Hypertension In Pregnancy And How To Avoid It?

Hypertension In Pregnancy And How To Avoid It?

Maintaining a healthy blood pressure level is important for everyone. However, in the case of a pregnant woman, high blood pressure can be an added risk to the health of the fetus. High blood pressure or hypertension is defined by a blood pressure reading that is higher than 140/90mmHg. This indicates how much pressure the blood exerts on the walls of the arteries every time the heart beats. There are three different types of hypertension a pregnant woman can suffer from. These include:

  1. Chronic hypertension: This refers to high blood pressure conditions that were existing prior to or in the early days of pregnancy.
  2. Gestational hypertension: Women who develop hypertension after the 20th week of pregnancy suffer from gestational hypertension.
  3. Pre-eclampsia: This is the most severe form of hypertension for a pregnant woman. It may be caused by either of the above types of hypertension and is characterized by the presence of proteins in the urine. It usually occurs after the 20th week of pregnancy.

Some women have a higher risk of developing hypertension when pregnant as compared to others. Some of the factors that could influence this are obesity, a family history of hypertension and being younger than 20 years old or older than 40. Women have a higher risk of suffering from hypertension during their first pregnancy or if they are pregnant with multiple fetuses.

If you suffer from hypertension when pregnant, your baby will not get enough oxygen and nutrients. This can slow the growth of the fetus or cause low birth weight. It can also cause placental abruption and premature delivery. In severe cases, preeclampsia can be fatal for the mother and the baby.

Reducing your risk of hypertension when you’re pregnant is easy. Here are a few tips.

  1. Eat Right: It is natural to crave certain foods when pregnant but you should make an effort to eat healthy. Get plenty of fruits and vegetables and ensure that you have a balanced diet. Avoid processed foods, fried foods, colas and food with a high salt content. It is also advisable to reduce your caffeine intake.
  2. Exercise Regularly: Exercise not only helps you manage your weight but also reduces the risk of hypertension. However, be careful about your exercise regimen. If you have lived a fairly sedentary lifestyle uptil your pregnancy, do not suddenly start anything strenuous. Low-intensity workouts like walking and cycling are ideal for pregnant women.
  3. Reduce StressIt is natural to be worried about being pregnant but this does not help you in any way. The more stress you take on, the higher your risk of hypertension. Hence, avoid stressful situations and try deep breathing exercises and yoga to keep you calm.

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

PCOS - How Treatment Differs For Patients?

PCOS - How Treatment Differs For Patients?

When female sex hormones such as Estrogen and Progesterone are out of balance and male hormone levels such as androgen are elevated within the body, it might lead to PCOD or polycystic ovarian disorder. This may cause the enlargement of the ovaries and numerous cysts to grow on the outer wall of the ovary. These growths can result in painful periods, infertility and several other symptoms because of the abnormalities in the body.

Most common symptoms of PCOS include:
1. Irregular and painful periods
2. Growth of facial and body hair also known as hirsutism (areas such as the face, fingers, toes)
3. Development of acne all over the body including the face
4. Sudden weight gain
5. Mood swings such as anxiety and depression
6. Thinning of hair
7. Pain in the pelvic area

Some of the other less common symptoms of PCOD are darkening of the skin, especially in the creases of the body such as the groin, neck, the area underneath the breasts and sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. Many women diagnosed with PCOD can have children without medical infertility treatment, although many other women tend to have fertility problems.

Causes 
A few underlying factors have been noticed to be common in most cases. Some of these common factors that have been noticed are:

  1. Insulin Resistance: Insulin resistance is a condition wherein the body is either not able to produce enough insulin or cannot metabolize the sugar to produce energy. This results in blood sugar not being used up and thus accumulating within the blood which in turn forces more insulin to be made to compensate. High levels of insulin cause the ovaries to produce too much androgen which may lead to polycystic ovarian disorder. Insulin resistance can also lead to weight gain, which can worsen the symptoms of PCOD.
  2. Hormonal Imbalance: Women with PCOD have imbalances in certain hormones such as raised levels of testosterone, higher levels of prolactin and luteinizing hormone (LH), among others. The exact reasons for these imbalances are unknown. Scientists have suggested that the problem can start within the ovaries, or the part of the brain that controls their production of these hormones.
  3. Genetics: This syndrome runs in families; women with mothers, aunts, and sisters with PCOS have a higher chance of developing PCOD themselves. Genetics have definitely shown to have a correlation with the occurrence of the disorder.

Treatment

PCOD doesn’t have any treatment yet, but the symptoms can be managed through medications and healthy habits. Treatment for PCOD differs for every woman depending on factors such as:

  1. Severity of the symptoms
  2. Condition of the ovaries
  3. Plans to have children in the future
  4. Risk of long term health complications or current problems such as heart diseases or diabetes among others
  5. Some of the basic steps to manage PCOD at home are through weight loss, improving your diet, reducing blood glucose levels, amongst others.

Some medications that may be used to relieve symptoms of PCOD are

  1. Hormonal birth control pills - These regularize the period cycle, help reduce acne and extra hair growth and also help in prevention of unwanted pregnancies.
  2. Anti-androgen medicines - They can block the effects of excess androgen and thus help in reducing hair loss, facial and body hair growth and acne.

Certain medications which are used to treat type-2 diabetes have also been put to the test and have shown effective results in trials. However, these have still not been approved by the regulatory authorities.

Sometimes it takes time for heartbeat to appear. Do TVS sonography to confirm heartbeat. Extra care-be positive, eat healthy and be patient. After 2 weeks, do usg, if no heartbeat on tvs too now.

Very rare chances of pregnancy from intercourse on 28th. But can't say about pregnancy if she had intercourse before in the cycle.

How to avoid pregnancy without using condom and any pills When is the safest time to have sex.
Are cycles regular? Maintain a record of three cycles. Then shortest cycle minus 18 is your first fertile day. And longest cycle minus 10 is your last fertile day. Avoid unprotected sex during these days. Rest are safe days.
