Hello irhan,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Polio is a disease caused by a virus and can cause nerve damage. Symptoms of polio can vary depending on the type. In mild conditions, sufferers can only experience signs of mild pain that can improve within 1 to 2 weeks (abortive polio), namely fever, sore throat, headache, vomiting, weakness, back pain or stiffness of the back, hands and feet, and muscle aches or fatigue. However, in other more severe conditions, sufferers can also experience paralysis, difficulty breathing, and can even lead to death.

The polio virus can be transmitted in various ways, for example:

Direct contact with feces of people with polio or polio virus carriers (even though they do not show symptoms of polio disease), either directly or indirectly (for example through fecal-contaminated objects) Consuming food or drinks that are contaminated with polio virus from polio-infected feces or polio virus carriers Contact close to a sufferer of a polio virus carrier or polio infection that occurs in pregnant women is not always dangerous. If this polio infection occurs before pregnancy, often, pregnancy can last until delivery, provided there are no other complications. However, if this polio infection occurs during pregnancy, especially when the gestational age is still young, then the risk of miscarriage, premature labor, or a fetus still born (stillbirth) will be much higher. Polio infection during pregnancy also has a higher risk of causing paralysis in your womb.

Furthermore, your process of breastfeeding your baby after childbirth can further increase your baby's risk of getting infected with polio. Although several studies have succeeded in proving the existence of antibodies to the polio virus in breast milk produced by mothers who suffer from polio, but it is undeniable also that this breast milk contains polio virus that can be transmitted to breastfed babies. However, the purchase of complete polio immunization in infants is known to minimize the risk of transmission of infection very significantly, so that later you can continue to breastfeed your baby with breast milk.

Regarding your condition, we recommend that you consult directly with the obstetrician who treats you to find the best solution to overcome your illness, while also minimizing the risk of pregnancy disorders and the risk of transmitting the disease to the fetus in your womb.

Hope this helps ...
