The weather turns cold, and the temperature difference between morning and evening is relatively large. Some women may take cold medicine or antibiotics without knowing pregnancy. After diagnosis of pregnancy, they will be very worried.Essence

Is this really necessary?Don’t worry, after reading this pregnancy, then make a decision.Because there is still a safety limit for medication during pregnancy.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) divided the medication during pregnancy according to safety. This is currently recognized internationally recognized internationally internationally internationally recognized in terms of medication.

Class A drug is the safest category

It has been confirmed that taking it within the scope of the recommendation, there is no adverse effect on the fetus, it can be taken ourselves, such as the vitamin or composite vitamins commonly used during pregnancy.

Class B is also relatively safe

For example, we commonly used cephalosporin antibiotics, acetaminol for antipyretic fever, and drugs such as vagina during pregnancy.

Class C means that danger cannot be determined

There may be risks, and we need to carefully consider the advantages and disadvantages before taking the medicine, such as sulfa (new Nuo Ming, etc.), oltone drugs (fluoroginone, etc.).

Class D is confirmed to be harmful to the fetus

When necessary, it is rarely used during pregnancy, chaincin, tetracycline and chemotherapy drugs.

Class X is a significant harm to the fetus

For pregnant women, it is prohibited. For example, drugs such as isolate or virusol for the treatment of acne will increase the baby’s birth defects, including brain deformed, diaphragm, eye defects, congenital heart defects, and cleft palate.

Therefore, drugs other than Class A should consult the doctor’s professional opinions before taking the medicine.

It is worth reminding that although everyone often takes antibiotics and antipyretics, such as penicillin, amoxicillin, cephalosporin and other drugs, belongs to category B drugs.However, it is not recommended to take it by themselves. Expectant mothers can choose according to the doctor’s examination and diagnosis.

The alleviating fever mainly depends on drugs containing heat -relieving analgesic ingredients, such as non -steroidal anti -inflammatory drugs and acetaminol. Common aspirin and ibuprofen.

FDA does not recommend that the quasi -mothers who take such drugs within 3 months of pregnancy are taken for a long time, which may have a long -term impact on the baby.

Therefore, the cooling measures of expectant mothers are mainly based on physical cooling. If there is continuous high fever and above 38.5 ° C, you can take antipyretic drugs after weighing the advantages and disadvantages, because too high body temperature will also have a adverse effect on the baby.

If you take some drugs without knowing pregnancy, you can consult a professional obstetrician and gynecologist.Even if you take drugs above level B, don’t worry too much, because the impact of drugs on the fetus also has a "window period" and cannot be blindly implemented.

Finally, if you find that menstruation is delayed before medication, it is recommended to rule out the possibility of pregnancy before all treatment and examination, in case.
