Question on mumps - contageous - 4 month
Hi all!
don't know who to ask - Help please.
My sister is 4 months pregnant and we had a visitor who has just recovered from mumps - the swelling has gone down already. Was he still contageous? what must we do?
Thanks
Michelle

Mumps would not affect the pregnancy even if your sister got it.
