Scenario dependent


If you are/have a high-risk pregnancy or have complications within your 3rd trimester, then if any elective treatment can be delayed it should. However, if you are contending with chronic pain & abscess/infection, then it is best to proceed with treatment, which is completely safe with local anesthesia - best to have oral surgeon perform and use lido (categ B preg drug) anesthetic- epinephrine OK

NO!


Do not use Afrin or any other nasal decongestant (claritin-D, allegra-D) throughout pregnancy, as it can cause unsafe spikes in your blood pressure, stroke, placental abruption, or even fetal loss! Plain oral antihistamines (not -D), nasal saline spray may be used instead, as may nasal steroids with medical supervision.

Yes you should!


Even in the third semester, medication can be risky. Stimulant medication does cross the placental barrier to the fetus and the best example of the risk is seen in so called "crack babies" who suffer withdrawal right after birth in mothers who continue to use crack while pregnant. You may not worry about your own withdrawal but should worry about the newborn's withdrawal. Do the right thing, stop
