Instead of emphasizing the stresses and strains of motherhood and divisions among mothers, the findings reveal that–regardless of background or life circumstances–mothers across the globe have a great deal in common and derive deep satisfaction from motherhood. But according to the latest survey, around 2 million of the women are childless due to the problems in the pregnancy. Here, I am mentioning you the reasons for pregnancy failures along with there solutions. I feel every woman should read it and should enjoy the experience of motherhood. I feel that if I am able to solve even the problem of one woman then I will be the happiest person in this world.

1. Infertility in Women—
Infertility in the women is found to be the main cause in getting the women pregnant. In spite of the successful intercourse and the transfer of the sperm to the women ovule and even the ovulation takes place but the chromosomes from the women are not indulged in the ovule and as a result the egg fails to develop in the embryo and the pregnancy is found to be failed in such women. Sometimes infertility in the women is found from the birth. But, very rare cases of infertility from the birth were noted.

Pelvic inflammatory disease is found to be one of the major causes of the infertility in women. Pelvic inflammatory disease comprises a variety of infections caused by different bacteria that affect the reproductive organs, appendix, and parts of the intestine that lie in the pelvic area. About 25% of the women who develop pelvic inflammatory disease are found to suffer from the infertility. Pelvic inflammatory disease significantly increases the risk of ectopic pregnancy (fertilization in the fallopian tubes). This infection particularly damages the fallopian tubes and leads to the infertility in the women.

Endometriosis is found to be another cause of infertility in women. Endometriosis is the condition in which the tissue that normally lines the uterus (endometrium) grows on other areas of the body causing pain and irregular bleeding. This damages the egg’s passage. Thus, the transfer of the egg to the fallopian tube is prevented and the pregnancy doesn’t occur.

2. Ovulation Problems—
Ovulation problem is found to be the major and most prominent problem in getting pregnant. About 41% of the women face the problem of ovulation in their life span either temporarily or permanently. Ovulation problem is explained as—the ovaries don’t release an egg each month. Ovulation problems result when one part of the system that controls reproductive function malfunctions. This system includes the hypothalamus (an area of the brain), pituitary gland, adrenal glands, thyroid gland, and genital organs. Ovulation is often the problem in women who have irregular periods or no periods.

In the ovulation the sperm is transferred from the man to the woman but the fertilization of the egg fails. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is a common cause of anovulation and infertility in women. There are several possible ways to attempt ovulation induction in women with polycystic ovaries. Clomid tablets are found to be the best and easiest method to treat the ovulation problems in the women. Clomid is used by women want to become pregnant or having problem in becoming pregnant. Clomid works by causing ovulation to occur.

3. Hormone Imbalance—
Hormonal imbalance causes the pregnancy problems in about 8% women around the globe. Progesterone is the main hormone that is responsible making the problems in the women pregnancy. Progesterone is necessary for the formation of the egg in the female ovum. If the less amount of the progesterone is present in the women body then the formation of the egg fails and as a result women are not able to become pregnant. Progesterone is the female hormone that causes the lining of the uterus to thicken in preparation for a potential fetus. Ovulation may not occur because the hypothalamus does not secrete gonadotropin-releasing hormone, which stimulates the pituitary gland to produce the hormones that trigger ovulation. Thus, you need to consult your doctor to check the progesterone levels in your body, and if are found lower than the standard levels. Then, please ask doctor to prescribe some medicines that will increase the levels of progesterone and help you in becoming pregnant.

4. Poor Nutrition—
Poor nutrition is the cause of many diseases and thus is also related to the pregnancy failures in the women. Proper nutrition is very essential for the women to get pregnant. Lack of nutrition disturbs the formation of egg and thus failure in the pregnancy in noted among the women who are having poor nutrition. Hence to avoid the pregnancy problems, women should take the balanced diet. Women can even contact the dietician for the proper diet to remain fit and fine to get pregnant.

5. Physical Problems—
Painful intercourse in one of the physical problem that leads to the failure in the pregnancy, perhaps due to something physically wrong. It can also be that she is afraid and unable to relax. Thus, these women avoid the intercourse and don’t get pregnant. Physical damages like accidents, sports like weight lifting, cycling may damage the fallopian tube. As a result these women fail in getting pregnant. Sexually transmitted diseases also damage the ovulation by the infection as a result these women fail to carry a child.

6. Sexual Dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction in the women is the problem that arises due to the loss of sensitivity of the female reproductive organ. It is due to the sexual dysfunction that women feels disinterested in the sex. This makes its difficult for the pregnancy to occur. It is necessary for the couple to have sex at least twice in a week to bore a child. But due to the women’s disinterest, couples don’t have sex for months. This results in pregnancy failures.

Remember that all the above mentioned conditions are 100% curable and there also some techniques like sperm transplantations that can also be used to make you pregnant. Thus, don’t get yourself stuck-up with these problems in pregnancy and don’t keep yourself abide from the wonderful experience of motherhood.

