Can Furagin during pregnancy
Pregnant women are interested in whether this drug can be used to treat infections of the genital tract. The answer is simple: you can not!
According to some reports, Furagin is relatively safe for pregnant women, but no specific scientific research has been carried out on this subject. After all, this medicine is used only in the countries of the former Soviet Union and some Eastern European countries. Unfortunately, we do not have money for research, which can have a negative result for the manufacturer. It's just not profitable. And the main reason for the lack of specific data on the influence of Furagin on pregnancy is the ban by international agreements on research and experiments with future mothers. Which of them will risk the health of the child?
Instructions for use Furagina informs that it can not be used during pregnancy.
Cystitis is a fairly frequent companion of pregnancy, but there are other drugs that recommend it to treat future mothers. To do this, you need to turn to your gynecologist and not to engage in self-medication.
Given that side effects of drug use are vomiting and nausea, it will be difficult to determine whether this is a side effect or toxicosis.
So, Furagin pregnant women should not be taken, because there are safe alternative drugs for the treatment of urinary tract infections. These drugs are effective in the period of gestation, but they should be prescribed only by a doctor, taking into account the individual characteristics of the course of pregnancy. He will also inform about the dosages.
Today, many pregnant women generally refuse to take medicines during the bearing of the child. They prefer long-proven and safe recipes for traditional medicine. This is the right of every future mother. But one should not ignore the recommendations of the attending physician, who, like you, is interested in the physiological course of pregnancy and the successful delivery of his patient.
