Conception for a cold: is it dangerous for a child?


When spouses try to get pregnant, it is very important that their health is in excellent condition. After all, conception during a cold may not occur due to a weakened body or during pregnancy there will be difficulties while taking certain antiviral or anti-influenza drugs.

Little bit about a cold

In general, the common cold is a complex of various respiratory infectious diseases, which are manifested by catarrhal inflammation of the mucous tissues of the respiratory structures. Colds are considered the most common diseases, because adults manage to have them up to three times a year, and children - up to six. This is a highly contagious infection that spreads easily among the population through the airborne route.

The term cold is an infection of viral origin, although the disease can develop in several forms like a normal infection without a fever, ARVI with hyperthermia, flu, tonsillitis or ARVI with complications of a bacterial nature such as sinusitis, bronchitis, etc.). These pathologies can ambiguously affect the organic activity of the patient. Minor catarrhal ailments affect only the nasopharyngeal area, without provoking any reproductive changes, but the flu and infection with a fever have a rather heavy effect on the body, affecting its functionality. In such situations, conception with a cold can not quite clearly manifest itself in the process of gestation or the development of the fetus.

Does the cold-spleen ferment fertilization?

It happens that spouses long enough and thoroughly plan the upcoming conception, but to no avail. Suddenly, fertilization suddenly happens, when a wife, spouse, or both are experiencing a cold sickness against the background of ARVI. Why does this happen? Experts explain this phenomenon by the influence of physiological or psychological factors.

  • In the first case, the onset of the long-awaited conception of a child with a cold is due to a decrease in the patient's immunity. Just some women have fairly strong immunoglobulins that prevent sperm from moving to the egg. And in a state of catarrhal ailments, the immune barrier cannot withstand male germ cells, therefore it is possible to conceive a child.
  • And in the case of psychological influence, a cold sickness helps the spouses to distract from unsuccessful attempts to get pregnant. Just in the process of planning a couple, and especially its female half, is experiencing a stressful state. After all, spouses are counting and hoping that everything will work out, but conception does not occur. And in the case of a cold when a child is conceived, the spouses are relaxed due to painful indisposition, they do not focus on the success of the event, which helps in achieving the goal.

And in some cases, under the influence of SARS, the birth of a new life, on the contrary, does not occur. And there is another option when the cold itself is a consequence of the already accomplished conception, against the background of which a characteristic decrease in the immune defense occurs.

SARS at the woman

If a cold struck a woman, there are symptoms like a runny nose and cough, sore throat and nasal congestion, but there is no temperature, then such symptoms will not affect fertilization, gestation or fetal development. In such a situation, it is important to proceed with therapy in a timely manner, but only with those medicines that are permitted and safe for intrauterine development.

If fertilization has happened, implantation has occurred, but the patient has managed to catch a cold and is in a feverish state, then there should be no adverse effect on conception. The main thing is to start treatment immediately in order to avoid the progression of the disease or its complications. It is only necessary to take antipyretic on a paracetamol base when reaching 38.5 ° C.

In general, the effect of acute viral infections on conception and the course of pregnancy is determined by the severity of the infectious process and the type of medication taken. With a cold of an insignificant nature, there is nothing to fear, it does not affect the patient's reproductive functions or the functionality of her body. The main thing is to take only drugs prescribed by a specialist.

Some danger can only be a strong cough, which provokes involuntary uterine tension, which is fraught with rejection of the embryo from the uterine walls and interruption. But this happens if the uterine muscle tissue is too weak.

If the cold has a severe nature, for example, is complicated by temperature, then there is a certain risk that the signs of the disease do not affect the embryo well. The danger comes from hyperthermia, because overheating is not very useful for the fetus. At the same time it is impossible to beat down the temperature with aspirin and preparations based on it.

There is a claim that if there is an influence of an infection of viral origin on the embryo, it is possible that it will die. If there was no spontaneous interruption, then there is nothing to be afraid of, which means that the infection could not harm the fetus. If the embryonic tissues are affected, the body rejects them. If the fetus has not been affected by the infection, the child will safely survive and continue to develop.

If the future father is cold

If we have taken out the situation with a cold woman, then what can we expect from a cold husband? First, the patient is incredibly happy with her condition, because soon she will become a mother. But the joyful news can be darkened by the memory that a man at the time of conception had a cold.

  • Usually, if the husband is ill with ARVI, then for the child it does not bear any negative consequences.
  • Just sperm mature for quite a long time, more than a month, so the cold condition of the spouse does not affect the quality of sperm.
  • But if the spouse had a cold with a cold several weeks before fertilization, then difficulties may arise, especially if the respiratory infection was accompanied by fever.
  • Cold symptoms could have a negative effect on male germ cells.
  • Increasing the temperature reduces the quality and activity of sperm, making it difficult to conceive. But under the influence of hyperthermia, weaker sperm cells die, and the strongest can easily survive, so there is still a chance for fertilization.
  • After fertilization, the female body will test the embryo. If there are any complications, then the immune system will reject it and the egg just will not be fixed to the uterine wall. If the embryo can grow into the endometrium, but will be unhealthy, then a spontaneous miscarriage will occur in the earliest terms.
  • If the carrying out proceeds safely, it means that there is no need to worry.

Doctors recommend refraining from trying to conceive, if one of the spouses or both of them were undergoing treatment with serious drugs. Indeed, many of these medications are teratogenic, leading to fetal anomalies.

How flu affects conception

For influenza infections, a characteristic clinical picture is a sudden onset with a sharp rise in temperature, joint aches and headaches. Such symptoms do not contribute to the onset of conception. But after all, sperm can live in the female genital tract up to 5 days (and sometimes a week), so conception can occur several days after intimacy, when the patient has already experienced all the flu symptoms.

In such a situation, if you have a cold and it is impossible to exclude conception, it is necessary to undergo treatment as soon as possible, avoiding complications. To eliminate the intoxication manifestations it is recommended to drink plenty of liquids and to stay in bed. You also need to call the doctor, having warned him in advance about the likely conception, so that the course of treatment consists of prescriptions that are safe for the fetus and for carrying as a whole.

If it later turned out that it was possible to become pregnant, there were no suspicious symptoms, and the egg cell was successfully implanted in the uterus, then there is every reason to believe that the transferred flu did not cause any negative consequences. If the spouses are planning a pregnancy, but one of them has caught a flu infection, then for some time it is better to give up trying to conceive before the next ovulation.

Simply, the flu requires serious treatment with drugs that are dangerous to the fetus, and if they are not taken, then the likelihood of complications is high, which the child is also not helpful. The first trimester is the most important time in fetal development, because there is a laying of intraorganic systems.

How to treat?

