impaired motor activity of smooth muscles of the urinary tract. At the same time it has reduced immunity - it is necessary to ensure that the mother's body does not reject the cells of the developing baby as alien. All these physiological processes, however, they create preconditions for the development of a pregnant woman stagnation of urine and urinary tract infections.
All these effects are amplified in the second half of pregnancy, when the growing uterus compresses the ureters and bladder

. Therefore, quite often during pregnancy, women are appointed antibacterials. That's just worth it to take Palin?
Palin or pipemidic acid - is an antibacterial drug that is intended for the treatment of diseases of the kidneys and urinary tract. It belongs to the group of quinolones and actively kills pathogens of various infections of the urinary tract. For Palin most sensitive bacteria that cause cystitis and pyelonephritis.
The ingestion or as a rectal suppository Palin rapidly absorbed in the intestine into the blood, and thence into the unchanged form by the kidneys. It is in the kidneys and urinary tract appears its high concentration, so it is a great uroantiseptikom.
Palin may make some side effects:
- the part of the digestive system - decreased appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain
Abdominal pain: Types and Symptoms
- Nervous system - headache, blurred vision, excitement, bad mood, insomnia, sometimes - impairment of consciousness, hallucinations and convulsions;
- from the blood - decrease in the number of platelets in the blood and bleeding tendency, under certain metabolic disorders may develop anemia;
- allergic reactions - increased preparedness of the organism;
- In addition, in patients receiving Palina increased sensitivity to light, it is also possible development of resistance (insensitivity) to Palin pathogens.
Why not accept Palin pregnant women
Unfortunately, the lack of awareness of the ability of Palina have a negative effect on the fetus, including teratogenic (it leads to developmental abnormalities), as well as its ability to penetrate the placental barrier.
That lack of study of the impact on the fetus Palina was the reason for the prohibition of his appointment during pregnancy. Furthermore, Palin have side effects on the gastrointestinal tract, causing phenomena such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite. All these features are characteristic of the first half of pregnancy toxemia, so under the influence of Palina condition of the pregnant woman may significantly worsen.
In the second trimester (12-24 weeks) of pregnancy Palin sometimes prescribed, but under the strict supervision of a doctor in case of emergency, when its reception depends on the safe course of pregnancy.
In the third trimester of pregnancy, Palin again, it is better not to take. At this time, because it can cause a number of changes from the central and peripheral nervous system up to the seizures and impaired consciousness. It is undesirable side effects Palina as the ability to cause thrombocytopenia - decrease in the number of platelets in the blood. If the platelet count is restored to delivery, it will create a threat during childbirth bleeding. Troubles in the last months of pregnancy and the willingness of the body to allergic reactions, which can cause Palin.
With all these features Palina, it is better not to take during pregnancy.
And what do you do if a pregnant woman has begun a urinary tract infection?
In this case, the doctor will choose the safer drug. If the infection is not too pronounced, the obstetricians prescribe medication like herbal Kanefron. Kanefron has a mild anti-bacterial and diuretic effects, taking them out of the urinary tract pathogens and their metabolic products.
In more acute and the severity of inflammation in the urinary tract of women is assigned a single dose of an antibiotic Monural. Monural rapidly absorbed in the intestine into the blood, but does not bind to blood proteins and splits into metabolites (metabolic products) in the liver and enters the intact kidney and accumulated in the urinary tract, completely releasing them from pathogens.
Remember that no medicine can not be a woman during pregnancy to make yourself, as it is able to provide small, but it is contraindicated for women given the side effects.
