Last week, I had the ESTEEMED honor, pleasure, and privilege of hanging out with my new FAVE girl crew: @ladylovin! These ladies are “Doin’ it and doin’ it and doin’ it well!”
They asked me so many questions about topics ranging from: Pregnancy. Breast size before and after pregnancy….you do get to keep the pregnancy boobs, right? Stis(sexually transmitted infections); who hasn’t had chlamydia?!?! Being a vagina whisperer……girl, you better listen to your vagina! Click here to listen to our hour conversation about EVERYTHING!!!!!!
One of the questions that came up during our ANYTHING GOES chit-chat was regarding the Zika Virus. If you’ve been exposed, or even infected, when is it safe to get pregnant?
In wanting to make sure that all info presented is/was accurate, this is straight from ACOG(American college of obstetrics and gynecology)/SMFM(society for maternal fetal medicine):
Women diagnosed with ZIKA disease should wait at least 8 weeks after symptom onset to attempt pregnancy. Men diagnosed with ZIKA disease should wait at least 6 months after symptom onset to attempt pregnancy. Asymptomatic women and men with possible exposure to ZIKA should wait at least 8 weeks after exposure before attempting pregnancy.
BAM! And there you have it.
Hoping today’s blog post provided you not only with valuable information, but also a drop to your knees, laughed so hard you almost peed your pants type moment! You just gotta check out that podcast with @ladylovin.
Until next time,
