Alongside multiple uncertainties surrounding the Coronavirus, there are yet more questions to be answered when it is paired with pregnancy or the possibility of such.

Although at the moment, there is no proof that contracting the Coronavirus while pregnant will lead to any complications, it should be noted that health probabilities do not usually go well with pregnancy.

According to this organisation, this decision was made to ensure that the fertility clinics contribute their share to the fight against Coronavirus.

Still Thinking of Getting Pregnant: Possibility of Low Immunity To Fight Coronavirus

Being pregnant, in most cases, is said to reduce the strength of the immune system of the expectant mother.

According to a study, there is a high possibility that because of the introduction of new cells into the body, it may result in a reduced immunity against infection-causing organisms introduced into the body.

Relating this to the problem of a coronavirus infection, which is a viral infection, the body needs a robust immune system to fight infections from the body.

 Although there are cases of mortality and severe symptoms amongst the strong immunity group, the circumstances of recovery from the Coronavirus is still more amongst this group of the population. 

Though pregnancy tends to disrupt the immune system, in some cases is it still a great idea to get pregnant in the middle of a pandemic like a coronavirus?

However, in Nigeria, where our health system is not one to bank on, I bet you need your immune system in its best state at a time like this.

Still Thinking of Getting Pregnant: Hospitals are Death Traps Now

Aside from the risk of a low immune system during a pandemic as a result of pregnancy, pregnancy is synonymous with hospital visits in many cases. 

With hospitals topping the list of a high risk of infectious places this period, it is advisable to enjoy intimacy with your partner and not take it to the reproductive stage for now.
