General indications

Indications for "Actovegin" pregnancy tablets, droppers and injections

All of the above cases can occur in women who are pregnant. But when the child is pregnant, specific conditions arise that require the appointment of Actovegin.

Phytoplacental insufficiency

"Actovegin" during pregnancy is most often prescribed for circulatory disorders in the placenta. Such conditions include phytoplacental insufficiency.

Pathology in the early stages is associated with impaired placental formation, which can occur due to hormonal failures, the use of poor-quality food, the entry of harmful substances into the body.

"Actovegin" in tablets or injections is prescribed with the following forms of placental insufficiency.

  • With acute .It occurs with low placentation, that is, when the placenta is low in the uterus and there is a threat of its detachment.
  • With chronic .When the circulatory disturbances in the placenta increase gradually, and if at first the body copes with the changes, then the longer there are changes, the higher the probability of complications for the fetus.
In later terms, changes occur in the already formed placenta due to anemia of a pregnant or premature aging of the placenta. If the necessary treatment is not given in time, placental insufficiency can lead to fetal oxygen starvation, delay in its development, and in some cases, death.

Malnutrition can occur due to a number of reasons, it can be:

  • infection during pregnancy;
  • metabolic disorders;
  • physical illnesses of the woman;
  • fetal development abnormalities;
  • is a multiple pregnancy.
Malnutrition can threaten a child with hypotrophy( lack of body weight due to a chronic eating disorder), so to protect the mother and baby, calf blood extract is prescribed in tablets and sometimes in injections.

Conflict in blood group and Rhesus

During pregnancy, the exposure of Rh-positive or disparate fetal red blood cells to the bloodstream of a mother with negative rhesus causes the production of antibodies. In this case, swelling of the placenta and squeezing of the vessels, which are dangerous for the child, can occur.

In such cases, as well as with severe concomitant diseases such as diabetes, heart defects, rheumatism, the doctor prescribes Actovegin, according to the recommendations prescribed in the instructions for the use of intravenous medication.

"Actovegin" during pregnancy in this case is administered intravenously: struino and drip.

  • Inkjet. You can enter no more than 5 ml, slowly.
  • Drip .Use a ready-made solution in a 250 ml vial, which is injected at a rate of 2-3 ml per minute.

"Actovegin" with intravenous administration is prescribed once a day daily or several times a week. The duration of the course is determined by the attending physician.

If intravenous administration of the drug is not possible, the treatment is administered intramuscularly, 5 ml once a day or every other day. After intramuscular injection of the drug at the site of the injection, edema or hematoma may appear. In addition, the injection is very painful.

Attention! The high rate of intravenous injection of "Actovegin" can cause a sharp drop in pressure. Therefore, the drug is injected slowly, and after a dropper or a prick you need to lie down for a while.

Hereditary thrombophilia

Hereditary thrombophilia occurs when the altered gene is genetically transmitted, which leads to a clotting disorder, and thrombi in the vessels are formed. In pregnant women, this disease can lead to miscarriage, complications after childbirth, the formation of blood clots in the vessels of the placenta, which threatens the child's oxygen starvation.

With genetic thrombinfilia, "Actovegin" and "Curantil"( improves blood circulation) are prescribed by the courses even at the stage of pregnancy planning, as well as throughout its length. In tableted form, the extract is also used if the pregnant woman often suffers from a cold. Gemaderivat calf blood is taken, given the following rules:

  • one to two dragees per reception;
  • no more than three times a day;
  • for thirty minutes before eating;
  • with a small amount of water;
  • pills do not need to be chewed.
