Hello Desiana, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Toxoplasmosis is an infection caused by the parasitic Toxoplasma gondia often found in cat feces or undercooked meat. Symptoms that are usually felt include fever, weakness, painful swallowing, and swollen lymph nodes. Normally this infection will heal itself within 6 weeks due to the existence of the body's defense system, but unlike in pregnant women, this can cause serious complications to the fetus.
Toxoplasma infection can be detected through blood tests, namely immunoserological examination of Toxplasma IgM and Toxoplasma IgG. Positive IgM is a sign of infection in the past 1 year and results begin to be positive in 1-2 weeks after infection, while positive IgG results are a sign of having been infected. IgG starts positive after infection for 8 weeks or more. If your Toxoplasma IgM test results are equivocal, it is advisable to double check your Toxoplasma antibodies, because from these results it is not known whether you have been infected with Toxoplasma before or not.
If you are still in doubt, I suggest bringing your lab results to a specialist obstetric and gynecologist to consult the future plan, which is also related to the next pregnancy program.
There are things you can do right now to prevent toxoplasmosis from happening:
Avoid eating raw or undercooked meat. Wash your hands before and after handling food. Always wash fruits and vegetables before consumption. Avoid raising wild cats, because they are susceptible to parasites. gondii. Thus the information I provide, hopefully can help you.
