Waiting for medical exam but now pregnant

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife had to postpone embassy interview because of medical exam. December 2019 my wife went to get embassy medical exam but her xray shows abnormal scaring and was taking TB medicine. The hospital said she had to wait 1year after tb treatment. Jan9 she can get a new medical exam after sputum test. 

Now we are 1 month pregnant. We want to have the baby in the US but are concerned about the waiting time for medical exam and reschedule of embassy interview. That it may be to late to fly from Thailand to US.

You can certain ask if there is a medical concern, but otherwise pregnancy, in and of itself, is not a reason to expedite.

We already had a interview appointment Jan 6 2020. But had to postpone because hospital required 1year wait after tb treatment. 

Embassy said can reschedule interview date after medical exam is completed wich may be late Feb or early march. 

I'm wondering if somehow the hospital can do the exam a couple of months earlier. The hospital goes off of the cdc rules. I was trying to search of any rules pertains to pregnancy and leaniancy. After all her xray shows scar tissue but her sputum test was negative. After 6 months of antibiotics for precaution her end lab results conclude scar tissue on lung not from tb.

There aren't any pregnancy exceptions - other than health concerns for the mother or child.  If there were expectations for being pregnant everyone would get pregnant to come quickly. 

 

There are reasons you can use to move it along such as your need to get back to the US, offered a job there, etc.  Someone from Thailand or Vietnam recently got a DCF moved along because the Petitioner was older and COVID presented a risk.

 

YMMV

Looking at you other posts - you are going to have to wait until medically cleared.   There isn't any shortcut around that since the panel physician isn't clearing her medical

They won't waive the TB requirements for normal expedite reasons or pregnancy.
