Don't drink it again: Rue tea should not be drank by pregnant woman as it can cause uterine contractions, which can in turn cause a miscarriage. If you have not felt any adverse effects by now, than it is unlikely that one cup of rue tea has caused you or your baby and problems. Do not drink this tea again, however, if you plan on continuing your pregnancy.
