What happens with vision during pregnancy

Hormonal changes during pregnancy affect the operation of all organs and tissues, including the organ of vision. Signs of impairment may be deterioration of vision of distant objects, flashing "flies" in front of his eyes. Sometimes it becomes very sensitive conjunctiva of the eye, and a woman who for years wore contact lenses before pregnancy, during pregnancy can not wear them. These symptoms can occur at any time during pregnancy, they do not necessarily represent any serious impairment, however, understand this can only ophthalmologist.

In any event during pregnancy it is recommended to visit an ophthalmologist twice: at the beginning and at the end - before birth. This is especially significant for women suffering from high myopia. Eyeball they increase in size, the retina (a thin layer of nerve tissue located on the inside back of the eye - this is where the perception of the image and its transmission to the brain) is stretched, stress during labor can occur its detachment, resulting loss of vision. The extended retina occur metabolic disorders (dystrophy), which contributes to further thinning. Any disease of the retina significantly affect vision.

Retinal detachment - is a serious complication that can occur at high physical exertion, including during labor. Therefore, women with a high degree of myopia is often recommended for a caesarean section. Symptoms of retinal detachment Retinal detachment - it is not necessary to delay the operation  Retinal detachment - it is not necessary to delay the operation
 : Distorted contours of objects appear blurred or dark spots before the eyes, which did not move when I looked.

Macular degeneration can also occur in diabetes Diabetes - threatening and incurable disease  Diabetes - threatening and incurable disease
 , Stroke, cardiovascular disease.

During a routine inspection ophthalmologist detects the presence of a pregnant woman and her degree of myopia, looks at the condition of the blood vessels of the eye fundus reveals the presence of delaminations and sprains of the retina.

What should be done to preserve vision during pregnancy

First of all, you need to visit an ophthalmologist and perform all of its recommendations. If small and myopia ophthalmologist revealed during the inspection of the fundus changes, to prepare for the high loads during childbirth can be with special physical exercises. First you need to go through the school of motherhood, learn how to breathe correctly How to breathe correctly - modern and traditional techniques  How to breathe correctly - modern and traditional techniques
   and to push during delivery. It is very important to preserve the view, after all the efforts of women should not be sent up to the head, and down to the expulsion of the child from the birth canal. If a woman makes an effort properly, the voltage goes to the head, the blood rushes to it, including the blood vessels in the fundus of the eye that can cause them to rupture and hemorrhage.

In addition, it is necessary to do and special exercises for eyes that can prevent the spread of myopia. For example, this: on the window in his room to stick on the glass is small, less than a centimeter in diameter, a circle of bright colored paper and use it to perform special exercises several times a day. Perform each exercise as follows: at a distance of about 30 cm from the pasted circle close one eye, hand, and the other to look at the queue is in the circle, then an object outside the window, located as far as possible; then do the same exercise with the other eye.

But if myopia progressing and the fundus there is a change, the ophthalmologist can offer a woman with short-sightedness Myopia - when visual acuity falls  Myopia - when visual acuity falls
 Planning pregnancy, laser vision correction. This procedure requires special equipment, but for the patient it is not traumatic, as carried out quickly and painlessly in a clinic. Under the influence of the laser beam retina becomes stronger and less prone to stretching and detachment. In some cases, after such an operation, a woman with severe myopia permit the natural childbirth cesarean section instead. Laser vision correction should be done before pregnancy, during pregnancy as a barrier to its implementation can be a pain relief - it is not always safe for a pregnant woman.

Pregnancy - a time when women need particular care of their health, including vision.

Magne B6 during pregnancy: important and useful

 Magne B6 during pregnancy
 The combination of magnesium and vitamin B6 positively affects the metabolism of the cells of the uterus, as well as its muscle contractility. Therefore, Magne B6 is often prescribed during pregnancy for a long period of time, combining, as appropriate, taking it from taking other medications.

What is the effect of magnesium on the body of a pregnant woman

Magnesium is an inorganic element, participates in all biochemical processes that occur in the human body. It is present in all cells of the body, thereby maintaining proper metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
 . Magnesium ions reduce the excitability of the nervous system, is maintained in good condition the muscular system, while suppressing increased muscle excitability, which is very important during pregnancy (suppression of the threat of termination of pregnancy).

Pregnant woman gets magnesium from food and if it is not enough (magnesium many in plant foods - bran, beans, dried fruit), then there are symptoms such as muscle weakness, a feeling of constant fatigue, a tendency to twitch muscles, insomnia, palpitations with cardiac rhythm. Furthermore, there may be such disorders of the gastrointestinal tract as loss of appetite, nausea and diarrhea.

Magnesium deficiency can be confirmed by laboratory tests. It is considered a moderate deficit of the presence in the blood of 0.5-0.7 mmol / L magnesium lower figures show pronounced deficiency of magnesium. Such a deficiency can occur due to violations of exchange of magnesium in the body or due to lack of receiving it with food. Pregnant women need more magnesium, so that in either case it is necessary to make up the deficit.

Magne B6 during pregnancy

Magne-B6 is a combined preparation, which consists of a magnesium salt and vitamin B6. This combination is best as vitamin B6 contributes to a better absorption of magnesium by taking part in many biochemical metabolic processes. It also contributes to the retention of magnesium in cells, especially cells of the nervous and muscular tissue, thus regulating the functioning of the nervous and muscular system.

It is very important during pregnancy because the increased neuromuscular activity can lead to increased muscle contractile activity of the uterus (uterine tone), that is, the threat of miscarriage. This state (raising the tone of the uterus), and contribute to anxiety Anxiety - how to distinguish normal from disease?  Anxiety - how to distinguish normal from disease?
 Bad mood (depression) of the pregnant woman, her overexcitement, internal tension, lack of confidence.

A uterine tonic pregnant woman feels that her tummy is strained, as if petrified. This can occur nagging abdominal pain Abdominal pain: when to sound the alarm?  Abdominal pain: when to sound the alarm?
   and in the lower back. In this case, the woman should try to relax by taking a sedative (such as valerian root tincture), antispasmodic (eg, papaverine Papaverine - for pain caused by spasms of smooth muscles  Papaverine - for pain caused by spasms of smooth muscles
   in the form of rectal candles - it will remove muscle spasm) and some time to comply with bed rest.

Perfectly it operates in such situations and Magne B6, which also calms the nervous system and reduces the tone of the uterus. The mechanism of action Magne 6 in this case is that it displaces the calcium from muscle cells, which is the main cause contraction of muscle fibers (of magic is a calcium antagonist). Furthermore, the decrease in blood calcium contributes to the fact that reduced danger of thrombus formation. A vitamin B6 reduces the excitability of the central nervous system, which also has a positive effect on the tone of the uterine muscle.

Magne-B6 is prescribed for a long time, sometimes for the entire pregnancy. But even this seemingly innocuous drug should not be taken alone: ​​any drug during pregnancy appoint a doctor. If a pregnant woman at the same time accepts and other vitamins and minerals, the doses of these drugs are adjusted by your doctor.

After ingestion Magne B6 is well absorbed in the small intestine, while in the blood comes up to half of the magnesium contained therein. Magnesium blood enters the tissues of various organs, primarily in the bone tissue. In addition, many magnesium enters the muscle cells and erythrocytes. Displayed magnesium excretion, with more than half of it comes back from the kidneys into the blood, and only a minor part is eliminated.

Vitamin B6 after getting into the blood undergoes a series of transformations, thereby converted into the active form of the vitamin, which is involved in metabolic processes.

Magne B6 manufactured by the French pharmaceutical company Sanofi - Aventis group. This drug, which is vital during pregnancy.
