte ho, chini avoid kare uski jagah thodi ek, do kishmish le toh jyada behtar hai. High protein diet aapke baby ka muscles banana hai aapke muscles ko strong hona hai toh protein is very important, protein aap ko milta hai daaloo main ya dudh mein bhi bahut accha protein hota hai aap wo le. Diet ke saath hi, nutrition ke saath hi hum baat kare to water intake is very important. Water intake kitna, le kab le, kaisa le or kab pani na le that all are very important. Toh hamme pregnancy mein jyada amount mein pani lena, gunguna pani is always good in summers also, in winters also and khana ke turant baad aap pan na le, khane se ek ghanta pehle ek ghanta baad mein, bahut choti choti baatein hoti hai lekin aap ki pregnancy ko healthy karne mein ye bahut important role play karte hain. Then hum aate hain third care kya samajhte hain aapka kya hoti hai 3rd care, toh exercise ya activity, physical activity ke aaj se lagbhag dus saal ya panch pehle hum baat hi nahi karte thay pregnancy ke dauran kyunki uss samay aap apni mother ki baat kare jab aap pait mein honge toh ghar ke sabhi kaam karti thi, toh physically wo bahut active rehti thi but aaj ke samay mai jaise mai ek gynecologist hoon, yeah maybe aap ek teacher honge, aap ek engineer honge, ya IT mein honge, ek bank professional mein honge, ek as female lady jo pregnant ho gayi hai ya pregnant hai, toh woh subah se shaam bandi subah se shaam chair par baithi hoti hai toh physically koi proper activity nahi ho pati hai. A ur shayad aap ye jante honge ki jab hum physical activity hain toh hamari puri body ka blood circulate hota hai toh obviously jaise hum daud ke aaye kahin se toh aap dekhte ho redness, pura chehra red ho jata hai iska matlab ki blood circulate hota hai toh same way jab aap physically active hote ho toh aap ke bachche tak bhi blood flow acchaa jata hai. Toh aap jo bhi khaoge aap ka nutrition, aapke vitamins, minerals wo sara kuch aapke bacche tak pahuchega. Toh physically active hona bahut saari exercise hai jo ek pregnant lady, uske bache ke liye bahut hi jyada important hai, yoga hai jo aap jaan sakte ho aap kar sakte ho. Iske baad chauthi baat kare hum toh theek kaunsi care chahiye toh breathing techniques, aap jante ho ki oxygen hamari har cell ke function ke liye bahut important hoti hai toh oxygen hamare bacche tak kaise jayegi ye hamare body ke kisi bhi organ tak kaise jayegi, toh aap jab gehri saans lene ki exercise karte hain deep breathing karte hain just oxygen ander jayegi carbon dioxide or toxins niklenge aur woh aap ki pregnancy ko healthy banayenge aapke bacche ki growth ko increase karaenge. And last but not the least or I can say the most important thing is ki aap mentally kya think karte ho uss pregnancy are pregnancy hone ke just pehle se hai aap ki thinking kaise rehti, hai aap kis baare me sochte ho, aapka mental attitude kya rehta hai yeh bahut hi jyada important hai. Abse jo 4 humne pehle ki hamne care ki medical care, nutrition diet care, aapki physical activity ya exercise, yoga care, ya aapse breathing technique oxygen jyada pahunchne ki ye saari care aapke bacche ki body ko accha banaegi. Toh aapka baccha aapko chahiye intelligent bhi, emotionally stable bhi, happy child aapko chahiye toh zaroor aap dhyan rakhe ki aapka uss samay thinking kaisi chal rahi hai, aapki positive thinking aap ki pregnancy ko, aapke bache ko uski puri life ke liye bahut kuch de sakti hai, ek positive life pura jo aap nine-month jis tarah se rahoge aapka mental attitude jo rahega wo aapke bachche ka 9 months ko carry karega.

Teenage Pregnancy - What Are the Problems Associated?

Teenage Pregnancy - What Are the Problems Associated?

Poor sex education and awareness can lead to pregnancy in the teenage years, which continues to be a problem that affects almost all countries. In fact, USA is the leader in teen pregnancy with most cases. As per records, about 35% of the girls get pregnant at least once before they reach 20 years of age.
This is a problem for the mother and for the child and is a social menace. Read on to understand a little more on how it affects both.

How it affects the mother?

  1. Teenage pregnancy is a result of negligence and poor awareness in most cases. The chances of habits like smoking, alcohol abuse and drug abuse are quite high in these mothers, which have adverse effects on the fetus during pregnancy. This also means their responsibility in terms of sufficient prenatal care, nutrition, and overall care for themselves and the child would not be optimal.
  2. Higher rates of maternal death: If girls who are less than 15 years of age get pregnant, the death rate is quite high. In addition, there is also poor weight gain, anemia, pregnancy-induced hypertension, STDs (sexually transmitted diseases). All these can have an effect on the child including low birth weight, vital organ malformations, congenital disorders, respiratory distress, and very high levels of infant mortality.
  3. With the added responsibility of the child, the chances that the teenager would go to school after childbirth and complete education and look into employment are also reduced drastically.
  4. Very often, teenage mothers also tend to remain single, as the child is usually born out-of-wedlock and is a result of negligence.
  5. The chances of having children later in life is also reduced, given all the changes that she goes through early on in life.

How it affects the child?

  1. As a corollary to the effects on the mother, the first effects include low birth weight, malformation of vital organs, inadequate healthcare, and even very high rates of infant mortality in the first year of life.
  2. Other medical conditions like chronic respiratory problems, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, and blindness are very common.
  3. There could also be developmental issues like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other
  4. Given the social circumstances in which they are born, they are more exposed to early motherhood, single parenthood, broken marriages. This affects the regular parenting care that they receive resulting in improper nutrition and healthcare.
  5. Again, the poor social set-up also does not ensure sufficient education opportunities for the child. They may also get into child labor and become easy prey to neglect and abuse.
  6. The chances of girls born to teenage mothers themselves becoming teenage mothers is also quite high, leading to a vicious cycle.

Most countries are trying to fight this social menace by involving families, schools, and healthcare professionals, and running social campaigns and programs. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.