It also happens that the patient suspects about the occurrence of pregnancy, lives in anticipation of a delay, but suddenly caught a cold. How to be treated, whether it is possible to take antibiotics, etc. It is better to apply for an appointment to a specialist. Usually in case of a cold in such cases it is recommended to wash the nasal cavity with products containing sea water, as well as to bury nasal drops based on natural oils (coniferous, eucalyptus, etc.). Also, hot brushes are recommended for eliminating congestion, it is better to refuse steaming of the legs.

Also, doctors recommend:

  1. When sore throats hold gargle with herbal decoctions such as sage or chamomile, with a solution of soda and salt, and irrigate the throat with aerosol preparations like Ingalipt or Hexoral,
  2. When coughing, breathe steam over an infusion of sage or chamomile, as well as carry out inhalation with a nebulizer with mineral water or saline, take Cinekod or Stodal,
  3. Take antiviral drugs like eleutherococcal tincture, rosehip tincture or syrup, Otsillokoktsinuma, etc.,
  4. You need to drink as much liquid as possible, better than tea with lemon or cranberry juice,
  5. Be sure to have the flu bed restraint,
  6. It is better to eat easily for the period of the illness, and the room where the patient is located should be aired regularly.

Cold prevention

In order not to doubt the correctness and safety of medical prescriptions, it is better to avoid public places where there are a large number of people during seasonal infectious diseases, and if you really need to go somewhere, you should wear a gauze bandage. In order for the body to withstand attacks of viruses, it is recommended to help it by taking vitamin complexes that enhance the immune status. Also a good prophylactic can be considered lubrication of the nasal sinuses with oxoline.

The expectant mother needs to enrich the diet with fresh vegetables / fruits, it is better to cook food for a couple. It is also useful to take daily rosehip decoction, which does not cause allergic reactions, perfectly strengthens a woman’s immune defense and nourishes the body with vitamins. But it is not recommended to drink tea with a matryoshka, which we have been brewing from our grandmothers since childhood, because this herb is contraindicated for pregnant women and can provoke intrauterine bleeding. That is why when using herbal teas, women need to be extremely careful.

Doctor's opinion

A woman who suffers from acute respiratory viral infections in the ovulatory period, attempts to conceive it is safer to postpone the next cycle. If the spouse has caught a cold and has been treated with antibiotic drugs, then conceive the child only 2-3 months after the end of antibiotic therapy, so that the seed material can be updated. If children are the intimate desire of a couple, then it is necessary to exclude unfavorable factors like flu and ARVI.

In the case of a cold, the rule is “all or nothing”, if a viral infection or flu could have a negative impact on the embryo, the patient will have a spontaneous interruption. If a viral infection could not harm the future of the crumbs, the gestation will continue safely and end with the usual birth.

Can a cold affect the conception of a child?

In some cases, a cold when conceiving a child affects the fact of fertilization, sometimes not for the worse for parents. This is true for those cases when the common cold is a phenomenon of mild acute respiratory viral infection.

Interestingly, when a cold occurs in a woman, you can become pregnant with a greater probability than in the absence of it. If symptoms of an acute respiratory viral infection occur, a slight decrease in the immune response of the female body is logical.

Some types of infertility in women are formed on the basis that there are antibodies in the cervical mucus of the cervical canal that develops immunity, which prevent transcervical penetration of spermatozoa. The action of these agents is weakened during the manifestation of a cold in the body, so these antibodies can not adversely affect spermatozoa. Thus, the sperm increases the chance to penetrate the cervical canal and meet with the egg.

Each couple knows how painful the period of attempts to conceive a child, which were not crowned with success. Each of the couple assumes a diagnosis of infertility and can not fully relax. That psychological factor does not allow this pregnancy to occur. When a cold arises, the couple is simply distracted from the immediate problem of pregnancy, throwing his attention to treatment. Relieving stress and tension increases the likelihood of conception.

If the cold turns into a severe form or it turns out to be the flu, which can often be complicated by bacterial infections, a negative effect on the germ cells is possible.

Pregnancy and cold

It is impossible to avoid all diseases when planning a pregnancy, when a woman looks after her health more than ever. Even without leaving your home, you can get infected from a husband or child. But can a completely healthy baby be born at conception during a cold?

In the warm season, the most dangerous infection is rotavirus. They can be infected through unwashed fruits and vegetables, dirty hands, or contaminated unboiled water. Therefore, it is sufficient to strictly follow the rules of hygiene to protect themselves pathogens. In the autumn-winter period, on the contrary, it is not difficult to get sick. Various respiratory viral infections, including influenza, are everywhere.

Even a person with strong immunity can catch a cold. And during pregnancy, the immune forces of the body are significantly weakened. Yes, and conceive a child with a cold is not difficult.

The main thing during pregnancy is the absence of heat. Usually, doctors recommend not taking antipyretic drugs when the thermometer reads below 38.5 ° C. With drugs, you also need to be very careful, as many of them are prohibited during pregnancy, especially in the first trimester. But to start the disease, too, in no case be impossible. A woman should observe bed rest, drink a lot, flush her nose with saline solutions.

But a cold is called not only a mild course of acute respiratory viral infections, but also complications of viral diseases, as well as flu and sore throat. The probability of conceiving a child with a cold is great, so a woman needs to be alert.

Conception of a child during a cold: possible risks

If a woman develops a clinical picture of a moderate or severe manifestation of an acute respiratory viral infection or flu, there is invariably an increase in body temperature. With quite high figures of a woman's body temperature, unfortunately, the sperm cells become less active. Their achievement of the egg is unlikely.

Clinical manifestations of a cold can prevent a woman from tracking her basal temperature in order to understand if pregnancy is possible. Since the temperature will be so increased, the information content of the method is lost.

If a cold occurred before conception and lasted a day or two after it, during this time the fertilized egg still passes through the fallopian tube and is not implanted into the endometrium. That is why this kind of cold is not dangerous for the unborn child. However, if the common cold manifested itself after ovulation and after the expected date of conception, the risk of threatened abortion, congenital developmental anomalies, defects caused by viral damage is not excluded, and consequences in the form of a frozen pregnancy are not excluded.

Conception for cold women

No one is immune from the appearance of acute respiratory viral diseases at any time in life. By reducing the protective properties of the body there is a great opportunity to get infected with a virus, which compromises the manifestation of the disease. If a woman fell ill precisely on the day of conception or before, or if the phenomenon of a viral infection has mild manifestations, then there is nothing to worry about. These infections affect only the nasopharynx and, with proper treatment, do not involve the reproductive system.

A mild cold after conception before implantation is not dangerous. The fertilized egg is implanted in the endometrium of the uterus not on the day of conception, it takes time to pass through the fallopian tubes, get into the uterus and attach.

