I am 22wks pregnant and inhaled some chemicals including ddt that was sprayed at my work place two days ago. Will it affect my baby?

A single, brief: Exposure is unlikely to harm your fetus at 22 weeks. Significant exposure would have made you feel ill. However, you may want to check osha regulations & very politely & tactfully, share them with your employer or hr department to prevent recurrent exposure. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Took shower after it had been sprayed down with bleach. Smelled strong. 30 weeks pregnant. Harmful to baby?

Took shower after it had been sprayed down with bleach. Smelled strong. 30 weeks pregnant. Harmful to baby?

Not harmful: The amount of chlorine your would have breathed in, then get through your lungs, your system and to baby would be so tiny that it poses no risk to the baby. Quite honestly, I'm glad they sprayed it down - much more likely you would catch a germ had it not been well cleaned that could cause harm to your baby than anything the dilute bleach solution/fumes would do to you! ...Read more

My wife is 10 week pregnant and today I sprayed perfume and some perfume went inside her mouth. Is there any problem?

No: Perfume is made with aromatic oils and extracts of flowers, plants and spices, some alcohol is added to dry the liquid on the skin. There is nothing to worry about. Ripe fruit is allowed in pregnancy, for example, as there are minute amounts of alcohols in food too. ...Read more

I am 11 weeks pregnant. I've seen my baby's heartbeat. I have to be sprayed with oleoresin capsicum for my job tomorrow. Will this affect my baby?

Get a note: I am not aware of pepper spray causing any problems for a pregnant woman. That being said this just seems like a bad idea and not a nice thing to do to a pregnant woman and her first trimester. Get a note from your doctor excusing you from this until after the pregnancy is complete. I would imagine your employer would agree. ...Read more

19 weeks pregnant. I saw a bug on the couch, maybe first bed bug. Freaked out and sprayed the couch with rubbing alcohol. Strong smell, is it safe?

Chemicals/pregnant: Air out the room or go into another room, a single episode for a short period should not be an issue. For the future get some N-99 particle masks at home depot and ventilate to room (open window, fan) or have someone else do this if occurs regularly (hopefully it will not happen again-). Don't worry. ...Read more

Sprayed showerhead in vagina to clean off soap, scared of embolism. How likely is it to happen and when would it happen? Also 27 weeks pregnant

Sprayed showerhead in vagina to clean off soap, scared of embolism. How likely is it to happen and when would it happen? Also 27 weeks pregnant

Shower spray/vagina: This is unlikely to cause an embolism. Embolic disease in pregnancy is more frequent at the time of delivery, and is very rare. Shower irrigation of the vaginal area is common in Europe, and a "bidet" is an appliance seen in most European bathrooms, which essentially does the same as your showerhead, and is very safe. ...Read more

Why is it prohibited to use ducray anacaps for a pregnant women? And what are the effects for a pregnant women if she uses it?

Lots of unknowns: Ducray anacaps are a "supplement" and are not medications approved by the fda. They are most likely not tested for interactions and side effects like real medicines are. So, that means nobody really knows what side effects there are. If an anacaps user hears of some interaction or thinks she is getting a side effect, she can visit her primary care doctor. ...Read more
