Q: I have just found out that I am pregnant and worry that the asthma medicine will do harm to the fetus. Should I stop taking the medicines?

A: Completely no. Most asthma medicine is not only safe to take during pregnancy but it may cause some shocks, doing harm to you and your baby. “Serious asthma or weakly-controlled will stand more chance of causing some complications, including reducing the development in your womb and early delivery, as well as reduce your blood oxygen”, according to Andrew Satin – vice-director of Ob-Gyn in Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore. “In fact, stopping treatment is the number 1 reason leading to increase in asthma attacks during pregnancy”. Even some research shows that shocks during early stage of pregnancy can increase the possibility of some disabilities for the fetus. 

Satin added that this chronic disease will be more serious by 4 – 8% during gestation. Ideally, a woman who has asthma should meet the doctor before pregnancy to ensure that the disease is controlled well. If that is impossible, Satin said that: “Woman having asthma should be diagnosed by obstetricians at early stage of pregnancy. Once the doctor can determine how serious it is or how well it is controlled, treatment will be divided into 2 types: emergency medicine and controlling medicine. The emergency medicine is for acute explosion, and the controlling medicine is for preventing unconscious situations.

Besides taking suitable medicine, which is usually effective, Satin said that identifying and eliminating the reasons that caused asthma would reduce the recurrence. “Allergens, furs, molds, and cigarette smoke are popular stimulants. If you expose to them less, the disease won’t get worse”.

Will I get UTI more?

Q: My vesica has been infected many times during the past few years. And now I am pregnant, and will I get it more?

A: The pregnancy itself doesn’t make you get the Urinary tract infection (UTI) but your anamnesis does. 20% of women will get it again, of which 30% will catch it at least once. “Women who catch UTI easily usually have it during pregnancy” - according to Angelica Zaid, an OB-GYN doctor at Women’s Integrative Health in Encinitas, California.

Because UTI increases the possibilities of early delivery and kidney infection, doctors usually test their urine in every examination before they give birth. There is another reason for this test plan: “Symptoms when a woman is pregnant are usually silent”, explained Zaid, “Urinating frequency is a part of pregnancy, so women usually don’t pay attention to it”.  

Zaid said that some women were lucky to get rid of UTI thanks to taking some pills extracted from cranberries. Urinating after an intercourse to get rid of new bacteria is a good idea as well.
