Riding A Two Wheeler While Pregnant
As per the fertility method I had intercourse intercourse during the ovulation period and now it’s already a week after my last intercourse, being a lecturer in the college I have to travel by my two wheeler. Will it bring difficulty in conceiving a child? Should I take care of? I can’t walk since it’s too long from my home and I need to take care of other family requirements so most of the time I will be using two wheeler. Please advise regarding this and what care should I take?
If you get pregnant talk to your doctor before riding a two wheeler. Most women are fine but some doctors do not recommend travelling on a two wheeler if there is a history of miscarriage or for long travels and if there is any spotting, high blood pressure, dizziness and feeling of fainting. Road bumps can cause too much pressure of the uterus and put the pregnancy at risk.
If your doctor allows you to use a two wheeler, make sure to use all the safety precautions like wearing a helmet.
There are many things to consider:
Avoid the road when it is raining because eit is more dangerous and if you fall you can put your pregnancy at risk.
If the weather is too hot you may become dehydrated soon and the heat may make you feel dizzy. The pregnancy hormones make you more sensitive to heat.
Avoid cold weather especially late during the day. You don’t want to catch a chill.
Find put the quickest road to work, but the safest for you.
