According to new research, pregnant women are likely to overestimate the risk of birth defects due to specific medicines, foods and chemicals. The study, completed by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health along with the University of Oslo and Toronto Hospital, Canada, shows that almost 8 out of 10 women seek info about medication during pregnancy. Most pregnant women used multiple sources to gather info. For example, women may check with doctors, browse websites and read medication labels. The main problem is that often, (25% of the time) the information women gathered about medications was inconsistent across sources. The most common consequence of women getting inconsistent information was that the mama-to-be would choose to not use the medication at all. How this study affects you: Of course it's smart to be leery of taking excessive medication during pregnancy. However, due to inconsistent information, many pregnant women don't trust any medications, even medications they may really need, such as a prescribed medication to treat a urinary tract infection. If you're pregnant and sick, you really need to weigh the actual pros and cons of taking medication vs. not taking medication. In some cases, medication is a good idea during pregnancy. Plus, not all medications are as harmful as others. Learn more:
