Everything you need to know about pregnancy
For couples wishing to have a baby, chances of conceiving are the highest when the expectant mother is under the age of thirty. For that is when she's at her most fertile. Men have a long fertility period, but, the quality of sperm declines as they get older. So to maximise your chances of getting pregnant naturally, it's important to start trying early.
If you don't conceive even after trying for a year or two, it is time to meet your gynaecologist, infertility is defined as the failure to achieve a successful pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected intercourse and regular exposure to sperm, Here are a few things to remember, if you're trying to get pregnant.
Female infertility and ways to treat it
Sanjana and Kiran were a couple who visited the Surya Fertility Centre for the first time in October 2014. They have been married for three years and it was a case of primary infertility. Sanjana faced irregular menstrual cycles. A diagnosis using pelvis ultrasound discovered that her ovarian reserve which is required for generating ovum was less. Doctors suggested some hormonal tests based on the patient's age to detect the required ovarian reserve and other treatment options.
The hormonal blood tests conducted also supported the results of pelvis ultrasound. Kiran's sperm count was normal. The patient was already administered injections to stimulate ovulation and one cycle of Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI).
Treat Endometriosis Before It's Too Late
Fertility is a major issue that af fects parenthood and lives of married couples. Jalaja is a 29 year-old woman who walked into the clinic in November, 2013 along with her husband. The couple was suffering from primary infertility . They were married for five years and had been trying hard to conceive for half a decade.
Before consulting the clinic, they had consulted three gynecologists without any success. When the earlier medical records were examined, she was found to be suffering from grade IV endometriosis. She had already undergone a laparoscopic surgery in the year 2013. But the problem recurred and an endometrial cyst measuring 5 mm that needed to be surgically removed immediately was detected.
Recurrent Pregnancy loss not a barrier to parenthood
Recurrent Pregnancy loss (RPL) also reffered to as recurrent miscarriage or habitual abortion, is defined as three consecutive pregnancy lossesprior to 20 weeks from the last menstrual period. Based ion the incidence of recurrent pregnancy loss stands approximately at 1 in 300 pregnancies. The risk of miscarriage in subsequent preganncies is 30 per cent after two losses, when compared to 33 per cent of three losses among patients without a history of a live birth. This strongly suggest the important role for evaluation after juist two losses in the patients with no prior live births. An earlier evaluation may be further indicated if fetal cardiac activity was identified prior to a loss or if the woman is older than 35 years or if the couple has had difficulty in conceiving.
Don't let age hold you back from Motherhood
Infertility is when a couple fails to concieve after one year of trying. However if the woman is over 35 years of age, It's advisable to start evolution after six months. Those with medical conditions such as absence periods (amenorrhea), sexual dysfuction, a history of pelvic disease or prior surgery, should go infertility evolution immediately.
Woman with high blood pressure or diabetes should consult doctor before conception to ensure health problems are under control. Woman who concive post 35, are more likely to develop these conditions and special monitoring and diagnosis may be recommended during pregnancy.
