Know About Transvaginal Mesh & Its Complications

Transvaginal mesh is a surgical mesh used to treat stress-related urinary incontinence, a condition where women, particularly those post-childbirth, experience urinary leakage from the bladder during high-impact activities such as running or jumping. Around 20% of women suffer from this problem, and surgery using a transvaginal mesh provides a low-complication method for treating the incontinence problem. But all this information only scratches the surface of the transvaginal mesh. The topic needs to be delved into deeply to understand the usage of transvaginal mesh, its uses and complications, and the reasons for the ongoing controversy in gynaecological treatment. With inputs from the best gynec laparoscopic surgeon in Mumbai, Dr. Neelima Mantri, we provide the complete information you need in this blog. Read on:

What Causes Cephalopelvic Disproportion?

Cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD) refers to a situation where a mother’s pelvic structure is mismatched with the dimensions and form of her baby’s head, rendering natural delivery difficult or impossible. Cephalopelvic disproportion can result from diverse causes, such as the infant being comparatively larger, fetal positioning abnormalities, unconventional pelvic structures, or maternal conditions that entail possessing a narrow pelvis. To ensure a safe and successful delivery, healthcare professionals need to understand the underlying reasons behind CPD and be able to identify potential risks while devising appropriate management strategies.

  • Cephalopelvic disproportion, a condition where the fetal head is too large for the birth canal, often stems from fetal macrosomia – an anomaly where the baby has an excessively large body size. The outcome could be linked to maternal elements, including gestational diabetes or increased weight during pregnancy. Fetal macrosomia increases the chances of cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD) due to the possibility of the infant’s head being too large to pass through the mother’s pelvis.
  • Certain fetal positions, like breech or transverse, may cause a size difference between the baby’s head and the mother’s pelvis. Sometimes, when the infant’s head and the mother’s pelvic region do not align correctly, it can m

Amniotic Fluid Embolism: Causes and Treatment

Pregnant women may have amniotic fluid embolism (AFE), an uncommon but potentially fatal condition that can happen just before, during, or right after labour and delivery. The majority of the time this happens during labour. It is believed that in this illness, a pregnant woman experiences an intense allergic response to amniotic fluid or other fetal substances that enter her system, such as fetal cells. Life-threatening consequences can include breathing issues, cardiac arrest, and severe bleeding. Researchers and female gynecologists in Mumbai do not fully comprehend why some pregnant women experience this reaction to amniotic fluid or fetal cells entering the mother’s bloodstream. Amniotic fluid embolism is a medical emergency that can be lethal and occurs abruptly and quickly. Early detection and quick supportive care are vital.

The Causes

Amniotic fluid embolism’s precise etiology is unknown, although several risk factors could raise a woman’s likelihood of developing this issue during childbirth. Healthy women may experience AFE during labour, following atypical vaginal delivery, during the second trimester of pregnancy, or following a cesarean section. It might potentially happen up to 48 hours after birth. The root cause of

Asherman’s Syndrome: What are it’s Symptoms & Treatment?

Asherman’s syndrome is a condition that leads to infertility or miscarriage due to the formation of scar tissue inside the uterus. This condition is also referred to as intrauterine adhesions (IUA). Dr. Joseph Asherman, who described this condition in 1948, named it after himself. Medical attention is necessary as this condition can cause a range of symptoms.

Symptoms of Asherman’s Syndrome

Asherman’s Syndrome can produce various symptoms that depend on the amount of scar tissue formed. These symptoms may involve:

1. Causing infertility:

Asherman’s Syndrome is among the main causes of infertility in women, and it is not easy to get pregnant without undergoing treatment.

2. Irregular menstruation:

Women who have Asherman’s Syndrome may have irregular menstrual cycles, including light or missed periods.

3. Painful periods:

Adhesions in the uterus can cause menstrual cramps, leading to painful periods.

4. Recurrent miscarriages:

Asherman’s syndrome can cause recurrent miscarriages, which can be emotionally devastating for women.

5. Pelvic pain:

Women with this condition may experience chronic pelvic pain due to adhesions. Abnormal vag

What Are The 4 Stages Of the Menstrual Cycle?

A woman’s body undergoes a monthly hormonal process known as the Menstrual Cycle, which readies it for the potential of pregnancy. The duration of the cycle varies from one woman to another but typically lasts between 28-32 days. According to the top 10 gynecologists in Mumbai, the Menstrual Cycle consists of four distinct phases, each with its specific characteristics and alterations.

Stage 1: Menstrual Phase

The first stage of the Menstrual Cycle is called the menstrual phase. This phase starts the Menstrual Cycle and lasts between three to seven days. The menstrual phase is characterized by the shedding of the endometrial lining, which lines the uterus, resulting in menstrual bleeding. Low levels of estrogen and progesterone hormones are present in the body during this phase. These hormones regulate the menstrual cycle, and when their levels decrease, the body sheds the endometrial lining. As the lining sheds, it exits the body through the cervix and vagina, which causes menstrual bleeding.

Stage 2: Follicular Phase

The second of the four stages of the menstrual cycle,  the follicular phase is the second stage that occurs after the menstrual phase ends. This phase usually lasts for around 10-14 days and is marked by a surge in estrogen levels in the body.

How to Increase Amniotic Fluid during Pregnancy?

Amniotic fluid is a clear, yellowish fluid in the womb during pregnancy. Thus fluid surrounds the baby in the womb and plays a vital role in the optimal development of the baby. This key fluid is generated by the mother within 12 days of the pregnancy and a mother needs to maintain optimal levels of this fluid for safe pregnancy. Too much or too little – both these conditions can cause complications for the baby. What exactly happens when the optimum levels of this fluid are not met? And how to ensure the right amount of amniotic fluid during pregnancy? Let us know answers from the best gynaecologists in Mumbai Dr Neelima Mantri in this blog.

What is Amniotic Fluid?

The baby in the womb grows in a bag-like structure which is formed by two membranes – the amnion and chorion. The baby grows inside the amniotic sac which is filled with amniotic fluid that is generated as early as 12 weeks into pregnancy. In the early weeks of pregnancy, the amniotic fluid is mostly the water produced by the mother’s body. By 5th month of pregnancy, this amniotic fluid gradually becomes a mix of water and foetal urine, consisting of key nutrients, antibodies and hormones. The baby swallows the fluid and excretes it increasing its volume over time.  This versatile fluid can be said as the bread and butter of the b