Если во время зачатия болела простудой женщина, то несмотря на легкое заболевание, ей нужно обратиться за медицинской помощью. Только врач сможет оценить адекватно состояние вашего здоровья, а также наличие либо отсутствие осложнений от данной инфекции. When joining the bacterial flora in the form of sinusitis, bronchitis, tonsillitis, it is necessary to take measures in the form of prescribing approved, but at the same time necessary for the body, drugs.

If viral manifestations have a moderate or severe degree, then it is impossible to identify which virus provoked the infection, and how it will affect the forming zygote.

If conception occurred during a cold on the lips, that is, during the manifestation of a herpetic infection, specialist advice is needed. This type of infection in the early stages can be dangerous for a developing embryo.

Cold in the first week after conception

There are cases when happy parents, seeing two strips on the test, can not hide the joy of such a desired pregnancy. However, the feeling of unlimited happiness is replaced by a sense of comprehensive anxiety. This happens at a time when a woman begins to feel weakness, malaise, catarrhal symptoms, runny nose, tearing, and sometimes sore throat.

What to do in this case? There are undoubtedly risks. Since there are a large number of virus strains and their effect on the developing embryo is quite different. In case of a mild course of acute respiratory viral infection, it is necessary first of all to consult a doctor, as self-treatment will not bring positive results.

An increase in body temperature rather adversely affects the developing embryo, viral agents can provoke abnormalities in the development of the fetus, since it is in the first 12 weeks that the period of embryogenesis occurs - the formation of all organs and tissues of the fetus. The influence of viruses, of course, can lead to disastrous consequences. However, with the appearance of fetal malformations due to exposure to viral agents, this pregnancy is most likely either spontaneously interrupted or results in a frozen pregnancy.

In most incidents in these cases, a positive outcome is recorded. Even if the infection is complicated by bronchitis, and even pneumonia, you should not despair, as there are antibacterial drugs allowed during pregnancy. Although their appointment is undesirable in the first trimester, there is still a chance for a successful outcome. In any case, to identify any pathologies, fetal developmental abnormalities, there is a screening examination, which is performed twice during the 2 trimester of pregnancy. The examinations include both biochemical screening and ultrasound screening, which can accurately indicate the presence or absence of pathologies.

How to treat a cold when planning a pregnancy?

Therapy for acute respiratory viral infections during conception, as well as after pregnancy has some peculiarities. If there are mild manifestations with catarrhal phenomena, then copious drinking, bed rest, constant rinsing of the throat and rinsing the nose can correct the situation without any consequences.

Herbal immunomodulatory agents can be used as prescribed by the doctor.

With nasal congestion, the use of Pinosol is permitted, as its composition includes herbal ingredients.

With increasing temperature may use drugs containing paracetamol. However, in case of hyperthermic reactions, it is urgently necessary to consult a doctor in order not to miss the complications and not to harm yourself and your pregnancy.

If cold complications in the form of bronchitis, tonsillitis, sinusitis are initiated, then antibacterial drugs may be taken even in the initial stage of pregnancy.

Do not stay with the problem of cold and one-on-one pregnancy. An independent search for a solution to the problem on the Internet will not give positive results, however, it may aggravate the situation, both for your body and for the body of the unborn baby. In any case, it is necessary to consult a doctor who will give you the necessary advice necessary for recovery.

Cold and conception

Many couples are faced with the fact that with long planning and excellent health of the spouses pregnancy does not occur. But with a cold, conceiving a child is more likely than in a healthy state. This phenomenon can be explained by the following reasons:

  1. Psychological. With long and unsuccessful planning of pregnancy, the spouses begin to experience stress. Too much fixation on the desired conception makes intimacy a test - will it work out this time? As a result, nothing comes out, and the next time, tension and stress only increase. If one of the spouses is sick, then the couple in this situation does not think about conception. Both relax mentally and physically, and the woman becomes pregnant.
  2. Physiological. It happens that a healthy woman cannot get pregnant for a long time, but at the same time she and her partner do not have infertility. A possible explanation for this is too strong a woman’s immunity. The fact is that pregnancy begins within a week after fertilization, since its counting by the body is carried out from the moment of attachment of the ovum to the uterine wall. It happens that the sperm successfully fertilized the egg, but the fetal egg can not attach to the uterus. The body perceives it as an alien body and rejects. If fertilization occurs on the background of reduced immunity, the body forces do not have time to react to the attachment of the ovum, and pregnancy begins.

Man's cold

Spermatozoa undergo a maturation phase for approximately one month. If a man fell ill a few days before conception, then it will not affect the quality of sperm. Another thing is that he can infect his wife. Therefore, the cold of the husband at the time of conception is not dangerous if it does not get sick woman.

If a man had an infectious disease a month before conception, the quality of sperm could have decreased. A significant increase in temperature makes the spermatozoa inactive, so fertilization is unlikely. But since it did happen, it means that the disease did not have a serious effect. In addition, only the strongest sperm can survive at high temperatures.

The situation is different if the viral disease was complicated by a bacterial infection. Then the possible impact of complications on the quality of germ cells. But even in this case, only the most healthy and strong sperm cell could reach the egg cell. If, nevertheless, fertilization happened with the help of an altered male cell, then there is a high probability that the female organism will reject the embryo in the earliest terms.

The only serious concern is the fact that a man took potent medications several days or weeks before conception. Antibiotics affect sexual function. Many drugs have a teratogenic effect, which means that possible fetal abnormalities cannot be excluded. But you should not panic, you just need to carefully monitor the progress of pregnancy.

Woman's cold

You can get pregnant with a cold. A woman’s illness affects pregnancy in a different way than a man’s. But, again, it all depends on the severity of the disease and the drugs taken shortly before conception. If the disease is mild, without hyperthermia, affecting only the nasopharynx, then there is nothing dangerous. Simple ARVI usually does not affect the embryo.

High body temperature (above 38.5) can be dangerous for pregnancy. If at the time of ovulation the woman had a high fever, then conception most likely will not occur (at least with such poor health, the woman is usually not up for sex). But if the pregnancy nevertheless came, it means that the hyperthermia had no effect on the quality of the egg.

The same goes for high temperatures in the first days after conception. If a serious impact is exerted, the embryo will either not be able to attach to the uterus, or it will be rejected soon. The woman does not even know that she was pregnant.

If a cold woman has a suspicion that a few days ago she could become pregnant, then you need to prevent the development of a protracted illness. In this case, you can take only medications approved in the first trimester with the active ingredient paracetamol.

Preparations with acetylsalicylic acid during gestation are strictly prohibited. Traditional medicine should also be used carefully. Many medicinal herbs have an abortive effect.

