Based on current knowledge, the greatest risk for complications from Zika is to a pregnant woman's fetus. According to the Vital Signs report, pregnant women can take the following actions:
- Avoid travel to any area with Zika.
- Take preventive steps such as wearing insect repellent.
- Talk to her doctor first if she must travel to an area with Zika, and get tested for Zika between 2 and 12 weeks after returning.
- Use latex condoms, the right way, every time or choose not to have any type of sex with a partner who has been in an area with Zika.
