Patient :I am 6 weeks pregnant (unplanned). 2-3 weeks after conceiving, I unknowingly drank wine, was highly stressed, had a fluoride treatment at the dentist and received a MMR booster vaccine. my doctor is concerned about potential risks. online sources seem okay or inconclusive. I'd really appreciate another opinion. Thank you
Thanks for the query.
There is definitely a risk in taking MMR booster and fluoridated this time of conception. There could be some developmental anomalies in.the baby related to heart and bone development.
However We cannot exactly predict the risk. It can be said it is not conclusive but a risk exists. If you want to continue the pregnancy, you can take the risk and do all the necessary scan and level two scan at each trimester. Also discuss with you obstetrician regarding how to proceed further with this and what tests they may need to do. It is your choice to decide. We can only say there could be a risk although not quantified correctly.
Wish you a safe pregnancy
