Thanks for responding! I know, I know... step away from google. LOL I hate worrying myself
They let you take Tamiflu? I asked and they told me no, said it was dangerous. I begged for something to make it go away, but the doctor told me there wasnt any meds I could take other than tylenol... I wish it wasnt christmas break so I could call my gyno
That's misleading for them to tell you it's dangerous. It's Category C, so no clinical trials have been done to show a result either way.
This is from a few years ago:
Pregnant women: Pregnancy increases the risk of complications, hospitalization, and severe disease. One study estimated the risk of hospitalization for 2009 H1N1 to be four times higher for pregnant women than for the general population (Jamieson DJ, et al. Lancet. 2009;374:451-458). While oseltamivir and zanamivir are "Pregnancy Category C" medications, meaning no clinical studies have been conducted to assess the safety of these medications for pregnant women, available data suggest pregnant women with suspected or confirmed influenza should receive prompt antiviral therapy, and pregnancy should not be considered a contraindication to treatment with oseltamivir or zanamivir. Oseltamivir is preferred for treatment of pregnant women because of its systemic activity.
More recent info suggests taking it, too, but it's really your call. I took it in 2009 when in 1st tri with DD1 because of the H1N1 outbreak in my classroom. You do need to start it asap, though.
GL and I hope you feel better soon!
