Testing.

My cousin just came home from Missouri where he was on base with 2 kids who died of Meningitis. He didn't get tested before he came home and I've been around him a lot and I would feel a lot better if I could get tested for it. Can you get tested for Meningitis while your pregnant?

  • I think they only test for this if you are having symptoms and what they do is test your spinal fluid. So, i don't think so. But, call your doctor and tell him you might have been exposed to this. He might be able to give you an antibiotic.
