A pregnancy is always an additional burden for a woman’s body. During the process of pregnancy, the body of a becoming mother is strained by the growing child, hormonal changes and changes in metabolic processes. All of these factors can bring new issues or worsen preexisting ones. Whenever you have any problem during pregnancy, you should consult a gynecologist.
During pregnancy, it is expected that some symptoms will occur due to normal changes in the body of a woman. Therefore not every symptom is an alarm signal. Nevertheless there are also complications that can develop during pregnancy. Pregnancy complications are health problems that occur or worsen during pregnancy and they can involve the mother's health, the baby's health or both.
Some conditions that already exist before pregnancy or develop during pregnancy may cause serious complications for pregnant women. Examples of common general conditions that can complicate a pregnancy include: 1) heart disease, 2) high blood pressure, 3) kidney problems, 4) autoimmune disorders, 5) sexually transmitted diseases, 6) diabetes, 7) cancer and 8) infections. Besides, there are some diseases that may develop due to pregnancy, for example, 1) gestational diabetes, 2) rhesus incompatibility and 3) eclampsia. A good prenatal care can help detect and treat the problems. Some pregnancy related symptoms like nausea, back pain, breast discomfort, edema in the leg and fatigue are also common during pregnancy. These symptoms are mostly due to normal changes during pregnancy.
It is very important for women to receive health care before and during pregnancy to decrease the risk of pregnancy complications. Sometimes it is hard to distinguish whether a symptom is normal during pregnancy or may be a hint for a complication. Therefore it is always advised to consult a gynecologist when any worrying pregnancy symptom occurs.
