Therefore, people use the morning after pill to prevent pregnancy. The pill helps by temporarily stopping ovulation or slowing down the process of the egg and the sperm from meeting each other. You may experience a few minor side effects, such as nausea, headache, breast tenderness etc. The morning after pill also has social impacts in this society, as it prevents young teenagers from being a parent but also being used as a safety net. Even though the morning after pill is effective, you should think twice before having sex with someone whom you barely know what their sexual background
Literature Review INTRODUCTION Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a popular pregnancy complication which affects 15% of pregnant women worldwide (1). GDM normally associates with both long term and short term morbidity in both mother and child. For example, the mother will deliver baby at high birth weight (macrosomia) which results in the baby being at risk for hypoglycemia, jaundice and birth trauma (2). In longer term, this child is more prone to have abnormal glucose tolerance and develop into diabetes during adolescence (3). Whereas the mother is more likely to have diabetes mellitus (DM) in the future than the mother with normal glucose level during pregnancy.
Breakthrough Bleeding – This is most commonly found to be effective of low doses of birth control. It is believed to be caused by hormones making the endometrial lining thinner and more fragile, and even more susceptible to wear and tear! Studies have shown that the longer you take the pill, the less likely you are to experience breakthrough bleeding, but I wouldn’t want to test that theory out. Mood Swings – Since birth control medications affect your hormones, they also heavily influence your mood. Pill users are twice as likely to be depressed as nonusers, according to research from the Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre in Australia.
In comparison to women/teens in higher income areas, they are more likely to not have a child and to keep their child. From personal experience, pregnancies have become more prevalent at younger ages. It is not a surprise to see someone in grades 8-12 pregnant. Not only are pregnancies seen as altering to someone’s financial situation, it is mind altering. Being between the ages of 17-20 and conceiving a child can be assumed to be very difficult for someone that age to manage.
Alcohol may hurt one baby more than another… When you drink alcohol during pregnancy, the alcohol in your blood quickly passes through the placenta and the umbilical cord to your baby. The placenta grows in your uterus (womb) and supplies the baby with food and oxygen through the umbilical cord” (Alcohol During Pregnancy). Whatever the mother eats or drinks goes directly to the infant through the umbilical cord. So when the mother drinks alcohol it is going to the child. It may or may not affect the child but the risk that they will have a birth defect.
For this reason, obstetric practitioners recommend up to three procedures and only then, as a last resort when the delivery process becomes acute (Hartfield, 2010). The prescription of more medication compared to VB also characterizes C-section. Medications pose a challenge because women that undergo C-section have reported being more lethargic due to the procedure and the care-intensive nature of taking care of newborns. Additionally, post-C-section palliative measures may necessitate dietary and mobility restrictions that may further distress new mothers (Darling,
It may be that your hormones are out of balance, that you are not managing stress and/or, that your thyroid and adrenals are fatigued. Acne is also a common symptom of a yeast infection or candidiasis. As you can see the underlying cause of something as seemingly simple as acne can be more complex than you might realize. Although birth control pills may improve your symptoms for a short time, the imbalances in your body and its overall health continues to decline and the risks of oral contraceptives only compound the
Certain people and groups are vastly more susceptible to caffeine than others as well (Persad, Leeana Aarthi Bagwath). One of these more susceptible groups is pregnant women. According Sarah Russell, a postgraduate student at Vanderbilt University, in her paper on the effects of caffeine on pregnant women, “Recent studies have shown that consuming more than 300 milligrams of caffeine a day will increase one’s chances of a miscarriage, and… high levels of caffeine may also cause birth defects, preterm delivery, reduced fertility and low birth weight.” The paper goes on to state that a fetus takes almost ten times as long to break down caffeine as the adult body does (Russell, Sarah). To explain this further, so as to make it easier to understand, pregnant women can only consume 75% of the amount of caffeine the average person can without risking major problems for the
“The rotavirus vaccination can cause intussusception, a type of bowel blockage that may require hospitalization, in about one per 20,000 babies in the United States” (“Vaccines for Children”). As this is true, logically thinking, one in 20,00 is a very small risk. The likelihood of this occurring is a very slim chance. Children can be tested before they receive shots to determine how their body might react to these chemicals (Merino 10). It can be argued that vaccinations are expensive and may not treat the disease.
Although some parents find it harmful for their children to receive vaccinations, doctors highly suggest them to reconsider that decision due to children catching other diseases in the future, not being able to fight infections, and can save future generations from inheriting the diseases. Many parents find the vaccines to cause more trouble than what they 're worth. It worries doctors that parents do not realize what they are limiting their children from doing because they are scared for the outcome they might receive. Doctors find it rather dangerous to not receive the vaccinations. It is very beneficial to give children the vaccinations, for they will understand when they get older.
