Question
Posted by: curious | 2011/09/07

what happens if you deworm a pregnant woman?

what happens if you deworm a pregnant woman? i heard people who have taken deworming tablets and had to go to the bathroom quite a few times for a number 2.
is it possible to kill the baby like this (sorry for the lack of euphemism) because they can''t handle the medication?

i''m just curious to know because i always thought you deworm animals, not people!

Many of the medications used are not safe in pregnancy and can harm the baby.
