Hello Alifs, Thank you for the question.
Do you know the cause of your stomach ache? Buscopan is a trademark of medicine with hyoscine butylbromide which functions to relax the muscles in the digestive tract and urinary tract so that it can relieve stomach complaints due to gastrointestinal muscles or strained urinary tract. Complaints of abdominal pain during pregnancy itself can be caused by various conditions, not always caused by complaints in the digestive tract or urinary tract, so the treatment given by a doctor will vary. Furthermore, the drug is included in category C medicine for pregnant women. Category C drugs are drugs which, according to animal studies, cause adverse side effects in the fetus but there are no studies that have been contaminated with pregnant women; this drug can only be used in pregnant women if the benefits outweigh the risks to the fetus. Therefore, this drug cannot be used carelessly, including continuous use, without further doctor's advice.
Abdominal pain in pregnant women is a normal condition that occurs due to the following conditions:
