Warm baths.: Warm baths with epsom salt and pregnancy massage work wonders for body aches. If you received chiropractic before conceiving, make sure the practitioner is trained to work on pregnant women before you continue treatment. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is safe for minor pain in pregnancy.

If I had a body scan today, when can I restart taking my hormone medicine?

Depends on hormones : I think that would depend on the type of hormone you are talking about and the scan you had. If you didnt get instructions then check with your doctor first. Did you have a thyroid scan? Was it a bone scan or a density scan?
