The Effect Of Taking Drug Stalls During Young Pregnancy?
Good night. I want to ask when I didn’t find out that I was pregnant, I took the medicine at the shop I thought it just caught a cold, but after that it didn’t heal. Then I thought maybe I was pregnant so I decided to take a peck test. The result was positive and I immediately went to the midwife. It seems that I have been pregnant for 6 weeks. What I want to ask does it affect or not when I take the over-the-counter medicine on my fetus? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It needs to be clarified, what over-the-counter drugs did you take before? What are the ingredients in the drug? What symptoms did you experience that finally decided to take the drug?
Taking drugs during pregnancy must be done with extra caution. Because, little or much of the components of the drug you consume can flow to the fetus in your womb. Most types of drugs can have a negative impact on the development of the fetus in the womb. The types of effects, of course, can vary greatly depending on the type of drug you are taking, how much dose you take, and also how old you are at the time of taking the drug. Often times, taking the wrong drug can cause you to have a miscarriage, your fetus is born with defects, or various other side effects.
Unfortunately, you do not explain in detail what medicine you are actually taking. Therefore, it is very difficult for us to predict the possible impact that could occur, both on you and the fetus in your womb, as a result of taking this drug in the first trimester of your pregnancy.
Our advice, before worrying too much, you should make sure first, whether you really are pregnant. Because, without wanting to downplay your hopes, a positive testpack result cannot be guaranteed if you have never undergone an ultrasound examination. Therefore, you should first check with a gynecologist so you can confirm your pregnancy. Bring along the over-the-counter medicine that you took before and show it to your doctor so that you can find out what the composition of the drug is as well as the possibility of having a negative impact on your pregnancy.
Next time, if you have complaints during pregnancy, you should not rush into taking the drug. Deal with your complaints first with natural treatments, such as rest, adjusting your diet, drinking lots of water, and so on. If the complaint does not improve or feels very disturbing to you, consult a doctor or obstetrician directly so that the best treatment method is chosen and does not risk endangering your pregnancy.
I hope this helps.
