Post Pregnancy Health Issues—How To Spot Trouble?

Delivering a baby…the thought of the procedure and pain itself sends many people into a panic. After, it is nothing short of a miracle to perform. But despite the difficulties and risks, most of us don’t hesitate to bring a new life into our world. unfortunately, the struggle doesn’t end there. Many health issues can rise post pregnancy, and knowing what to look out for can help a great deal…

When your post-delivery body is not changing back

Without a doubt, the body of a woman changes during her pregnancy. And sometimes, the changes are drastic. While this is nothing to be worried about, what you should be worried about, is if your body isn’t changing back after the delivery. Some women begin slimming down and returning to looking how they are within days; but this happens pretty rarely. You should only begin to worry if there are no changes even after a few months after your delivery. Ask your doctor permission and begin exercising in the time they recommend. More often than not, you’ll be advised to try sit down exercises before moving up to other, regular, exercising. Click here for more details regarding sit down exercises.

When it gets uncomfortable to sit

Whether you’ve been through a natural delivery or had to have a C-section done, you are definitely going to feel uncomfortable sitting down, bending and squatting for a while. After all, delivering a baby is no easy feat—so this is pretty normal. But if you feel extremely uncomfortable sitting down, or you feel like you’re sitting on an egg (that disappears when you stand up or lie down), or even if you are feeling a discomfort or pain in the lower abdomen or vagina, then you need to set an appointment with your doctor. Some bladder prolapse stages can be identified with these symptoms.

When you feel like everything is just going wrong sometimes, the health issues that we face is not only the physical ones. Postpartum depression is fairly common now-a-days; and it can happen both during the pregnancy and after the delivery of the baby. If you’re feeling a prolonged period (even as short as two weeks) of sadness, irritability, anxiety, or if you find yourself having frequent episodes of crying; these can be considered as symptoms for it. Apart from it, there’s also change in sleeping pattern, lack of hunger or drastic changes in eating pattern and also a reduced desire for sex that suggests the same. If you suspect you are going through this, don’t hesitate to get yourself professional help. It’s worth noting that even new fathers can be affected by it. So it’s a good idea to keep an eye on your partner as well…
