Flu symptoms include fever,sorethroat, runny or stuffy nose, headaches, chills and fatigue. Some people may also have vomiting, diarrhea and respiratory symptoms confirmed influenza, especially in the second or third trimester and in the presence of other co-morbidities.
Treatment of patients with influenza like illness should not be delayed while awaiting test results as there is generally little benefit if anti-viral medication is started more than 48 hours after the onset of symptoms.
Treatment with anti-influenza medicine Oseltamivir (Tamiflu) may be offered to pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy.
