Use Of A Deodorant At 4 Weeks Pregnant?
Hello, I’m a 24th girl who is 4 weeks pregnant. I want to ask if pregnant women can use deodorants on the market like rexon *?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. When a woman is pregnant, there will indeed be more things that should be her concern. Various things that are normal outside the conditions of pregnancy, can be abnormal during pregnancy. For example, there are women who experience high blood pressure or high blood sugar levels only when she is pregnant. In addition, there are drugs that are relatively safe and even have been used by the woman for years before she became pregnant, for example, in women with a history of epilepsy, but the medicine must be changed when she is pregnant.
The same is true with cosmetics, or in your case, deodorants. There are various kinds of cosmetics that have ingredients that are not safe for the unborn baby, and have the potential to cause various abnormalities in the fetus, premature birth, and so on. The ingredients in question are:
So regarding your question, not only on the products you mention, in all products that have the ingredients above you should avoid them while you are pregnant. Although there are also expert opinions against this. These experts argue that while the ingredients are harmful, the substances that actually enter the body to later enter the bloodstream and affect the fetus are so little to say threatening. This is understandable because especially in the case of deodorants, we apply it to the folds of the armpit in a relatively small amount, and on the skin which tends to be thicker due to frequent friction and overgrown with fine hair. Therefore, not a few also believe in this opinion so that the opinion about whether or not the use of certain cosmetic ingredients is dangerous during pregnancy is still somewhat debated.
Our advice, to be safer, is avoided, but if you have trouble finding a deodorant that doesn't have any of the ingredients above, you should consult a dermatologist or a beauty clinic. Your doctor will help you select medications that may not be common on the market for you to take temporarily during pregnancy. So, hopefully it answers your question.
