Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My wife has a history of two earlier miscarriages which occurred during the first trimester in the first month. We consulted a local gynecologist and the problem turned up to be high toxoplasmic infection reading was IgG 82. She received Rovamycin Forte for three months along with other supplements like Folinext and Ecosprin for six months. Now my wife is pregnant. Again we visited the doctor and she advised to perform toxoplasma IgG which again came back positive with IgG 78. Her first day of the last menses was 27th February. She has been receiving Rovamycin Forte once again and Duphaston, Folxt, Ecosprin and Doxinate. But now the problem is, she is unwell and been vomiting nearly every day during evening hours. There is a little brown discharge seen. In this situation, I am very much concerned about what will happen next? Will it be a miscarriage for the third time? Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

We consider toxoplasmosis when IgM are positive, it means the person has an active infection. When IgG are positive, it means you are protected from future infection. Your wife is in her first week of pregnancy, so spotting is a common finding due to implantation. Vomiting is also common until 12 weeks. She does not have to worry about it. She can try small frequent meals, baked bread, etc. I recommend an ultrasound at five or six weeks to evaluate the well-being of pregnancy. The symptoms that you prescribe does not mean that it will be a future miscarriage. It is common in every pregnancy. If this pregnancy terminate spontaneously, then after that you have to perform several examinations. But I recommend you to be positive.

Investigations to be done

Ultrasound scan.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
