I feel awful today crampy tummy and running to the loo. I am not sure what medication is safe to take as my AF has not shown up (now considering myself 1 day late) and there is a v slight possibility i could be pregnant. I have a heavy head and was gonna take paracetamol - does anyone think that would be ok.
Made a major mistake on Tues and took 2 sea sickness tablets to help me overcome my sealegs after my hols and only afterward read the box and it said to consult a doctor if preg and breastfeeding. It also said taking the tablets would effect the results of a preg test!!!!
I did a cheapie internet hpt this morning - 25mLU (how senstive is that?) and got a BFN.
Have no idea what to think, feel my AF is all out of sorts due to my holiday and travelling and am prob not preg but should I go ahead and take medication to settle my tummy and head any way. Don't know what to do just wanna feel better.
The sea sickness tablets I took were Avomine 25mg Promethazine Teoclate - if that means anything to you Holly21. It says in the leaflet in the box (which I didnot read until I had taken 2!!!)
If you are having a preg test (or test for skin allergy) do no take this product as it interferes with the results. If you are preg, think you may be preg or are breastfeeding your baby you should not take Avomine tablets unless recommended for you by a doctor. If you are breastfeeding Avomine tablets may cause your baby to be irritable and excited
Prob not preg anyway, was silly not to read the leaflet first. Still feeling all at sea all the tablets did were make me sleepy and I didn't take any more after reading the leaflet. Not much I can do but wait and see if AF turns up and test again with cheapy hpt in the morning.
Don't worry, promethazine is one of the few anti sickness drugs that is safe to use in pregnancy so if you are PG, you have nothing to worry about. Like NickyT75 says, avoid non-steroidal anti imflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and aspirin as they can cause cardiac defects in utero plus other problems. If you need something stronger than paracetamol, then low dose codeine (you can buy this over the counter) is safe in early pregnancy too. Out of interest, acupuncture is also safe in pregnancy and most acupuncturists will needle anywhere except over the uterus - really good for morning sickness too (as is ginger). So no need to stress and hope you get your soon
