Pregnancy does not only change the life of a woman emotionally, but it also causes some major physical changes in her body. It is important for a pregnant woman to understand these changes and adjust herself, mentally and emotionally, for these changes in her body. Therefore, when you are getting pregnant or even trying to conceive, you need to find out about the changes that your body will go through during the entire term of pregnancy. Some of the common changes, that the body of every pregnant women experience, are discussed below:
Body And Emotional Changes During Pregnancy
Some of the body changes which occur in early pregnancy include sore breasts, mood swings and morning sickness. Besides these, over the entire duration of pregnancy, many other changes occur, like varicose vein, skin conditions, fluid retention, increased urination, constipation, indigestion, cravings for certain foods, stretch marks, changes in sex life (starting from early pregnancy libido), lowering of self-esteem due to gain in weight, contractions, shaking, shivering, and many other similar body changes occur during pregnancy. Once the baby has been pushed out, the body undergoes another set of changes which leaves it sore, hurt and exhausted. However, all of these changes are temporary and within a short while after the delivery, the body reverses most of the effects, although some of the physical changes like weight gain, stretch marks, etc. may be a little difficult to reverse.
Problem Of Infertility
If you have been trying to conceive a baby for quite some time now and have been unsuccessful at it, then maybe there is some internal problem which you may have that may be affecting your fertility levels, thus leaving you incapable of conceiving. There are numerous causes because of which following conception may not be happening.
Ovarian Failure: It is the job of the ovaries to store and release the eggs. These ovaries are supposed to stay active and functional till the age of 40. But in the case of some women, these ovaries stop working before reaching this age, thus leaving the woman with only a few or no eggs at all. The cause of this problem is genetic and may be present since birth or may start during the teen years.
Pelvic Adhesions: These adhesions also have a direct impact on the fertility rate in a woman. These adhesions may also be responsible for ectopic pregnancy. There are surgeries available through which these adhesions can be removed and the chances of conceiving increased.
Blood Pressure: Although the problem of blood pressure, does not directly affect the chances of getting pregnant, but the medication that one takes for keeping this blood flow in check can affect the conception rate. Besides, once pregnant, this problem of fluctuating blood pressure can prove to be quite dangerous and thus needs to be monitored on a constant basis and kept in check under all circumstances in order to avoid the chances of a miscarriage.
Thus, whether you are planning a baby, trying but not getting pregnant, are pregnant or have just delivered a woman’s body changes at every stage.
