Is It Necessary To Take Medication For A Positive IGG Toxo Result During Pregnancy?
My gestational age is 23 weeks, with almost 3 months of taking the drugs spiramicyn, herclov, and isoprinosin. Because I was positive at the beginning of my pregnancy, my IGG toxo was 596. After taking the medication for 3 months, I checked again that the IGG toxo blood dropped to 319. And IGM toxo was 0.896. R n Should I continue my drug therapy?
Hello, firstname.lastname@example.org, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
TORCH infection (Toxoplasmosis, Other, Rubella, CMV, Herpes) is an infection that can threaten the fetus. If a person has been diagnosed with TORCH during pregnancy, there are several things that need to be considered. Spiramycin is consumed by pregnant women who are positive for toxoplasmosis at gestational age before 18 weeks. In addition to therapy with spiramycin, the fetus will be checked for signs of infection. Routine ultrasound is also performed regularly every 4 weeks until delivery. If the fetus is not proven to be infected and there are no abnormalities on the ultrasound, then the spiramycin consumption is continued until delivery. However, if there are signs of infection in the fetus and / or abnormalities are found on ultrasound, there will be other therapy that must be done. Meanwhile, herclov (valacyclovir) and isoprinosin are antiviral agents for the treatment of viral infections such as herpes and measles.
My advice, you should not stop therapy without the knowledge of the doctor who treats you directly. Doctors have their own treatment plans and considerations that are tailored to the patient's condition. What you can do is routine control to the doctor as recommended by your doctor, take medication according to doctor's rules, and maintain the health of your pregnancy.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
