Unconscious Pregnancy And Menstrual Smoothing Medicine?
Hello. I am 25 years old want to ask. This month I was late for my period, so I bought menstrual medicine. After taking menstrual medicine never dtg. Finally I just fad to buy a testpack, it turned out to be positive. After that I went to the obstetrician to make sure I was pregnant or not. After the ultrasound the doctor said I was pregnant for 3 months. What I doubted was: 1. 2 months back I was still menstruating (just late this month only). How could my pregnancy be 3 months? 2. I was able to take menstrual medicine, will my baby be okay? Please explain. Thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Estimated gestational age through ultrasonographic examination (USG) of obstetrics in the first trimester of pregnancy has the best accuracy when compared to ultrasound examination in the second or third trimester. This is because in that period, the fastest growth of embryos (embryos) and the least biological variation. Determination of gestational age in the first trimester is by measuring the average diameter of the gestational sac if the structure of the prey is not yet visible, or by measuring the length of the embryo if the structure is already visible. If you feel that the measurement of the age of your new pregnancy seems a bit dubious, you can repeat the USG obstetric examination within 2 weeks to compare the results and monitor the progress of your pregnancy.
Generally menstrual smoothing drugs work by stimulating the decay of the uterine wall so that it is feared the risk of causing miscarriage when consumed during pregnancy. However, if the doctor in charge of you has examined your womb and said that your prospective fetus is still growing and developing properly, of course these concerns can be eliminated.
Do not hesitate to consult with your obstetrician and gynecologist who treats you. At home, you are advised to eat a balanced nutritious meal, adequate rest, and drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
