When pregnancy is dangerous
Infectious diseases of the expectant mother can adversely affect the health of the child. These include active forms of primary tuberculosis infection. The main indication for termination of pregnancy in the first trimester (up to 12 weeks) is a common destructive process in a woman’s lungs, which cannot be treated if it has occurred and worsened during a previous pregnancy.
Severe forms of viral hepatitis also pose a serious danger during pregnancy. In this disease, deaths in pregnant women are three times higher than in non-pregnant women. It is especially dangerous infection in the last trimester of pregnancy, when the risk of death of the mother increases many times. In the chronic form of viral hepatitis, the onset of pregnancy, as a rule, does not worsen the general condition of the woman. However, the risk of infection of the fetus is high, and it has not yet been proved that a cesarean section allows you to avoid infecting the child with viral hepatitis.
Another terrible enemy of a pregnant woman is rubella.This infectious disease, occurring almost unnoticed in children, can lead to spontaneous abortion or cause serious fetal malformations (microcephaly, meningitis, cataracts). In cases where a woman did not suffer from rubella in childhood, she needs to be vaccinated and protected within six months after her.
Non-infectious diseases that pose a serious danger to a pregnant woman include: severe endocrine system diseases (including diabetes mellitus), severe heart disease, and hypertension with circulatory disorders, liver cirrhosis; serious lung diseases with respiratory failure, kidney disease leading to chronic renal failure (glomerulonephritis); systemic diseases of connective tissue (lupus erythematosus), severe mental illness and epilepsy.
Any oncological diseases are a contraindication for pregnancy, since they may increase the growth of tumors. However, with treatment started after 12 weeks, a positive trend is likely.