Impact of the disease on the fertilized egg

After conception, it takes several days before the embryo is implanted into the uterine cavity. This period is called preimplantation. At this time, all cells of the embryo are equal. If the disease during fertilization adversely affects one of them, then do not worry.

The remaining cells will perform the function of the damaged. In this case, nothing threatens the embryo, and it will be successfully attached to the body of the uterus. From this moment begins the pregnancy and the development of the unborn child.

If the effect on the fertilized egg with a cold was significant, then the embryo will simply be rejected, and pregnancy will not come. In normal times, a woman will start menstruating.

Doctors half in jest call it "all or nothing." That is, either the embryo is healthy, viable, and then the pregnancy comes, or the embryo is defective, and it will be removed from the body.

Pregnancy planning for colds

It happens that a woman really wants to get pregnant, but before the planned conception of a child, one spouse falls ill. In this case, there are two options - either wait until the next cycle, or try to conceive, no matter what. Which of the options to choose depends on the following factors:

  1. Who exactly of the spouses caught a cold before conceiving a child. Although it is unlikely that one will infect the other. Yes, and the incubation period is different, it can last for 1 day, or maybe 10. If the wife caught the first cold, then, most likely, by the middle of the cycle there will be a recovery. Even if the husband gets infected, it will not harm conception and future pregnancy. But if the husband had first been ill, then the woman may get sick just in time for the ovulation period or soon after. It already threatens miscarriage.
  2. How long before the ovulation began the disease. The later after ovulation the disease manifested itself, the safer. The course of a banal respiratory virus lasts no more than 7 days, and by the time favorable for conception a woman will be healthy. If the disease is delayed or starts close to the middle of the cycle, it is better to suffer another month and continue the planning of conception in the subsequent cycle.
  3. The complexity of the flow. Infections are different, from the banal cold to the flu or tonsillitis. The most dangerous are bacterial infections and influenza virus. All diseases that are accompanied by high fever should be a reason to postpone conception.
  4. What is the treatment. Paracetamol-based preparations, lozenges for sucking, safe irrigation sprays, homeopathic remedies should not affect the future course of pregnancy. Therefore, if the treatment was carried out approved in the first trimester of drugs, then nothing to worry about. You can continue planning for pregnancy. But after antibiotics and other serious drugs that are prohibited for use in the first months of pregnancy, enough time should pass. Some substances are removed from the body for longer than seven days, and it is impossible to guarantee that they will not harm the future embryo. Therefore, taking antibiotics is an indication for planning conception in the next cycle. Although some experts advise to postpone it for three months.

Cold and fertilization

Features of the reproductive processes in the female body are such that the expectant mother does not immediately learn about pregnancy. Most often, she can be convinced of her position only after 2–3 weeks. And it is not uncommon for one of the parents to have a cold during the supposed fertilization. Conception and colds or colds during the cold season are especially common.

Does this condition somehow affect the development of pregnancy and the health of the child? Is the cold and the conception that is dangerous? What can this threaten in the future, and what measures to take?

Impact on Fertilized Egg

From the moment of conception, at least 5–7 days should pass in order for the fertilized egg to reach the place in the uterus where it can attach. After attachment or implantation, the active development of the future child, the formation of his organs and systems will begin. And this will be a time when any effect on the maternal organism is unsafe.

The time span before the fertilized egg is attached is called the preimplantation period. At this time all the cells of the future embryo are the same. If the external factor damages some part, the rest will take over their function. If the damage is significant, the germ will simply die. Pregnancy is interrupted, and the woman will begin monthly in the usual period.

This is the law that gynecologists are talking about - “all or nothing”. The pre-implantation period is safe in relation to the development of fetal defects, but may end in abortion.

Conception planning

Sometimes a different situation happens. It happens that a married couple is planning a long-term pregnancy, preparing for it, but a woman or a man fall ill at the beginning of the cycle. What to do in this case? Is it necessary to postpone conception for another month or can you continue planning without paying attention to the disease?

There will be no clear answer in this situation. To select the optimal solution, you need to consider a number of factors:

  1. Who is the source of the infection - husband or wife?
  2. When did the disease happen?
  3. Type of infection.
  4. Prescribed treatment.

Source of infection

The person who gets sick first is likely to infect another. In terms of living together it is almost impossible to protect yourself from infection. The incubation period for different diseases is also different - from one to ten days.

If the first wife got sick and infected her husband after some time, by the time of conception they can fully recover both. But even if the man continues to hurt, it won't hurt pregnancy.

If the source of infection is a man, then the wife may feel the first signs of the disease after a few days. And the height of the disease will come later - at the time of conception or after it. Since ORVI is difficult to predict, even a doctor will not be able to say for sure how many days the illness will last and whether there will be complications. In this situation it is better to be safe and postpone conception.

Time of illness

The earlier the disease happened before ovulation, the greater the chance of success. The common cold in the first days of the menstrual cycle does not threaten the future conception. The couple can calmly continue planning and monitoring the condition of the woman. As a rule, such infections do not last more than a week and a few days before ovulation, the expectant mother will be completely healthy.

If the disease develops immediately before ovulation, you need to think. Even the most innocent cold can have a long or two-wave current. A safe period after ovulation is not so long. Perhaps, after weighing all the factors, it makes sense to wait another month.

Type of infection

Colds are different. They can develop after hypothermia or with reduced immunity, and then the pathogens will be the microbes that live in our body. But they can be of infectious origin and caused by a variety of viruses. The most famous of them are:

  • adenovirus,
  • parainfluenza
  • flu,
  • rhinovirus,
  • enteroviruses and others.

The first three pathogens can cause severe or prolonged illness.


Adenovirus infection is manifested by sore throat, fever, conjunctivitis. Sometimes intestinal disorders join. The temperature can rise above 38 degrees.

The disease is quite contagious. Its main feature is the propensity for a protracted or undulating course. Very often, against the background of normalization of temperature and the almost complete disappearance of symptoms, a second wave of fever appears.

There is another version of the course - in the form of a long subfebrile condition, lingering weakness, and indisposition. Temperatures up to 37.5 degrees, lasting more than a week, are also called temperature plumes.

Planning a pregnancy with a disease similar to an adenovirus infection is not worth it.

The disease in its course is a bit like the flu, but it is easier. Parainfluenza is characterized by frequent lesions of the larynx and bronchi. Usually occurs in the form of laryngitis and bronchitis. Temperatures may rise above 38 degrees. Cough sometimes lasts up to three weeks.

Parainfluenza is contagious, spreading rapidly. Contact persons become ill after 1–2 days.

Given the tendency to develop bronchitis and a protracted process, conception is better to postpone for a month.

