Brief Answer:
Ritrod is acceptable

Detailed Answer:

Ritrod is a drug that helps prevent any uterine contractions. It keeps the uterus relaxed so that there are no complications like bleeding, premature pains, etc. Yes, you can go with it as prescribed by your doctor. But at the same time, avoid stress,heavy lifting,bending,intercourse. You need to take as much rest as possible.
The idea is to keep you relaxed at all cost.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
