Brief Answer:
Azoran is a pregnancy category D drug.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us.

Azoran is a pregnancy category D drug and this means the drug has been shown to have unwanted side effects on the fetus. Please ask your health care provider on further action to be taken in this context.

Ecosprin is usually given during the first trimester of pregnancy. You may not need it as you are well into your second trimester. This usage is based on your consultant's judgement.

You can ask to have an anomalies scan to see if any damage has been done. Further management can be planned accordingly.

Hope your query has been answered. Please feel free to contact for further clarifications. I will be happy to help.

Brief Answer:
Immunocompromisation, neuro-musculo-skeletal.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing back.

Fetuses can develop immunological problems like lessened lymphocytes, diminished IgG and IgM levels, pancytopenia and severe immune deficiency. Neuro-musculo-skeletal abnormalities like myelo-meningocele, hip dislocation and club foot have also been noticed as are Cytomegalovirus infections.

So, the benefits of drug intake should be weighed against the risks and your consultant is the better judge.

Hope I have answered your query. Please get back if you need more information. I will be glad to help.

meanwhile my marriage ended in a lasted only for 2 months. it was not due to my illness. there was no problem in sexual relation. it was due to our difference in temperament. i badly want a partner who can care me and i want a baby. my doubts are:
