Hello from JA

Customer: replied 4 years ago.


i dont have the name of them i bought them from a chineese shop

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
It is really impossible to say then.

Was this an herbal combination?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.


yes, so just taking them such a short time into the prenancy may have harmed the baby ?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
It is unlikely.

Do you have the bottle, and can you go back to the same shop?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

yes i can go back to the shop the bottle is un marked

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
OK
1. Most herbal preparations are not harmful. But we only have traditional use to go on. But, probabilities are on your side.
2. Go back to the shop and get the exact ingredients. You can look these up and see if there are any warnings.
3. Show the list to your doctor.

Overall chances are you are OK.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
Otherwise please choose a positive rating . But, still come back if you need to…think of something later, etc. Bonuses are appreciated.
