At the beginning of pregnancy, the doctor may prescribe the intake of vitamins and other medications required according to the indications. In any case, the specialist always takes into account the possible risk to the fetus.
Having learned about the onset of pregnancy, many women begin to rush to extremes: some run to the pharmacy and buy all the "useful" drugs and medicines, while others, on the contrary, refuse to take even the most harmless vitamins. What pills should you take at the beginning of pregnancy?
If you have a good enough and varied diet, then it makes no sense for you to buy special vitamins for pregnant women, it is advisable to take them in the second and third trimesters. At the beginning of pregnancy, you can only drink vitamin E and folic acid. Vitamin E is prescribed for the prevention of spontaneous abortion and for the proper development of the child. Its second name "Tocopherol" is translated as "bearing offspring." It takes part in the synthesis of most of the hormones in your body.
Folic acid is responsible for the mental and physical development of the baby. The lack of this vitamin affects the well-being of a woman and her ability to carry. It has been proven that those women who took folic acid at the beginning of pregnancy were less likely to suffer from diseases of the cardiovascular system, depression, intoxication and intestinal disorders. If you want to boost your immunity during viral infections, keep your hair and nails healthy, drink folic acid.
In addition, your doctor may prescribe Magne B6 for you. Magnesium is involved in many biochemical reactions of the body, is responsible for the transfer of genetic information, and most importantly, it reduces the muscle tone of the uterus, skeletal muscles and other internal organs. Magnesium is known for its properties to relieve stress and reduce the hyperexcitability of the nervous system. Therefore, you can safely take these pills at the beginning of pregnancy.
In the first trimester, your need for iodine increases significantly, and it can be more than replenished with the help of the drug "Iodomarin". Iodine is involved in the formation of thyroid hormones, which directly affect the proper development of the child's brain. A deficiency of this element in an early period can provoke a miscarriage, an equally terrible consequence of a lack of iodine is the development of cretinism in the baby. Therefore, you should not refuse to take these pills at an early date.
If you are threatened with spontaneous abortion due to a lack of the hormone progesterone, your doctor may prescribe you to take Dufaston or Utrozhestan tablets. These drugs contain an analogue of the natural hormone progesterone and are completely safe for the mother and fetus. In the future, the doctor may prescribe you to take other drugs and vitamins, depending on the state of your health and the health of your baby. In any case, experts always take into account the possible risk to the fetus when prescribing this or that drug, so you should not be afraid, it is better to completely rely on the opinion of the doctor, so that later you will not regret your own inaction.
