Three months pregnant and COVID-19 positive.
Hello, I am 22 years old, female. I am three months pregnant, and I tested positive for COVID-19. I was suffering from a cold and fever, then my doctor suggested taking the COVID-19 test. My reports tested positive. Please suggest how should I take care of myself. Will it affect my child?
@rushi Hello, Here are some key considerations if you are covid positive during pregnancy- The first step should be hospitalization and care should be provided in a facility that can conduct maternal and fetal monitoring, when appropriate. The standard treatment for patients who need only home isolation includes bed rest, hydration, adequate calorie intake, paracetamol, and antiviral drugs, but with continuous evaluation of the effectiveness of the drugs in use by routine visits (medical staff), at home preferably, at least four times per week. You should immediately contact your doctor if you notice any sort of discomfort.
