Is anesthesia safe during pregnancy?

Hello. I am scheduled for a procedure to get anesthesia on Wednesday (it is a minor procedure and outpatient). I have been trying to get pregnant but right now it is is too early for my pregnancy to show up on any test (if I am pregnant). I am not sure if I should go forward with the procedure or not.

Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns. You should remember any medicine during first 3 months of pregnancy is not safe. It can cause mutation of genes, abortion. If you want to plan baby take with your partner multivitamins(Zincovit, Revital) and folic acid 5 mg daily during 1 month and then try,it will decrease genetic risk and will make spermatozoa more active.
Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.
