If you are suffering from fever during pregnancy, do not be panic or worried. Consult your gynecologist and ask for the medication. The medication will help you in quick recovery. However, you should understand the possible causes of fever during pregnancy so that you can prevent yourself from its recurrence.

Possible causes of Fever during Pregnancy

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.
  2. 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?

If you are caught up with a mild fever during the first trimester of pregnancy, then it is not much harmful to the baby. However, high fever is not good in any of the situation. The fetal development is majorly depending upon the protein of a mother’s body and high fever hinders the functioning of protein leading to the complications like miscarriage.

 

Therefore, always seek medical help if you are suffering from fever since last 24 to 36 hours or even if you are observing the symptoms of fever in yourself, as self-experiment is not all recommended during this sensitive stage of life.

Lastly, even if you are planning how to get pregnant, it is important to take prevention’s from any possible infections that can lead to fever. Remember, a healthy body gives birth to a healthy baby.

 

Hope this post helpful to my friends.
