Colds are more common diseases in life. In addition, the recent temperature has plummeted, and many people have the symptoms of runny nose and sneezing.Ordinary people can take cold medicine, but pregnant women cannot.Because for pregnant women, colds are not a trivial matter. If you use medication at will during pregnancy, it will have a adverse effect on the baby.
So, what should I do if pregnant women have a cold and fever?Come to listen to Fan Xiaobin, director of the obstetrics and gynecology department of Xi’an Third Hospital.
The immunity is more susceptible to a cold during pregnancy
Ms. Peng, who lives in the western suburbs, does not understand that she had a good body before, and she was usually not easy to catch a cold and fever. She suffered from three colds during pregnancy.Director Fan Xiaobin said that during pregnancy, most pregnant women will go through at least a test of a cold.Due to weakening resistance during pregnancy, physical fatigue, anemia tendency, uneven nutrition, and increased pressure, women have more conditions for colds than those who do not conceive.
Pregnancy is a new life in his body, and consumes more thermal energy than before. Therefore, about 3 % -4 % of pregnant women tend to have anemia.Although the blood volume during pregnancy has increased, the increase in it is only water, the concentration of remarks becomes thinner, and the immune capacity weakens.
In addition, pregnant women are prone to colds, and because their lower body is prone to cold and sweat.During pregnancy, below the waist is prone to congestion and poor blood circulation, which makes the lower body easily cool. Once the circulation cannot be smooth, the body temperature adjustment function will have problems. Due to the increase in blood volume during pregnancy, the temperature will rise with the role of hormones.High and easy to sweat.Sweating itself is not a bad thing, but it will make your body feel cold.In this way, after the body experienced a sharp temperature difference, it was easy to catch a cold.
Treat pregnant women with a scientific attitude
"A slight cold may not be so unbearable, but a cold is not the same thing, nor can it be passed. Especially pregnant women should treat colds scientifically." Director Fan Xiaobin suggested thatIf the condition is not very serious, it is light cold, and there are no symptoms such as cough, tonsil inflammation, and fever. The impact on the fetus has little effect.get well.
Generally speaking, the symptoms of discomfort can be relieved by the following methods: First, feel itchy and painful of the pharynx and throat, and you can rinse the mouth and throat with light saline.Secondly, pour hot water of about 40 degrees Celsius in the insulation tea cup. Put your mouth and nose at the mouth of the tea cup and constantly inhale the hot steam, 3 times a day, about 10 minutes each time.In addition, if you have a headache, you can drink some ginger brown sugar water to relieve the disease.
However, if pregnant women have a serious cold, for example, when pregnant women have more than 38.5 degrees Celsius, in addition to physical cooling, consider taking antipyretic drugs, because excessive body temperature will affect the development of fetal nervous system.Or when pregnant women feel respiratory tract infection and severe cough, the severe cough will vibrate the abdomen and may also cause miscarriage.
Under normal circumstances, it is not advisable to take medicine in the first three months of pregnancy. At this time, it is a critical moment of pregnancy. The embryo is rapidly differentiated in the first three months.At this time, if you use medicine, the probability of an abnormal baby will have a greater probability.Therefore, avoid taking any drugs within the first three months of pregnancy, but if there is a high fever at this time, it should be different.If pregnant women have been pregnant for three months and have a serious cold, they can consider going to the hospital for medical treatment and take the medicine according to the doctor’s order.
Do not take medicine hard and carry more damage to the fetus
In the exchanges with pregnant women in the outpatient clinic, Director Fan Xiaobin found that pregnant women have some common misunderstandings about medication during pregnancy.Some pregnant mothers believe that the traditional Chinese medicine is eased and safer, and the proprietary Chinese medicine will not cause teratogenic.In fact, some traditional Chinese medicines contain alkaloids and have certain toxicity. Therefore, the use of Chinese medicine as in western medicine in the early pregnancy is as risk of teratogenic.Some pregnant women believe that all antibiotics cannot be used.In fact, pregnant women can use antibiotic penicillin, and these antibiotics are rare in clinical practice to adversely affect the fetus.
In addition, after many pregnant mothers get sick, they are worried that taking medicine will affect the fetus, so she is carried without medicine.In fact, some diseases of pregnant mothers are also not good for the fetus.Director Fan Xiaobin reminded that if you do n’t take medicine and do n’t take medicine, he will cause greater harm to the fetus. The best way is to go to the hospital. After the doctor’s examination, consider whether to use the medicine as appropriate.
