Tips for special care during pregnancy
Pregnancy is a beautiful phase in women’s life. Finding out you are pregnant is one of the most exciting and daunting times of your life, even if you have been preparing for it for some time. Get ready for the rollercoaster ride of pregnancy on the road to parenthood. Your pregnancy will be a special experience no matter if you've been through it before, or this is your first time. The thought of growing a baby inside your body until it is ready for independent life may sometimes become almost overwhelming. Joy, relief, excitement and fear are common emotions which can come as quickly as they go. Although at first, forty weeks can seem like an eternity, for most women it goes by pretty quickly.

The next 40 weeks of your life will be an amazing time. You may face pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness, frequent urination, fatigue, mood swings, food aversions and more. Most of pregnancy symptoms are caused by hormonal changes and the extra strain your body is under. They are usually temporary, cause minor discomfort and can be treated simply. Extra care needs to be taken by women during pregnancy.

When the pregnancy test comes back positive, a life-altering journey begins. As the baby grows and changes through each stage of pregnancy, you go through changes, too: in your body, emotions, and lifestyle. You need information to answer your questions and help to make good decisions for a healthy baby and a healthy you. Regular antenatal appointments to check whether you and your baby are well and to spot potential problems before they become serious must always be preferred.

Most pregnancies will continue without any problems at all, however, a small percentage of pregnancies suffer from complications. Pregnancy is a time when a female blossoms into a woman and waits for her turn to become a mother. It enriches a woman with an experience never felt before and prepares her to tend for the new life growing inside her.

There are few experiences in life as powerful as finding out that you're pregnant. It's amazing to think that you have a new life growing inside you. From the moment you begin to feel changes in your body or you know for sure that you're pregnant you may begin to feel protective and look forward to having the baby. You can feel wonderful during your pregnancy if you take good care of yourself.

Increase your odds of a healthy pregnancy by following these pregnancy tips to keep yourself in top condition:

1. Eat five or six well-balanced meals each day. Remember to eat healthy always

2. Take a prenatal vitamin each day as directed by your obstetrician.

3. Drink plenty of fluids at least eight to 10 glasses a day avoiding caffeine and artificial colouring.

4. Don't drink alcohol

5. Don't smoke or allow yourself to be exposed to second hand smoke.

Treatment for Genital tuberculosis in Males and Females
Tuberculosis is a rampant disease in developing countries like India-and one that cuts across all classes. Tuberculosis of the genital tract occurs quite commonly following tuberculosis infection anywhere else in the body. It mainly spreads through the blood stream to the genital organs. When the infection invades the reproductive system (the genital tract), it commonly targets the fallopian tubes and the uterus and may lower your chances of conception. Women between the age of 20 and 40 years are most susceptible.

Female genital tuberculosis is fast emerging as a major health issue that affects fertility levels in women. Doctors say tuberculosis is a major cause of infection leading to infertility among 25-30% of women in India. There is an increasing trend of genital tuberculosis among women. The infection can attack the ovaries, uterus and tubes leading to infertility problems among women. The disease is also becoming more evident among men causing infertility. Even among men, who are responsible in 50% of infertility cases, tuberculosis is a major reason for infection.

Is it possible that TB increases the infertility issues in couples?

TB (Tuberculosis) is the infectious disease and infertility is the inability to conceive. Yes TB can cause infertility, but usually it does not show any kind of symptoms until the infection has advanced to a severe level and can affect the infertility in women as well as in men. In the woman it causes tuberculosis in uterus and fallopian tubes where as in the man it cause tuberculosis of epididymo orchitis, as a result of which no sperm can get into the semen.

TB only cause infertility when it infects the genital tract, which is very hard to diagnose and called as genital TB. Genital TB is responsible for infertility in 5-10% of women. The only way to diagnose this TB is by culturing the tubercle bacillus from the tissue and sent it to the lab for testing.

What is genital tuberculosis?

Tuberculosis or TB is a bacterium which can affect any part of your body, but most often affects the lungs. The primary infection in the lungs is known as pulmonary tuberculosis. In some cases the TB infection moves through the blood to other parts of the body. It can thus cause secondary infections in the genital tract, pelvic area, kidneys, spine and brain. When the bacterium reaches the genital tract it causes genital tuberculosis or pelvic TB. It affects the genital tract (in both men and women), fallopian tubes, uterus, and ovaries. In some cases it also affects the cervix, vagina and vulva.

How to screen for tubal scarring?

Several methods can help detect the tubal involvement. Sonography helps in diagnosing pus in the tubes, while hysterosalpingography helps to diagnose blocked tubes. Laparoscopy is a direct visualisation of the tubes giving us an opportunity to take a biopsy from the suspected lesions. TB-PCR from the endometrium or the inner lining of the uterus (a tissue sample is taken and cultured to detect the genetic make-up of the bacteria) is a newer test for diagnosis of tuberculosis. Routine blood tests such as CBC, ESR assist in the diagnosis. Permanent damage may be avoided if anti-tubercular drugs are started in the early phase of the disease.

If a family member or colleague is an active TB patient, then people around them need to be cautious and should go for tests like chest X-Ray, tuberculin test to know whether they have been hit by TB or not. Two out of 10 women suffering from TB cannot bear children. Doctors say that nearly 90% of women with genital tuberculosis (GTB) are diagnosed in the 15-40 years age range. Infertility on account of GTB is 40-80%. Experts say that with advanced medical treatment now available, if the diagnosis is early enough, GTB can be treated and the woman can regain fertility.

