Which Must Be Done If Pregnant Women Have Measles?
Afternoon. I want to ask, what should I do at this time … A week ago I was exposed to measles and was pregnant. Gestational age may only be 3 weeks. I am very worried about my womb …
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Measles infection is a form of viral infection that attacks the body. Generally, measles infection attacks children through their teens. however, if you do not have immunity against the measles virus, it is possible that you can be infected with measles. Measles infection during pregnancy generally does not cause disability in infants. but there will still be an increased risk of miscarriage, premature birth, or low birth weight.
for the time being you can do include:
Drink lots of water to prevent dehydration.
Get plenty of rest and avoid sunlight while the eyes are still sensitive to light.
Take fever-lowering medications and pain relievers which are sold freely at pharmacies, such as paracetamol.
Eat lots of fibrous and healthy food
It is a good idea to check with your obstetrician to get further evaluation and examination related to your complaints and concerns.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
