MEDICAL CONDITIONS & TREATMENTS
One of the most common problems of women is Placenta Praevia. This occurs during a pregnancy when the placenta grows in the lowest part of the womb (uterus) and obstructs its opening to the cervix. The placenta lies in the lowest part of the womb at the initial stage of pregnancy but as the womb continues to develop the placenta moves to the top of the womb. The state when the placenta doesn’t change its position is called Placenta Praevia. Also, it can be the biggest threat for the mother and baby as sudden it leads to sudden bleeding.
Preeclampsia is complicated state of pregnancy occurred due to high blood pressure and protein in the urine. Other characteristics of preeclampsia are, complain of blurred vision, headaches, and excessive weight gain. The illness is grave and generally develops after the 20th week of pregnancy. Common in first pregnancy, the disease, in serious condition, can damage the maternal endothelium, kidneys and liver. Blood cell breakdown, kidney dysfunction, low blood platelets, abnormal liver function, shortness of breath or visual disturbances mean preeclampsia can badly hamper the state of the mother and baby. The risk of being left untreated is eclampsia, which account for up to 20 per cent of all deaths that occur in pregnant women.
Ovarian hypofunction is the state of ill health when the functioning of ovaries are reduced, which lead to cause a decrease in production of hormones. Women with ovarian hypofunction may experience symptoms of menopause and find it difficult to get pregnant.
