doctor,rnrnI am 16 weeks pregnant and for 3 days every night I have a fever with a temperature of 38.4 °C and above…, accompanied by flue and cough…when the fever is monitored the fetal heart rate is monitored via Doppler. increased which is usually in the range above 140 to 150, to 168 to 176, what I want to ask is how long the tolerance of the increased heart rate when the mother has a fever … on the one hand during pregnancy sorting out to avoid taking chemical drugs …, but also worried about the condition of the fetus because of the high heart rate, please advise should I let my fever heal on its own or go to the doctor by being forced to take chemical drugs? Understand that this is the first child so I’m a little careful to take steps…, thank you very much in advance for the answer

Hi Rini. It is understandable that the first pregnancy is the most challenging pregnancy that you learn at this time. Indeed, during pregnancy, you need to limit the consumption of drugs because indiscriminate consumption of drugs can be at risk of harming the fetus. However, that doesn't mean you can't take medication. You should consult with your doctor regarding the selection of drugs that are safe for pregnant women and their fetuses.

In general, during pregnancy, the immune function changes to a lesser extent in order to protect the fetus and mother. This condition has the effect of being more susceptible to disease. The presence of fever in the mother, if not handled properly, especially to the point of giving the effect of an increase in the high fetal heart rate, will actually endanger fetal development and risk fetal death.

A normal fetal heart rate is 120-160 beats per minute and more than 160 is considered a fetal distress and is a dangerous condition for the fetus. Fever on your own needs to be studied whether the cause is a virus, bacteria or certain parasites. Specific treatment is important to get the appropriate treatment. The thing you can do for a while is to consume fever-reducing drugs such as paracetamol, which is safe for pregnant women. By lowering the heat, it is hoped that the fetal distress can be relieved and you can consult with your doctor about the right treatment for your condition. Consumption of adequate fluids, adequate rest, consumption of balanced nutritional foods can help. Hopefully helpful, and thank you. Regards, Dr Alyssa
