Pregnancy Program After A History Of Rubella Infection In The First Pregnancy?
Good afternoon. I want to ask. At the age of 30 days my child was diagnosed with Rubella from the TORCH check recommended by a pediatrician. So, for example, if I am going to a second child program, do I have to check the TORCH first? Because I am worried that the virus will come from me and spread to my child. Thank you in advance
Hello good afternoon, thanks for the question
Congenital rubella syndrome is a group of symptoms due to rubella infection that is passed on by the mother during pregnancy in the first trimester. Mothers who are infected with the rubella virus in the first trimester will have a very high risk of transmitting the infection to the fetus.
In pregnant women, rubella can cause no symptoms or only mild symptoms such as symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection, low-grade fever, red eyes, enlarged lymph nodes, and a reddish rash on the body.
Whereas in jains, it can cause no symptoms, death in the uterus, or there are symptoms that refer to abnormalities due to rubella infection that appear after birth, these symptoms include:
Growth disorders during the womb
Brain and meninges infection
Congenital heart disease
For women who are planning a pregnancy it is recommended that they check with their doctor to ensure that they have immunity to rubella infection before becoming pregnant. Because the MMR vaccine is an attenuated vaccine, pregnant women who have not received the MMR vaccine must wait until delivery to receive the MMR vaccine.
Likewise for you, if your baby has been diagnosed with rubella, then you need to be tested for rubella and get the MMR vaccine to make sure that you have immunity to rubella infection. You can plan your next pregnancy at least 4 weeks after getting the rubella vaccine.
That's all, hope you can help
