Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I am eight months pregnant and have a bad cough. Can you please suggest some remedies that are safe during pregnancy?
Bindu (Rome, Italy)

A: You can take cough lozenges and gargle with hot water and salt 2-3 times a day. If the cough does not subside you will have to take antibiotics under medial advice.

Q: I am 26 weeks of pregnant. I have a cold and cough. I have heard that one should not cough when pregnant? Is it true?
Naina (Vadodara, India)

A: Coughing can bring pressure on your stomach. So take medications to stop the cough and expectorant to expel the phlegm.

Q: I am 21 weeks pregnant. I have a cough and a sore throat, and every time I cough, my baby gets a jerk and my stomach hurts. I have tried all home remedies to avoid taking antibiotics. What should I do?
Sweetie (Seattle, USA)

A: You should take antibiotics and anti-histaminics to avoid coughing, as frequent coughing can cause the baby’s water bag to burst, causing premature labour pains.

Q: I am 25 weeks pregnant and have a cold. Do I need to start antibiotics? I have a slightly sore throat and a mild cough. I am taking panadol, regular inhalations and Vitamin C.
Laveena (Houston, USA)

A: This should be more than sufficient, unless there is high fever along with the cold. Then antibiotics may be required.
