Could Zika affect infants? It is already known third trimester pregnancy infections could be devastating even without microcephaly
Remains to be seen: I would expect significant problems with zika for anyone having it in childhood with less impairment as they age. It attacks the fragile growing nerves in the brain which develop most rapidly in early pregnancy but continue to grow/connect as kids age. Most rapid growth slows after two, but continues into young adulthood. The small head issue is a reflection of the early damage ...Read more

Is sigmoidoscopy safe during pregnancy? I’m in my third trimester and my doctor wants to do a sigmoidoscopy to find out why i’m bleeding. Can it hurt my baby?
Flexible sigmoidoscopy and even colonoscopy appears to be safe during pregnancy if it is indicated. A study published in 1996 looked at the safety and effectiveness of 48 flexible sigmoidoscopies during pregnancy done at 10 medical centers and showed that sigmoidoscopy does not induce labor or result in congenital malformations, that sigmoidoscopy is not contraindicated during pregnancy, and that sigmoidoscopy may be beneficial in pregnant patients with significant lower gastrointestinal bleeding.
The study included thirteen patients who were in the first trimester of pregnancy, 18 who were in the second trimester, and 15 who were in the third trimester. Twenty-seven patients were found to have significant diagnoses that included colitis and bleeding internal hemorrhoids. No complications occurred in the pregnant patients. Eight colonoscopies were also performed in pregnant patients during this study with no complications to the mother or unborn baby.
You should discuss your particular situation with your doctor before deciding whether or not to have a flexible sigmoidoscopy while you are pregnant.

Is afrin safe to use for severe nasal congestion during third trimester of pregnancy? I am currently 33 weeks and a few days and need sleep! Thank you
If your BP is NML:
Afrin (oxymetazoline) contains a vasoconstrictor, which is to say that it constricts blood vessels. In women predisposed to this, especially in late pregnancy, it may cause a rise in your bp, that could make your doctor suspicious of developing preeclampsia.
In small amounts it should be safe, but I would suggest you try antihistamines (they sometimes help), and avoid the decongestants for the above reason. ...Read more
