“Impact of Pregnancy on Long Term Health World Women’s Day”
Pregnancy can have both positive and negative impacts on a woman's long-term health, depending on various factors such as age, pre-existing health conditions, and lifestyle habits. It can increase the risk of developing certain chronic health conditions such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, especially in women who had gestational diabetes or preeclampsia during their pregnancy. On the other hand, pregnancy is known to have a protective effect against certain types of cancer such as ovarian and endometrial cancer, especially if a woman has had multiple pregnancies. It can have lasting effects on a woman's mental health, with some studies suggesting that women who experience postpartum depression may have an increased risk of depression and anxiety in the long-term.
Role of Anaesthesia in sustainable environment
Anesthesia plays a crucial role in reducing the carbon footprint of medical procedures by reducing the length of surgery and recovery time, leading to lower energy consumption and waste generation. The implementation of sustainable practices in anesthesia can also lead to cost savings for healthcare systems, further promoting environmental sustainability. By carefully monitoring and controlling the use of anesthetic drugs, waste and pollution can be reduced, while ensuring patient safety and comfort.
Endometriosis and Infertility.
The exact cause of endometriosis is unknown, but hormones, genetics, and immune system problems may play a role. Endometriosis can also lead to infertility by affecting the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissues surrounding the uterus.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) and other assisted reproductive technologies can also help women with endometriosis and infertility to conceive.
