Can Paracetamol Prevent Pregnancy?
, my partner took 3/4 Paracetamol because of dizziness, is it okay for the stomach and does it prevent pregnancy? Or miscarriage
Hello Riski, thank you for asking.
There are a number of things that need to be clarified, namely:
1. What do you mean by your partner taking three quarters of the tablet or taking 3 to 4 tablets?
2. When taking 3-4 tablets, do you drink it once or in a day?
3. Is your partner pregnant?
Paracetamol has analgesic (pain relief) and fever-lowering effects. Paracetamol is a drug that is safe and rarely causes side effects, as long as it is taken according to the recommended dosage. In adults, paracetamol can be taken every 6-8 hours, or in certain cases, it can be taken every 4 hours. One drink, can be 1-2 tablets or 500-1000 mg. The maximum daily dose is 4000 mg. This means that a maximum of one day a person may only consume 4 times 2 tablets of paracetamol.
Paracetamol does not prevent pregnancy because it is not contraceptive. Paracetamol also does not complicate pregnancy. So far there is no evidence that paracetamol causes miscarriage, as long as it is not consumed beyond the dose. Possible side effects include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, or allergic reactions.
Please consult with your doctor if the complaint does not go away. Doctors need to do a direct examination to determine the right diagnosis.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
