Hello doctor,

My wife has completed her eighth month of pregnancy and just started with the ninth month. This is her first pregnancy. She is feeling a labor pain, but the doctor told that it is not labor pain, and she will not deliver now and wait for 15 days. Doctor gave Anafortan injection to reduce the pain. Is that safe? We are worried as some people suggested that Anafortan should not be given. Please help.

We did an ultrasound scan and blood test, her hemoglobin level is 10.1.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As this is the first pregnancy, I would like to give a few general information. Now, after completion of the eighth month, there are mainly two types of pain which a female is going to perceive.

1) False labor pain and

2) Backache due to pregnancy itself.

False labor pain:

As pregnancy comes near the due date, the uterus starts paining. But there is no effect in the view of delivery. The pain is perceived by a woman but there is no opening of the mouth of uterus. The baby is fine and the doctor cannot get contration on seeing the abdomen. This type of pain followed by delivery pain in 10 to 15 days or more in the first pregnancy, and less than 10 days in 2nd or 3rd pregnancy. So you do not have to worry much about this pain as far as it is tolerable.

As pregnancy advances due to the increased size of uterus and baby, which takes a space in the abdomen and compresses the spinal cord causig the pain. It is continuous in nature and will be relieved only after delivery. For this type of pain, sometimes we advise painkiller gel or tablet if it is not tolerable. You can also do a hot compress on the back.

As far as Anafortan (combination of Camylofin and Paracetamol) is concerned, we avoid it as far as possible. But when it comes to one or two times, it is not harmful. When you are taking this drug continuously, especially in the ninth month, then only it is harmful. So you can take Anafortan (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) once or twice if the pain is more and if it is not delivery pain. So do not worry with one injection.

I hope this helps.
