Q:

Gud mrng every1..i would like to ask 1 thing
My 5th month is gng on and my doctor didn't advised my TT injection; i asked her once she refused and said if u had in the last 3-4 yrs then it is fine it lasts for 10 yrs so no need for that.
I live in Canada but my frnds n family members in India said TT injection is given twice to the patients. I m worried abt dis. kindly advise

Dear, TT is given twice in a span of 30 days during pregnancy. However if your doc says so and you've had it earlier, then trust him or her. If you are concerned clarify with the doc once and say you are anxious. Doc will surely explain to you..

I too had 2 dose of tt injection.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hi,,
Please take the first dose asap.. it should be given within completion of 24weeks.. it is nothing to do with the previous tetvac vaccines

Dr. Neha D. Khodke

Hi Upasana, TT injections are given in the 6th and 7th months (gap of 30 days). This is the protocol followed in India. Are regulations in Canada different? Please ask your gynecologist and have an open discussion
