Question:

In pregnancy up to which months one can drive two wheelers?

Answer:

Pregnancy Care Tips

This depends on your past history. Do you have a history of spontaneous abortions in the past? Has your physician advised any type of special care during the initial months of pregnancy? How long do you travel on the two wheeler? What is your age?

Ideally, during the initial months of pregnancy it is recommended that you take utmost care and avoid any type of strain to the uterus. This consideration is imperative, especially, if you have had spontaneous abortions in the past without any cause.

Also among older women, above the age of thirty years, it is important to avoid traveling on two wheelers, at least for the first three to four months of pregnancy and then during the later stage of pregnancy.

In the initial months the fetus embeds into the uterine cavity and is very fragile. In the later months of pregnancy, excessive movements and rough road rides can stimulate premature delivery, especially if the fetus is too large or too small in size. Women with multiple pregnancies should also take due care.

    I am 3 months pregnant. I was admitted in the hospital for 5 days and took IV medications. I had also undergone brain and chest x ray. After I got discharged, I took home medication for 3 days, but I stopped it already. Does it affect my baby? I never told the doctor that I was pregnant during the medication.

      You must always disclose your pregnancy when taking any medication as some medications are not advisable when you are pregnant. There could be alternate medicines that could be prescribed since you are carrying a baby. The only sensible thing to do would be to visit your Gynecologist and explain what happened. they gynecologist can then run through a thorough test and check ups to determine the health of your baby. There may be nothing wrong, but it is better to be safe than sorry!
