Diarrhea and pregnancy contractions: What you need to know about the Zika virus and pregnancy

A new outbreak of the Zika infection in Brazil is bringing to light an important, yet overlooked, fact about pregnancy: It’s much easier to contract pregnancy complications during pregnancy than in the general population.

According to the World Health Organization, up to 80% of pregnant women in Brazil will contract Zika infections.

The WHO predicts this will result in an estimated 6 million new infections in Brazil by the end of the year.

This is not a new fact.

It’s just been widely overlooked.

It has to do with a lot of things.

The Zika virus is one of them.

In this article, I’m going to explore some of the things we know about pregnancy contractivity, explain how to detect Zika, and provide an overview of how the virus might influence your health. 

What is pregnancy contractibility?

When a pregnant woman contracts the Zika hemorrhagic fever virus, the virus can cause the brain and central nervous system (CNS) to contract, causing severe bleeding and neurological disorders.

If the hemorrhagic disease continues to persist, a person may experience fever, muscle aches, and headaches.

The symptoms and severity of pregnancy contractility are related to the length of time the virus is present in the body.

Pregnancy contractility can occur at any point during pregnancy.

If a woman is infected while pregnant, her brain and brainstem (brain stem) cells are able to contract.

The resulting brain injury and damage may cause severe neurologic symptoms, including seizures, memory loss, and loss of coordination.

This could lead to severe developmental delays, including brain palsy.

This has happened in a number of cases in the United States, but in Brazil, the number of reported cases is more than 3 million. 

How can I spot pregnancy contractability? 

To help people understand what to look for, I’ll share some tips on how to spot pregnancy and neurologic complications in pregnancy. 

Pregnancy contractability in the population: In the United Kingdom, the UK Pregnancy and Childbirth Cohort Study reported that pregnant women who had experienced a mild case of Zika were less likely to contract the hemorrhagics during pregnancy and had less neurologic impairment during the pregnancy.

In Brazil, these numbers were even more negative, as the number and severity in the pregnancy contracted cases was also lower than in other countries.

The authors wrote that the negative pregnancy contractativity could be due to the fact that in Brazil women who contract Zika were not more likely to develop neurologic abnormalities than those who contract the virus at a lower level. 

In this study, the most common symptoms of pregnancy contracted were mild dehydration, muscle cramps, and headache.

These symptoms were not common enough to cause any problems with blood pressure, heart rate, or other physiological signs.

However, in the second wave of the study, these symptoms were significantly more common. 

Other pregnancy complications: The World Health Organisation has found that pregnancy contractiveness is associated with a higher risk of severe fetal malformations, including Down syndrome, neural tube defects, and congenital heart defects. 

The WHO is warning pregnant women to limit their travel to countries where Zika has been detected.

As of August 4, the United Nations is recommending that pregnant Brazilians be screened for Zika. 

However, Brazil has been the only country in the world to officially declare that Zika is not causing pregnancy complications. 

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that the number-one reason pregnant women get Zika infections is due to contractions of the brain stem cells.

It is possible that contractions are the most severe complication of Zika infection.
