10 things you should NEVER do during pregnancy

10 things you should NEVER do during pregnancy

Fatigue, physical exertion, stress and strong emotions, as well as temperature fluctuations do not do you any good when you are pregnant. Equally, unhealthy eating, coffee, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs and certain substances in the composition of cosmetic products can harm the baby's development in the womb.

Here's what you NEVER have to do when you are pregnant:

Don't make your gel manicure

Who doesn't want a perfect, long-lasting manicure? The problem is that nail gels contain substances that are potentially toxic to the fetus, which do not remain in the nail, and are absorbed through the skin. Among the most dangerous ingredients found in nail gels are dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene and formaldehyde. In addition, exposure to the UV lamp to fix the gel on the nails is also harmful. Ultraviolet causes hyperpigmentation of the skin, favors the appearance of wrinkles and can even cause skin cancer in the hands.

Verdict: Better not

Avoid adventures in the amusement park

It is true that the fetus is protected by amniotic fluid during the rollercoaster ride, but the placenta may detach due to sudden train movements. The effect is similar to that caused by a car accident. If you decide to take a tour through the amusement park, avoid the queue, at the cash registers or at the kiosks with cotton wool or souvenirs. The standing state increases the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis.

Verdict: Better not

Don't whiten your teeth!

Professional teeth whitening treatments should be avoided during pregnancy. It is known that the chemical substances resulting from the procedure have the potential to erode cellular tissues. If you swallow them accidentally, it is not known what the effects may have on the developing fetus in the womb.

Verdict: Better not

Do not take sleeping pills!

Do not take any sleeping pills. Even the natural ones, based on melatonin, are to be avoided. And this is because there are not enough studies to certify their use during pregnancy.

Verdict: Better not

Avoid solarium or prolonged exposure to the sun

There are not enough studies or experiments to reveal the effects of solarium or the use of self-tanning lotions in pregnancy. Therefore, give up artificial tanning during pregnancy. Instead, you can take sun baths in the early morning or late afternoon, and use sunscreen, except for products that contain oxybenzoate.

Verdict: Better not

Dermal fillers

Avoid botox injections and facelifts during pregnancy. None of these treatments has been tested in pregnant women. Therefore, they have not been approved for use during pregnancy.

Verdict: Better not

Marijuana

Marijuana is increasingly being used, with several countries declaring this drug legal. Despite the fact that it does not cause addiction, "grass", like any other drug, can lead to miscarriage, birth defects and premature birth.

Verdict: Better not

Don't get a tattoo!

Whenever you inject something into your skin, you risk contracting an infection. The most common diseases acquired in this way are HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C. On the other hand, there are few studies regarding the effects of pigments used in tattoos on fetal development.

Verdict: Better not

Don't get pierced!

Wearing a piercing when your skin expands is not a good idea at all. Specialists say there is a higher risk of infection if a piercing hole widens. In addition, it would not heal properly. It is extremely unpleasant to have a piercing in the belly that comes out, as the belly grows larger and clings to your clothes.

Verdict: Better not

Avoid electronic cigarettes!

Electronic cigarettes, like ordinary ones, contain nicotine, a substance known to cause birth defects. In addition, there is the risk of low birth weight, preterm birth, respiratory problems, miscarriage and sudden death syndrome.

Verdict: Of course not
