Treatment Of CMV Virus In Pregnant Women?
Morning doctor, in this second pregnancy I was exposed to the igG CMV virus, cons. 455.7. what I want to ask: 1. What medicine should I take for this disease? Because I’m pregnant. How long do I have to take medicine? 3. What are the side effects for the fetus in the womb? 4. Can I recover? Because my first child got a CMV virus
Hello Diah1, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
CMV virus infection in pregnant women is indeed very high risk of causing transmission or even disability in the fetus being conceived, but all depends on the status of the mother's infection.
Basically, CMG IgG examination is only to determine whether the mother has been infected with the CMV virus before or not, and an avidity check to help determine whether there is a new recurring CMV infection. If only the results of this examination are positive and high without a positive CMV IgM, then the infection does not require any therapy or even requires further examination.
However, if IgM is positive, then you may have a recurring infection and the condition requires further monitoring of the fetus to ensure that the fetus is in good condition.
Especially for this virus infection itself, there are no drugs that are specifically given to kill the virus because in adults, this infection will heal by itself. In pregnant women the same, no drugs are given specifically, but it requires close monitoring of the condition of the fetus to ensure the fetus does not experience disruption due to CMV infection in the mother.
I hope this helps.
