If you become pregnant with iui and you experience symptoms of Corona soon after, should you be worried about losing the fetus? And what extra precautions should you take?
Answer: At present, most experts believe that a corona virus infection in pregnant women probably does not pose a risk of birth defects. You cannot be entirely sure until you can later see how it actually relates to children born by women who have been infected with coronavirus during pregnancy. If signs of corona virus infection occur during pregnancy, you should talk to your GP or birth center about whether there are any special examinations or other things that the health authorities recommend. If you get high fever while pregnant (over 39ºC) due to an infection, there may be an increased risk of miscarriage.
