Why is it not safe to have general anaesthetic in early pregnancy?
6 people found this useful
The anesthetic affects the fetus as much as it affects the mother.If she is having it for a C-section, the lightest anestheticpossible is given prior to the birth of the baby and everyone isready to deliver the baby as quickly as possible. Once the baby isdelivered the anesthetic for the mother is d…eepened for theabdominal repair. If an anesthetic is required for any otheroperation, the baby will be affected as much as the mother, but asthe mother comes round the baby will also come round. (MORE)
I had a pregnancy test conducted at home and it was positive.Is it safe to travel by air during the early stages of pregnancy. I have not consulted a doctor yet.?
Answer . Yes, it is safe. Air travel becomes more risky towards the very end of pregnancy.
The very earliest a home pregnancy test can detect a pregnancy, is 6 DPO, or 6 days past ovulation. However, some babies will not implant until as late as 10-12 DPO, which in that case, a pregnancy test would not be able to detect a pregnancy until after the period is missed. For a pregnancy test to… be able to detect a pregnancy, the baby has to have implanted into the uterine wall, so that hCG can be produced. HCG can be detected in the blood before it can be detected in the urine, so if you really want to know if you are pregnant, you might want to get a blood test done by your OB. (MORE)
Answer . drink, smoke, do drugs . Answer . during early pregnancy it is not safe to stress or lift heavy objects. It is aslo unsafe to take any type of drugs and you must consult a doctor before taking any type of medicine.
Answer . There is no way to insure that you have twins. If you go in for in vitro fertilization then your chances of having multiple increases greatly but they most likely will not be identical. Just leave it up to nature and be happy with what you are given.. Good luck!

Is General Anaesthetic scary I'm having a general anaesthetic for the first time Petrified about being Put to Sleep what will it feel like. also terrified of needles?
General Anaesthetic can be scary to many people and being affraid before surgery is common. It is best best to talk with your doctor and other health care professionals about your fears. Also, researching your procedure and patient experiences with being "put under" might relieve some of your anxiet…y. If you are terrified of needles, let your nurse know before hand. Having a strong support system, such as family and friends can make this process much easier too. :) Everyone experiences "going under" differently, but from my experience it went really well. It felt like I was getting sleepy, but it didn't feel scary. The next thing I knew....I woke up and everything was fine:). You most likely will be given something to help you relax before your surgery and usually people say (MORE)
Is General Anaesthetic scary having a general anaesthetic for the first time Petrified about being Put to Sleep what will it feel like also terrified of needles?
Hi I have had 3 general anaesthetics before and I can honestly say that they were not scary or negative at all. The routine first starts with you having to wear a hospital gown (wear knickers or pants if you're a boy cos it will show your bum!) and getting onto an operating table in your hospi…tal room. Some numbing cream may be applied to the top of your hand if you are a child or if you ask for it. The anaesthesiologist will be there with you. Anaesthesiologists are specially trained doctors who only administer anaesthetics, so they are very advanced and know EXACTLY what they are doing. Once you are on the operating table, you will be taken down to the operating theatre. You will then be surrounded by your surgeon, the anaesthesieologist and other doctors. An IV will be attached to your hand but because you will be numbed, you will not feel a thing when the needle goes in. Next, you will be hooked up to the anaesthetic machine by the anaesthesiologist. They will then administer the anaesthetic slowly. You might feel a cold sensation in whichever arm it is administered in, but not usually, and if you do it is not uncomfortable, just odd feeling. Next, you should try counting back from 10 to 1. I bet you'll be asleep by the time you get to 6!! It is very pleasant, it just feels like you're entering a long awaited sleep - as if you are completely overtired and you just NEED to sleep. Your eyes will feel really really heavy. Next thing you know you'll be awake! It literally feels like you've blinked, not like you've slept for hours at all. You will wake up in the recovery room with your anaesthesiologist and a nurse to look after you for about 20 minutes. Try to refrain from talking, because whatever you DO say for a few minutes will just be rubbish, lol. First time I came around after an anaesthetic I asked where the plastic surgery part of the hospital was - I was 9 years old. You might feel a bit thirsty and if you are, ask for some water but sip it very very slowly - do not gulp it all down. You will probably feel groggy for an hour or so, and it is best to sleep this off. Within 6 hours you should be feeling back to normal, unless you had a particularly long operation. Hope it goes well! You have nothing to worry about! (MORE)
If I understand your question correctly, no you will not become pregnant by swallowing semen. If you mean is it safe to swallow semen while you are pregnant, then yes it is very good for you. Aside from all the regular health benefits it has the added advantage of greatly reducing the risk of… a very serious pregnancy complication called pre-eclampsia, where a woman's blood pressure becomes dangerously high. - http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/11/24/1069522535088.html The man must be healthy and not have any sexually transmitted disease. Since it becomes more difficult to have intercourse as your pregnancy progresses, oral sex and semen swallowing is a great way to maintain your semen intake and heighten the intimacy of your relationship. Best of luck to you and your family. (MORE)

