Strep throat and pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Strep throat and pregnancy


Avatar n tn The last two times that I gave him oral sex I broke out in the most painful blisters on my tonsils. I went to the Dr. because I thought that I had strep throat and the test came back as just a virus, however, I don't know what virus.
Avatar m tn I am 14 weeks pregnant. I went to my GP on 12/18 with a 100 low fever and a sore throat. Had a strep test done and it was positive. Got prescribed amoxicillin which I started right away. I am very nauseous and throw up a lot because of the pregnancy. I took the antibiotics for 5 days but then stopped because they made me even more nauseous. Got my sore throat back on 12/25 but this time it hurts even more. I don't really have a fever (99.7).
Avatar f tn The only way to confirm that you have strep throat is by a throat culture (or rapid strep test) in your doctor's office. Even if you do, it's probably a good idea to continue using your CPAP, since having inflammation in your throat will worsen your sleep apnea. In most cases, what feels just like strep (pain, difficulty swallowing) is usually not due to the specific strain of strep that we test for (Group A beta-hemolytic). Many other conditions can give you the same symptoms.
Avatar f tn So just found out i have strep throat and am only 10 weeks and 3 days pregnant. They gave me amoxicillin for ten days scared it wld hurt baby but if the doctor recommended then it has to b safe right. ?
Avatar m tn So in the past week and a half I began to get what looked like strep in the back of my throat. Swollen tonsils and little white dots accompanied by of course a sore throat. Usually when this occurs it comes with a fever this time it didn't. I then started to notice bumps on the back of my tongue followed by about 2 days of my tongue slightly swelling. I found that abnormal for having strep throat but figured it might be just a different strain.
533880 tn?1237612452 Since Thanksgiving I have had the flu three times and I have had step throat 2 times. I have never had the flu or strep before, in the last month and a half I have had strep twice. At first I thought I had the flu, constant high fevers, my body was swore, could not eat, no vomiting, but after one week with that I would get a sore throat and that is when I would notice the white patches in the back of my throat. Is this the usually pattern of strep throat.
Avatar f tn Anyone had strep throat while preg. I think I might have it and I'm going to call the Dr. I'll have to call my OB as I don't have a primary. I was wondering if anyone had been in the same boat though and what the Dr. did or perscribed.
Avatar f tn ve been sleeping with the windows open these past few days but I ended up looking in the mirror and I noticed 2 white bumps back there. I also feel really tired and my body feels sore. Is this strep possibly? Are there pregnancy safe home remedies I can try to cure it on my own?
1624191 tn?1299191803 Two months later I had a fever and sore throat. I went to my doctor back in Missouri and the tests said it was Strep throat. Is Strep a symptom of HIV? Or could a viral infection be mistaken for strep? Also would a blood test after two months from sex session show a reliable result whether it is HIV or not?
Avatar n tn Okay - I've seen this question asked a million places and a million different ways but none of the answers were the same and none of the questions were very much like my situation so I figured I'd give it a try (sorry if you've seen this a ton of times before!). My boyfriend is in the military and the last two times I've gone to visit him on base I have performed unprotected oral sex and gotten strep throat.
Avatar n tn I am a litte over 5 weeks pregnant and I have strep throat. I have cough. Can this hurt the baby? I am also on amoxicillin. Is this safe?
Avatar f tn Hi , today when I woke up my throat started hurting and it was like tickling my throat or something because it was making me cough. and it's kind of hard to swallow. do you know what I could possibly have ?
Avatar f tn My question... could I have given myself strep throat (or another kind of throat infection) by giving oral sex after vaginial intercourse. This in something I have hardly ever done (ie oral sex after intercourse) but now I have strep throat. I haven't gone to the doctor, just started amoxicillian I have here (four kids) and it has cleared up (also a rash on my face) in a few days. Is it a coincidence or do I need to avoid this act in the future.
Avatar n tn Also of people get fever and feel really sick with a strep inection but sometimes all you have is a chronic sore throat. If you let a strep infection go for a long time without treatment it can make you seriously ill and could even kill you.That is rare but it does happen. Go to the doc. A simple exam and maybe a throat swab should reveal the cause of your sore throat. Good luck, hope you feel better.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone, recently I went to the doctor with a nasty sore throat that had started to get swollen and accumulate white spots. He tested me for strep and found that it was not that, and my lymph nodes are not swollen for it to be mono. He said it was a viral infection that should last about three to four days. Anyway, the next day, I performed oral sex on my boyfriend. The day after that, I realized the infection had gotten even worse (at least to me). Could this have exacerbated the problem?

290018 tn?1240365868 strep throat are there white or yellow spot on the back on his throat and is is eyes red a he looks pale could be a possibility
Avatar f tn My brother tested positive for strep throat today and I've been around him..they're supposed yo induce on Monday. If I am to come down with strep will they still induce? How soon will strep affect me if I've caught it? And is there anything I can do meanwhile to help fight any bacteria I've already been exposed to?
Avatar f tn What you are describing sounds more like strep throat. Do you have a fever? Strep throat can be quite painful when swallowing and cause a general feeling of malaise, with whitish "dots" appearing in the back of your throat. If left untreated, strep throat can lead to other more serious complications. You should seek medical attention.
Avatar m tn In fact, my son once got a staph infection in his throat that mimicked strep and thank God he was on antibiotics because they thought he had strep at first.
Avatar n tn m really hungry and have an empty stomach. However, the strep throat may not be the reason for the PVCs. Doctors typically can provide no explanation for what causes PVCs in a person that otherwise has no heart problems and avoids stimulants like caffeine and certain cold medicines. If you were taking cold meds. during your recent illness that could have increased your PVCs. Just a hunch... Take care and try to relax.
Avatar f tn I've had strep throat like symptoms, but it's not strep throat. I've had 4 different doctors do 4 different swabs, one of which when to the CDC, they all came back clean. I've been to an ear nose and throat doctor who scoped me and saw nothing. An allergist who prescribed me antiviral meds (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 1000mg), steroids to help with swelling and other medications to previously try. Needless to say, they haven't worked.
Avatar f tn about a month ago (8/20), I went to an urgent care center and was tested for Strep via Rapid Strep Test.. test came back positive (although the line was so faint, the PA had to point it out to me, and I could still barely see it) After looking at my throat everyday with a flash light.. I noticed not much was changing as far as the look of things (back of my tongue had large taste buds and and some redness on tonsils) went back to the UCC on 9/17 and doctor told me it looks normal..
Avatar n tn Give his doctor a call who saw him and did his throat swabbing for strep this week and discuss it with them. Also give him plenty of tylenol for comfort and if he won't take it orally, you can buy suppositories to give him rectally to help with pain relief.
