I am a lady aged 23 had an abortion with kontrac pills at 10 weeks I had a bleeding one day and it stopped the whole week then the second week had the bleeding again the whole week so on the third week I tested and am still pregnant what should I do?

Hello, It's important that you get your blood for hemoglobin and usg lower abdomen done. It's prudent that you rule out retained products of conception which may lead to prolonged bleeding and infection. Get the report evaluated by a local gynecologist for further management.

Types Of Hypertensions Experienced During Pregnancy

Types Of Hypertensions Experienced During Pregnancy

Hypertension or high blood pressure is common in pregnant women, even in those who have no previous history of high blood pressure. This leads to complications in about 6% to 10% of all pregnancies around the world. High blood pressure may develop before or after conception and as such needs special medical attention.

Hypertension prevents sufficient flow of blood to the placenta and this inhibits the normal growth of the fetus. This could result in low birth weight of the child. However, if diagnosed in time and treated properly, hypertension does not affect the child's health too much.

There are various types of hypertension during pregnancies, such as:

1. Gestational hypertension

This type of hypertension is developed about 20 weeks after conception. There is no abnormality in urine or any signs of other organ damage (as is common with hypertension during pregnancy) but the condition can worsen and complicate very quickly. Pregnant women below the age of 20 and above the age of 40 are often diagnosed with high levels of blood pressure. Women who have heart or kidney conditions before pregnancy and women carrying more than one child are also likely to develop gestational hypertension.

2. Chronic hypertension

Chronic hypertension is high blood pressure which develops around 20 weeks before conception and does not normalize within 12 weeks after childbirth. The patient may also have been suffering from high blood pressure for a long time but the complications appear only during pregnancy because high blood pressure rarely exhibits symptoms without an associated condition.

3. Chronic hypertension superimposed with Preeclampsia

Women who have hypertension before pregnancy may develop even higher blood pressure levels during pregnancy. This leads to several health disorders like frequent headaches, fatigue and depression. Sometimes, protein is found in the urine.

4. Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia is often a serious complication of gestational pregnancy and affects about 5% to 7% of all pregnancies globally. Gestational pregnancy does not always develop into preeclampsia but it needs to be diagnosed and treated in time to avoid the complication. Women who have conceived for the first time or have a history of hypertension in the family are at a greater risk of preeclampsia.

The symptoms of the condition are throbbing headaches, blurred vision, nausea and vomiting, pain in the upper abdominal region and shortness of breath.

Avoid papaya at this time. Don't worry. If you had small amount of curry. Start taking garbha plus syrup (maharshi badri) 2tsf twice a day empty stomach throughout your pregnancy for maintaining healthy pregnancy.

Hello. You are having obstetric cholestasis of pregnancy. Your doctor has prescribed you udiliv which contains ursodeoxycholic acid (udca) which is absolutely safe in pregnancy. I am mentioning in detail about obstetric cholestasis: onset: 2nd or 3rd trimester symptoms: severe pruritus that starts on the palm and sole, then quickly becomes generalised. Jaundice occurs in 10% of cases as is due to concomitant extrahepatic cholestasis. Diagnosis: when unexplained pruritus occurs in pregnancy associated with abnormal lft or raised bile acids. Once diagnosis is done lft should be repeated every week. (other causes of pruritus and abnormal lft should be excluded - 1) viral screen for hepatitis a, b, cmv and epstein barr virus 2) liver autoimmune screen for chronic active hepatitis and primary biliary cirrhosis i.e. Anti smooth muscle and anti mitochondrial antibodies 3) liver usg should also be done) fetal outcome: has been associated with adverse fetal outcome like: preterm labour, meconium staining, fetal distress and sudden fetal demise. Treatment: topical emollients, antihistamines and udca which is considered as the drug of choice and is given at 12 -15 mg/ kg body weight in divided doses. Elective delivery beyond 37 completed weeks is advisable after antenatal corticosteroids as stillbirths tend to cluster around 37 to 39 weeks.

Hi Sir, My friend used her husbands condom to put his sperm inside of her. & now she’s terrified because she’s having pregnancy symptoms. Could she even be pregnant. Is that even how it works?

It is unlike for her to be pregnant unless has penetrative sex and it is unclear how she used condom yo put semen inside. Besides, the condoms have some chemical which destroys the sperms.
