Medicines during Pregnancy
« on: July 22, 2016, 05:10:47 AM »
Hello All,

I m a mother of 7 yrs old thal major girl, & I m 7 month pregnant ( baby is thal trait according to CVS done) , in 3rd month my HB was 11 & in 7th month it is 9.5. So doctor has started the medicines but she is doubtful whether  it will work in my case as i m thal carrier. So does anybody know any other solution for this or any medicine/supplement for this.


Thanks is advance.


Sarika M.

Your Hb is not an issue unless it drops below 8. What you are seeing is perfectly normal for thal minors during pregnancy. You should be taking L-methylfolate to help increase your Hb. Wheatgrass tablets can also help.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

Natural vitamin E is very important during thal minor pregnancies to help prevent clotting problems between the uterus and placenta. Vitamin B-12 is useful for thals all of the time, and even more during pregnancy. If you need iron during the pregnancy, Zepiron is safe.

Thanks Andy.

Last time when doctor found I am Thal Minor and HB only 7 at my pregnancy level then she changed Zepiron and advised only Folic acid.

But I don't know the reason..

If your Hb drops that low in pregnancy, it is almost certain that you need iron.

Natural vitamin E is always safe to take, unless one is taking a blood thinning drug. Vitamin E is essential for thal minors during pregnancy.
