Use of drugs during pregnancy<br /><br />Gestation is a specific condition of the woman and therefore, states of health and illness of the mother can be determinants of good prenatal development.<br /><br />The pregnant woman can suffer any type of illness so, sometimes, it is necessary that the doctor has to prescribe a treatment with medicines. According to some studies, it is estimated that about 35% of pregnant women have to take some medication, excluding vitamin supplements.<br />In the early 1960s, a drug, thalidomide, was found to be responsible for the birth of children with severe congenital malformations (absence of limbs, abnormalities of the eyes, heart, etc.). Thereafter, the teratogenic effect of the drugs in experimental animals was studied before their commercialization, and an epidemiological investigation of the effect of the drugs in the human fetuses was developed.<br /><br />Medications (or any environmental agent) capable of producing congenital defects, ie, physical, psychic or functional malformations, are teratogens.<br /><br />For any woman who becomes pregnant, the risk of her child being born with a congenital defect is 2-5%. Teratogenic agents increase the risk of certain defects in the children of women exposed to them. However, it must be taken into account that the action of teratogenic agents will depend on:<br /><br />The genetic makeup of each exposed individual, ie there will be fetuses that are going to be more likely to be affected than others.
