Dropper during pregnancy

Even if a woman is not pregnant for the first time, it's still a new period in her life for her. And since the moment of her offensive, the woman has to make great efforts to provide comfortable conditions for the future baby in pregnancy. Often during pregnancy, there are various complications that can lead to interruption of pregnancy or any other pathological conditions. In such cases, a gynecologist often prescribes a procedure - a so-called dropper. In this article we will understand - in what cases is a dropper administered during pregnancy and how it will affect the condition of the fetus and the most pregnant one.

In general, droppers during pregnancy are usually placed in three cases - with toxicosis, with the threat of termination of pregnancy and before childbirth. Let's consider each case separately.

A dropper with toxicosis



Toxicosis during pregnancy manifests itself in different degrees of severity:

  • mild severity of toxicosis - vomiting can be up to five times a day,

  • average severity - vomiting occurs up to ten times a day,

  • heavy - more than ten times a day.


  • The reason for hospitalization is the average severity of toxicosis. It is at this degree appointed dropper. In this case, medications, administered with the help of a dropper, are aimed at purifying the body of toxins. If a pregnant woman has a severe degree of toxicosis, hospitalization and administration of a dropper are mandatory and necessary measures. This is due to the fact that a strong constant vomiting exhausts the body, but most importantly - it dehydrates it, while vital nutrients vital for the mother and baby are washed away. Through the dropper is introduced a physiological solution, glucose, salt, the necessary vitamins. In addition, the dropper helps to relax the nervous system as a whole in the pregnant woman, and also improve the function of the gastrointestinal tract and just calm the woman.

    A dropper with a threat of miscarriage



    If a pregnant woman has a tone of the uterus after 12 weeks, she is prescribed a dropper with magnesium. This procedure helps not only to relax the uterus, but also to improve blood flow in the uterus and placenta. At later terms, with the threat of termination of pregnancy, drugs that help reduce the contractility of the uterus are used. In such cases, the drug Ginipral is often used - since the second trimester it has been prescribed as a part of a dropper.

    If there is fetal hypoxia or premature ripening of the placenta, a "digging" procedure is also necessary.

    Prenatal dropper



    Sometimes it happens that the woman's labor can not begin in any way, even after the introduction of special substances that relax the cervix and facilitate the appearance of fights. It is in these cases, when the waters have already moved away, and there are still no fights, and a dropper is also prescribed - this time the main component of it is oxytocin. But such a dropper is placed only 6 hours after the dropper with pessaries.

    If the doctor prescribed a dropper for you, then you saw it as a necessity, and you should not abandon the procedure without preliminary weighing and thinking. Nobody argues that natural birth and non-interference in the natural process of pregnancy are preferable, because we are already "spiked" with chemistry. I do not want to feed my future baby to her already in the womb. But sometimes there are cases when the threat to the health of the mother or fetus is so great that two evils have to choose less, and the lesser evil in this case is the introduction of medications for the sake of preserving the life of the unborn child.