Various patients neglect the diagnostic test for TB when they are unable to conceive, but it might be the major cause for your infertility problem. So it would be good to test and ensure the root cause of infertility. Rupal Hospital for Women is a premier leader in women's healthcare since 45 long years and is committed in providing women with the highest quality and most advanced healthcare throughout all stages of their lives. The team of doctors at Rupal Hospital believes in the power of information and in spreading education to patients.

If the patient is detected with genital tuberculosis, we advise them to complete the entire course of the treatment. It is a course of antibiotics that lasts about six to eight months. We at Rupal hospital make them aware that once the course for GTB is over there are chances of achieving normal pregnancy.

Most Common Early Signs of Pregnancy
When a woman finds out that she is pregnant, it can be the start of a remarkable, life-changing experience. The first changes a woman is most likely to experience when she is pregnant are a missed period followed by a positive pregnancy test. Pregnancy tests, whether done at home or at a doctor's office, measure the amount of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in a woman's urine or blood. This hormone is released when a fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the uterus. Urine pregnancy tests can detect levels of hCG about 10 days after conception, while blood tests usually done at a doctor's office, can detect a pregnancy about seven to 10 days after conception. Testing too soon can produce a false negative result.

Every woman is different. So are her experiences of pregnancy. Not every woman has the same symptoms or even the same symptoms from one pregnancy to the next. Some women experience many signs and symptoms very early in pregnancy, while others experience very few or even none. The earliest symptoms of pregnancy can appear in the first few weeks after conception. Here's what you might experience, missed period, nausea and tender breasts to dizziness and mood swings. To confirm pregnancy use a home pregnancy test, if the result is positive be sure to see your healthcare provider as soon as possible. The earliest symptoms of pregnancy can appear in the first few weeks after conception. Some symptoms show up when you have a missed period or a week or two later. In fact 7 out of 10 women’s have some symptoms by the time they are 6 weeks pregnant. If you have no track record of your menstrual cycle or have delayed periods then if following symptoms surface, you might be pregnant.

Knowing that you are pregnant the first thing that you need to do is to consult your physician. You can either consult your local medical practitioner or you can approach the gynaecologist in any maternity home and get your regular checkups done over there during your pregnancy. You can have a detailed knowledge of what services will be provided by maternity home at http://www.rupalhospital.com/obstetrics_maternity.html#

Here's what you might experience, from nausea and tender breasts to dizziness and mood swings.

1. A positive home pregnancy test

The home pregnancy test taken after a missed period or after 8 to 10 days from the missed period will tell you whether you are pregnant. Remember that a baby starts to develop before you can tell you're pregnant, so take care of your health while you're waiting to find out. Once you've gotten a positive result, make an appointment with your practitioner.

2. Missed Period

A missed period is one of the surest signs of pregnancy. A missed period might make a woman wonder if she could be expecting. However, there are other reasons for missing a period. Perhaps a woman is not keeping track of her menstrual cycle, or maybe its length is irregular from month to month. Other explanations for why a woman could be late include excessive exercise, gaining or losing too much weight, stress, illness or breastfeeding, according to the National Institutes of Health. In this case, tender breasts, feeling queasy and making extra trips to the loo may be early clues that you’re pregnant.

Male Infertility – IVF IUI Procedure – Male reproductive system
Male infertility refers to the inability of a male to contribute to conception with a fertile female. Infertility has traditionally been thought of as a woman's problem, but as it turns out, men don't get off that easily. About one out of every three cases of infertility is due to the man alone, and men are somehow involved in infertility about half the time. A diagnosis of male infertility can be one of the hardest challenges a man can face. For some, it can be devastating. Not being able to father a child can make a man feel like he’s failing at one of his most primal responsibilities.

Advances in male infertility treatment offer real help to the males to become fathers. Male infertility is due to low sperm production, misshapen or immobile sperm, or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm. Hormonal problems, illnesses, injuries, chronic health problems, lifestyle choices and other factors can play a role in causing male infertility. Not being able to conceive a child can be stressful and frustrating, but a number of male infertility treatments are available like surgery, medication, IUI, IVF and ICSI.

Lifestyle factors affect fertility. As most lifestyle factors can be modified, providing advice and support in making healthy lifestyle changes can promote fertility. The evidence relating to the effects on fertility of caffeine, alcohol consumption and smoking are discussed here. Recent Male Infertility study suggests some new facts which are must read and interesting for anyone trying to get pregnant or start creating family.

A prospective dad must consider his health as important in the journey of parenthood. The biggest cause of infertility in men is abnormal sperm. Sperm can be affected by lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking alcohol, taking drugs, exposure to chemicals, caffeine consumption and lack of exercise and balanced diet.

Mobile phones kept in pockets of trousers

Use of laptops on the lap

Lifestyle factors and modern technology plays a massive role on sperm production and has played a major role in male infertility. The use of laptops on the lap and mobile phones in the trousers pockets are considered to be playing with male fertility. To know the impact and effects of laptops on lap, mobile phones in the pockets and lifestyle factors on sperm reduction and male infertility read the whole article at https://rupalhospital.wordpress.com/male-infertility

Even barring all the scientific evidence, it simply makes sense that laptops, cell phones and other wireless technology can impact the human body once you understand that your body is bioelectric. When you are trying to conceive, it's always better to play it safe. The researchers who conducted the study recommend that men who want to be fathers should work with their laptop on a desk or table, rather than on their lap and avoid the use of cell phones with Bluetooth devices and avoid keeping it in pockets trousers.

When faced with the problem of not conceiving, it is always better to seek the assistance of the doctor. The doctor will help you determine the cause of any fertility problems you may have and at the same time you can discuss the treatments available to increase your chances of conceiving.
