Brief Answer: Rise in body temperature is normal. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to XXXXXXX Rise in the body temperature uptown 0.5 to 1*F is normal with the injection she is receiving. Also pregnancy itself will raise body temperature by upto 1*F. So no need to worry unless body temperature is more than 101*F. The injection will rarely cause chills. If she has no redness & induration (lump) at the injection site, you need not worry. You can measure body temperature with thermometer & if it's less than 101*F & if she has no other symptom like cold, cough or urinary problem you can consider the rise in body temperature & chills as normal symptoms & disregard it. Hope this helps you. Let me know if you have other concerns. Regards.

Brief Answer: Injection supports pregnancy. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome back. The injection is given to support pregnancy & prevent abortion. If there is no previous history of abortions or infertility treatment, she can travel. Just avoid jerks during travel (avoid traveling by rough roads). You just mentioned about pain. If pain is in lower abdomen, please avoid travel. If pain is at injection site, there is no contraindication for travel. Your obstetrician will be best guide, as she knows her previous history & she has examined her personally. Regards.
