Hi doctor,

I am 33 weeks pregnant now. I had slight fever and muscle aches recently. I am scared about listeria while pregnant. Could you please tell me the symptoms of listeria? Also if it is listeria, how long will it take to affect the baby? I need some advice about listeria please.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Symptoms of mild listeriosis include fever, muscle ache, nausea and diarrhea. Rarely in severe cases, there is meningitis.
  • You should have a history of taking infected raw milk, cheese, vegetables or meat.
  • You should proceed to your doctor as you need blood tests if you suspect you are having this along with a history of exposure.
