Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pulmonary TB (tuberculosis) is a disease that is indeed common in our country. This disease can be transmitted very easily, especially through inhalation of respiratory tract mucus splashes, for example when a person coughs, sneezes, or spits. Therefore, people who come in close contact with people with pulmonary TB (including those who live in the same house, such as those who are living with your husband and children) are at very high risk of experiencing TB.
The question now is, have you checked your TB status to the doctor? How long has your husband and child been treated for TB?
Your husband and child who are suffering from TB and are undergoing TB treatment are not really obstacles for you to undergo a pregnancy program. However, if you have never checked your TB status, we recommend that you first check yourself to the doctor for further examination. It is feared that you actually have contracted TB, even though you have not shown any typical symptoms. If it turns out you really suffer from TB, then you should take TB treatment first before undergoing a pregnancy program. Therefore, several types of TB drugs are not recommended for consumption during pregnancy because of its potential to cause fetal defects. However, if an examination has been carried out, and it is stated that you are free of TB, then you can have a pregnancy program, of course, with direct guidance from a doctor or obstetrician. To reduce your risk of contracting TB, you should:
Remind your husband and child to always get regular medical treatment as recommended by the doctor
Always keep your neighborhood clean, not too densely populated, well lit.
Ask your husband and child to use a mask, you should also use a mask
Ask your husband and child not to cough, sneeze and spit carelessly. Remind them to wash their hands, shower, brush their teeth, and shorten their nails. Separate the two of their bathrooms if necessary.
Maintain your immune system by getting enough rest, eating nutritious food, and always living a healthy lifestyle.
Hope this helps ...
