Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I got pregnant with an IUD (copper-T). It was confirmed after blood test and the copper-T was removed. My last menstruation was 40 days before. Shall I continue the pregnancy? How will be the growth of the baby? Do I need any precaution? This is my second pregnancy. I delivered my first child before six years through C-section and he is healthy. Please advice.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Once the copper-T is removed, then it is very safe to continue the pregnancy and you can happily go ahead with the pregnancy. There is no harm to the baby's health for sure; you can be assured about that. Baby will be quite normal. Just get your serial ultrasound done as advised by your gynecologist. There are no additional precautions need to be taken in your case. Follow the routine precautions a pregnant woman should take, like good diet, maintain hygiene and health. Do not lift heavy weight, take iron and calcium supplements regularly. Have regular health checkups with your gynecologist. As you had a cesarean section, there are fair enough chances that you can have a C-section this time as well. So, do not worry.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
