13 weeks pregnant, can I take canesten oral capsule ?

13 weeks pregnant, can I take canesten oral capsule ?

No.: Do not take Clotrimazole in pregnancy (class c - animal side-effects noted). I cannot think why anyone would prescribe Clotrimazole in pregnancy - seek a second opinion for your condition. If you are talking about oral fluconazole, it may be taken as a one time 150 mg dose with appropriate counseling (fetal risks exist). Prefer topical treatment for yeast vaginitis! ...Read more

I'm 13 weeks pregnant with a bad head cold. Are there any medicines that are safe for me to take?

Decongestant: Limited use of a decongestant like Sudafed is relatively safe. Tylenol (OTC: over the counter) can also be used fo residual headaches. If symptoms are more allergy related, use of Zyrtec or Claritin is also reasonable. ...Read more

Is there anything I can take to relieve TMJ pain and im also 13 weeks pregnant?

Is there anything I can take to relieve TMJ pain and im also 13 weeks pregnant?

Check with ob: Check with your OB if you can take alleve or advil. Antiinflammatory medicines help a lot. Also ice and a soft diet. Do not chew gum. Your dentist can make you a special night guard, i prefer the nti device rather than a full guard that covers all the top or bottom teeth. The nti is small and fits only in the front. When you wear it you can't clench or grind. ...Read more

13 weeks pregnant. I can't sleep through the night. Is it safe to take unisom?

Unisom: When using meds in pregnancy, we need to know the fda pregnancy category. Category a means there are studies or know history of pregnant women on the drug and no problems with the baby-but this category is rare as no one does studies on pregnant women, so the next best is studies in pregnant mammal animals, that show no problem (cat b), ..Unisom is safe to take. It is a category b. Discuss w gyn! ...Read more

13 weeks pregnant at 40 yrs old. 2 miscarriages  before at 10 weeks. What extra precautions should I take or of what problems do I need to be aware?

None : If you had ultrasound and saw a heartbeat - risk of loss is less than 2%. Also, you are almost in second trimester. Nothing to do . Some may use baby Aspirin and some may use Progesterone up to 14 weeks. Ask your doctor first before using any of these medications. ...Read more

I m 13 weeks pregnant .Height 5.1 weight 48 kg.How much calories should I take during my pragnancy.And sex is safe for me during pregnancy?

More than average: The average weight gain during pregnancy is 25 pounds. But of course, this is for women that start at an average weight. Your weight is low, but close to 'ideal' when based solely on your height. A 25-35 pound weight gain will be your goal. Unless your doctor has placed you on restriction or you have had recent vaginal bleeding/cramping/rupture of membranes, sex during pregnancy should be fine. ...Read more
