Otros Tratamientos para Infecciones en el Embarazo
English Version

Dependiendo de la infección que tenga, se podría usar lo siguiente para ayudar a tratar la infección y evitar que sea transmitida a su recién nacido.

Monitoreo
Para algunas infecciones, especialmente infecciones virales como CMV y parvovirus B19 (quinta enfermedad) , no hay medicamento que trate la infección. En estos casos, su médico podría querer verla con más frecuencia para monitorearla a usted y a su bebé en desarrollo. Si su bebé en desarrollo parece estar enfermo, hay opciones de diagnóstico y tratamiento especiales disponibles. Su profesional en el cuidado de la salud discutirá con usted estas opciones y sus posibles riesgos y beneficios.

Sección Cesárea
Algunas infecciones, como herpes y VIH , se pueden transmitir a su bebé durante un parto vaginal. En algunos casos, su médico podría recomendar una sección cesárea en lugar de un parto vaginal para reducir las probabilidades de transmitir la infección a su recién nacido.
