The impact of cold on the fetus
Colds are divided into ordinary colds and flow virus. If they are just a general cold, they are mainly manifested in sneezing, stuffy nose, and no fever. The symptoms are mild.In this case, pregnant women generally have no impact on the fetus.
If the symptoms of colds are more severe, if the fever does not retreat, and a cold caused by the influenza virus infection, the cold may have a certain impact on the fetus.
Generally speaking, the impact of colds in the early pregnancy on the fetus is relatively greater, because this period is a critical period for the development of various organs of the fetus.The impact of colds in the middle and third trimester of colds on the fetus is relatively small, because during this period, the organs of the fetus are basically formed and rarely cause adverse effects.However, if a severe cold occurs during this period, a long period of high fever will hinder the development of the fetus in the uterus.
