The pulsatility and resistance indices (PI, RI), and peak systolic velocity of ovarian, follicular and uterine blood flow were automatically calculated, the size of dominant follicles and endometrial thickness were measured on day 13 of the cycle.
Uterine blood flow shows a characteristic pattern in cows with the highest time averaged maximum velocity values during proestrus and estrus and remains at a fairly constant during diestrus (Bollwein et al., 2016).
Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the effects of Cabergoline administration on uterine blood flow in women suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Also, enlargement of the uterus with dilatation of the pelvis arteries cause increased uterine blood flow. Burnett and Carfrae (2) have postulated that during the normal process of involution that occurs during the postpartum period, a segment or segments of the ovarian circulation may fail to involute, predisposing to aneurysm formation in subsequent pregnancy.
They concluded that thermal balloon endometrial ablation therapy induces a rise in uterine blood flow impedance, with maximal change recorded at 6 months posttherapy.
However, I have used this drug in a small group of women with poor uterine blood flow to improve their chances of pregnancy.
Mothers who utilize hypnosis during childbirth can increase uterine blood flow, increasing oxygen perfusion through the placenta improving outcomes for the baby.
In their study of 14 women, it was found that although uterine blood flow falls at supine rest, supine exercise causes an increase in uterine blood flow significantly above that of supine rest.
Fetal-growth restriction is another problem of pregnancy that's associated with limited uterine blood flow. The condition affects about 1 in 12 pregnancies and can produce complications at birth and long-term developmental disorders in a child.
Risks from the force of contractions induced by Pitocin include potentially greater reductions in uterine blood flow than occur with natural contractions, which can lead to a greater reduction in oxygen for the fetus and possible fetal distress.
