Hello lisslam,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

TT (tetanus toxoid) immunization is useful in providing immunity to tetanus, a disease caused by Clostridium tetani bacterial infection which causes muscle stiffness and spasm and is potentially deadly. Bacteria that cause tetanus are susceptible to entering the body by infecting deep wounds, including maternal scars from postnatal mothers and umbilical cord puppets in newborns. To minimize this risk, all women of childbearing age (ages 15-39 years) need to get TT immunization.


So that the mother and baby can be optimally protected from tetanus, it is recommended to get TT immunization 3 to 4 times before delivery. Therefore, this immunization is recommended to be done from the beginning, even before you get married, during pregnancy, until after delivery later. If you do not get this immunization, provided you have received tetanus immunization before (for example when you were a child), you actually already have protection against tetanus. It's just that, of course the protection you get isn't optimal if you get complete immunization.


All choices go back to yourself. If you want to strive for optimal health for you and your future fetus, undergoing TT immunization early is certainly better. Consult directly with your doctor or obstetrician if you still have doubts regarding this matter, ok?


I hope this helps.
