Hi doctor,

I am 9 weeks pregnant. I had a mild perigestational hemorrhage during the 5th week. After taking medications, there is no subchorionic hematoma. Can I take an air travel of two and half hours to my native at the end of this month as I do not have anyone here to take care of me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  •  There is no evidence to suggest that flying while pregnant is harmful for either you or your baby if you are having a straightforward pregnancy. There are some safety guidelines for air travel during pregnancy that you should be aware of. 
  • You should carry a minimum hand luggage and place your belt looselyWalk after 45 minutes of interval, if it is a long journey.
  •  If you do not have any bleeding at present, nondiabetic and normotensive, then you can proceed for a flight travel. 
  • A mild perigestational hemorrhage (hemorrhage around the fetus) has nothing to avoid a flight travel.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • There was never a risk of miscarriage due to air travel till date. But, the fact is miscarriage can occur at any time to anybody and often the cause could not be found.
