When you are pregnant, your body is more susceptible to infections as the immune system is weak during pregnancy. Hence, it is important to take proper care of your health while being pregnant.

Fever can be caused due to the following reasons:

  1. Common cold and cough– The common cold and cough is very obvious reason to lead you towards having fever. Therefore, refrain yourself from contagious environment, and keep a clean and tidy surroundings near you.

 

  1. Influenza– The symptoms of influenza are quite similar to that of common cold, still it is regarded as a warning sign for an expectant mother. To get yourself prevented from influenza, ask your doctor for a vaccination associated with Influenza. This is good for you as well as for your baby. In addition, take proper rest, drink plenty of fluids and wash your hands with an antiseptic hand wash or use sanitizer.

 

  1. Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)– Most of the pregnant women get infected from Urinary Tract Infections during their pregnancy. This occurs due to the bacterial or fungal infection in vagina. Therefore, prevent yourself from UTI by drinking plenty of water at a regular interval of time and follow the prescribed medication.

 

  1. Hyperthyroidism– Hyperthyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland is producing excessive amount of thyroid hormones that circulates in the blood. Untreated hyperthyroidism can lead to many complications like high fever, sore throat, etc. Hyperthyroidism can be treated well by proper medication and healthy diet.

 

Is Fever harmful to your baby?
