General & Family Physician 's  Response

You need to consult your gynecologist immediately. He/she will do a complete evaluation of your heart problem and prescribe medications to control your sinus tachycardia. If required he/she may refer you to a cardiac specialist.

It is very important to control your heart disease to ensure the safety and health of your unborn child.
