Heartburn During Pregnancy?
I want to ask, I’m pregnant right now, but I don’t want to tell my family, and now I’m sick, I want to be checked by a general practitioner, if I get pregnant. Please reply
Good evening, thanks for the question
Young pregnancy can be assessed through physical examination by touching the upper abdominal area of the genitals other than through an ultrasound examination. Noteworthy is that the patient needs to inform the doctor who is checking about the current condition and also other history that will affect further examination and treatment options going forward, including if you are pregnant. This is because there are classes of drugs and types of investigations that are dangerous for the development of the fetus in the early trimester of pregnancy, so it needs special attention for doctors to determine the recommended examination and medication to be given. Patients must be open about information related to illnesses and complaints to themselves to the doctor to minimize errors in handling the future. Therefore, before the doctor examines it is better to convey directly that also is pregnant.
That's all, hope you can help.
