I am in the 13th week of my first pregnancy. I had two episodes of postcoital bleeding after which USG was done and showed low lying placenta (lower placenta is covering the os). I had been on bed rest and pelvic rest for the past one week and taking Susten 200 BD apart from Folvite. Is it fine for me to go to my work place (I am a pathologist have to sit for three to four hours only)? Any other precaution?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
If there is no active bleeding you can safely go to work provided the roads and all are smooth and if it is not a very long drive. Please avoid intercourse and vaginal douching. Repeat USG after six weeks for a level 2 scan and look for placental migration. Continue Susten (Progesterone tablet).
Thank you doctor,
Please suggest a good calcium and vitamin D supplements. Do I need any other supplements? How long should I continue the Folic acid?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Folic acid supplements can be stopped now. Tablet Livogen XT once a day is enough it contains Folic acid 1.5 mg too. Tablet Shelcal 500 mg twice a day, it has both calcium and vitamin D.
Iron is preferable to be taken on an empty stomach. If however, you get nausea or acidity then you can take with food though absorption will be compromised. If your initial Hb is 11.5 or more then this treatment is enough.
