Today’s date is a very important topic to explain the changes and developments that pregnant women face during pregnancy
As you look forward to that special day when your baby will be born, you’re expecting your waistline to expand! But did you know that pregnancy affects your body in other ways? Early in your pregnancy, hormones cause your breasts to feel full and tender. Hormones can also cause bouts of morning sickness, especially in the first trimester. You might feel really tired and need to take frequent naps. Often these things get better in the second trimester.
After an outbreak of chickenpox, usually in childhood, the virus that causes it stays in your body, lying dormant in certain nerve cells. Although your immune system usually keeps the virus in check, anything that affects the immune system’s ability to hold back the virus — illnesses, immunosuppressive drugs, severe stress, or aging-related changes, for example — can allow the virus to return with a vengeance.
Shingles Prevention: Reduce Your Risk
The varicella-zoster virus is highly contagious. If you have not had chickenpox, it’s important that you avoid exposure to anyone known to have the infection — or even crowds where you may come in contact with the infection, particularly if you are pregnant. If you already had chickenpox, you cannot catch shingles from someone with chickenpox or shingles.
Shingles can be quite painful. Many people who see their doctor for shingles say it was the pain that ultimately led them to seek treatment. Some report that the sensation of anything brushing across the inflamed nerve endings on the skin is almost unbearable. Even when the rash is gone, postherpetic neuralgia can persist, sometimes for years.