There is too many to mention, you need to specify. But the golden rule is that if you need medicine you have to check with the doctor first. Some medicines also interact with each other.
In very small amounts it can be ok, but remember, whatever you consume, your fetus also consumes. And a cup of coffee to you is a LOT of caffeine to a tiny fetus. Go to this site for more information. It'll tell you all about it. http://www.americanpregnancy.org/pregnancyhealth/caffeine.html
The term 'anaesthetic' covers a wide range of difference drugs and substances designed to do different things. Anaesthetics may be classed as general or local. A general anaesthetic involves making a patient completely unconcious (anaesthesia) AND unaware of pain (analgesia). This state can be… achieved in a number of different ways, but often begins with a drug (such as propafol) being administered into the patient's veins called an INDUCTION AGENT. This has the benefit of acting very quickly, and if left at that, would generally last about 20 minutes in most adults. As most surgeries go on longer than 20 minutes, a MAINTENANCE AGENT will often be given throughout the operation, usually as volatile gas that the patient inhales with oxygen through a mask. Examples of commonly used volatile anaesthetic gases are sevoflurane and isoflurane. These have the benefit of being fairly short acting, so the patient remains asleep for as long as the gases are switched on. At the end of the operation, the gases can be turned off, and the patient should begin to wake up quite soon after. Muscle relaxants are given in some surgeries where the patient is needed to be completely still (some operations on bones and joints) or where natural muscle tone needs to be relinquished (such as in open abdominal surgery). Analgesia (pain relief) is usually given into the veins at the beginning of the operation and throughout. There are many, many different types and classes of analgesic drugs, but morphine and its family of drugs are common. These sorts of drugs (called opiates) are great at taking pain away but often make people feel sick, so invariably a special drug called an anti-emetic (such as ondansetron) is also given to combat this. General anaesthetics are very safe when done correctly and admistered by an experienced anaesthetist with appropriate patient monitoring. Local anaesthetics covers a wide range of different techniques where the patient is awake. These include: Topical anaesthetics - creams and gels rubbed onto the skin or gums to combat pain Regional anaesthesia - injections of anaesthetic around specific nerves in the body Specialised regional anaesthesia - special types of 'nerve blocks' such as epidurals or spinal anaesthetics, often used when women need pain relief when in childbirth, or for patients are particularly painful operations (e.g. removal of the colon) This is a very brief overview of anaesthetics - you could (and many have) write thousands of long books on the subject!

I've heard even cheap pregnancy tests give accurate results. If I were to take a pregnancy test to detect early pregnancy it would be one that it easy to use and read, such as clearblue digital or first response.
Sure you can take cranberry capsules in pregnancy. It's just like eating (a LOT of) cranberries, which is a natural food, and good for you too. The extra Vitamin C and antioxidants will benefit your health and also your baby's.
Ask your doctor because much depends on the dose. The DEA is currently Oxycodone related deaths in the US. It should not be taken without your doctor's knowledge and direction.

