I'm confused and scared about visiting a doctor due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Can I continue taking my medication without consulting a doctor, considering I have been using it for 20 weeks and am currently in my 22nd week?

It is always recommended to consult with your doctor before making any decisions regarding your medication. While the COVID-19 pandemic has caused concerns about visiting healthcare facilities, it is important to prioritize your health and safety. Your doctor is best equipped to assess your specific situation, evaluate the effectiveness of your current medication, and make any necessary adjustments or recommendations. They can also provide guidance on alternative methods of consultation such as telemedicine or online consultations. Remember that self-medication or abruptly stopping prescribed medications can have serious consequences on your health. Therefore, reach out to your healthcare provider for advice tailored to your individual needs during this challenging time.

Answer is a simple plain NO. Please don't take any medicine without doctor's approval. I would recommend getting your midwife's phone number or any obgyn who will help you over the phone with this. It might not be possible to go to them during this pandemic but that doesn't mean you can be careless about the things you put in yourself because now you have your cutie pie to take care of as well.

Take care.