Elemental Info About Medical Assistant Code Of Ethics

Each organization whether public or professional has their own standards that safeguards the image of the company. Moreover, values can raise morals.

True enough, the code of ethics in health care is not similar with that of the general ethics, Medical assistants or MAs believe of what they do is their duty to men.” With this moral rule, medical staffs like medical assistants are expected to do the following:

To Stay Loyal To Their Employers
According to the AAMA code of ethics, medical assistants are expected to follow and uphold their honor and the principles of this profession by accepting its disciplines and governing laws.

Moreover, medical assistants are expected to be genuine, dedicated and truthful to their employer. Medical assistants are subject for invalidation and revocation of their license whenever they are proven stealing, black mailing, accepting bribes or performing any other dirty deal.

To Provide Quality Standard Health Care Services
Medical assistants are expected to provide quality health care services and to respect their patients always. Privacy is important to people and medical assistants must be concern with the patient’s privacy whenever and wherever.

Medical assistants should always be polite and pleasant, affectionate and consoling towards patients. They must also put their patients at ease whenever they are experiencing great fear especially before procedures wherein patients often have fears of the unknown. Moreover, they must at all times show sympathy and empathy to their patients. Any lewd commentaries or terms are not allowed because it can result to dejection.

To Be Prepared To Go The Extra Mile
Medical assistants are expected to participate in extra services, aiming to improve the health and well-being of the people in the community. They are expected to participate in voluntary works or community health awareness projects of the government.

To Maintain Secrecy
Unless legally required, medical assistants are expected to keep all interventions and communications with the patient private. Ideally, the information of the client is exclusive for the members of the medical team assigned to the client. The American Association of Medical Assistants is very dogmatic when it comes to this area. Any information that was accidentally given even to the relatives and members of the medical assistant’s family will cause one’s license to be revoked.

To Subject Themselves In Improving Their Skills And Knowledge
For the benefit of self, contemporaries and patients, the medical assistant must seek professional advancement by continuous training and developing of knowledge and skills.

In addition, medical assistants must be open for additional knowledge and information by studying new research and tips by co workers. On the other hand, they must also share to their other contemporaries their learned facts and skills.

Definitely, ethics are very essential to any groups, organizations or association whether social or professional. These codes of ethics preserve the dignity and ideals of the group. Through these codes of ethics, people may have an idea of what to expect to each of their members. Moreover, ethics when strictly implemented can develop the foundation of the organization.

Not only medical assistants but the entire health care professionals are expected to accede and uphold medical ethics. Medical ethics support integrity, uniformity of human beings and respect for the dignity of the patients. Medical assistants and the entire health care professionals are distinguished with other professions because they are committed to the service and to humanity. Certainly, this is one of the many things that medical assistants must regard.

Vaginal Deliveries

Recovery time from a vaginal delivery is usually shorter than the recovery time from a Cesarean section. But sometimes it can take a while, especially if you’ve experienced any lacerations or tears.

The perineum, or the region between the vagina and rectum, is vulnerable to tearing during delivery. Some studies show that women are more likely to tear during their first vaginal delivery, probably because this is the first time the area has been stretched to that degree. But whether it’s your first or your tenth, delivery technique can make a huge difference. One study revealed that if normal, spontaneous vaginal deliveries are unrushed and occur in a controlled setting with a nurse, doctor, or midwife guiding the pushing process, there is a lower risk of obstetrical trauma. Many health experts recommend perineal massage in the weeks prior to delivery as a way to lower the chances of tearing. Unfortunately, some women experience tears despite their own best efforts and the efforts of their health care professional.

Tears and Lacerations

Tears and lacerations vary in severity and are classified accordingly:

• First-degree tears are surface tears that involve the skin of the perineum and the vaginal connective tissue, usually near the vaginal opening. No muscles are involved. Healing time for first-degree tears is rapid, and women usually experience little discomfort. Stitches may or may not be required.

• Second-degree tears are deeper tears that involve the skin, connective tissue, and underlying muscles. Second-degree tears almost always require stitches, and healing time can vary. Most often, the stitches will dissolve on their own. Some women report feeling fine in a matter of weeks, others complain of experiencing pain for longer periods of time.

• Third-degree tears are more severe and involve the skin, connective tissue, and the external anal sphincter muscle, the muscle that you can squeeze to stop yourself from going to the bathroom.

• Fourth-degree tears are the most severe and can involve a tear through both the internal and external anal sphincter muscles and lining of the bowel. These tears often result in the loss of anal sphincter control, as well as fecal urgency and/or incontinence.

