Immunosuppression during pregnancy and herpes infection

Immunosuppression during pregnancy is a physiological response. Immunity is reduced to the mother's body does not reject the developing child, the fabric of which are foreign to the body of the mother. That's why pregnant women are aggravated all chronic infection.

Herpes infection may be caused by different types of herpes virus. Thus, Herpes simplex I virus usually causes "cold" on lips, and type II - genital herpes. The latter is particularly dangerous for pregnant women.

A feature of herpes is that just once in the human body, it stays there for life, "hiding" in clusters of nerve cells (ganglia) and comes out in the form of relapses only with a decrease in immunity.

Most of the population are healthy carriers of the herpes virus. If a woman is infected with herpes simplex virus Herpes simplex - in fact, not so simple  Herpes simplex - in fact, not so simple
   Type II before pregnancy, then her body to develop antibodies to the pathogen, which protect the child in utero. Much more dangerous this type of contracting herpes during pregnancy. In such a case the child for a while, until the formation of antibodies remains vulnerable to viruses. A child can become infected by the mother during childbirth when passing through the birth canal.

Yet herpes is not "fatal" infection, intrauterine infection of the fetus is quite rare, especially if a pregnant woman is constantly seen in the antenatal clinic and her about the need for the treatment of herpes infections. Therefore, genital herpes is no reason for abortion.

Zovirax during pregnancy

Zovirax - a well-known antiviral drug acyclovir Acyclovir - as it is safe?  Acyclovir - as it is safe?
 Which action in pregnant women studied is better than the effect of other antiviral drugs.

Zovirax peculiarity is that it is inactive against normal cells, including cells of the developing fetus. Its mechanism of action is based on the fact that this drug is activated by a special enzyme which is isolated virus-infected cells. Activated Zovirax Zovirax - time-proven antiviral drug  Zovirax - time-proven antiviral drug
   rapidly penetrates the cell membrane, and due to its similarity with some elements of the virus is a part of the genetic apparatus, blocking it in the process of viral replication. Unable to replicate viruses quickly enough "leave the battlefield" and are hiding in the nerve ganglia. This is enough to ensure a safe pregnancy.

Clinical trials found that Zovirax does not have teratogenic effects on the fetus, that is not cause malformations in the baby. But a woman alone can not take this medication as it is administered at certain times of the safest pregnancy for a certain procedure.

Do I need to take Zovirax during pregnancy

Practice shows that it is necessary. Despite the fact that the herpes relatively rarely provides complications in the fetus, they are still there. So, intrauterine infection caused by the herpes virus often causes severe, sometimes incompatible with life lesions of the brain of the child. In addition, multiple lesions can develop internal organs, such as pneumonia Pneumonia - Symptoms and Causes  Pneumonia - Symptoms and Causes
 , Hepatitis, and so on.

If the infection occurred during childbirth, most often a child appear cold sores on the skin and mucous membranes, which is also very dangerous because they tend to spread rapidly and generalization (the defeat of the whole body).

Children with intrauterine infection caused by herpes and infected during childbirth with skin manifestations are treated by intravenous drip Zovirax. If there is a rash on the skin, then they applied the cream Zovirax sites not to disturb skin respiration child. Treatment of these children is carried out only in the hospital and continued long-term.

The use of Zovirax rates during pregnancy can significantly reduce the risk of both intrauterine infection of the fetus and its infection during childbirth.

Zovirax (acyclovir) is the safest for pregnant women anti-viral drug that allows many women to bear and give birth to a healthy baby if they have a herpes infection.

Hofitol when toxicosis - treatment during pregnancy

 hofitol when toxicosis
 Hofitol - a non-toxic herbal drug that has a beneficial effect on the liver and kidneys. Despite the fact that the instructions for Hofitol silent on its use for treating toxemia during pregnancy, in clinical practice, it is used as in the early and late in pregnancy toxicosis. But appoint hofitol during pregnancy may be a doctor.

Hofitol toxicosis in early pregnancy

Early pregnancy toxicosis developed mainly during the first trimester (first 12 weeks). Reasons for early abortion not fully revealed until now. It is believed that a complex infringement of adaptation of the organism under the influence of changes in the state of the nervous and endocrine systems, which developed in the restructuring of their activities during pregnancy.

Such violations can not affect the metabolism Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
 , Resulting in the body produces a lot of toxic products of metabolism, causing symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and drooling.

For the excretion of toxic products of metabolism from the body is very important condition of liver and kidney: liver toxins are destroyed and the kidneys are displayed.

Hofitol has a beneficial effect on the kidneys and the liver, and therefore can not assist in the early toxicosis. It helps to improve metabolism in the liver cells, removes bile stasis (including intrahepatic), thereby improving, the liver and biliary tract. In addition, it has a slight diuretic effect, which promotes the excretion of metabolic products. After a course of treatment Hofitol Hofitol - has beneficial effects on liver function  Hofitol - has beneficial effects on liver function
   in pregnant women with the presence of early toxicity stop nausea, vomiting, drooling, improved appetite.

Unfortunately, there is no reliable data on the effects of the drug on the fetus during the first weeks of pregnancy. It is known that in this period there is a bookmark of its organs and tissues, so drugs (even the most innocuous) to take undesirable.

In connection with this application Chophytol in the first trimester of pregnancy to reduce the symptoms of early toxicity should take place only under the supervision of a physician.

Hofitol late toxicosis during pregnancy - gestosis

The instructions to Hofitol no recommendation for its use in gestosis, however, this drug is used in the complex treatment of these conditions. Reasons gestosis, as well as an early abortion pregnant, has not been clarified definitively.

It is believed that the development of gestosis is associated with disruption of the smallest blood vessels - capillaries. They disturbed blood circulation, leading to a total of circulatory disorders, including the vessels of the placenta. Circulatory disorders appear first in the form of edema, followed by a high blood pressure Blood pressure - dangerous if his swing?  Blood pressure - dangerous if his swing?
   and protein losses in the urine. Finally, in the absence of treatment begin serious brain damage - a condition called preeclampsia and eclampsia.

Status of liver and kidney in gestosis is important. Process begins with metabolic disorders in cells lining inside blood vessels (endothelial cells), which leads to a decrease in the function of these cells, which normally prevent the accumulation of blood cells (mainly platelets) from the vessel walls (antiplatelet effect). As a result, the capillaries are formed clots and broken blood circulation.

Status of the liver also contributes to the circulatory disorders. In liver cells the metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
 That reduces the formation of blood vessels expanding substance prostacyclin and thromboxane increase education, promotes thrombosis. Prostacyclin deficiency leads to a narrowing of blood vessels, and accumulation of thromboxane to disruption of blood flow.

Thus, the condition of the liver can significantly influence the development of preeclampsia. Therefore, some obstetricians in the complex treatment of gestosis introduced hofitol. Influenced Chophytol improves metabolism in the liver cells (hepatocytes), removed intrahepatic bile stasis, which also improves the function of hepatocytes.

Improving liver function results in partial or complete (depending on the stage and condition of the woman preeclampsia) restoring patency of capillaries and of the entire vascular system.

Of course, the use of one Chophytol gestosis is unlikely to help, but choose wisely as part of comprehensive treatment of this drug will be useful. Dose and duration of Chophytol chosen for each patient individually.