The flu speaks for itself. It is a highly contagious disease that spreads rapidly and often occurs as an epidemic. If one spouse is sick, the other is almost always ill.

Болезнь протекает тяжело, с ломотой в суставах, головными болями, высокой температурой. Характерно плохое самочувствие, когда заболевший буквально лежит пластом. Есть у гриппа и еще одна особенность – астено-невротический синдром после выздоровления.

Он может проявляться такими симптомами:

  • вялость,
  • усталость,
  • апатия и сонливость,
  • упадок сил,
  • отсутствие аппетита,
  • невысокая температура.

The asteno-neurotic syndrome lasts for one to two weeks and requires full recovery and rest for the body. To get pregnant on the background of the flu or immediately after it is highly undesirable.

Prescribed treatment

In order to decide on the possibility of becoming pregnant in this cycle, it is necessary to take into account the treatment being taken.

If a doctor prescribes antipyretic or antiallergic drugs, vitamins, homeopathic remedies, then their reception will not harm the unborn child.

If the disease turned out to be serious and antibacterial treatment was required, pregnancy is not recommended. It is better to postpone conception for at least a month. Some antibiotics, contraindicated in pregnancy, are not excreted from the body one day, but more than a week. And it may well be that a pill taken before conception will have a negative effect on the unborn child.

New pregnancy

What to do if the pregnancy did come, but the disease was found out too late? The main thing in this case is to relax and accept the situation. The calmer the expectant mother, the greater the chances of the child. Nature has taken care to protect the baby as much as possible in the earliest period. And, most likely, everything will end well.

But at the same time it is necessary to visit a doctor and tell about the symptoms of the disease and the accepted treatment. Sometimes consultation of genetics and additional analyzes is required. A timely medical examination will minimize the risks, and parents can safely enjoy the expectation of the baby.

Types of unwanted viruses

Meanwhile, SARS, influenza and acute respiratory infections have a viral nature, adversely affecting our immunity. We list these viruses:

  • Rhinoviruses (cause almost half of colds)
  • Parainfluenza and flu viruses
  • Coronaviruses, echoviruses and reoviruses
  • Syncytial respiratory viruses
  • Enteroviruses and cytomegaloviruses

As a rule, three days after the onset of the disease, the virus “leaves” the body, but infections of bacterial origin or herpes viruses in the body “build up” to the weakened immunity. And if you consider that during the carrying of the child, the female body “works” with a double load, then the pregnancy process with a cold can be complicated, and the normal development of the fetus can be disturbed. In some cases, viruses, penetrating into the fetus through the placenta, can lead to missed abortion.

Colds are terrible for their complications, so a pregnant woman’s immunity may not cope with the exacerbation of chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal system, kidneys, liver, and the risk of pneumonia, and the need to take antibiotics can also negatively affect fetal development.

Conception during a cold is very likely to be made difficult by the presence of these factors. For example, during illness, pregnant women are not advised to undergo certain types of tests, as well as to visit some specialists and carry out certain studies.

As a rule, during a cold, the appetite decreases, so future moms will not be able to provide their body and fetus with sufficient amounts of vitamins and healthy substances. In addition, the healthy state of both parents is very important, so the question whether you can conceive a child with a cold is relevant for both the woman and the father of her child.

Any catarrhal disease can adversely affect the maturation of the follicles and the development of the egg, whose early release may be due to the presence of high body temperature of the expectant mother. By the way, this factor contributes to a significant decrease in the activity of spermatozoa in the genital tract, and reduce the duration of their life cycle.

Possible consequences

It should be noted that in the case when a woman planning to become a mother has a disease caused by the flu virus, the question of whether you can become pregnant with a cold, can not even be put on the agenda, since this ailment can cause severe consequences and pathologies. Influenza causes a threat of miscarriage, the appearance of severe defects in the future baby, having a congenital nature. Future pregnancy can lead to fetal fading.

Viruses in early pregnancy, and especially after conception, when the laying of future tissues and organs begins, can damage the embryo and cause pathological mutations in the fetus. Moreover, it is impossible to predict where, when, at what stage, which organ may have dangerous defects in development.

In short, couples planning to have a baby should try not to get sick with colds during the conception of the baby, and future mothers - during pregnancy.

Is it possible to plan pregnancy in the season of ARVI?

Gynecologists strongly recommend to abandon the planning of pregnancy in the season of SARS. Any cold requires treatment and, as a rule, during this period the doctor prescribes antibiotics or antiviral medications. A woman who plans to become a mother, taking medication is extremely contraindicated. In addition, at this time of year, the body lacks vitamins, so the immune system is very weak.

How to be treated

In the first weeks of pregnancy, all organs and body systems of the child are laid down. This is a very responsible time, and any extraneous impact may adversely affect the development of the fetus. Therefore, in no case should you take medicine without a doctor's prescription. Safe for the health of the unborn child:

  • take a decoction of dogrose in a small amount
  • drink tea with raspberry jam,
  • wash the nasal passages with saline solutions,
  • gargle with chamomile decoction,
  • lubricate the nose with pine oils
  • air the room regularly.

Soaring feet for treating colds during pregnancy is prohibited! If complications threaten during the planning period of pregnancy, it is better to be treated with prescribed medications and postpone conception.

The decision on antibiotic treatment can be made during pregnancy, if the disease seriously endangers the health or even the life of the mother. Assign drugs to the future mother should only a doctor.

If the father is sick

If ARVI is accompanied by fever, then you need to understand that a certain number of sperm will simply die, only the strongest will survive.

When fertilization occurs, the female body will test the embryo. If complications are detected, the immune system of the expectant mother will reject the embryo, the egg will not attach to the uterine wall. If the embryo grows into the endometrium, it will not be healthy, a spontaneous miscarriage will occur.

When mother fell ill

Experts do not recommend planning a pregnancy during a cold. A slight cough and runny nose will not affect conception, however, if you add increased body temperature to these symptoms, a negative effect is not excluded.

The presence of SARS in the mother is dangerous occurrence:

  • uterine tension
  • hyperthermia,
  • rejection of the fetus.

For example, a strong cough during SARS can provoke involuntary uterine tension, as a result of which the embryo will be rejected from the uterus, and this will result in the termination of pregnancy.

At temperature, there is a risk for the fetus, namely hyperthermia - overheating, it is extremely undesirable for a future baby.

The presence of a viral infection can be transmitted to the fetus, and the mother’s immune system will try to get rid of it, to save the pregnancy in this case is not easy.

Cold during ovulation

Ovules are reliably protected from all sorts of negative influences, so no diseases will prevent the cells from fertilizing and moving through the fallopian tubes. It should be noted that the cells are extremely sensitive to radiation and toxic effects. In other words, taking medications will certainly affect the state of the egg.

