What Is The Total Anesthetic Effect On Pregnant Women 5 Weeks?
, what to do when a pregnant woman accidentally performs an operation that requires total anesthesia, the pregnancy is only known when the surgery is complete and the gestational age after the operation is 8 weeks.
Hello Dita, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In the first trimester of pregnancy, it is highly recommended not to carry out any operative procedure unless the action is necessary to save the life of the mother.
The effects of total anesthesia in first trimester pregnant women are also very diverse, depending on several factors such as the type of drug used, duration of anesthesia, maternal factors, fetal factors, and also several other factors that take place before surgery is performed.
Based on existing research to date, in fact there is no strong evidence that general anesthesia during the early trimester of pregnancy can cause disability in the fetus, but it is suspected that some drugs can cause it if used for a long time. Likewise with the risk of miscarriage, premature birth or low birth weight, this is still further investigated and is generally thought to be more related to the surgical technique performed when surgery is performed in the abdominal area.
Even though it's already done, it's still highly recommended that you try to maintain the pregnancy as much as possible, especially if it's when you go to the doctor about the pregnancy and your fetus is in good condition. For now, see your obstetrician to check the condition of your pregnancy and your fetus. Your obstetrician will help determine what actions or therapies are needed to optimize your pregnancy.
I hope this helps.
