Chills In Pregnant Women, Does It Affect The Fetus?
, whether it can affect the fetus if the mother is chills
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The term cheerful actually does not have a specific definition in the medical world. For Indonesians, chills are usually a term to describe the condition of the body with a mild fever, feeling unwell or not fit, maybe accompanied by dizziness, weakness and it can be said that the condition is between healthy and sick.
In general, chills caused by a lack of endurance, fatigue, lack of sleep, weather changes or a mild viral infection will not affect the baby. But what you need to know, other infectious diseases such as Toxoplasma, CMV, and rubella infections, can also show mild symptoms such as chills in adults, and have fatal consequences for fetal development both while still in the womb and when it is born later.
So because as we said at the beginning, chills do not have a definite meaning in the medical world, to be safe, you should still get yourself checked by a gynecologist, especially if you haven't done a TORCH examination. By looking directly, it will be easier for your doctor to determine if it is a minor illness or one that requires further treatment.
Meanwhile, keep your hands and food clean, don't eat undercooked meat, always regularly check your pregnancy with your obstetrician, get adequate rest and avoid stress and cigarette smoke. So, hopefully it answers your question.
