Most women want an easy pregnancy, but not everyone gets one. Difficulties during pregnancy are the symptoms or problems that are associated with pregnancy and they could be serious, even potentially fatal problems. Serious problems can cause both maternal death and foetal death if untreated. In this article, we will provide you with the most common causes of pregnancy difficulty which includes infections, miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, post-coital bleeding, uterine rupture, foetal vessel rupture, heavy bleeding, preeclampsia and high blood pressure.
The most ideal thing to do is to call your doctor or health care provider immediately, even if the difficulty seems to have stopped. The condition may turn out to be something minor but it could be a sign of a serious problem.
Another cause of pregnancy difficulties are preeclampsia and high blood pressure. According to research, preeclampsia does not necessarily increase a woman’s risk for developing chronic hypertension or other cardiac problems. Women with normal blood pressure, who develop preeclampsia after the 20th week of her first pregnancy, usually goes away within about 6 weeks after delivery. Some women may be more likely to develop high blood pressure or other heart-related problems later in life. The effects of preeclampsia during pregnancy vary depending on a lot of different factors. Having early and regular check-up is very helpful for you and your baby.
When your blood pressure increases slightly and you are not near the end of pregnancy, have a bed rest to reduce the pressure. If the blood pressure remains normal, pregnancy may be allowed to continue. If you develop signs of preeclampsia, you and your baby will be closely monitored by the doctor. The only cure for preeclampsia is the giving birth of the baby. Sometimes, your health care provider will suggest an early delivery either through induction of labour or a caesarean section.
