Green tea, or even black tea, is considerably safer during pregnancy than coffee. The main reason for this is that tea is much lower in caffeine than coffee; coffee typically contains contains 2-4 times as much caffeine per cup as green tea. While small amounts of caffeine are perfectly safe during pregnancy, there is some evidence that heavy caffeine use may increase the risk of miscarriage or other problems.

Drinking several cups of green tea a day is perfectly safe, but drinking the same amount of coffee is probably not a good idea. A single cup of coffee though is probably just fine. Don't worry too much! Green tea tends to be milder overall on the body than coffee, not just because of the caffeine, but because coffee can be harsher on your digestive system and is more acidic.

Is it safe to drink decaf tea during pregnancy?

Yes, decaffeinated teas and even decaf coffee are safe to drink.Caffeinated teas are even safe to drink during pregnancy, in moderation. The amount of caffeine in a typical cup of tea is much less than that in a typical cup of coffee. The current stance of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is that up to 200mg of caffeine daily is totally safe during pregnancy. This is enough for 1-2 cups of coffee or 3-5 cups of tea, depending on how strong it is.Even higher amounts are going to be much safer than, say, smoking or alcohol consumption. Moderate tea and coffee drinking is not worth worrying about, although tea is probably a safer bet as it is much lower in caffeine.Yes u can. U can actually drink 3-4 cups of normal tea but i wud suggest decaf cups 3-4 are gud.

There are safe, effective treatments for chlamydia during pregnancy. It is much safer to take treatment than it is to stay infected.

Untreated chlamydia during pregnancy can cause premature rupture of membranes or preterm labor. A baby born to a woman who has chlamydia at the time of delivery may have pneumonia, infection of the reproductive tract, or conjunctivitis. Women treated for chlamydia during pregnancy should be retested three weeks after treatment, as well as three months after treatment. Women under 26 or with a new partner during pregnancy should also be tested in the third trimester to make sure they haven't been reinfected before delivery.
