    Can I take weight lose pills during pregnancy

    Hi there,
    I am worried, I am in my first trimester. I am a bit fat and was taking pills (Xenical) for losing weight. Can I continue taking this pill? I think since I am fat it might be difficult at the delivery time. During my first consultation, I asked the doctor about using that pill but didn't give a correct reply for it. I am afraid since I am hearing about the malpractices everywhere. I was thinking how can we know that we are a victim of it. I read an article related to it https://www.campisilaw.ca/blog/know-...l-malpractice/, I felt like my doctor is not listening as they didn't respond to my question. Might the doctor be an inexperienced person? Should I change my doctor?

    My guess is that you shouldn't take it, however I don't know for sure. Anytime you feel like you aren't getting the care you need from your doctor, you should definitely go with your gut and change doctors if possible.

    No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no. You should ask your doctor. But my brother who prescribes these and his RE wife give a firm no to these questions. They are notorious for breakthrough bleeding and unnecessary cramps.
