When Women Have Baby | Dr. Pallavi Daga

Despite the fact that women have been giving birth for as long as we’ve existed, horror stories abound, leaving many of us terrified of labour.  And some of the biggest concerns revolve around what happens to the vagina - tearing, cutting or simply not returning to how it was before are all worries many women have. The average size of a baby’s head is 11.4 centimetres in diameter. The average diameter of a woman’s vagina (according to a study) is 2.1 to 3.5 centimetres. So who wouldn’t be a bit scared of squeezing a newborn out given that ratio?

But considering women’s bodies are made with the ability to have children, do we really need to be so scared? The truth is that our vaginas are built to bear children and adapt accordingly. Whilst some women are cut to ease the baby’s head out and others have caesareans, through the vagina is the way our bodies were designed to give birth.  You might also find your vagina is somewhat dryer than usual after childbirth: “The vaginal area can feel pain…

Is Sex Supposed To Hurts? | Dr. Pallavi Daga

Is Sex Supposed To Hurts This Much ?
Answer : Sex hurts?  How unsettling! And much more common than you might imagine. Doctors have a name for this; we call it dyspareunia . Most women have gone through a stage in which intercourse is painful; in up to a third of women, this has lasted a long time. 1 There are many reasons why having sex can hurt. Before we look at some of the more common reasons, I’d like to say a word about communication. Sometimes sex is hard to talk about. I’ m very glad you asked your question here. Dyspareunia can be solved, one way or another, for people who are willing to ask about it. One of the key things to learn during your current difficulties is that it’s important to talk with your partner about what is going on. Tell your boyfriend why you like him and what feels good when you are together. But also tell him when something hurts. Learning to work together is an important part of sex.
What might be causing the pain depends on whether sex has always hurt or i…

Pregnancy and Sex Question Answer | Dr. Pallavi Daga

1. Will I have a bowel movement during my delivery?  Dr.Pallavi Daga, one of the best gynecologist in Kolkata,India wants pregnant women to know that birth is not a public performance. So really, you shouldn't worry about pooping during the pushing phase of labor. It can happen if your bowel is full because the rectum is underneath the uterus, and when you push, you put pressure on that area. Still, try to remember that the people in the delivery room are there to support and help you, and that medical professionals are cognizant of people's dignity and privacy. So, focus on your baby, not your bowels.
2. Will I get stretched out "down there?" The short answer: no. Your vagina is made to stretch to accommodate childbirth and then contract back to its normal size. Indeed, your vagina has muscle memory! Dr.Pallavi Dagarecommends doing Kegel exercises to strengthen those muscles. Basically, you'll clench that area as if you were holding back a stream of urine, then re…


Q. My husband says I’ve started snoring, but I’ve never been a snorer. Why now? Gynaecologist Dr Pallvi Daga says that some pregnant moms start snoring owing to: ·Weight gain ·Water retention ·Softer and swollen nasal cavities from hormonal changes. ·Your baby pushing against your diaphragm is another reason. When your hormones and weight return to normal after birth, you’ll probably stop snoring. Q. I’m scared my waters will break when I’m in public. What will it be like? “Hollywood movies make us think that labour almost invariably starts with the waters breaking, says Dr.Pallvi Daga. “But less than 20% of moms experience this.”
“Usually waters start as a slight trickle after breaking, giving mom enough time to get home or to the hospital. Although the classic gush in public is unlikely, nobody will judge you for a natural and quite exciting experience. They’ll be helpful. Q. Will I be shaved for the birth? “This is an old practice that is no longer used,” says Dr.Pallvi Daga. “The idea that…
