Making sure that you have reliable and up-to-date information about the Zika virus as you go through fertility treatment cycles makes a lot of sense. You want to be able to take the proper precautions without becoming overly diligent or anxious.
One of the most reliable sources of information regarding the Zika virus and pregnancy is the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
Zika Virus Concerns While Trying to Conceive
Due to the level of concern about this virus, we are printing one poster/fact sheet that the CDC has written and distributed. You will find two copies here, in English and Spanish. Here is the link for other fact sheets on other aspects of this virus.
If you have any questions at all about a possible exposure while trying to conceive or in the middle of a fertility treatment cycle, please speak with your fertility specialist or other health care provider.
If you have a question that you would rather ask here, or you are without a health care provider at this time, you may post your question and it will be kept private. I will forward your question to one of Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut's (RMACT) five board certified Reproductive Endocrinologists and get an answer back to you quickly. And privately.
We know that having a safe pregnancy is of paramount importance to you.
It is to us as well.
Please read this information carefully.
