If a female tennis athlete just learn she is pregnant. When does she has to stop training druing pregnancy?  Is it during the 2nd trimester?

Around 20 weeks: There is no one right answer to this question. A general approach for an athlete who has been training vigorously (including high-intensity workouts) is to continue training as able through the first half of pregnancy, and during the second half of pregnancy to scale things back to a "maintenance" mode. All of this depends also on the individual mother, number of fetuses, and pregnancy course. ...Read more

Is it safe for a physically active woman to do a strenuous mountain hike to an altitude of about 3500m during the first trimester of pregnancy?

Is it safe for a physically active woman to do a strenuous mountain hike to an altitude of about 3500m during the first trimester of pregnancy?

Not safe: The air at 3500 meters (over 10, 000 ft) above sea level is significantly thinner and has less oxygen in it than you are used to. It is not a good idea to expose your developing baby to reduced oxygen (hypoxia), and the hazard would be greatest in the first trimester. This is especially true if you have a heart or lung problem (asthma). Mountain sickness at altitude is another hazard to your baby. ...Read more

I am around 4-5 weeks pregnant,I had a miscarriage at 4 weeks during my first pregnancy. So, my gynaecologist has aaked me take vageston 200mg twice a day for a month but I read online that is a class D drug during pregnancy. is it safe to take this medic

Yes, safe.: Vageston is a semi-synthetic hormone that--in theory--supports pregnancy in the early weeks prior to the full development of the placenta which then takes over the job of producing natural progesterone. It's perfectly safe but not always effective.There are many other factors that can cause early pregnancy loss that have nothing to do with insufficient progesterone. Best wishes to you! ...Read more
