ZIKA VIRUS AND PREGNANT WOMEN

ALERT

 
The Zika virus outbreak has been declared a global health emergency by WHO. Its risk profile has changed from a mild threat to one with serious consequences. There is now scientific consensus that Zika virus is a cause of microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome. For more information, please refer to: http://iffs.site-ym.com/page/WHO_Info

Following the many requests and concerns from pregnant women and patients at the clinic, here is some information about the Zika virus. For further details, please refer to the link below http://healthycanadians.gc.ca

 

A hatching of Zika virus has tainted many countries and territories from South and Central America, including Caribbean, Mexico and Porto Rico (for the updated list, please visit the PAHO website). Even if the risks of exposure in Canada are low, Canadians traveling to Central and South America are constantly exposed to a risk of infection.

 

Women and couple considering pregnancy
The SCFA and the RCOG recommend to avoid travelling in active virus transmission zones while being pregnant. It is also suggested to use a contraception method for six months following your return even if you or your partner do not present any apparent symptoms.
 
Pregnant women
If you are unable to delay your visit into the affected areas, the SOGC encourages pregnant women to be cautious and protect themselves from mosquitoes bites. Once you get back home and think that there are chances you might have been infected, consult your physician. It is possible he will give you a requisition for an ultrasound to monitor and detect certain conditions that might be related to the Zika virus such as microcephaly.
 
Zika Virus screening test
If you wish to take a Zika virus screening test, please refer to your doctor who will be able to guide you towards the appropriate treatment center.
