I got infected by toxoplasma during my pregnancy—should I have an abortion?
| Nezařazené

Stay calm, not yet. Your doctor must first confirm that you really became infected only during your pregnancy, which tends to be unclear after the first test. Moreover, even if you did become infected only after getting pregnant, the chances of mother‑to‑child transmission with consequent damage to the foetus are relatively low. It the first trimester, the probability is only about 15%. Despite the risk being much higher during the third semester, some 70%, toxoplasma cannot cause developmental disabilities at this stage. Toxoplasmosis alone or the sole presence of antibodies in your blood are no reason for abortion. Only some developmental disabilities are.
