Pregnancy and analgesics

Question:

- It is possible that I was pregnant and the current pulled me and I had ear, neck, neck pain. So I took in 4 days: 1 algocalmin, 1 paduden 200mg, 3 nurofen soft capsules 200mg, 2 pharyngoseptus and strepsils intensively about 3. I had menstruation on March 4, the cycle is irregular from 26-29 days, contacts not protected on 15 March (but I did 10 days after this contact a test and it came out negative), March 21, etc. I took the pills between March 19-22. I would like to know if these pills can in any way affect the possible pregnancy and if the result of the pregnancy test within 10 days of contact is sure?

Answer:


Algocalmin is a powerful analgesic product with antipyretic value (against fever), being used even during pregnancy.
Paduden and Nurofen are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs based on ibuprofen, a compound whose administration is not recommended in pregnancy; However, in the situation where you have administered these products, this fact is not an indication for interrupting the evolution of pregnancy.
Pharyngosept and Strepsils have no contraindications for pregnancy administration. So the medication given is not a cause for concern; however - still - for the good progress of the pregnancy and for having a healthy baby, I recommend you to carry out monthly periodic checks with the obstetrician doctor, in order to be able to detect in advance any changes in your or your baby's health; it is also necessary to inform the obstetrician about possible clinical manifestations that will occur in the next period.
To confirm the pregnancy diagnosis I recommend a specialized consultation (pregnancy test is positive 10-14 days after the sexual contact considered fecund) which may include besides the clinical examination and an ultrasound evaluation (the ultrasound pregnancy can be viewed after 4- 5 weeks of evolution).
