Injections During Early Pregnancy?
sorry I want to ask, then I was declared pregnant 5 weeks ago when I went to my doctor at the tt3 injection he said for the mother to start the pregnancy. What’s the injection?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tetanus is a disease caused by bacterial infection of Clostridium tetani which is characterized by stiffness and muscle spasms almost throughout the body. If late handled, this disease can be very deadly. Mothers giving birth and babies are one of the groups at risk of this disease, especially as a result of the birth process or unsterile umbilical cord puput.
To prevent the risk of tetanus in mothers and infants, tetanus (TT, tetanus toxoid) vaccine needs to be given. Ideally, to get optimal protection, this vaccine should be given when women enter childbearing age. However, if previously you never get this vaccine, then even during pregnancy this vaccine is safe to give. The timing of the TT vaccine itself can vary depending on the condition of the mother. Frequently, doctors recommend that you give 3 times the tetanus vaccine injection during pregnancy with a gap of each shot at least 4 weeks.
You should consult directly with your obstetrician or doctor so that the time for proper TT vaccine is scheduled. Not only that, so that you and your baby will avoid tetanus, do deliveries in a trusted health facility, which pays attention to sterility and aseptic in each process of pregnancy care and post-copy.
Hope this helps ...
