CMV (Cytomegalovirus)

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a virus that causes infections that often pass unnoticed. 

A cytomegalovirus infection in pregnant women can cause damage to the fetus.

This is the most common congenital fetal infection in industrialized countries.

In early pregnancy the physician will perform a blood test to check whether or not you have already had the virus.

In non-immunized pregnant women, the risk of infection is increased by the fact of having a toddler, working at a daycare center or with the elderly and/or immunosuppressed.

Chlamydiae

Intracellular bacteria that generate serious upper gynecologic urinary infections (cervicitis, adnexitis), leading to abdominal pain, fever, leukorrhea and bleeding outside menstruation. Unfortunately, this infection can also be asymptomatic.
It can lead to intra-abdominal adhesions and cause fertility problems due to obstruction of the fallopian tubes.
