Ppd Screening

Sue - October 17

Is it safe to have a PPD screening test done while pregnant? I have to have one for my job and I don't know if I should.

Your job will just have to understand that you can't if your doc advises against it. Beyond that, being pregnant, you have a right to oppose medical treatment because of that baby. I wouldn't do it.

I just went through this also. The pharmisist said that it is a catagory c, which means they haven't done studies on humans yet. But they have don it on animals and it has had bad results. They said contact my doctor and see what they say. They also said it might beable to be waivered if pregnancy is present
