Low amniotic fluid in 9mn
Hi experts! I am going through the problem of low amniotic fluid index (AFI) and it's 10cm.my gynaecologist has suggested me to drink lots of water. My friend told me that she also faced the same problem and her doctor told her to take L - Arginine granules ARGIGEST by which her AFI increased to the expected level. But my doctor has advised me anything like that. What should I do. Should I take it without any prescription. Because if my AFI doesn't increase then my doctor will admit me before my due date which 27 July. And I don't want c-section as my rest of reports are normal.
