My husband and I are planning to visit Egypt several months from now. We have been told that Egypt is a "malaria risk area." We will be in a number of parts of Egypt.
You face a possible dilemma. Whether or not to become pregnant and, if so, whether or not to go to Egypt.
The CDC states that: "It is best if you can postpone travel to a malaria risk-area during your pregnancy. If not, taking an antimalarial (a drug to prevent malaria) and preventing mosquito bites is recommended to reduce, but not eliminate, the risk of developing malaria. Experience with the antimalarials mefloquine and chloroquine indicate that they are safe to take during pregnancy, including the first trimester." (The first trimester is the first three months of pregnancy.)
