Testing During Pregnancy

Testing During PregnancyThere is a greater risk to a pregnant woman and her baby if TB disease is not diagnosed and treated.  

TB skin testing is considered both valid and safe throughout pregnancy. TB blood tests also are safe to use during pregnancy, but have not been evaluated for diagnosing TB infection in pregnant women. Other tests are needed to show if a person has TB disease.
