Hello I think I am at 4-5 weeks and took Benylin Chesty Coughs(non-drowsy) two weeks ago. Back then I didn't realised I am pregnant at all.
It says 'Do not take this medicine if you are trying to become pregnant or are pregnant.' This makes me very scared. Would it be okay? I only took 1 or 2 syrup though. T_T

Medically I don't know but if it wasn't a huge dose & was around ovulation I can't imagine it doing anything as bean would have its own yolk sac before placenta grows I think? X

Don't worry at all, seriously.

Agree with others. At four weeks pregnant your baby is just a few cells. A miscarriage this early in would be due to a chromosomal abnormality and nothing you did could prevent it. Too early for outside influences to be a problem. I've been there, took tetracycline for acne and went in a panic to the doctor at four weeks pregnant who reassured me as above. Relax and enjoy your pregnancy smile
