I might be pregnant, and suspect that I might have been exposed to TB. What can I do to protect myself and maybe my unborn baby?

If you think you might be pregnant, visit your nearest clinic for a pregnancy test as soon as possible. If you are pregnant book for antenatal care (ANC) at the nearest clinic as soon as you confirm your pregnancy. When you book at the ANC clinic you will be tested for both HIV and TB. It is important that you book early so that any disease is picked up and you can get treatment so both you and your baby are protected. Visit your clinic regularly for check-ups as advised by your nurse or doctor.
