I am 6 weeks pregnant and I had ginger tea with 2% of ginseng in it. I just read that ginseng should be avoided in early pregnancy. But I already had 3 cups of it. I am very worried now that I have hurt the baby.
Normally with things like that, you have to consume large amounts. Unless something changes (i.e. sudden abdominal pain, bleeding, etc.) then I don't think you'll have much to worry about. Keep going to the doctor regularly for your pregnancy and just avoid ginseng from now on, but I think you and the baby will be okay. Teas like that usually are not very strong. :)
