Question: 5 weeks pregnant….safe to take medications?
I am 26 year old and was 5 week pregnant. I have no medical history and prescribed with HCG injections once weekly for 3 weeks and progesterone tablets for 20 days before my blood test reports. As HCG is FDA pregnancy category X and not indicated in normal pregnancy. Is is safe to take these medications in early pregnancy. I have extreme fatigue and low back pain from past one week.
you should avoid taking any medicines, for that matter, during such early days of pregnancy.
only calcium,iron and vitamin tablets are safe.
but if your gynecologist has given you HCG / PROGESTERONE, then you need to confirm with him, the reason for starting these medicines and whether you can stop them.
