Pregnancy

Pregnancy is typically divided into 3 trimesters. The first trimester is from week 1 through 12. During the first trimester, the possibility of miscarriage is at its highest. The second trimester is from week 13 through 28. At 28 weeks, more than 90% of babies can survive outside of the uterus if provided with high-quality medical care. The third trimester is from 29 weeks through 40 weeks.

Overview

Prenatal care improves pregnancy outcomes. Prenatal care may include:

  • Taking extra folic acid
  • Avoiding drugs and alcohol
  • Regular exercise
  • Blood tests
  • Regular physical examinations.

Complications of pregnancy may include:

  • Disorders of high blood pressure
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Iron-deficiency anemia
  • Severe nausea and vomiting

In the ideal childbirth, labor begins on its own when a woman is "at term". Pregnancy is considered at full term when gestation has lasted 39 to 41 weeks.

Pregnancy is a risk factor for constipation. Many of our patients with constipation complain that it worsens with pregnancy. In these cases, they may have to take laxatives to help with the constipation symptoms. Usually, we choose simple and safe laxatives that stay only in the ...

Hi S, The withdrawal method is an extremely unreliable method of birth control. If your period has already come, then the chances of you being pregnant is low. However, vaginal bleeding, especially if light spotting, may also be an early sign of pregnancy, which may sometimes be mistaken for...

Great question. This is a complex discussion that requires the input of both your gastroenterologist and IVF doctor. Current evidence states that the transmission of viral hepatitis in assisted reproduction is possible, but the degree of risk is unknown. Your partner who is n...

Dear J Thank you for your question. Candidal yeast infections are extremely common in women, and are easily treated with antifungal medications. However they can reoccur, as in your case. The good news is that this infection is superficial and does not cause any long term dam...

Dear Ria Sorry to hear about your previous history of ectopic pregnancies. This has some relevance since the conditions that lead to an increased risk for ectopic pregnancy are likely to affect both tubes in the pelvis, rather than just one side (since both tubes are connected to...

For women in whom it's their first labour (primigravida) there will usually be some degree of tearing. Some first time mums are lucky and have no tear. For multipara (second time mums and above) tearing is usually minimal and some do not tear at all. This is because the soft tissue...