Yes it is safe. Most Dr's will routinely give a pap smear at the first prenatal appointment. With both of my pregnancies I had pap smears at 5 weeks.
Early stages? To avoid pregnancy you get on birthcontrol. Go to your ob-gyn and they will show you. If you are already pregnant only abortion by a doctor will be safe.
If you was to have an ectopic pregnancy, it would be from shortly after conception, ectopic pregnancy means the blastocyst has implanted outside the uterus (normally in the tubes), so when your due period has come normally a test would come up positive (as when it implants it still releases hcg), si…gns of an ectopic pregnancy are: bleeding/ spotting red blood/ or even just like a period, pregnancy test going fainter - instead of darker,pain in the left or right side near your ovaries. If you have any of these symptoms then I would seek medical advice asap, as an ectopic pregnancy is very serious, and if not treated/removed/terminated, then it could result in not being able to have children, internal bleeding etc. (MORE)
In the early stage of pregnancy is it normal to have cramping without bleeding just white discharge and is it safe to have sex when this happens?
yes that's normal and yes it is safe. you can have sex pup until the 8th month. (based on my experience).
You certainly can go on to have a healthy pregnancy or pregnancies after having an ectopic pregnancy. If you had your tube removed, and still have one working tube and ovary, your chances of getting pregnant each month are simply half that of a woman with 2 functioning ovaries and tubes. This is bec…ause your ovary will most likely only release an egg every other month, as it always has. (MORE)
Yes, you have three options. General anaesthetic, conscious sedation or no-sedation at all. I'd recommend General Anaesthetic.
The doctor who wishes to give you the general anesthesia will be the best judge of that, though a second opinion may be sought, of course.
Generally yes, if used and monitored properly. However, there are always exceptions and people react differently. Only a doctor of anesthesiology should handle it.
Usually the reason for undressing has less to do with the anesthesia and more to do with maintaining sterility in the operating room (where most anesthesia takes place) Street clothes have germs, OR staff can't wear them in and neither can the patients, sterility is your friend. Also, while undergoi…ng anesthesia, cardiac monitors need to be applied to the chest. The head, neck and arms all must be bare and accessible for monitors intubation and respiratory support and IV's. In certain surgeries or for extended surgery a foley catheter may be inserted to drain the bladder. (MORE)
If you are a male, use a condom. A female, Use a femidom. Or you can take pills to stop the pregnancy.
Yes it is. You can have sex through the entire pregnancy so waxing is nothing.
In an article written for young people to answer a question regarding the use of Emergency Contraception, The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said: When should you use EC? If you have had intercourse without using any protection, if the protection was unreliable or if the bir…th control method was not used correctly . Not using protection correctly includes using the withdrawal method, which does not work.

Yes it is. Milk is good for you but take it easy with the sugar.
Thank you for your important question. As a physician , I dont recommend using AUGMENTIN 1 G during pregnancy. Augmentin contains AMOXICILLIN and CLAVULANIC ACID.
Yes as long as you and your partner are healthy. If you are menstrating during pregnantcy go see a doctor. If you feel pains go see a doctor and make sure you and the baby are safe and healthy and don't be to young to have babies or it could cause serious health problems Hope this helped :)
Yes. Sublingual glutathione is glutathione (GSH) administered under the tongue so that the glutathione can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. There is some evidence showing that this may be more effective than taking oral GSH. Oral GSH is destroyed in the gut and is not effective in raisi…ng GSH. Glutathione is a protective protein that has only positive effects in the body, so is sublingual glutathione safe for pregnant mothers and for their unborn baby?

Any tea that has no laxitive or herbal tea is safe for pregnancy. Also, its best to avoid caffine. For Morning Sickness and any sort of sore throat/cold decaf lemon tea with some honey squirted in really helps!
Cramps can begin as soon as implantation occurs and can go on later in the pregnancy as well. It is completely normal unless heavy bleeding occurs as a result.
It probably won't hurt you if you have already done it but if you want to take extra safety precautions, it is advised not to eat lunchmeat and hotdogs (amongst many other foods) during pregnancy.