Can I get pregnant at a temperature

The temperature of a woman does not affect the likelihood of pregnancy. However, as it rises, the doctor prescribes the use of antipyretic drugs that are dangerous to the health of the future baby. Therefore, conception should occur when both partners are ready for it, especially for health reasons.

Influenza in early pregnancy

Before the delay of menstruation in the period from the first to the fourth obstetric week of pregnancy, the zygote lives autonomously. It is protected from all viruses, but after fertilization, when a cell attaches to the wall of the uterus, it develops and becomes completely dependent on all the processes occurring in the body. The flu at the very beginning of pregnancy is very dangerous for the woman and the fetus, because viruses can penetrate the baby’s cells and damage them.

The probability of developing fetal pathologies, in the case of conception during a cold of one of the expectant parents, increases significantly, and the cause is not the cold or the flu itself, but the drugs that are used in the treatment of the ailment. That is why attempts to get pregnant should be postponed until full recovery.

Is it possible to plan pregnancy with a cold: how does ARVI affect ovulation, the process of conceiving a child, can one become pregnant

Couples who dream of becoming parents, are preparing for pregnancy extremely reverently: exclude from the diet harmful foods, give up bad habits. However, often all plans destroys, it would seem, the most common disease - a cold.

If you have colds, and in both future parents, gynecologists recommend to postpone the planning stage for another time. Otherwise, the likelihood of serious complications.

Conception during a cold

Preparing for such an important event as pregnancy is one of the most important stages in the life of every woman.

Many couples, especially those who are preparing to become parents for the first time, are especially responsible for this.

They prepare the body in various ways: play sports, eat right, eliminate comorbidities, and give up bad habits.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to protect yourself from all harmful effects. It may happen that conception occurs with a cold, because a woman learns about the onset of an interesting situation only after at least two weeks from the moment of fertilization. Let us consider in more detail what will happen if you become pregnant during a cold, what dangers can survive during the development of the fetus and after the birth of the baby.

Conception in case of indisposition

The problem of the inability to conceive a child for a long time is known to more than 15% of married couples leading regular sex life without protection. In medicine, there are cases when a child was conceived with a cold in one of the spouses. On this occasion, there are two points of view - psychological and physiological, on the basis of which physicians explain this fact.

Is it worth worrying when conceiving during a cold

As for situations where pregnancy does not occur due to psychological problems, then a big role is played by the moment of distraction of the man and the woman from the true goal. Future parents stop trying to conceive, and begin to try to get rid of cold. The bottom line is that the obsession to become parents as soon as possible acts as a kind of barrier.

During sexual intercourse, spouses begin to think only about whether they will receive fertilization this time or not. As a result, the goal is not achieved, because they can not relax as much as possible.

Many people ask, during a cold, is it possible to get pregnant, and doctors give a positive answer to it, but already taking into account the physiological processes.

Sometimes conception can occur against the background of a decrease in the protective function of the body of the expectant mother.

The fact is that some women by nature have excessively resistant immunoglobulins, which do not allow active sperm to break through the barrier and reach the egg cell.

Since the protective ability decreases with ARVI, cells that were previously considered alien can penetrate to their target without any special interferences.

It is also worth noting that pregnancy itself can also be the reason for the cold coming after conception, because after fertilization of the egg during the first few days the immune system is weakened, so that spontaneous rejection of the fetus does not occur.

Varieties of cold

To unambiguously understand what relationship has conception and ARVI, it is worth considering the types of these diseases. In most cases, colds are commonly referred to as infection of the body with viruses.

On this basis, doctors distinguish several varieties:

  1. Typical acute respiratory viral infection, which occurs in a mild form, without increasing body temperature,
  2. Severe ARVI, the main symptoms of which are high body temperature, as well as a state of fever,
  3. Flu,
  4. Complications after a mild respiratory viral disease, in which patients develop long-lasting bronchitis or sinusitis,
  5. Angina.

Each of the presented diseases has a different effect on the body of a man and a woman. For example, if a cold is mild, the lesion spreads only to the nasopharynx, and the reproductive organs are functioning normally. In the second case, the pathology affects the fertility system, which leads to disruptions in its work.

Cold after conception

As for whether you can get pregnant with a cold, it is relatively clear. It is also necessary to find out if there is a danger if the expectant mother has the flu after conception.

In the event of such symptoms as fever, cough, runny nose, aching joints, you should consult a doctor who will prescribe the right medications, and you should drink plenty of warm drinks.

Answering the question of whether a cold affects conception, we can safely say that there is a certain effect, but its strength directly depends on the degree of complexity of the disease. The specialist will definitely advise the expectant mother to adhere to the maximum strict bed rest, and later the gynecologist will put the woman under special control.

Almost all women are interested in whether it is possible to get pregnant with a cold, and doctors tell them that ARVI is not an obstacle for this. In the case of conception, the most dangerous periods are considered to be 5-7 days, since at this time the process of implantation of the ovum to the walls of the uterus occurs.

During the first four obstetric weeks of pregnancy, the zygote has its own protection, so the effects of viruses are not dangerous for it. But after the process of growth of the ovum accelerates, these resources become insufficient, and the embryo can be exposed to harmful effects.

Planning pregnancy and cold: what to do?

During pregnancy, our body lowers its level of protection, since the embryo at the first stage of its development is considered "alien" for our body. Therefore, in the event of pregnancy, it is highly likely that a woman can get sick with something.

The organism of the future mother is especially susceptible to infections and colds, with which it is so easy and simple to get infected. And this means that if the planning of pregnancy and the common cold coincided, then an infection may remain in your body that will make itself felt during the pregnancy itself.

This will be discussed in our article.

When you are pregnant, sometimes it seems that the whole world wants to harm us. The bus is moving too fast, the wind is blowing too much, then September has come at the wrong time.

But, nevertheless, even constantly suspecting and protecting everyone from all dangers, it is impossible to completely exclude the likelihood of any infection in your body. And this can not be afraid or upset because of this - this is absolutely normal.

Well, think about it yourself, how can you get rid of what is constantly in the air?

Of course, in summer it is more difficult to get sick if you are simply protected - wash your hands after the street, process fruits and vegetables and just follow the rules of hygiene. However, the summer is almost over, and now the viruses are attacking.

In the autumn, the supply of vitamins obtained in the summer is still in effect, but the stronger the cold, the more fiercely viruses and infections fight with our protective coat.

SARS, bronchitis, pharyngitis and everything else - all this is literally everywhere, flying through the air and can’t hide from it.

Disease at the time of conception

Of course, at the very beginning of pregnancy, a woman very, very rarely knows that she has become pregnant. As a rule, the first two or three weeks the body does not show any signs of pregnancy.

