Name: Laxmi
Dear Archie
I have completed my 24 weeks of second pregnecy. Till now the progress,movements and ultrasound are all normal.Glucose test conducted and are normal.
Recently i was having lots of cough and consulted doctor. After initial cough treatments of Koftet,Steaming etc,She prescribed antibiotic (Augmentin 625+Neutrolin B plus) and cough syrup for 5 days. After the same had some vaginal itching and applied Gynoterazol cream with consultation of doctor.

Please let me know whether these treatments, antobiotic will have any side effect on baby/foetus? Please reply at the earliest.

Thanks

Dear Laxmi,

i hope youve taken these medicines after consulting your gyneac. If so, they would se safe and not have any effect on the baby . However, usually its better to avoid antibiotics during pregnancy for their side effects and soporific content . Try home remedies for your cough and other discomforts for an anxiety free recovery; my doctor barred me from all medication and asked me to take ginger , basil tea , hot water+salt gargling 5-6 times a day and external vaporisers .

As regards the vaginal itching and the anti bact/fungal cream , since its been suggested by your doctor , i dont see any issue . Drink lots of fluids and plenty of water to keep continuous drain of toxins . take care :)

RE:treatment for NK cells
According to what i know NK cells are a sign of 1st stage cancer and its treatment will definitely affect the baby and might cause permanent damage so i think abortion will be the best idea as waiting can be risky.... - Ritu [View Message]

Ayurvedic medicines are made up of different herbs and are considered safe but that does not mean that they have no effect on the baby's health. always consult your gynac before taking any medicine to be on the safer side.... - Rhea [View Message]
RE:Ayrurveda
According to what i know about ayurveda, all the medicines made are purely from herbs and plants so i think that is safe for getting a relief from pain but i think you should still get an approval from your gynecologist on this.... - Ashna [View Message]
RE:Pain killers
It would be safer for you to ask a doctor about this and then also confirm it with you gynecologist. Do not take any medication without asking your gynac as you never know what might affect your or your baby's health.... - Nikita [View Message]

RE:Crocin in pregnancy
Crocin is safe but i think you should avoid any kind of medication as far as possible as even if it is mild it contains chemicals after all. Rely on natural methods to bring your fever down and ask your doctor about it.... - Piya [View Message]
RE:Herbal medicines in pregnancy
It is always preferable to cure cough and cold by natural methods like steam and other ways. Medications must always be avoided when you are pregnant as it has some effects on the growing baby. Instead of medicines take steam and drink luke warm water.... - Niti [View Message]