While third- and fourth-degree perineal tears are not common, they can happen to anyone. There are a few risk factors which may increase the chances:

• Larger babies

• Occiput posterior deliveries (baby is sunny-side up, or delivered faceup, instead of facedown)

• Nulliparity (delivery of first babies)

• Extended second stage of labor, or if the pushing stage lasts longer than an hour

• Midline episiotomies — unfortunately, some women end up tearing further than the controlled incision

• Forceps delivery

Third- and fourth-degree lacerations can be extremely painful and may interfere with all sorts of activities, including intercourse, for quite some time after delivery. Many women find going to the bathroom, especially having a bowel movement, a huge challenge. One woman with a third-degree tear told me that having bowel movements after her delivery was worse than the actual delivery itself.

The pain can persist for months after the baby arrives. A thorough follow-up is very important, so make sure that you see your health care professional several times after the delivery. Your doctor should examine the area and make sure the anorectal area is functioning properly. For many women, the pain and discomfort will subside within a few months and normal activities, including sex, can be resumed.

Some moms experience uncontrollable gas and/or fecal incontinence down the line. These problems should be brought to the attention of your physician immediately. In some cases, additional treatment may be necessary.

Episiotomies

An episiotomy is a controlled surgical incision made in the perineal area (between the vagina and rectum), prior to the delivery. In the past, the episiotomy was used routinely in order to lower the risk of vaginal tears during deliveries. But because newer studies have shown that these routine episiotomies have no real benefit for the mother, and may actually worsen the outcome and prolong healing time, episiotomies are becoming less common. In fact, several studies reveal that more severe lacerations were associated with the occurrence of an episiotomy.

Despite the new research about episiotomies, some women still get them. And it’s certainly true that in some cases, an episiotomy may be necessary, especially if the baby presents in an unusual position or is overly large; it may also be necessary if the doctor needs to speed up the delivery for health or medical reasons pertaining to the mom and/or the baby.

Recovery from an episiotomy is a lot like the recovery from a tear; it all depends on the extent of the cut or laceration. For most women, the pain and tenderness will subside significantly in one to two months. If a woman experiences a serious tear in addition to the surgical incision, recovery time may be prolonged.

C-section

The recovery from a Cesarean section, or the delivery of a baby through an abdominal incision, varies from woman to woman. In general, recovery time tends to be longer than the time it takes to recover from a normal, vaginal delivery, unless, of course, a severe tear or laceration is involved.

Right off the bat, the incision site will most likely be sore, although some women report that their incision feels numb and tingly. The pain will gradually subside and the numbness should lessen as well (although I’ve spoken to a few women who never fully regained total sensation in that area). Many women also complain of itchiness around the scar during the healing process. If the itchiness becomes intolerable, speak with your health care provider for options. Some doctors will recommend soothing creams, but others do not, so it’s important to get his/her opinion.

Some women who have had a C-section complain of cramps caused by the buildup of gas in the abdomen after surgery. Walking around or light exercise can help. This will usually go away within the first few days post-surgery, but it can linger, especially if you are not moving at all. Speak with your health care professional if it becomes a problem.

Don’t be shocked by the way the incision looks! For many women, seeing a dark red scar on the abdomen can be upsetting. But remember, it fades with time (and will likely look a whole lot better in six to eight weeks) and most doctors make the incision low enough that your pubic hair will eventually cover it.

Certain activities may be difficult right after a C-section; even coughing, sneezing, and laughing can be uncomfortable. Lifting anything heavy is out of the question, and it will be a while before you can have sex again. You also may need to wait to drive a car, especially if you experience pain buckling your seat belt or getting in and out of the car. Getting up and moving are important parts of the healing process, but you shouldn’t expect to run a marathon.

Here’s a good piece of advice: Don’t overdo it! Oftentimes, women don’t seem to realize that they have just had major abdominal surgery and they feel frustrated that they are unable to move around freely or lift heavy things. One woman I spoke to complained that the stairs in her house posed a major challenge. Another woman was upset that she was in too much pain to be able to cook for her older child. It normally takes an average of six to eight weeks to recover completely from a Cesarean, and for some women it can take several months.

Here are a few more tips to help speed your recovery from a C-section:

• Accept help. As simple as it sounds, it can make a world of difference. Many women are used to doing everything themselves. But this is not the time to be superwoman. Husbands, siblings, parents, friends, and even in-laws make great helpers. If they offer, take them up on it!

• Take it nice and slowly. Many women feel okay by that six-to-eight-week mark, but if you’re not among them, don’t do anything that makes you uncomfortable. Overexerting yourself can actually prolong the healing process.

• Don’t neglect your bowels. If you’re taking pain medications, be aware that certain types can cause constipation, which in itself can become a serious problem. Make sure that your bowel movements are regular, and if this starts to become an issue, speak with your health care provider. Stool softeners and laxatives might be necessary.

• Accept the mess. With tons of foot traffic through your home and visits from your extended family, your house may get messy. But you’re recovering, so leave it. This is a great opportunity to ask your mother-in-law to help clean up. Even if the mess causes you stress, it’s better to leave it for someone else to handle than for you to overexert yourself. Believe me, there will be many messes in the future you can dirty your hands with!
