Pregnant, breathing difficulty, cervical polyps. Taking betnesol. Ultrasound shows nuchal loop. Necessary to take betnesol?

Hi.. I am in my 30th week of pregnancy.. and had breathing difficulty about a month back and am OK now after homoeopathic medicine.. also have a cervical polyp .. my doctor advised me to take Betnesol 12 mg (3x 4 mg) and repeat after 24 hours.. but in the scan taken 3 days back.. it shows that the baby is normal except for a single nuchal loop.. is it still necessary for me to take the betnasol 12 mg?

Hi Diviya,

Welcome to healthcaremagic.
Your doctor must have good reasons why he prescribed the medication so I suggest you take the betnasol 12mg as prescribed. Did your doctor explain to you the reason for the betnasol? Probably for fetal lung maturation since you are having a cervical polyp ( which is a pregnancy risk factor for premature labor). Just complete the treatment or give him/her a call to find out the actual indication of the betnasol 12mg.

Hope this helps
