pill and pregnancy

There is no risk for you or your pregnancy if you conceive right after you cease taking the pill

There are a lot of rumours and myths surrounding pregnancy and the pill. The truth is, you can conceivably start trying to conceive as soon as you stop taking the pill, although it is is generally recommended that you finish your current cycle of birth control to prevent any unwanted bleeding mid-cycle. In any case, once you have stopped taking your birth control pill, you will know your ovulation is back to normal once you start getting your period regularly. 

pregnancy and sleep

Pregnancy makes it hard to sleep

Between hormonal changes, excitement for the due date, and the reminders from inside, sleep can be hard to find during pregnancy. What's more, it can be hard to even get comfortable enough to sleep given the constant need to pee, the pregnancy aches and pains and digestive discomfort. Overall, the odds are stacked against you finding a restful night's sleep. But finding restful sleep is one of the best ways you can control the tides of anxiety which also come with pregnancy. But fear not and don't feel helpless! There are steps you can take to sleep better during pregnancy.

Insomnia: a mind running when it should be sleeping

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that makes it difficult to fall or stay asleep. When suffering from insomnia, you lay in bed throughout the night unable to finally switch off and find rest. Further symptoms include:

  • Waking up too early
  • Not feeling rested
  • Waking up and not being able to fall back asleep

The effect of insomnia carries over into daytime, depriving you of energy, diminishing your attention span and increasing anxiety. Because sleep is such an essential component of wellness, not being able to find your 7-8 hours of restful sleep every night affects every corner of your health.

Keeping healthy as you age begins with knowing all the facts

Women face unique health risks related to aging. At Ahkami Medical Group, our goal is to help with prevention and health management and we always like to start with a full set of facts in our hands. Here are some unique health risks that women face as they age:

  • Autoimmune disorders: as many as 50 millions struggle with autoimmune disorders, among which as many as 75% are women.
  • Heart health: more women than men die of stroke each year in the United States.
  • Breast cancer: the number 2 cause of death among women.


Why care about bone density?

Commonly referred to as bone density or bone mass, the essential strength of your bones is an indicator of overall health and your likelihood for injury. In general, women have thinner, weaker bones than men; and as women move forward in life toward menopause, the presence of the hormone estrogen, which is partially responsible for protecting bone density, begins to naturally decrease. Statistics show that as many as 1 in 3 women will suffer from osteoporosis, the condition in which bones become weak from loss of tissue.
