People who are pregnant should call their doctor if they have symptoms like: heavy bleeding, fever, cough, vomiting, light-colored urine, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing, and a stiff neck, a U.S. health official said.
These symptoms can be mild and could include: feeling cold or clammy, feeling tired or short of breath, feeling lightheaded or lightheaded-like, or having trouble thinking clearly or concentrating, the official said, citing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
If you have any of these symptoms, call your doctor.
If you don’t have symptoms, ask your doctor if she can prescribe ibuprofens.
Ibuprofs can be used to treat infections in the uterus or other organs, and some have been used to help treat high blood pressure and heart attacks.
The medications can help to relieve the pain associated with pregnancy and other medical conditions, the CDC said.
