Can Cough Medicines And Vitamins Interfere With The Pregnancy Program?

Good morning,

1 Answer:

Hello Meisari, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

The cough medicine you mentioned contains glycyrrhizae succus, ammonium chloride, ephedrine, paracetamol, and chlorpheniramine maleate. Theoretically, substances such as Ephedrine have the potential to make the vaginal and cervical environment drier, making it harder for sperm to swim into the uterus and fallopian tubes to fertilize an egg. Antihistamines such as chlorpheniramine maleate theoretically can inhibit the release of eggs from the ovaries (ovulation). Meanwhile, other ingredients are not known with certain effects on fertility and pregnancy program. Although in theory, substances such as ephedrine and chlorpheniramine maleate can interfere with pregnancy programs, this has not been definitively proven through research and clinical trials. Therefore, you can use it when you are undergoing a pregnancy program if the benefits obtained from using the drug exceed the possibility of side effects (the symptoms you experience are very severe and very disturbing).


Just like the ingredients in the Nellco drug, there have been no studies and clinical trials that have shown any effect that the ingredients in Imboost can affect fertility and pregnancy programs.


To make sure that these medicines don't affect your program, you can try more natural ways to treat coughs and colds. The following are some of them:

Get more sleep and rest
Increase the consumption of fluids such as water, juices, soup or broth to maintain body hydration. Consuming more fluids can also help thin the phlegm in the throat.
Eat adequate amounts of nutritious food
Gargle with warm salt water to relieve sore throat
Natural ingredients such as ginger and honey to help reduce sore throats and relieve coughs
Use a humidifier at home, especially in your room
Take a warm bath and inhale warm steam in the shower to help reduce nasal congestion
Perform nasal irrigation with physiological saline to treat nasal congestion


So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