And precisely at this time, Mommy, unfortunately, can run without a hat, sit on a cold one and just get ARVI as you please.

In addition, there is a high probability that during the conception of a child, one of the future parents had a cold, or was simply infected with ARVI.

ORVI have a future father?

Men are much easier during pregnancy - their immunity remains at the same level as it was.

Поэтому, если во время зачатия ребенка будущий отец не кашлял каждые пятнадцать секунд – можно быть уверенной, что ОРВИ вашему будущему ребенку не навредит.

Однако, планирование беременности и простуда не совместимы от слова «совсем», поэтому, если вы видите, что ваш партнер болен, то не стоит напрягать его и требовать любви – лучше дайте ему отдохнуть и набраться сил.

ОРВИ с температурой или грипп очень влияют на подвижность сперматозоидов, поэтому, вероятнее всего, если ваш мужчина болеет, то зачатия просто не произойдет. Such is the brutal method of contraception on the part of men.

SARS at the future mother?

The common cold cannot affect the mother's eggs as it affects the father's spermatozoa, since the eggs do not get renewed during life - new ones are not formed. Therefore, the woman's body appreciates and protects them, giving them a very serious protection.

After fertilization, the egg cell reaches a place in the uterus, where it can attach itself and begin to develop as an embryo within 5-7 days.

Accordingly, after it has found its place and the direct birth of a new life takes place, your body becomes quite vulnerable.

Accordingly, if during this period some dangerous external influence occurs - that is, the mother's illness - the fetus will simply die, and the girl will not even notice that she was pregnant for some time.

The pre-implantation period is safe in terms of the development of the fetus, but it is very dangerous because any trifle, even the usual SARS can end with abortion.

  5. Pregnancy planning

For couples who want to get a pregnancy with all their hearts, the time of its planning, as well as the time of gestation, are periods of rather strong excitement, anxiety that something will go wrong.

In the process of pregravid preparation, as well as during short periods of pregnancy, a common fact is the appearance of colds in both women and men. Doesn’t hurt conceiving a child a cold? What preventive measures to take? About everything in this article.

In some cases, a cold when conceiving a child affects the fact of fertilization, sometimes not for the worse for parents. This is true for those cases when the common cold is a phenomenon of mild acute respiratory viral infection.

Interestingly, when a cold occurs in a woman, you can become pregnant with a greater probability than in the absence of it. If symptoms of an acute respiratory viral infection occur, a slight decrease in the immune response of the female body is logical.

Some types of infertility in women are formed on the basis that there are antibodies in the cervical mucus of the cervical canal that develops immunity, which prevent transcervical penetration of spermatozoa.

The action of these agents is weakened during the manifestation of a cold in the body, so these antibodies can not adversely affect spermatozoa.

Thus, the sperm increases the chance to penetrate the cervical canal and meet with the egg.

Each couple knows how painful the period of attempts to conceive a child, which were not crowned with success. Each of the couple assumes a diagnosis of infertility and can not fully relax.

That psychological factor does not allow this pregnancy to occur. When a cold arises, the couple is simply distracted from the immediate problem of pregnancy, throwing his attention to treatment.

Relieving stress and tension increases the likelihood of conception.

If the cold turns into a severe form or it turns out to be the flu, which can often be complicated by bacterial infections, a negative effect on the germ cells is possible.

Common cold when planning pregnancy

The common cold is an undesirable moment in conceiving a child, however, sometimes it can contribute to meeting male and female germ cells by relieving psychological stress (a woman and a man often think more about the treatment of the disease than about the need to conceive).

A common cold can be an aid in conceiving even with those types of infertility, which are caused by the presence of antibodies in the cervical mucus of the cervical canal, which reduce sperm motility or immobilize them.

However, colds in early pregnancy can be dangerous for the fetus.

Conception for cold husband

Neither a woman nor a man are insured against acute respiratory viral infection. Conception of the child during the cold of the husband is also possible. Viral lesions can also occur in male germ cells - sperm.

A mild infection, and especially a cold before conception, will not cause any morphological changes in the germ cells, which is not the case for the severe manifestations of the infection. Indeed, viral agents can affect the activity, sperm motility, and their structure.

But it is worth reassuring future parents, saying the moment that the egg is fertilized by one of the highest quality, agile and healthy sperm. Most likely, this representative of the male germ cells has no abnormalities, as he had the opportunity to overcome all the barriers to reaching the egg.

In the case of a serious condition that could affect the sperm, conception in the cold period simply would not have occurred.

Myths and real dangers of conception during a cold

Every person suffers with a cold in varying degrees, and several times a year. It would seem that nothing terrible she should not bring, because the danger is only her complications.

In fact, the common cold can become a destructive force for those women in whose body conception occurs during the illness - the birth of a new life.

For those couples who are planning to have children in their family, conceiving with a cold and possible consequences are of great importance.

Does the disease harm the future child's health?

Some people believe that during a cold, the forces of the body are spent on healing, and we can’t definitely speak about a possible conception. In fact, it is not. Experts have found that too much immunity in a woman is the factor due to which conception did not occur earlier.

You can check this by testing for antibodies to hCG, which in a woman should normally be absent. Thanks to antibodies, immune cells reject the cell that appeared in the endometrium. That is why with a cold, conception is not even possible, but very likely.

It is only important to ensure that after conception the cold is cured as quickly as possible.

It seems that if the organism of the future mother is in a state of illness, then this will certainly affect the health of the future child. In fact, for the first couple weeks of conception this does not matter much, and here is why.

Colds usually affect the upper respiratory tract, which are not related to the genitals. In addition, a healthy egg and a sperm cell are required to conceive a child. A female egg has the potential for health that was given to her in the womb.

Male sperm cells are formed for 72 days, which means that a cold in a man in the present will not affect the quality of his sperm.

Drugs during ovulation and conception

It is their reception that can significantly worsen the probability of conception. Cold medicine can reduce sperm motility, which means that the very likelihood of pregnancy also decreases. For a woman, it is very important to prevent the spread of the disease during the period of ovulation, if she wants to give birth to a child and become a mother.

First, you should calm down, because nervous tension often leads to spasms, including in the uterus, and this can be a provoking factor for miscarriage.

It is advisable to consult a doctor so that he prescribes the safest drugs that have proven effectiveness, and then strictly follow the instructions of a specialist.

If, however, a visit to a specialist is impossible for some reason, the following recommendations can be observed.

First, carefully read the label and instructions of the medication, and pay special attention to contraindications and possible side effects. Preferences to give proven drugs that have appeared on the market for a long time, and therefore, have already been sufficiently studied in world practice.

