Hello Citra,


When pregnant it is very important to maintain the immune system so it is not easily affected by diseases, including colds and coughs. In general, phlegm ingested by flu and cough (caused by a viral infection) is not dangerous. However, you should be aware if the cough is more than 2 weeks old, bloody cough, or accompanied by fever and shortness of breath. If there are more severe complaints like that, you should immediately consult a doctor.


If there are no serious complaints, you don't need to worry. You can do the following tips to relieve colds and coughs during pregnancy:

Get enough rest
Consumption of warm food and drinks
Make sure the body's nutrition and fluid needs are met every day
Drink plenty of water
Sleep with a higher pillow
Ensure good air ventilation

If the flu and cough get worse, or are accompanied by fever, chest pain, shortness of breath, you should consult a doctor directly so that further tests can be done so that you can be given safer medicines for pregnant women. Avoid taking cold medicine and cough without doctor's advice.


Hope it helps you,


Thank you
