Giving Chickenpox Vaccine To Prevent Transmission?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, a week ago, I was given the smallpox vaccine by the doctor, in anticipation of the transmission of chickenpox. My condition at that time, as far as I know, was TDK while pregnant, as of the 23rd of last month I was still having a menstrual cycle, and this month’s menstrual cycle, there are still a few days left.rnThen I found out, it turned out that I was pregnant. rnHow does the smallpox vaccine I receive affect this new pregnancy.rnThank you doctor.
Hello Mama uka, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
The varicella (chickenpox) vaccine should not be given to women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. This vaccine should not be given at least 1 month before planning a pregnancy.
The effect of giving the varicella vaccine or the safety of giving it to pregnant women is actually not clear in research, therefore this vaccine is not recommended to be given. Theoretically giving varicella vaccine to pregnant women can cause growth disorders and birth defects in the fetus. However, no side effects have been reported in infants born to mothers who accidentally received the varicella vaccine during pregnancy.
In this case, you should inform your obstetrician that you accidentally received the Varicella vaccine early in your pregnancy. By notifying your obstetrician, your doctor can closely monitor your pregnancy and fetal growth.
That's all the information from me, I hope it's enough to answer
