a heart beating on an ultrasound. However, the heart is
not fully developed; it consists of two heart tubes that

Red dog and pregnancy
Red dogs, rubella, is a viral disease. In the past, red dogs were a very
common childhood disease, but thanks to the new child vaccination program which
vaccines against measles, mumps and rubella, these diseases are not very common
Special risks for pregnant women
In Sweden, all children are offered vaccination against rubella through the
child vaccination program. Vaccine against rubella has been offered to girls at
age 12 since 1974. From 1982, all children have instead been offered the
combined vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella, the MPR vaccine, at 18
months of age and a second dose at 12 years of age. age. Due to the increased
spread of measles, the second dose is now scheduled and given at the age of 6-8.
This means that most people of childbearing age have been vaccinated. Women
who are not vaccinated are advised to vaccinate well in advance of a planned
pregnancy. However, with today's vaccine coverage, the risk of getting infected
is very small.
What if a pregnant dog gets a red dog?
If a pregnant woman becomes infected with a red dog, the fetus can be
damaged. Especially if the infection is transmitted during the first eight weeks
of pregnancy, there is an increased risk of spontaneous abortion (up to 20%).
Between the eighth and twentieth week of pregnancy, transmission of infections
causes up to 50% risk of serious birth defects. After the twentieth week of
pregnancy, complications are rarely seen in the fetus.
How is it determined if the pregnant woman has had a red dog?
If you have once had a red dog, you are protected against infection for the
rest of your life. Only a blood test can certainly show if you have had an
infection, because other infections can give a picture of a disease similar to
rubella but which is not.
The blood test to examine the protection against rubella can be taken either
before pregnancy or at the first doctor's visit during pregnancy.
Can you vaccinate against red dogs?
If the blood test is negative, you have no protection against red dogs. If
the blood test is taken before you become pregnant, you may choose to vaccinate
and receive full protection against rubella during pregnancy. Vaccination should
be done at least three months before you become pregnant, as it is inappropriate
to be vaccinated during pregnancy itself. All pregnant women who have had a
negative result on a blood test should be vaccinated against rubella after
giving birth - given possible additional pregnancies.
