Hi
I think that It is not the matter of worry. Most of drugs prescribed by doctors
are not harmful to foetus But you can go for USG for evaluation& well being of foetus.
.
I find this answer helpful

E Do not worry so much.As most of the organ formation of a baby is completed in 1st 12 wks of.Eventhough we cannot be sure.Most of the tablet do not show their teratogenicy in 1 or 2 tablets. But try to find out name of that tablet you have taken then all the tension will be relieved. There are different tests to find out different anomaly. But you can go for detailed sonographic evaluation of foetus with 4D then bleed test if required. But I do not think it is must.

why to worry, if the doctor has prescribed the drug than no need to worry as he will prescribe only those drugs which are safe in the pregnancy. if at all you are worried talk to you OBG doctor and get a ultrasound scan done as per the doctor advise to know that the baby is healthy.

Hi
I am a 36 year old female. I usually experience symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Recently, after eating undercooked chicken in a restaurant I started experiencing stomach disomfort then a few days later I started to have sometimes hard stools and sometimes loose stools with blood and mucus. I went to my doctor who diagnosed my symptoms as being a dysentry infection due to amebiasis (without stool test). After a week of treatment, I went for a colonoscopy and now the biopsy results say that I have Crohn's disease even though I never had any symptmoms. I went back to my family doctor and he was reluctant to accept the result and suggested that it could be a sort of a pseudo-Crohn due to the bacterial infection that I previously had. What should I believe? Could amebiasis cause colon ulcers?
