  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Saffron or Kesar in large dosage can cause uterine contractions by stimulating it. But in light quantity, it can be consumed as it can maintain blood pressure and can increase appetite. One should start it in 2nd trimester, but beware of duplicate or low quality or loose packed saffron. These could contain harmful chemicals for pregnancy.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
