With the reports that the H1N1 virus has been hitting pregnant women hard it is being advise that all pregnant and those trying to conceive get the vaccine. Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center has written a post on their tubal reversal blog advising their tubal reversal patients to do the same.
With a pregnant woman’s immune system already being compromised contracting the H1N1 virus can be deadly. In the United States 28 pregnant women have already died and the experts are saying it is going to get worse.
On the tubal reversal message board at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center patients have been discussing the H1N1 or Swine Flu virus. Not only are they concerned for their children but some are finally getting close to their surgery date and fear contracting the virus and having to cancel.
One of the issues that have been popping up all over the news is the choice not to get vaccinated. Many state that they are afraid of the side effects of the H1N1 vaccine and are not getting it. But, what about getting the swine flu and having a high temperature? This can cause harm to the developing fetus. What about low birth weight and premature birth?
One of the answers that is being written everywhere is that the vaccine has not been tested on pregnant women. But, how does this outweigh the death of 28 pregnant women in the United States also from the H1N1 virus?
The Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center has an excellent message board where this is being addressed by tubal reversal patients. These are not just patients they are concerned moms and professionals.
