Hi Meiayu, Thank you for the question.
A pregnant woman is prone to infections because her immune system generally decreases when she is pregnant. Respiratory tract infection or flu is one of the infections that can be experienced by pregnant women. Pregnant women should be careful about the use of all kinds of drugs because they can affect the fetus they are carrying. The administration of drugs to pregnant women must also be in accordance with the indications.
You can do some natural ways to deal with the flu, as follows:
eat more nutritious food
drink more water
use a humidifier, drink warm water, or take lozenges
do gargle with warm water mixed with salt to relieve sore throat
You are advised to consult a doctor if flu symptoms do not improve for more than 4 days, accompanied by a high fever, shortness of breath, or coughing up phlegm with discolored mucus. You can choose to consult a general practitioner or a specialist in obstetrics and gynecology. If you consult a GP, don't forget to say that you are pregnant so that the doctor can prescribe a safe medicine for you.
