Ovidrel injections while pregnant
Dear Dr

I am 7 1/2 weeks pregnant and went for my 2nd sonar today. Everything seems healthy and I feel great. I was prescribed Cyclogest from the onset of my pregnancy and as from 8 weeks I have to get 2 Ovidrel injections per week.

I have the greatest trust in my gynae, but read on the Internet that one should not take Ovidrel once pregnant? Please advise.

Thank you.

You would have to ask your doctor why he has prescribed this. It is usuallly used as a fertility treatment.
