Does anyone know if I can use a tens unit while being pregnant on my back and neck? I meesed my back and neck up like 2 weeks ago. I am almost 25 weeks pregnant with my 3rd.

  • Call your doctor. I would not take advice from the internet for a real question about your child's well being.

  • You can use a tens units during labor. They are used for labor so it could be used on your back and neck. Make sure you let your doctor and the hospital know you want to use it and there should be no problem.
