Thanks for posting your query

The after effects of ingesting hair XXXXXXX are variable and it can damage the stomach, esophagus and even lead to neurological symptoms. But the patient’s recovery and response depends on the amount of XXXXXXX swallowed and the time duration of treatment received.

If large amount was ingested then damage to the organs can occur for weeks even after recovery.

It is good to know that she is doing well now and she can think of conception. There would not be any major effects on the child if she conceives; but it is advisable to visit a Gynaecologist for clinical examination so that any abnormality or issue ( if any due to XXXXXXX intake) can be ruled out.

Since she has just got back to normal schedule it is also necessary that she is not alone as patients tend to go into depression phase after any such incident. Try to find out if she needs any counseling which can help her better.

Hope this answers your query. I will be available for follow up query if any.

Thanks for the follow up

It is good to know that everything was clear. The XXXXXXX would not have any effect on the body now.

She can go ahead with the family planning.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have more concerns. If all your queries are answered, please close this discussion.
