Pregnancy gap is an important part of family planning.
Understand how important the gap between pregnancies is and what factors need to be considered before you get pregnant again.
Why is family planning important?
Knowing whether or not you want to have children in the coming years can help you and your partner prepare for pregnancy or choose a suitable contraceptive.
The timing of your pregnancy is also important.
While you and your spouse may have preferences about how close you want your children to be, some research has shown that how you place a pregnancy can affect both mother and baby.
What are the risks associated with closely spacing pregnancies?
Research suggests that starting a pregnancy within six months of live birth is associated with an increased risk:
Placen'ta for partial or complete peeling of the inner wall of the uterus before delivery (placental abruption).
- Low birth weight
- Birth defects
- Maternal anemia
In addition, recent research suggests that close pregnancies may be associated with an increased risk of autism in second-born children.
The risk is highest in pregnancies that are less than 12 months apart.
Little gap between pregnancies may not give the mother enough time to recover from the pregnancy before moving on to the next one.
For example, pregnancy and breastfeeding can deplete your food supply, especially folate.
If you become pregnant before changing stores, it can affect your baby's health as well as your baby's health.
Inflammation of the genital tract, which develops during pregnancy and is not completely cured for the next pregnancy, may also play a role.
Are there any risks associated with long gap in pregnancy?
Some studies also suggest that long intervals between pregnancies cause concern for mothers and infants, as well as an increased risk of preeclampsia in people without the disease.
It is not clear why long pregnancy intervals can cause health problems.
It is possible that pregnancy may increase the capacity of the uterus to support the growth and support of the fetus, but over time these favorable physiological changes disappear.
What is the best gap between pregnancies?
To reduce the risk of oregnancy complications and other health problems, research suggests that you must wait 18 to 24 months, but less than five years after a live birth, before attempting another pregnancy.
Balancing fears of infertility, people over the age of 35 may consider waiting 12 months before getting pregnant again.
Risks and recommendations do not apply to couples who become pregnant.
If you are healthy and feel ready, there is no need to wait for pregnancy after pregnancy.
Choosing when to have another child is a personal decision.
In addition to the health risks and benefits, you and your partner may consider a number of factors when planning your next pregnancy.
Use reliable contraceptive methods until you decide when to give birth.
What else do I need to know about distance during pregnancy?
This is not the perfect time to have another child.
Even with careful planning, you can't always control when a pregnancy occurs.
Discussing reliable contraceptive options until you are ready to understand and understand the potential risks associated with the timing of your pregnancy can help you make an informed decision about when your family should grow up.
