Preparing for pregnancy requires blocking cytomegalovirus infection, one of the top ten infectious diseases

After CMV infects the body, it often lurks in the salivary glands, breasts, kidneys and other glands. The oral cavity, reproductive tract, placenta, blood transfusion or organ transplantation are all routes of transmission of this virus.

Cytomegalovirus infection is a common human viral infection and has a great impact on the healthy development of the fetus.

Cytomegalovirus can infect the fetus through the placenta, causing congenital malformations of the fetus. In severe cases, it can directly lead to miscarriage or stillbirth. For babies delivered normally, most of them will be born within a few months to Symptoms appear within a few years. The main manifestations are mental retardation, motor neuropathy, hepatosplenomegaly, jaundice, thrombocytopenic purpura and hemolytic anemia.

Blocking method:

(1) Women who are preparing to become pregnant should Do a serum test before pregnancy to determine whether there are corresponding antibodies in the body, and take early countermeasures under the guidance of a doctor to avoid primary infections during pregnancy that endanger the fetus.

(2) Women who are preparing to become pregnant should avoid going to noisy places in daily life, pay attention to hygiene, and seek medical treatment as soon as possible if suspicious symptoms occur.

(3) Try to avoid contact with patients before and during pregnancy to prevent infection and insist on moderate exercise. Arrange a balanced and reasonable diet to enhance immunity. Prevent latent infection from turning into active infection.

(4) If it is determined to be a primary infection with cytomegalovirus during pregnancy, termination of the pregnancy should be considered to avoid giving birth to a child with congenital malformations.