Secondly, you should not mindlessly take vitamins, as many women do during conception. Vitamins with their mindless admission often cause an allergic reaction, and this is an additional stress for the body of a sick woman who wants to have a baby.

Thirdly, preference should be given to drugs acting locally, that is, in the form of sprays and absorbable lozenges. To this list can be attributed, and means, the solutions of which are necessary to gargle. Even ordinary soda and salt, which you need to add half a teaspoon to a glass of water, will do.

From the common cold, doctors recommend using xylometazoline-based products. They are commercially available both in the form of drops and in the form of a spray. They are safe enough, but they should not be used for longer than three days to eliminate the danger of the emergence of drug dependence.

Coughing is harder. Such a cold symptom, like coughing, negatively affects conception, since not only the respiratory tract spasms, but also the entire abdominal cavity, affecting the uterus and appendages as well.

In the first trimester, including during the conception and attachment of the embryo to the uterine cavity, it is possible to use drugs such as Stodal and Sinekod. They will not harm the health of the child, because they act very gently.

Folk remedies work effectively - warm tea with raspberries or honey, of course, in the absence of an allergy to these ingredients.

If it came to a high temperature, then it can only be shot down with ordinary paracetamol, which will not harm either the fetus or the pregnant woman. It is also possible to reduce the temperature by several points by wiping with cool water those places where the veins pass - wrists, area behind the ears.

And if the flu?

If a woman or a man has flu, then everything is much more serious. The virus penetrates into all parts of the human body, because it moves in the human body, including blood flow.

It negatively affects the work of some human organs and is able to permanently change their state for the worse. That is why the flu should be taken very seriously. It is believed that the influenza virus can adversely affect the process of conception.

His presence in the blood of a woman at the time of conception is more likely to cause subsequent miscarriages and pathologies during pregnancy.

It is also important that the flu is treated with only serious antiviral drugs, and it is better to save classic folk remedies for the common cold. Of course, these drugs have side effects, among which may be a decrease in fertility.

If conception during the flu occurred, and the woman was able to survive this difficult period, then with each passing week, the risk of miscarriage becomes more and more elusive.

It is very important not to get infected with the flu virus again when the formation of the child’s organs begins, because in this case, the consequences of the disease may be much worse.

In any case, if the conception during the cold period did not happen, then this can be considered a good sign, because the couple have the opportunity to correct their health after the disease and better prepare for the appearance of the child.

How does the cold affect the conception of a child?

Planning a pregnancy is undoubtedly a responsible and delicate event. A couple prepares for a long time to conceive a child, calculates a suitable day. And I want everything to go perfectly, to get pregnant from the first time and wait for the birth of the desired child.

Of course, partners pay the most attention to their health. Healthy parents are a healthy baby and vice versa.

What a disappointment when at one of the most crucial moments the state of health of one of the partners let us down - at this time the woman had a cold and an inflammatory process started in her body.

Or everything went well - you did it, you are expecting a child. You happily squeeze a pregnancy test in your hand with the right amount of strips, and then suddenly you remember that during conception you didn’t feel very well. And this is a real cause for panic. A lot of questions overcomes you. How? What if? But what if?

But, as they say, the devil is not so terrible as he is painted. We will discuss, consider, calm down and find out whether it is possible to get pregnant during a cold and what are the consequences of conceiving a child with a cold.

A pleasant surprise

Incidentally, the disease state often becomes favorable for conceiving a child. Very ironic, right? Doctors explain this as follows:

  1. First, pregnancy planning is a stressful state. And in this state, as a rule, nothing happens. And the disease, it seems, temporarily nullifies your plans. Tension subsides and, to put it in sports lexicon, you lose your vigilance and miss the ball. This is where the conception of the child takes place.
  2. The second paradox is that the organism, which has strong immunity, does not admit to itself any foreign substances. The same applies to partner sperm. And during the illness, as we know, immunity is weakened. With a positive effect on the penetration of sperm into the egg.

First you need to put the line between the concept of cold and illness. Since one can and not pay due attention, and in the second case, you must be alert.

So, as it grows, the seriousness of the situation increases:

In the latter two cases, it is worth being extremely attentive to your well-being. If conception occurred against the background of the disease, consult your doctor.

How does a cold affect a man?

If a man gets sick, everything is very clear. SARS without temperature can in no way affect the quality of sperm and the result of conceiving a child. Therefore, are you going to start this delicate matter, or is it completely with ARVI without temperature, then there is nothing to worry about.

It implies a temporary ailment in the upper part of the body, but it does not affect the lower part (responsible).

As for ARVI with the presence of temperature (as a rule, the problem is considered to be from 38 and above), here everything is a little different. The fact is that this state inhibits the development and quality of sperm. Simply, they will not be able to fertilize an egg.

But if we take into account the factor that they develop in the course of a month, then the old spermatozoa may very well accomplish everything that was started. And if this happened, then there is nothing to worry about.

In other words, if you are sick, then nothing will come of it. Well, if it happened, there is nothing to worry about.

Cold in women and conceiving a child

You can get pregnant with a cold, but in this case everything is much more complicated. The fact is that the female organism is in itself a storage (vessel) for the fetus. And in what condition it will be - in this will be the embryo.

  • ARVI without fever: However, if the conception occurred with ARVI without fever, then you should not worry. The only thing that is required is to prevent the disease by going to its treatment. It requires consultation with a doctor and the use of prescribed medication. In such cases, drugs are allowed for early pregnancy.
  • Acute respiratory viral infection and fever: In case the ARVI goes along with the temperature, but at the same time conception occurred - this will not affect the fetus itself. However, it is necessary to normalize the temperature. This is done only if it has crossed the 38.5 indicator. Preparations for these purposes are used on the basis of paracetomol and always with the permission of the doctor.
  • Influenza and Conception: The presence of influenza eliminates the desire to engage in conception. However, if we take note of the fact that fertilization can occur thirty-six hours after having sex, then the probability of conception is quite acceptable. In this case, you need to quickly get rid of the infection. The first is bed rest and drinking large amounts of fluid.

The second is to call a doctor, who in turn must be informed of a possible pregnancy. Due to this, the corresponding drugs will be discharged.

Draw conclusions

As we see from the above, everything happens according to the system “whether the pan disappeared”. If conception succeeded during a cold, nothing terrible happened. And the matter remains for small - to prevent the development of the disease.

It is not necessary to postpone the conception, if one of the partners has signs of a cold - this will not affect the condition of the fetus and you can get pregnant with a cold. However, if we are talking about serious viruses, it is best to wait.

And most importantly - this is a mandatory consultation with your doctor. After all, what you are taking is involved in the construction of the fetus and any self-medication and prescribing medications for yourself can only harm.
