Drugs That Can Be Consumed By Pregnant Women 11 Weeks?
Hello, I am pregnant with my second child, currently my pregnancy is 11 weeks, I check routinely to the doctor at the hospital once a month in the middle of the month, also to the midwife at the clinic near my house once a month at the end of the month, last mid month I was given 3 kinds of drugs by Dr. spOG namely 1.preabor tablet 2.calcetrat tablet 3.folavit 400mcg tablet. And yesterday I just checked with the midwife and brought medicine from the hospital, said the midwife there are 2 drugs that should not be taken for now, namely 1.preabor tablet 2.calcetrat tablet. The reason for the preabor drug is to strengthen the womb, whereas I haven’t affected it or anything, if the calcetrat drug is not suitable to take for now because this drug is for calcium, said the midwife do not take it for now for fear of growing teeth too fast, drink it on during the second trimester, like that. The question is really whether the two drugs should not be taken for now? I am confused. The reason I checked the contents of the 2 experts was because if I really had to give birth in the hospital, I already had a doctor who did know my condition when I was pregnant, so also with a midwife, if indeed I gave birth at my clinic, I also had a midwife who did know my condition, because my first child also gave birth to the normal clinic. Thank you for your answer
Hello Fitriani, thank you for the question.
Basically, giving drugs or supplements must be based on indications. Therefore, if someone wants to stop their consumption, they must consult with those who provide the drugs and supplements. Preabor is a type of drug that has a synthetic progesterone hormone composition. The hormone progesterone is a hormone that functions to maintain pregnancy. This hormone causes tissue thickening and increase in endometrial blood vessels in the uterus. This endometrium is the attachment site of the embryo which will later develop into a fetus. Giving synthetic hormones is certainly based on indications. Indications can be in the form of current conditions or past medical history. That is, even if your pregnancy is not problematic at this time, for example there is a history of previous reproductive problems, the doctor can give drugs containing synthetic hormones. Provision of these drugs to prevent problems in pregnancy, based on previous history. Of course we do not know your current condition and your past history. You should discuss this with your doctor.
Regarding the provision of calcium, it is certainly not a problem if it starts early. There is no scientific evidence that earlier administration of calcium will cause fetal tooth growth earlier. It is very rare for a fetus to be born with teeth that have already grown, although this may be found. Even if tooth growth occurs earlier, it does not affect the function and health of the fetus's teeth and mouth. The most important thing when consuming calcium is to consume according to the dosage and drink water at least 2 L per day.
The best thing right now is, first consult with your doctor. Ask in detail the indications for drug administration. Also ask if it's okay if some of the medicine isn't taken. Avoid stopping the consumption of drugs or supplements without the knowledge of the doctor.
That's the explanation that I can give. Hope you are helped. Regards.
