I have been in combination birth control pills for over a year and recently got MMR shots. I had a fever and diarrhea and got pregnant during the symptoms. Is this an issue? Will the MMR cause birth defects?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
MMR is measles, mumps and rubella vaccine. Rubella specifically has a hazardous effect on pregnancy if occurs during the first trimester. If the shots were more than a month from your last period date, then you should not worry so much, as the antibodies are already formed, but if it is less than a month between the shots and a missed period, I guess it becomes risky. Please revert back with your vaccine date and last menstrual date. Congenital rubella can cause cardiovascular defects, congenital cataracts and hearing issues in the baby.
