Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.
Unfortunately there is not much you can do if you will not take medication. This is a very unwise choice on her part.
Has she had a flu shot?
This is a high fever given the pregnancy, and she needs immediate medical attention.
She needs medication such as acetominophen or paracetomol to bring down the fever and likely antibiotics.
If influenza is suspected, she may need an antiviral medication.
Not using medication to bring down a fever in pregnancy can lead to brain damage and preterm delivery. Not treating infection can lead to infection in the placenta and loss of the baby or early delivery.
Its not wise to do nothing
No I reallly dont think you should wait if the medication did not bring her temp down.
Take her to the hospital
I would appreciate if you would give a positive rating, as it does rate my service
