Flu Jab & TTC

(5 Posts)

I've been offered the seasonal flu jab at work. We are TTC and i'm not sure if I should go ahead with it or not? I'm pretty fit and healthy otherwise. I have always said no on previous years but not sure if I should get it this year on the chance that I might be pregnant over winter?

My instinct says not to have it but I was just wondering if anybody had any advice.

It is offered to pg women, so not sure how it could be bad for ttc.

I was told by my gp, not to have it when I was actively TTC, it is about when you have it I think. It was offered to pregnant women after 12 weeks I think. But check with gp, they will know the latest advice.

Thanks guys, I also had the 12 week thing in my head. I don't want to ask the peeps at work so will give my health practice a call
