Pregnancy Needs To Know

There is a lot of homework that needs to be done before planning a pregnancy. Even though it is a hard journey, it will be worth doing.

Here are some tips for a smooth conception:

A: Figure out the date for ovulation: Each ovulation should be about 14 days before your period.

Temperature: Check your temperature in the morning and record it.

Observe the discharge: When you are close to ovulation, the discharge will become clear, smooth, and elastic.

Ovulation test paper: When two colored bands appear, indicates that the peak of LH has appeared it one test line is equal to or darker than the control line which tells you the ovulation will occur within 24 to 48 hours.

Vaginal ultrasound: Vaginal ultrasound is used to detect changes in follicle and endometrial thickening and to observe ovulation.

A: It takes 6 to 7 days at the earliest for the fertilized egg to produce HCG, and the HCG starts to be secreted in large quantities after the egg has embedded in the uterine lining, so if you want to be more accurate, you should wait for 11 days or more.

How long should a couple wait before seeking medical attention if they are not pregnant after normal intercourse?

A: Endometriosis affects 6-8% of women in their reproductive years, 50% of women experience pelvic pain, and more than 50% of women have trouble conceiving. It is mainly due to the pressure on the normal ovarian tissue, which affects the growth and development of follicles and ovulation. It also causes adhesions in the pelvic cavity and obstruction of the fallopian tubes, so that the eggs cannot enter the fallopian tubes after ovulation. Endometriosis is a common female gynecological disease in which active endometrial cells are implanted outside the endometrium.

A: Stress can cause reproductive hormone disorders and affect embryo implantation, and women who are easily stressed are less likely to get pregnant.

A: It is not easy for a woman to conceive if she is too thin or too fat. Moderate exercise during pregnancy preparation and maintaining a standard BMI will improve physical function and help produce quality eggs and increase the chance of conception.

Women’s ovarian function slows down at the age of 30 and declines rapidly after the age of 35, and the lower the chances to get pregnant.

A: If you have ovulation, you will have normal menstruation, but menstruation does not necessarily mean you will have ovulation. The ovaries only secrete estrogen, not progesterone. When estrogen drops to a certain level, the uterus will still shed its normal lining and menstruation will occur. Menstruation without ovulation is caused by polycystic ovary syndrome or high lactogen levels. Even people who have normal periods may experience occasional non-ovulatory cycles.

If there are problems such as blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, or large fibroids, you should seek early treatment from a doctor. If the organ is normal, but not function well, then you can resort to Chinese medicine, as Chinese medicine is mild, which takes at least 3 to 6 months to adjust the body for pregnancy.

A: Alcohol and tobacco are extremely harmful to the development of the fetus, plus it damages both sperm and eggs. Therefore, 3 to 6 months before pregnancy, both husbands and wives should stop smoking and drinking to keep zero concentration of nicotine and alcohol in the body.

A: “Cold uterus” is a major cause of poor health for women. The lack of blood circulation in the uterus will not only cause menstrual pain, but also lead to obesity in the lower body.

  • Don’t sit on cold and humid floors or chairs.
  • Keep your feet, abdomen, and back area warm.
  • Do not take cold showers during menstruation.
  • Change your clothes as soon as possible if it is wet.
  • Avoid having cold foods in general or during your period.

● Tingling, swelling, and itching in your breasts
● nausea and vomiting
● A change in skin color
● Discoloration of the vaginal mucosa
● Easily tired
● Frequent urination

The following are three approaches for polycystic ovary syndrome treatment:

● General treatment: you should actively exercise, reduce intake of high-level fat and sugar food and lower your body weight. This can lead to a decrease in androgen levels, which is beneficial to the resumption of ovulation.
● Medication: The main medication used is oral contraceptives, which can also regulate the menstruation and promote ovulation. It takes about 3-6 months and can be stopped when the hormone test is normal.
● Laparoscopic surgery: If the above two methods are not effective, laparoscopic surgery should be considered. With laparoscopy, the follicles will be punctured to lower the androgen level to achieve successful ovulation.

A: Artificial insemination involves the artificial injection of treated sperm into the woman’s uterine cavity during ovulation. The sperm travels from the uterine cavity to the middle of the fallopian tube, where it fertilizes the egg to form an embryo, which slowly moves to the uterine cavity to develop. In-vitro fertilization is the process of fertilizing an egg with sperm outside of the body and then transferring the embryo into the woman’s uterus for a pregnancy.
