MMR Vaccine When Unconscious If Pregnant?
Doctor, I took the MMR injection. It turned out that after the injection, 1 week later I was declared pregnant with 2 weeks of gestation. i didn’t realize it doctor because i was only about 20 days from my menstrual period. how is this doctor? What should I do? Is my child positive for a disability?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
MMR immunization (mumps, measles, and rubella) can provide sufferers against 3 types of diseases, namely:
This disease occurs due to a viral infection of the parotid gland, which is a type of salivary gland located in the lower jaw. This infection causes the kelenjer to become inflamed, causing swelling under the jaw, accompanied by pain, fever, dizziness, headache, swollen lymph nodes around the ears or neck, fatigue, weakness, nausea, decreased appetite, and various other complaints. If treatment is late, people with mumps can experience problems with the testes or ovaries, resulting in infertility, deafness, meningitis, and even death. Measles (measles)
This disease occurs due to a viral infection characterized by fever, a reddish skin rash that spreads almost all over the body, cough, runny nose, red, watery eyes, and so on. If not treated properly, measles can cause serious complications, such as ear infections, diarrhea, pneumonia, brain damage and death. Rubella (German measles)
This disease is caused by a viral infection characterized by fever, sore throat, skin rash, headache, red eyes, and itching. In children, this condition can be mild. However, if this infection is transmitted to pregnant women, then the risk of miscarriage, stillborn babies, and severe congenital defects can be greatly increased. The three types of viruses that cause the diseases above can be very easily transmitted. Therefore, given this very easy mode of transmission, coupled with the risk of serious complications that may arise, immunization is very important to do.
You need to know, that MMR immunization is not intended for pregnant women. It is feared that the MMR vaccine will have a negative impact on the fetus in the womb because it can cause infection in the uterus. Ideally, after undergoing MMR immunization you need to wait at least 4 weeks before being able to plan a pregnancy.
Our advice is that you have your uterus checked immediately to a gynecologist. Consult directly with him regarding what you can do. Several types of examinations, such as ultrasound, DNA amniocentesis, etc. may be performed by doctors to monitor the health condition of your fetus, including detecting the risk of defects early on.
Hope it helps ..
